Seizing the Market Opportunity: Virtela Cloud Accelerator
In tandem with the appointment of Jagadeesh, Virtela continues to take advantage of the growing market opportunity to provide cloud-based IT infrastructure services beyond applications, compute and storage.
With the addition of Cloud Accelerator, Virtela offers the industry’s broadest set of application acceleration services optimized for any customer environment and deployable from public or private clouds, data centers, remote offices, as well as hybrid cloud and premises-based solutions.
Because Cloud Accelerator operates independent of the underlying hypervisor platform, enterprises gain the ability to accelerate applications hosted at nearly any public cloud provider. Deployed as virtual instances at both the public cloud computing facility and Virtela ESC globally, Cloud Accelerator provides performance improvements of 5x-25x and is backed by the same industry-first application response time guarantee the company introduced with the launch of Virtela ESC: If customers do not experience faster response times, they do not pay – and Virtela will pay them 250% of their service charge.
Unlike other cloud-based IT service approaches, Virtela ESC offers a breakthrough open architecture that is both vendor-agnostic and multi-service (network, security and mobility), as well as available around the world via 50 Virtela Local Cloud Centers (LCC), eliminating customers’ needs to acquire and manage multiple branch office and data center infrastructure devices.
"Over time, the net effect of cloud adoption will be a transformation of traditional software and hardware market segments into IT services," according to Forrester Research. "Provider-hosted offerings will gradually replace data volume and compute power in corporate data centers and on personal devices." (1)
Customer Success: Virtela Cloud Application Acceleration Service
QAD, a leading developer of enterprise applications for global manufacturing companies, is experiencing the core business benefits of Virtela’s cloud-based application acceleration as part of the broad cloud computing initiative it started several years ago.
"Looking ahead, we’re eager to achieve similar benefits from our public cloud-based assets – even to support delivery of our own ERP application to customers. Aside from their cloud service innovation, Virtela’s customer support and personal engagement are far superior to anything we’ve experienced in the past."
