Hosting Ireland, one of Ireland’s leading domain name and web hosting companies, has chosen the CA AppLogic® turnkey cloud computing platform as the basis for delivering cloud services to new and existing customers.
The managed service provider (MSP) plans to launch a range of cloud services, including SaaS applications and a Virtual Data Centre solution in the coming year. The first, to be launched in June 2012, is it’s Cloud Server, a solution that will offer high availability, scalability and rapid deployment. In support of the offering, Hosting Ireland will launch a new Web site that will enable existing and potential customers to access cloud services quickly and easily.
“We chose the CA AppLogic platform because it can streamline customers’ movement to the cloud, accelerating their time to market and lowering their cost for deploying new applications,” said Jonathan Bate, managing director, Hosting Ireland. “The secure, highly available and cost effective solution will enable customers to compose and deploy complex applications on demand, in a matter of hours instead of days or months. Our new online configuration tool means customers can configure a cloud server quickly and easily by selecting central processing units, random access memory and disk space simultaneously.”
“Hosting Ireland has developed a reputation for delivering robust, cost effective hosting solutions for the Irish business community along with industry-leading customer technical support,” said Justine Harris, director, Cloud Solutions, CA Technologies. “Our innovative CA AppLogic platform will help ensure the delivery of hosted cloud solutions in less time than it typically takes to build from scratch.
