Anittel Clients to Benefit from Enhanced Cloud Utility
A Commitment to Delivering Virtualised Cloud Infrastructure to Businesses Across Australia
For Release Thursday 8th September 2011
Anittel Group Ltd (ASX: ‘AYG’- ‘Anittel’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce that its virtualised cloud infrastructure service has achieved VMware vCloud® Powered status and certification. This will enable Anittel customers to achieve real mobility, flexibility and security around access to their applications.
The certification strengthens Anittel’s capability in providing end-to-end service and support to regional and metropolitan customers across Australia.
Anittel’s VMware vCloud® Powered certification will help enable businesses across Australia to implement cloud based solutions. Anthony Spiteri, Anittel Hosting Team Leader explains, “Australian businesses have recognised the potential cost savings and management benefits of cloud services, however many are still bound to onsite hardware investments. With VMware vCloud we can implement a hybrid based solution that takes advantage of cloud service benefits whilst still utilising traditional onsite resources. It’s a win-win scenario for businesses looking for operational efficiency, flexibility and competitive advantage”.
VMware vCloud service delivers a set of cloud computing services across a common platform, supporting the largest set of existing applications and offering distinctive application mobility uniquely available from VMware.
Anittel virtualised cloud infrastructure customers will be provided with enhanced management, resource agility, and reduced IT costs through increased consolidation. Spiteri explains, “Our virtualised cloud infrastructure customers have the ability to move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud environment to the VMware vCloud Powered service and back again. This server / virtual machine portability is a key differentiator allowing customers to achieve the flexibility and security they need while enabling increased IT agility”.
The full service offering is currently in the final implementation phase and is available for closed testing upon request and will debut in production late 2011.
