Deploying a Virtual Datacentre on Claranet
Cogenta is among the first customers for Claranet’s Virtual Data Centre (VDC) service, which launched last month. The new service has enabled Cogenta to build its own virtual data centre through a self-service portal where it can add compute, storage and networking resources within seconds via a simple drag-and-drop.
The 24 month contract with Claranet is billed on a monthly basis, but provides a “burst” option for periods of high demand, ensuring that Cogenta only pays for the resources that it is currently using. Claranet fully manages the delivery and availability of all resources on the platform, including integration with their own MPLS network.
