Hosting Builds Public, Private Clouds With Microsoft Azure Pack
Managed cloud services provider Hosting has released new public and private cloud services offerings built on Microsoft Azure Pack. The Microsoft partner is claiming a first with its new cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings.
“As the first U.S. partner to collaborate with Microsoft to develop a multi-tenant managed cloud on the Cloud OS Network (COSN), Hosting has created the benchmark of availability and security available to enterprises on the market today,” said Sean Bruton, vice president of product at Hosting, in a prepared statement. “Organizations will benefit from the level of service upon which the Hosting brand has been built while reducing the risk and cost of replacing legacy applications or building on-premise environments.”
Both the public and private cloud services support the Microsoft Cloud Platform, including Windows Server 2012 R2 with Hyper-V, System Center 2012 R2 and Windows Azure Pack. According to the company, it fully enables data and application migration to its cloud platforms through its proprietary processes, customer support and enterprise-class technologies.
“The Hosting offering of both public and private compliant cloud solutions built on the Microsoft Cloud Platform bring a unique new offering to the market,” said Aziz Benmalek, general manager of hosting solution providers at Microsoft, in a prepared statement. “Our collaboration benefits enterprises across industry verticals by giving them the flexibility and choice backed by the technological expertise of both Hosting and Microsoft.”
It’s a good example of what some partners are doing to build their own IaaS offerings and tie them into the bigger cloud providers’ own services.
