Equinix, Huawei-backed Hypernode launches services to the channel

iCITA’s infrastructure network hits the Australian market with Infrastructure Solution Framework

iCITA’s hybrid enterprise datacentre infrastructure network, Hypernode, has launched its end-to-end Cloud solutions to the channel.

In addition to providing a platform for public, private, or hybrid Cloud environments, Hypernode now offers a range of consultancy-backed services, promising to ensure partners can avoid common pitfalls of complex migration scenarios.

iCITA claims that the Huawei-powered and Equinix-hosted Hypernode is able to position solutions providers with the infrastructure, education, and tools to accelerate adoption of Cloud as a key part of business.

“As an experienced solution provider to the channel, we learned very quickly that the biggest challenge moving businesses forward to take full advantage of what public, private and hybrid cloud had to offer via our infrastructure, was developing the business processes, migration tools and consistent pricing models to allow scalability,” iCITA chief executive officer (CEO), Damien Stephens, said.

“We’ve created a proprietary Infrastructure Solution Framework under Hypernode to empower the channel with these same tools and experience we’ve developed. All our partners are equipped with these tools and that’s one of the great competitive advantages of coming on board with Hypernode.”

Hypernode’s Infrastructure Solution Framework is comprised of: a Reference Architecture Kit which suggests best practices and infrastructure designs to enable partners in adapting to fit individual end user environments; a Solution Designer to allow complex, multi-site, hybrid, or DR-enabled architectures to be priced by providers; a Migration Kit with end-to-end process, including documentation, build sheets, and tools.

The Hypernode network has been built for interoperability with a number of vendors. It can be utilised both within the selection of datacentres which comprise its network, including that of Infraserve, or within on-premises environments.

"In designing the Hypernode network we were faced with a number of unique challenges,” iCITA chief technology officer, Josh Tipping, said. “We wanted to leverage our investments in HP, Cisco and Huawei infrastructure and create on top of this a secure, scalable network design that would happily extend with our growing global presence.

Additionally, the network had to reach out into other datacentre locations, vendor types or into the end-user site to support a variety of hybrid Cloud configurations while giving our providers the ultimate control over that design.”

You probably either love Twitter for its quirkiness and brevity or see it as a pointless waste of time. After nearly a decade on the social scene, Twitter still needs to improve its user experience and fill in notable gaps in the service. These seven problems are long overdue for a fix.
