Adding all-flash vSAN technology to phoenixNAP’s latest version its Data Security Cloud Platform has significantly expanded the capabilities of their Data Security Cloud platform, stated the company. Using SSD flash disks for both cache tier and Capacity tier would enable easier management of storage resources while ensuring advanced performance.
“With that capability inside of Data Security Cloud, our customers can maximize the use of their infrastructure,” said William Bell, Executive Vice President of Products at IaaS hosting provider phoenixNAP. “Coupled with a more flexible storage tiering option and improved resource management controls, all-flash vSAN provides a more powerful cloud platform for sensitive and regulated workloads.”
Data Security Cloud is phoenixNAP’s “secure-hosted” multi-tenant platform that uses “strict” virtualization and segmentation controls on “powerful” hardware to provide “robust” platform for sensitive workloads. Data Security Cloud is built for sensitive workloads to allow organizations operating under strict security and compliance standards to meet their goals. Based on VMware NSX, it provides advanced security options through microsegmentation and workload mobility options. Data Security Cloud users would benefit from vSAN as it “ensures lower latency and greater cost-efficiency.”
DSC Essentials, DSC Advanced
The enhancements in the newest version also include a new delivery model enabling organizations to choose between DSC Essentials and DSC Advanced platform. In addition to this, the solution will include a more flexible backup storage tiering option and improved threat management controls.
“The release of the enhanced Data Security Cloud is a new milestone in our journey towards the secure cloud,” said Ian McClarty, President of phoenixNAP. “The platform just got stronger and more robust, providing even greater protection for our clients’ critical workloads. We are excited to present DSC Essentials and DSC Advanced to the world and provide organizations with a powerful security solution. Data Security Cloud is built to withstand any disaster scenario or security breach while the new capabilities make it easier to deploy and manage.”
Leveraging Veeam backup technology, the improved Data Security Cloud includes cloud backups to the amount of 50 or 100 per cent of total storage volume, depending on the chosen plan. Both DSC Essentials and Advanced provide threat management capabilities such as 24/7 SOC, endpoint protection, threat-risk intelligence, anti-virus and vulnerability scanning, as well as vulnerability remediation and intelligence, behavioral analytics, and security posture report.
“The enhancements to Data Security Cloud are designed to provide organizations with more flexibility and performance,” said Jim Aluotto, senior director, Cloud Provider Business, Americas Region, VMware. “VMware Cloud Providers such as phoenixNAP are empowering organizations of different sizes with a simple and flexible path to the cloud that supports their growth, performance and security goals.”
