Cbeyond, Inc., a provider of integrated communications services, has collaborated with the US division of Insight Enterprises, Inc., a technology provider of hardware, software and service solutions, to offer Cbeyond's TotalCloud Data Center cloud computing services to Insight's customer base.
TotalCloud Data Center is a cloud data center Infrastructure-as-a-Service product line which comprises virtual and physical servers and includes Microsoft's Hyper-V hypervisor management engine, Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS), EMC storage, F5 load balancing and a Fortinet firewall (IDS/IPS). Cbeyond will manage the data center environment, server hardware and OS layer (installation, testing and patches) for virtual and physical servers.
Clients are able to allocate resources across any number of virtual machines (ranging in size from 2GB of RAM to 1TB, and from 2 vCPUs to 64 vCPUs, with several common compute bundles pre-configured); utilize fiber channel SAN Storage across their virtual machines and scale as their business needs grow; and mix and match virtual and physical blade servers in a public, private or hybrid data center environment.
"Insight clearly understands the value of using the latest technology to move its customers' cloud and network goals forward," said Zane Long, vice president of indirect sales at Cbeyond. "This is a major partnership for us given Insight's experience, geographic reach and broad client base."
