Netmagic Leverages Cisco, VMware to Develop Cloud Platform

Indian managed IT hosting services provider Netmagic jointly collaborated with VMware and Cisco to develop its next generation cloud computing platform.

The company has announced the beta release of its high performance Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform.

Netmagic’s newest release leverages VMware vSphere and Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) to provide a robust cloud solution for enterprises and service providers.

The IT hosting services provider claims that its IaaS platform meets global standards and will enable organizations to use a cloud environment that promises scalability, security and reliable migration.

We are very excited about our partnership with Netmagic for developing a global, best-in-class Public Cloud (IaaS) platform,” said T. Srinivasan, managing director, VMware India and SAARC. “The VSPP enables our partners like Netmagic to offer solutions that provide cost-effective, custom-made cloud infrastructure through a simplified, easily accessible service model. This partnership will create new opportunities to offer virtualization-enabled solutions, applications and services for their customers and sets the foundation for greater profitability. I am optimistic that this strategic partnership will help accelerate the proliferation of innovative cloud services and solutions in India.”

A journey to an IT cloud infrastructure requires changes both in the technology and the operations of a business. As more companies understand what a cloud infrastructure could mean for the agility of their business, there is a growing realization that it will need to be built differently,”said Rajesh Rege, sr. vice president – Data Center, Cisco India & SAARC. “Cisco and VMware together offer a truly integrated technology platform that addresses the challenges of infrastructure virtualization and reduces the risk for enterprises planning to move to private clouds. We are excited to be associated with Netmagic as a key link in the value chain of high-value service delivery.”
