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.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
The initial debate is over: Any enterprise with a serious commitment to IT is migrating to the cloud. But things are not so simple.

As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise. In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Part...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
"A lot of times people will come to us and have a very diverse set of requirements or very customized need and we'll help them to implement it in a fashion that you can't just buy off of the shelf," explained Nick Rose, CTO of Enzu, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Digital Initiatives create new ways of conducting business, which drive the need for increasingly advanced security and regulatory compliance challenges with exponentially more damaging consequences.

Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations u...
