Thesaurus launches flexible Datacentre as a Service

Enterprise data expert, Thesaurus, launches Datacentre as a Service (DaaS), to take care of every facet of an organisation’s datacentre needs in a flexible approach that can grow and change with a business, reduce costs and improve business continuity.

From installing resilient servers and cooling technology through to reducing carbon footprints, DaaS from Thesaurus now offers a one-stop-shop for organisations that want a simple, all encompassing solution when faced with issues such as expensive servers and a restricting amount of space/cooling/power.

Without the need for high upfront capital investment, DaaS avoids large datacentre costs and, as a completely bespoke service, means organisations only pay for what is required with predictable costs. DaaS can also help an organisation meet green targets, lower its carbon footprint and achieve the associated cost savings at the same time.

A completely flexible service, DaaS doesn’t tie an organisation into a fixed contract and can be scaled up or down at any time to match an organisation’s needs. If costs need to be further reduced or capacity needs to be increased, the service can be adjusted accordingly. This is thanks to the flexible, future-proof nature of the latest infrastructures IBM Premier Business Partner Thesaurus implements, such as the System Z mainframe.

Experts at Thesaurus also remove the time-sapping practice of proactive system monitoring from an organisation, be it local, remote, environmental, hardware, capacity or network monitoring. The same can be said of the software and infrastructure support and updates that the highly skilled team carry out, reducing the need for in-house 24/7 IT resource.

Mike Vinten, Thesaurus CEO, explains, “DaaS removes the strain a datacentre places on a business. It’s an ideal solution for those organisations that want to cut down on the expense of hardware, power and cooling, as well as reduce the amount of time staff take in monitoring and upgrading systems. All they have to do is pay a subscription cost and that’s it, we take care of the rest.”

DaaS also improves business continuity and security with disaster recovery, backup and testing, all taken care of by Thesaurus. Ongoing security threats are addressed by Thesaurus experts conducting security audits and compliance analyses in both logical and physical environments.

Vinten continues, “Organisations understand SaaS and so the completeness of DaaS will prove to be a much easier decision to incorporate it their IT strategy. All of the concerns that come with a datacentre are taken care of by us as part of DaaS. We ensure that businesses receive a resilient and secure datacentre service which satisfies issues, such as fire protection, and ensures sound business continuity.”

Thesaurus situates its customer systems in the secure and reliable environment of its Milton Keynes data centre. Highly skilled, accredited staff adhere to ITIL standards and provide organisations with an expert point of contact 24/7/365 to meet the most demanding of SLAs.

DaaS offers a simple and cost effective solution to every datacentre issue, such as:

•       infrastructure

•       resiliency

•       monitoring

•       security

•       business continuity

•       flexibility

•       green issues
