Proact partners with NetApp and Cisco to improve cloud infrastructure delivery
As one of few qualified partners in Europe, Proact has partnered up with NetApp and Cisco to offer the latest FlexPod solutions, including the new Managed Private Cloud service. Based on proven FlexPod architecture, Managed Private Cloud solutions provide customers with new consumption options and increased flexibility.
As customers continue to modernise their data centres and look towards hybrid cloud models, Proact can offer design, implementation and optimisation skills to help organisations leverage on powerful FlexPod IT infrastructures. Managed Private Cloud solutions are built on FlexPod and enable organisations to realise a cloud-like, ‘as a Service’ model for their on-premises IT.
Proact can enable a streamlined transition to a Managed Private Cloud that is located on-premises but managed remotely by some of the industry’s best specialists. By adopting a Managed Private Cloud alongside Proact’s 24/7 Service Management, organisations can ensure that critical customer data remains secure while also advancing cloud capabilities.
The combination of Proact and FlexPod continues to be a platform for innovation and investment protection. Proact’s service portfolio now includes ready-to-use solutions for the latest virtualisation software, enterprise applications and databases, incorporating the latest technologies from Cisco and NetApp.
"As one of the first and largest FlexPod Premium Partners in Europe, Cisco and NetApp technologies have been used for many years as part of our enterprise-class managed services. We are therefore thrilled to add the new Managed Private Cloud solution to our portfolio, giving us even stronger capabilities to efficiently and effectively manage on-premises private clouds for our customers across Europe." says Paul Bates, Vice President for Managed Services at Proact.
Proact can now also offer a series of pre-tested and validated vertical-based solutions including FlexPod Data Centre for Epic HER, an application for healthcare customers. “These solutions will help our customers tackle industry-centric challenges, where key applications can be deployed quickly and organisations can overcome the hurdles of diverse, dynamic and distributed data” continues Paul Bates.
Siva Sivakumar, Senior Director, Data Centre Solutions at Cisco Systems, says: "With these new offerings we are helping organisations accelerate deployment of their business-critical applications by providing a secure, robust and flexible private cloud infrastructure that has the speed and simplicity of public cloud."
