NaviSite (News - Alert), Inc., a provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed applications, managed messaging and managed cloud services, recently announced a new replication solution that provides high flexibility and customizability for its clients. The new NaviCloud Director solution, which gives companies the ability to quickly build applications and maintain them, is now providing disaster-recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) technology. As a result, the virtual machines can now be replicated between NaviCloud Director (NCD) infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) environments, as well as from a customer’s dedicated on-premise or virtual IT environments.
NaviCloud Director leverages VMWare vCloud Director 5.1, and is designed to provide businesses a flexible and versatile self-service platform well-suited for cloud-based production applications. NaviSite provides NaviCloud Director customers access to VMware APIs and developer community. In addition, customers will be able to customize their networking architecture to map specifically to technology philosophy. Advanced users, such as those with in-house vCloud Director experience will have the ability to access the native vCloud Director user interface for further user flexibility, the company added.
“In our work helping businesses and IT leaders secure their data and IT environments, we are seeing a pressing need to enable customers to move data securely from one location to another without altering the original environment,” said Chris Patterson, Senior Director, Product Management, NaviSite. “Businesses are grappling with an unprecedented influx of data and new internal IT requirements. With this NaviCloud Director replication enhancement, we are providing customers with solutions that meet their needs for flexibility, security, scalability and business continuity while also reducing the amount of time and resources spent to manage the systems.”
NaviSite provides a full suite of reliable and scalable managed services, including application services, industry-leading enterprise hosting, and managed cloud services for organizations looking to outsource IT infrastructures and helps lower their capital and operational costs.
The company recently announced the launch of a leading-edge Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution that uses NVIDIA (News - Alert) GRID technology to offer industry-leading rich graphics performance. In doing so, NaviSite has ushered the benefits of desktop virtualization for even the most intensive graphics workloads to a broader audience of end-users using engineering, design, and multimedia applications.
