Markley Group Launches Markley Cloud Services
Mar 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Markley Group announced the availability of its new Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering, Markley Cloud Services.
In a release, the Company noted that it offers companies elastic, on-demand computing and storage resources.
Using VMware's cloud and virtualization software solutions, MCS delivers a self-service IaaS platform that integrates with resources in dedicated colocation cabinets, cages and suites through private fiber optic connections, via virtual cross connects, helping to enhance a company's hybrid cloud strategy.
Its Non-Stop Network platform consists of a more than ten tier-1 providers, including AboveNet, Cogent, Comcast, Level3, and CenturyLink.
"Our vision for Markley Cloud Services is built upon the same virtues that framed our company formation in 1992 - custom-design based on customer demand that paves the way for innovation and performance," said Jeffrey Markley, CEO of Markley Group. "MCS leverages our broad carrier network to offer customers the very best in connectivity and bandwidth so they worry less about cloud initiatives and more about how IT can impact their overall business goals."
-Administration and Configuration Capabilities - MCS customers can configure VMware-based virtual appliances in test and development that will automatically power down or delete based on a specified time period.
-Role-Based Access Control - Administrators can control multi-tenant MCS virtual data centers by defining user roles and permissions that grant control over VM log-ins, specified vApps, or the entire vDC.
-Catalog Development for Rapid Deployment - MCS enables customers to create catalogs of pre-configured and custom templates for rapid and efficient deployment of virtual data centers. It also enables VM uploads from local environments via a VMware-based operations center for hybrid cloud environments, as well as the ability to save and build VMs based on customized applications and policies.
-vApp Management - MCS customers can leverage and manage vApps using set specifications, including the number of VMs, available networks and architecture, from a configurable single view dashboard.
-Virtual Firewall Enablement - MCS' security measures guarantee customers can deploy VMware-based network and cloud security services as an easy-to-manage virtual appliance to provide firewall, virtual private network, network address translation and dynamic host configuration protocol services.
-Load Balancing Solution - MCS offers a A10 Networks load balancing solution to provide redundancy and added throughput capacity for increased uptime, content switching and SSL acceleration.
MCS is available immediately. The pricing model options include monthly reservations or hourly, pay-as-you-go premiums. Both models include 1000GB of outbound bandwidth, support for multiple public IP Addresses (IPv4 and IPv6), and 24/7 expert technical support.
Markley Group is a telecommunications and data center facility in New England.
