C Spire, a U.S. telecommunications-based technology company headquartered in Ridgeland, Mississippi, has selected OnApp software as the customer portal for its enterprise cloud services based on VMware vCloud Director. This will enable C Spire to continue delivering the latest VMware features to its enterprise customers.
C Spire has provided VMware-based cloud services since November 2014, and worked closely with VMware’s professional services team to implement OnApp software as its preferred customer portal solution.
C Spire offers a range of cloud hosting services for enterprise applications at its new $23 million Tier III+ commercial data center in Starkville, Mississippi – a 23,800 square foot data center facility.
“Through our extensive range of enterprise cloud hosting services, based on VMware, we help business and government clients take full advantage of the benefits of virtualization for their enterprise applications at our state-of-the-art data center,” said Tad Hamilton, vice president of IT Cloud Services, C Spire. “The OnApp portal makes it possible for our customers to choose, configure and deploy cloud hosting services.”
At the end of 2014, VMware announced that all new vCloud Director functionality would be accessible via third party portals. The OnApp portal for vCloud Director would help service providers ensure that they can continue offering the very latest VMware functionality to their clients, while transforming the user experience.
“C Spire is known as one of the most innovative communications providers in the U.S. and we’re proud to partner with them,” said Ditlev Bredahl, CEO of OnApp. “The OnApp portal is designed to help service providers like C Spire provide the most intuitive, automated and, above all, the most reliable way to provision the cloud hosting services that enterprises need. With the extensive VMware vCloud Air Network product support available in OnApp, we’re looking forward to helping C Spire customers transform the way they provision and manage their services.”
