Ashburn, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – February 12, 2009 – Managed hosting services provider, Carpathia Hosting, has added a free, easy-to-use hosting configuration tool, Carpathia ColoConfigurator (C3) for its colocation service offerings.
The online tool is designed to allow potential customers to quickly and easily build colocation solutions – a foundational component of Carpathia’s suite of managed hosting services.
Jon Greaves, Chief Technology Officer at Carpathia Hosting remarked, ”In today’s tough economic climate, businesses are looking for ways to save money and drive more from their IT investment. A barrier to achieving this goal, however, is the complexity and risk involved in migrating IT infrastructure from corporate datacenters to colocation facilities. To meet these increased demands, we’ve created C3 and a migration methodology designed to simplify the process of hosting IT infrastructure in datacenter environments. As a datacenter-neutral company, Carpathia is in a unique position to help customers meet their colocation needs in the datacenter that best fits their needs.”
C3 comes in two modes – Expert and Wizard. C3 Expert will allow potential customers who know their hosting requirements to quickly enter their colocation specifications. For prospects that need help building a custom solution, the C3 Wizard will take them through a five-step process that captures all relevant information. Both modes are aligned to ITIL V3 best practices. Once the information is submitted, a Carpathia solutions engineer will create a custom proposal that includes best practices for ensuring a smooth transition to a colocation service, delivered in two business days.
Peter Weber, CEO at Carpathia Hosting noted, ”Carpathia Hosting has successfully implemented hundreds of customers into hosted environments. During this time, we have captured best practice data to minimize the risk in relocating IT infrastructure and ensuring customers gain the expected return on investment.”
The C3 tool and methodology starts with the basics of the migration, then goes on to capture inventory, logistics, build and finally, testing and verification. The resulting proposal includes best practices around each of these five steps, along with a detailed project plan for a smooth transition to a colocation service.
