Peak 10 expands its cloud offerings with the Virtual Private Data Center powered by resource pools
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (February 14, 2012) – Peak 10 Inc., the only data center solutions company with rock solid people, rock solid solutions and rock solid results, has enhanced its private cloud service offering by adding a new virtual private delivery option. The offering, termed Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC), provides Peak 10’s customers with the same security and data isolation sought in dedicated, private clouds along with adding the elasticity and economies of scale that can be achieved through multi-tenant resource pooling.
“Peak 10’s VPDC services are aimed at providing the same capabilities of a physical data center environment without the confines of traditional physical infrastructure such as rack space and cabling,” said Ken Seitz, Peak 10’s manager of product strategy. “The VPDC delivers private networking components, guaranteed compute resource availability and performance, and high performance, multi-tiered storage services. All of which are enhanced by elasticity, scalability and financial economies of scale which can only be achieved through some degree of multi-tenancy. It delivers on the promise of cloud in a way that a completely dedicated infrastructure never could.”
Using the new delivery model, customers can deploy, run, and manage complex, dynamic application environments underpinned by pools of computing resources managed by Peak 10. Those resources including processing power, memory, and multi-tiered storage are subscribed to and reserved in absolute terms and are not oversubscribed. These are key characteristics for Peak 10’s customers that want to use cloud services to run production workloads requiring production-class performance and availability.
“As our customers’ requirements of cloud services evolve over time, our product set must stay ahead of those needs,” said Monty Blight, Peak 10’s vice president of product management. “The resource pool model within our Virtual Private Data Center offering is an example of that. It meets the security, reliability, and flexibility needs of our customers while improving provisioning speed and operational efficiency. Customers tell us that they love the simplified licensing and cost effectiveness of the model.”
