Peer 1 Hosting joins VMware Service Provider Program

Peer 1 Hosting, the online IT hosting provider, has announced its participation in the VMware Service Provider Program (VSSP) to offer customers Private Cloud solutions. This relationship will provide customers with access and visibility of their hosted VMware environments augmented by Peer 1 Hosting’s Managed services.

Peer 1’s Hosted Private Cloud will enable companies of all sizes to run their web applications, protect their data, systems, and services using virtualisation technology. Companies will benefit from peace of mind with increased business continuity and disaster recovery options. Customers will be able to manage and monitor their Private Cloud using VMware vSphere.

Peer 1 Hosting’s Private Cloud powered by VMware is hosted on the company’s 10Gb SuperNetworkTM backbone to ensure faster performance, low latency and no single point of failure. In addition, customers will benefit from in-house VMware Certified Professionals (VCPs) and 24x7x365 FirstCall Support™.

As Dominic Monkhouse, Managing Director comments, “Peer 1 Hosting is a leading provider with a global footprint and a proven track record in delivering excellent customer service. It was critical that we joined the leading virtualisation service provider program – and that’s VMware. We look forward to offering the very best virtualisation solution in the market with our Private Cloud powered by VMware’s solutions.”

“Peer 1 Hosting provides an excellent option for customers to take advantage of IT as a service without building an in-house datacentre,” said Geoff Waters, director, VMware Service Provider Program, VMware. ”Businesses that sign up for Private Clouds powered by VMware can count on the powerful combination of VMware’s industry-leading virtualisation platform and Peer 1 Hosting’s outstanding customer service and high-performance network infrastructure.”
