OFFSITE, a cloud computing and data center hosting company headquartered at its own 50,000 square foot facilities in Southeastern WI, with redundant data center operations in Chicago, Illinois, has announced the implementation of Pure Storage (NYSE: PTSG) FlashArray into its private cloud compute and hosted services offering.
The significant infrastructure upgrade is one of many hardware and software enhancements OFFSITE has made to their private cloud hosting environment and is expected to boost the performance of customers’ virtual workloads hosted in the OFFSITE data center.
“The decision to invest in Pure Storage for our private cloud environment was an easy one,” said Brendan Sullivan, OFFSITE Chief Executive Officer (CEO). “Our mid market customers are demanding the power and performance of enterprise IT solutions and Pure Storage delivers this in our Cisco UCS, FlashStack hosted environment.”
“IaaS will continue to be a compelling alternative for companies and organizations seeking the best performance in a manner that also lowers the CAPEX burden most companies have historically faced,” added Mr. Sullivan. “We expect that the private cloud infrastructure upgrade with Pure Storage will allow us to continue to capture share in the private cloud space and assist us in achieving our growth objectives from these data center solutions.”
Since 2011, OFFSITE has been enhancing their data center services offering to include enhanced carrier density, network operations center (NOC) services and private cloud computing solutions.
When asked about the performance improvement of this infrastructure upgrade, OFFSITE Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Anthony Portee commented, “Bottom line is it’s faster. We have implemented customer environments into our private cloud using Pure Storage as well as leveraging it for our own internal workloads. It performs in a manner that feels like there are infinite IOPs for an application. Ultimately private cloud computing is about throughput. Private cloud compute can feature tasks that are complicated or inhibited all together. If the storage is under performing storage, this can be a death nail to workloads and Pure Storage helps eliminate these challenges for our customers.”
OFFSITE offers private cloud services, IaaS, custom, dedicated and shared colocation services, disaster recovery services, network operations center (NOC) services, and hosted and managed solutions.
