NextiraOne launches Dedicated Cloud and Disaster Recovery Suites that provide business continuity

Suites bundle wide range of products and services; easily deployed, low risk option solutions.

Lichfield, 29 January 2013 - As one of Europe's leading integrators of private Cloud Solutions, NextiraOne has launched dedicated Cloud and Disaster Recovery Suites in the UK. These suites will be based on the technology platforms of Cisco, NetApp, EMC and VMWare and will include managed services for these suites during their life cycle. They will be co-located at the Equinix LD5 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centre in Slough. Announced at this month's Cisco Live 2013 customer event, these Suites will provide a combination of complete customised IT solutions - providing the best secure service availability.

Customers looking to improve their back-up and business continuity facilities will be able to take advantage of NextiraOne's data centre and IT expertise inside Equinix's world-class data centre. In addition, organisations wishing to have Hybrid Cloud set-ups will be ideally placed on the backbone of the Internet. The Cloud and Disaster Recovery Suites offer solutions that are customer-owned, designed and implemented by NextiraOne using industry best practice. The Suites are designed with optimised security, networking, computing and storage components as well as computer room power and cooling available in Equinix's Slough data centre.

Geraint Davies, Head of Business Development, Data Centres, said: "For organisations that operate customised applications in their own private computer rooms on-site, the Cloud Suites provide great opportunities to complement their own services with niche applications delivered by specialists and also to offer new services for use by their customers. This leads to a need for a hybrid infrastructure that supports core applications privately, but also allows easy experimentation with the Cloud, and the ability to expand this. In addition, businesses need resilient Disaster Recovery computer rooms that mirror key aspects of their private facilities. NextiraOne offers these suites to create a low risk, high availability, secure and scalable solution."

NextiraOne designs, builds, operates and supports these systems using industry-leading Unified Platforms based on Cisco, NetApp and VMware technology. These can be rapidly deployed and scaled using the industry-leading Next Generation FlexPod architecture, cutting installation time, increasing availability, improving performance of Internet-based services and reducing risk.

The introduction of NextiraOne's Cloud and Disaster Recovery Suites allows enterprise and public sector customers to combine the benefits of a highly secure environment, with optimised power and cooling, whilst keeping down the operating costs and ensuring effective back-up is in place. With ongoing remote Managed Services offered by NextiraOne, the pressure of maintaining a consolidated Disaster Recovery data centre is considerably reduced and access to future Cloud Services is much improved.

Availability is set to be announced at Cisco Live! January 28-31 at London's ExCel Centre, and showcased from March at Equinix's UK base, where customers will be able to visit for a Briefing, Tour and Test Drive.

NextiraOne has a long-standing reputation for delivering high quality and cost-effective data centre services. Matching business and IT needs with innovative solutions and services, NextiraOne along with their ecosystem partners, brings state-of-the-art technologies to bear to create advanced, future-proof and low-TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) data centres for businesses. The Cloud & Disaster Recovery Suites will be the latest addition to NextiraOne's roster of IT solutions available.

Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
