Telecommunications vendor, Macquarie Telecom (ASX: MAQ), is offering virtual datacentres as part of its new LAUNCH range of services.
LAUNCH virtual datacentre services broadens capacity from physical datacentre assets, allowing customers to rapidly scale up and re-provision resources in near real time without incurring additional costs or risking downtime.
The suite of fully-managed services is proactively monitored but also offers customers access to adjust not only their technical deployments but the flexible commercial terms which govern their cost and use.
According to Macquarie Telecom, the services have been deployed in its flagship Intellicentre 2 datacentre, making it the first multi-site hosting provider to do so in Australia.
"It's a logical extension of the Macquarie Telecom portfolio that allows customers to launch services from our management tools suite and use the deep visibility, expert advice, and full control that LAUNCH services provide," Macquarie Telecom hosting managing director, Aidan Tudehope, said.
The LAUNCH range will also provide rapid self-healing functionality throughout Intellicentre 2, including automated failover and hardware restoration capabilities.
The release of LAUNCH services will also see Macquarie Telecom extend service levels and operating hours for the Hosting Management Centre. "Our mission has always been to give our customers total confidence that their IT systems will keep up as they pursue their business goals, whether it be through comprehensive management tools or wholly-onshore data hosting and customer service," Tudehope added.
