(Gawkwire.com) – CentriLogic has launched the first international, multi-infrastructure cloud computing service based in Canada. The new enterprise-class cloud provides a secure and scalable on-demand computing infrastructure enabling organizations to efficiently deliver content and information services over the Web. The new cloud service enhances CentriLogic’s suite of hosting and managed services including, Co-location, Private and Managed Hosting, Data Management, Security, Network and Professional Services.
Utilizing resources housed initially in CentriLogic’s Mississauga, Ontario Data Center, the new multi-infrastructure cloud supports organizations that need to collect and process data while addressing cross-border regulatory concerns.
“Today’s enterprise customers require the power, flexibility and availability of an on-demand cloud computing infrastructure,” said Robert Offley, CEO of CentriLogic. “With the adoption of cloud computing and SaaS (software as a service), organizations are becoming concerned about regulatory compliance issues based on the geographical location of their data and applications. CentriLogic has responded by providing the first distributed cloud computing service based in Canada, so that customers have the choice of location while benefitting from a scalable and secure computing infrastructure. By deploying the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform, we are able to construct and manage multiple, geography-specific clouds across our Data Center facilities and networks in Canada and the U.S.”
CentriLogic’s new cloud service allows customers to access and manage any number of virtual servers running Microsoft Windows or Linux through a web-based dashboard, as well as automatically scale up and down their use of cloud servers through a robust web-based API. Utilizing the Enomaly Elastic Computing Platform, the new cloud can be used to host Web Sites, power internal business applications, provide burst capacity to meet peak loads for existing systems, and provide a highly flexible, virtual element to an existing physical infrastructure.
CentriLogic cloud service customer Mortgage Alliance Company of Canada needed the power and flexibility to manage large fluctuations in web traffic that were placing unpredictable demands on their hosting resources. “Due to the nature of the websites and applications we have running, we utilize a number of different server and operating system configurations,” says Karl Sutton, IT Specialist, Mortgage Alliance Company of Canada, “For example, our Mortgage Sweepstakes and E-learning applications like MAC TV, can see large fluctuations in traffic that place unpredictable demands on our hosting resources. CentriLogic’s cloud gives us the ability to scale up dramatically in a short period of time, allowing us to address periods of increased usage without provisioning for these peaks while keeping our data close to home"
CentriLogic’s Canadian cloud service is now available to customers. The company’s U.S.-based cloud, currently offered to select customers, will be publicly launched this summer. For more information on services and pricing call 1-866-366-3678 or visit www.centrilogic.com/cloud.
