vCloud Services –as the video we shared last week says- is the conjunction between the ability that one of our customers has to run their own internal private cloud and our ability to deliver them a hosted cloud on our infrastructure in one of Colt’s 19 datacenters across Europe. The uniqueness here is the ability to manage that as a single virtual datacenter.
Vmware vCloud Services of Colt are jointly branded. It’s a blueprint that’s been originally designed by VMware, to bring jointly with Colt and Tecsens, a real quality offering together. Colt has both: datacenters and a best-in-class fiber optic network. Tecsens gives you the knowledge to explode it. Only this way Tecsens can guarantee end to end Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
True is that more business critical workloads, things like Disaster Recovery Plans (DRPs) or tier 2 applications, that will eventually move also to tier 1 applications as customers get more familiar, they understand the celerity and the integrity of the offering and become more confident on the reliability of the solution. Another key advantage, regarding data protection laws, is that customers know where their data is and can better overcome compliance topics. If you want, data can be kept inside a country bounder.
The sales model changes to a consultancy engagement. Tecsens help our customers to build the environment, and to get it up and running, with the clear goal at the end that the service gets fully automated and it becomes just a self-service for our customers.
A lot of our customers today see the benefits of virtualization and see the benefits of being able to put some of their computing capabilities at the cloud. vCloud Services will actually provide the capability to move gradually different workloads into the cloud. It’s time to move on. Tecsens will make it easier
