Hybrid Cloud Grows in Popularity as Commensus Launch 100th Customer on vCloud Director

Press Release   •   Oct 22, 2012 09:50 BST

Cloud Computing giant Commensus, today announced that they have migrated their 100th customer across onto their new Hybrid Cloud Portal, launched in May this year. The new system, utilising VMware's vCloud Director enables clients to logon, customise and update their services giving unprecedented agility and increased performance for Systems Administrators and IT Managers. This solution offers a true Hybrid Cloud service, enabling the IT Manager to take control of their IT assets to increase agility and performance.

“Our new self-service portal enables companies to securely logon from anywhere with an Internet connection, to their dedicated virtual servers. They can then customise, power off and fully control their infrastructure on the go,” commented Chief Technical Officer, Alex Parker, “…all of this can be done without the need for any change requests through our Service Desk, giving our customers complete control over their infrastructure”.

The Self-Service portal forms part of a new suite of products which Commensus have launched in partnership with VMware, the world’s leader in Cloud Computing and virtualisation. The company has recently been awarded the vCloud® Powered badge from VMware in recognition of their on-going commitment to help organisations bridge the gap between their on-premise servers and the Cloud bringing significant cost savings and benefits to the business.

“The VMware vCloud® Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape,“ said Gavin Jackson EMEA Director at VMware. “We look forward to supporting Commensus further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”

Self-service is fundamental to ensuring customers are able to keep in control of their systems, regardless of geographic location. Commensus operate a management infrastructure for over 100 customers across Europe and have deployed enhanced security onto the new console to fully integrate with the vConnector suite.
