BlueCentral's IaaS gains first customers


BlueCentral has opened up its enterprise-grade IaaS platform and signed the first customers.

Hosting provider BlueCentral has assembled an enterprise-grade IaaS platform using components from Microsoft, VMware, EMC, HP, F5 and Juniper.

Compute, storage, security, disaster recovery and managed back-up are offered without requiring a long-term contract, as well as managed services.

One of the first customers is Vedaleon Technologies, a provider of airline check-in services.

"It is imperative that we offer a rapid, efficient service no matter what the load and with BlueCentral, we have reduced average check-in times from 30 seconds to a processing time of eight seconds, even during peak travel periods," said Vedaleon managing director Cornel Nunes.

"The only impediment to further reducing this number is local communication constraints and we continue to work with all our customers to achieve the two to three second check-in time we know the system is capable of."

BlueCentral managing director George Kazangi pointed out that his company provides IaaS using standards-based systems and offers expert advice.

"The investment was based on developing a solution specifically for organisations with mission-critical business and web applications," he said.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
