One Cloud to Rule Them All
It is hard for the enterprise consumer to keep up with the buffet of IT choices companies have before them today. Let’s face it – most companies never intended to get into the IT business in the first place but they found themselves using more and more resources just to make it possible to do business. Now with cloud solutions, there is the opportunity to get out of the IT business and back to what businesses do best. But the industry is still developing and it can be daunting or at least confusing, to figure out which solutions are right for each individual enterprise. Cloud hosting, security, compliance, support, global accessibility, software services are all considerations when choosing a comprehensive technology solution. Cloud in a Vault (CiaV), from Cyber Innovation Labs and NEC Corporation, is the first holistic Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution for major enterprises backed by unique downtime interruption coverage by Travelers Insurance and the industry’s first and only comprehensive retractability clause (more on this later!).
From soup to nuts, CiaV is an advanced, comprehensive, and on-demand infrastructure solution that transforms the modern-day data center into a 100% dedicated, ultra-secure and compliant Cloud as a Service platform. This is a revolutionary way to offer and deliver highly secure cloud-based services from the infrastructure (data center) all of the way up through the stack. Using CiaV, companies can deploy an OpEx model-based infrastructure that is completely self-contained and scalable, offering the first retractable “cloud on wheels” service guarantee, which goes far beyond any other provider’s.
Retractability is a unique feature, unheard of and not delivered in any other platform. The importance this clause is the ability for companies to not only get access to their data, but they can choose to ‘own’ it too – should they wish to get back into the IT ‘game.’ As companies outsource, the big question remains – but how do I get it back, if I want it back? As companies spread their applications and data across multiple servers and solutions, the ability to gain PHYSICAL access to these servers and the ultimate stackable infrastructure continues to get more complicated. However, as today’s businesses needs are complicated, so too are their potential future requirements which remain an unknown. So think about it, what if you need to sell your company – or just a division of a company, how do you ‘retract’ your information from the entire entity? CiaV’s retractibility clause allows you to do that – and not just the data, but the ENTIRE hardware and software solution – AND it’s available to you within 72-hours.
Retractibility isn’t the only thing that makes CiavV different, it’s the whole package: layered on top of Security as a Service; virtual up to the hypervisor; Fully OPEX / rental; retractable, downtime interruption coverage by Travelers.
Security as a Service is a significant differentiator because of the technical challenges that CiaV overcomes to provide tight security. Cyber Innovation Labs has contributed innovative technology that creates separate vaults – separate walls, air tight security, monitors, etc., to ensure secure environments. By offering this as a service, they are providing a very complex and comprehensive solution to the customer. Added to this is the premium that CiaV puts on meeting compliance standards for its clients. Security and compliance makes the foundation of its cloud solution. The fact that they have been able to secure Travelers insurance means that they have a pretty air-tight solution.
In addition to 24×7 global NOC support services, CiaV is able to provide infrastructure, platform, SaaS – to provide complete, turn-key IT solutions. CiaV is arguably the most comprehensive cloud solution suite available in the marketplace, especially when you consider the security and compliance measures they put in place.
