iland Internet Solutions a Houston provider of colocation and hosted VMware solutions, has introduced iland Cloud Services (iCS). The company says customers can use iCS to create a snapshot of their physical environment and encapsulate it into virtual machines, allowing them to easily consolidate workloads from underutilized servers to VMware Server Clusters.
iland supports a enterprise applications running on Linux, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Oracle and SAP. The iCS service offers the ability to lease operating systems, further reducing capital expenditures to free up cash flow.
“As the cost of data center space, support and power continue to rise relative to the total cost of ownership, the ability to migrate underutilized physical server capacity to virtual server clouds translates into significant savings,” said Scott Sparvero, CEO of iland Internet Solutions. “And with less physical servers and storage, our customers save on fewer data center racks, less heating and cooling costs, and enjoy ease of overall management.
“In these competitive times, these reduced costs can translate into more available CAPEX for our customers’ businesses.” Sparvero added. “We have seen our customers reduce their physical data center requirements over ten fold.”
