VISI, Minnesota's largest cloud computing, data center services and managed hosting provider, is proud to announce the launch of its new Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) product based on VMware's industry-leading virtualization and management suite, VMware Infrastructure 3.
"Customers are increasingly looking to the web as the preferred channel to start and develop their business. As a result, there is a growing demand to seamlessly scale their web presence in a cost-effective manner while maintaining a highly available environment," said Johnny Hatch, Product Manager at VISI. "VDS delivers on this by allowing customers to deploy a server environment with only those computing resources they need today and the capability to allocate additional resources as they grow."
VISI's VDS product was designed to provide a higher level of security, reliability and performance than you can get with traditional hosting products. VISI has leveraged VMware's High Availability (HA) feature to maximize customer's uptime by rebooting a virtual server on another physical host in the event of hardware failure.
VMware's Infrastructure 3 allows VISI to offer customers greater control and flexibility by providing them their own operating system (OS) instance. Customers are able to select the amount of CPU, memory and storage they need. Data is stored on a SAN-based storage system for enterprise-class reliability.
"We value our VMware Service Provider Partners (VSPP) who work with customers of all sizes to deliver numerous options for accessing cloud services," said Wendy Perilli, director, product marketing, VMware. "The cloud provides a unique opportunity for customers to leverage the best of what VMware has to offer in the form of security, reliability, and scalability coupled with the skill and experience of a hosting provider like VISI."
As a member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), VISI is well positioned to deliver knowledge and expertise to customers from initial pre-sales and consulting engagements to post sales support and implementation services. VISI has attained the following credentials as part of its VMware practice: VMware Sales Professional (VSP), VMware Technical Sales Professional (VTSP), and VMware Certified Professional (VCP).
