Australia's leading vendor-independent systems availability specialist, Interactive, launches 'virtual' and 'dedicated' cloud servers to the market with Enterprise level technical specifications and redundancy.

With a steady trend towards hosting IT applications in the 'cloud', Interactive has introduced two high performance system options that utilise the latest technology equipment in a high-availability N+1 data centre environment. Interactive also boasts a 100% communications availability guarantee by using multiple communications providers, each with fully redundant diverse paths and exchanges. Interactive are so confident in their product, they back their services with a comprehensive penalty agreement.

Both the virtual and dedicated cloud computing offers have been designed with a focus on optimising uptime for customers.

Interactive's virtual cloud server provides an increased speed of deployment and immediate access to scalable resources, resulting in significant cost savings and additional flexibility when compared with other options on the market. However, a dedicated cloud server gives businesses their own physical server with internal mirrored drives, offering the highest level of security possible within a cloud environment.

Interactive customers can be assured their data is secure in the 'cloud', with both systems delivered directly from its own purpose built N+1 data centres in Melbourne and Sydney. With limited availability of data centre space an issue right across Australia, the 'cloud' provides a range of flexible options for companies to gain access to Interactive's high-tech, world-class, locally-based data centres.

Christopher Ride, Managing Director of Interactive, says the new cloud offerings are the best in the industry.

'We provide you the best technology, in arguably the best data-centres in Australia, with the highest levels of redundancy, with the best people supporting you. What could be more compelling than that?'

'Our long history in data centres, systems availability, disaster recovery and online data storage means customers have peace of mind knowing that we look after everything, end-to-end,' Ride explains.

Interactive's cloud servers have no set-up charge, no capex, a single monthly fee, and are high performance. In addition, their cloud systems are monitored by Interactive's 24/7 operations team, meaning that in the unlikely event there is a problem, customers can contact someone immediately and get it resolved.

In addition, Interactive's cloud services are fully certified 100% Carbon Neutral, with both the virtual and dedicated servers having no impact on the environment.
