(The Hosting News) – Fusepoint Managed Services recently announced the launch of its line of Private Cloud Hosting solutions and that it is extending its service capability to include Microsoft’s Hyper-V virtualization technology.
Delivered from one of three data centres that are Tier 1 PCI, CICA 5970 and SAS70 Type II certified, Fusepoint’s Private Clouds address data security, corporate governance and reliability concerns for companies running mission-critical applications. The company has been supporting other virtualization technologies, such as VMware, for several years and has realized strong demand in the mid-to-upper end of the market.
Fusepoint is a Microsoft Gold Certified Hosting Partner and employs Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) to design and manage complex enterprise class environments. Hyper-V is supported in the Private Cloud including the feature of live migration for running virtual machines for improved economies of scale and flexibility.
“With Fusepoint’s Private Cloud environments, organizations don’t need to worry about critical applications competing for compute resources with those of other organizations, your cloud is dedicated to your business,” said Bik Dutta, Director of Product Management at Fusepoint. “Private Clouds facilitate customization and integration with dedicated components that yield a higher-level of performance and availability for your critical infrastructure that is not always possible in Shared or Public Clouds.”
Fusepoint’s certified technical team manages Private Clouds from all angles including patching, OS, Web and DB server management, firewalls, networking, back-ups and storage, allowing customers to focus on running their core business applications.
“Combining Hyper-V, the Microsoft based server virtualization technology, with flexible licensing options available, it’s now easier than ever to take advantage of the cost savings of virtualization through Windows Server 2008 R2,” said Andrew Dixon, Vice President, Business and Marketing Officer, Microsoft Canada Inc. “This, in combination with Fusepoint’s deep Microsoft management capabilities, makes for a very compelling outsourcing offering in the Private Cloud space in Canada.”
