VMware vCloud Powered Services
We are proud of our status as a vCloud service provider offering VMware vCloud powered cloud services.
Through our VMware partner status we can offer a unique, evolutionary path to cloud computing that reduces IT complexity, significantly lowers costs, and enables more flexible, agile service delivery.
By combining VMware's marketing leading vSphere and vCloud Director, while exposing the vCloud API and supporting the Open Virtualization format , with our technical expertise and virtual infrastructure, iomart Hosting offers you the perfect opportunity to reduce cost and overhead whilst guaranteeing you high availability and uptime.
We help you to increase control over your own IT infrastructures while preserving the flexibility to choose any OS, application and hardware with our VMware cloud services.
Our vCloud powered services enable you to seamlessly move workloads from your own VMware based virtualised or private cloud environments to our vCloud Powered service and back again. This application portability is key to providing you with the cloud IT agility you are looking for - applications do not need re-writes and we can support the broadest set of legacy and existing applications.
Our VMware vCloud Powered services are built on the same VMware-based architecture as your internal datacenter to ensure performance, security, and application portability. By selecting iomart Hosting to support your vCloud Powered service, you can extend the logical boundaries of your own datacenter infrastructure by leveraging our data centre and IT estate quickly and easily, without losing control.
Before virtualisation, the traditional IT model was to run one application per physical server - it was a one-to-one relationship and led to server inefficiency, under utilisation and wasted resource. But with a virtualised vCloud environment, many applications can run on a physical server - it is now a many-to-one relationship.
Unlike other commodity public compute clouds that require applications to be built specifically to a single cloud computing platform and require complete re-writes of existing applications, millions of existing applications currently running on VMware can run on vCloud Powered services, without modification - giving you the flexibility to run applications where it makes the most sense for your business.
Whilst the benefits are easily defined, many people have found that creating virtualised cloud based server environments is not an easy task; it requires new skill sets and careful planning.
We give you the flexibility to create your own VMware virtualised environment or take advantage of the skills and expertise of our fully VMware certified technicians and have one built, configured and managed for you.
