Phoenix has announced CloudSure UK, an off-the-shelf next-generation enterprise class infrastructure that delivers IT resources as a service. As an HP CloudAgile partner, Phoenix has based the infrastructure on HP Converged Cloud technology, which combines the economies of scale of a public cloud with the flexibility, security and resiliency of a private cloud.
Developed to reflect the evolution of cloud computing into mainstream adoption, CloudSure UK includes the elements of a cloud offering which are most often requested, creating an off-the-shelf, ready-to-go solution for customers.
“CloudSure UK caters for the needs of the majority of mid and upper-midmarket organisations”, states Tim Bodill, Sales Director for Managed Services and Cloud at Phoenix. “It provides the ultimate in flexible, scalable hosting with a secure, virtualised environment that delivers IT resources as-a-service including servers, storage, memory, software licensing and bandwidth.”
There are five core packages, based on a user count. The first is for up to a hundred users and the larger package caters for a thousand plus users. Within the packages, customers have the flexibility to choose from operating systems, directory services, file and print services, database and mail services to suit their particular needs.
“As an HP CloudAgile and Platinum partner, Phoenix is committed to providing the best IT solutions for more than 3,600 customers,” says Michael Clifford, director, cloud computing, HP United Kingdom & Ireland. “This new solution strengthens Phoenix’s portfolio to meet the needs of the UK mid-market.”
