Red Hat Implements Cloud for Spanish Hosting Supplier
Spanish hosting supplier Advanced Data Warehouse (ADW) has implemented its new cloud computing solution using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
Red Hat, a provider of open source solutions, was chosen after careful evaluation of other vendors in the market, and has enabled ADW to provide its customers with a powerful, stable and scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
By leveraging its new cloud server, ADW is giving its users a package of flexible, personalised and highly available computing resources. The company can now customize its solutions to address customer needs and enable transparent cost management.
Red Hat notes that it was chosen by ADW due to the cost-effective nature of the solution and its technical capabilities that allow the Spanish hosting provider to deliver a technological environment with load balancing, high availability, synchronization and replication in critical environments.
The ADW cloud service supports several mission-critical workloads, including databases, CRM applications, web servers and software development. This service is backed by the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization infrastructure that manages hundreds of virtual machines and is deployed across dozens of hypervisor host servers.
“Our customers cannot afford an application failure or unavailability. The high availability of our platform is one of the key benefits of our cloud offering and the most important value-add that we can provide to our customers. Thanks to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, we provide our customers with an ‘always-on’ platform with confidence,” said Miriam Ansorena, commercial director at ADW.
“In the first three months after the launch of our laaS offering, we have delivered services to over 300 new customers from various industries,” said Ansorena. “One of the main advantages of cloud computing is that our users do not have to make a high initial investment in infrastructure. Instead, they only have to pay for services used during the time period purchased. Our customers can now deploy new servers in a matter of minutes and they only pay for what they use. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization enables us to offer this service safely, reliably and affordably.”
