Users are provided with resilient hosting, guaranteed resources and persistent storage, says the company.

Managed services provider Claranet has launched Claranet Virtual Data Centre, a new cloud computing service based on the delivery of enterprise-class services, fully integrating computing and network provisioning.

The new service is hosted in tier-3 equivalent data centres and it delivers guaranteed service levels ensuring high availability, low network latency, 24x7 local language support and addresses the key proposition of cloud deployments: the ability to control costs, scalability and speed of implementation, said the company.

With Claranet Virtual Data Centre, users are provided with resilient hosting, guaranteed resources (vCPU, vRAM and vStorage), and persistent storage and organisations can migrate to the cloud via its self-service portal.

With the single portal, end-users can manage both dedicated and shared cloud platforms from a single-pane-of-glass.

The cloud portal also delivers server and resource provisioning on-the-fly, as well as an ability to migrate from an existing virtual server platform into the Claranet Virtual Data Centre.

Claranet UK managing director Michel Robert said Claranet is delivering to a solution that is built entirely around the needs of the user.

Claranet¹s Virtual Data Centre is built on four key principles: security and reliability, based in the country of the customer's choice all with access to the first of up to six European nodes, with ease of network integration and a platform that is hypervisor-agnostic to facilitate migration,

said Michel Robert.
