BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, February 1, 2012 - FiberCorp announced today that it will offer virtual private services (VPS) to its customers as part of a cloud services family of services based on Cisco networking technology. The VPS initiative is scheduled to launch in 2012. FiberCorp offers integral telecommunications solutions to large, medium-sized and small companies as well as stores, professional organizations and governmental entities.
Unlike a traditional server, this new service gives the client access to a virtual infrastructure where processing, memory and disk space are combined according to need. Companies will be able to run their applications, perform activities, and host their data in a virtual infrastructure with a high degree of security without the expense of acquiring and maintaining equipment.
- This first cloud service offered by FiberCorp is mounted on an operating platform called FlexPod, which combines networking, computing and storing in a shared infrastructure. This platform is formed by Cisco network products (Nexus® 7000, 5000 and 2000 Series solutions and Cisco UCS™ servers), VMware virtualization solutions and NetApp storage.
- No equipment is installed; it is hired as a service, called IaaS (infrastructure as a service).
- Desca was the Cisco Gold Certified Partner in charge of the implementation.
Ignacio Ardohain, commercial manager, FiberCorp
