What is the Cloud?
The cloud is a redundant network of servers and other hardware that combine to provide dependable, scalable systems for hosting applications and services. The cloud makes it possible to scale a company’s server resources in minutes versus the hours or days it takes with traditional dedicated server solutions. All Private Cloud Servers are fully managed via software solutions on redundant hardware, so businesses can focus on core competencies while receiving a superior return IT resource investment.
FiberMedia’s cloud solutions are based, in part, on the industry-leading VMWare vCloud solution set, which allows the power of cloud computing to be leveraged while retaining the flexibility and open standards necessary to support and enhance existing IT infrastructure. Utilizing VMWare vCloud solutions, companies can run, secure and manage applications in a private cloud or move them to our hosted public clouds powered by VMware vCloud.
