MigSolv, a Norwich, UK-based data center provider, has announced the launch of a suite of cloud hosting solutions that would provide low-cost instant computing suited for start-ups and SMEs.
MigSolv’s cloud hosting solution for start-ups and SMEs is based on Ormurco’s Connected Cloud platform and offers an alternative to more robust datacenter and collocation services. The launch follows MigSolv’s recent multi-million pound contract-win with Ormuco,
“Cloud computing delivered locally is a boon for the new business ventures and SMEs as many don’t want to commit to big upfront IT investments,” said Alex Rabbetts, CEO of MigSolv. “Anyone starting out or just looking to reduce their technology costs can now contact us to switch on an ‘instance’ of a server or storage in a matter of seconds. This ‘instance’ can be used for hosting a website, applications, data processing and backup or any other computing need and costs start from 1p per hour on a pay-as-you-go basis.”
MigSolv’s Gatehouse data center facility on Barnard Road, Norwich occupies 6,000m2 on a 3.64-hectare campus. The Gatehouse data center has won environmental accolades for its design, the EU Green Light and EU Code of Conduct awards.
“Public cloud computing isn’t right for everyone but can be a good option for businesses not wishing to embark on significant capital outlay or those wishing for a pay-as-you-go service that can be switched on, and off, at any time with no contract in place,” added Alex Rabbetts. “One major advantage of our cloud hosting service is that it is, on average, between 10 and 20 percent cheaper than some of the other well-known providers. It is also serviced and supported locally so we can respond quickly to any computing problem or breakdown. Data sovereignty is also becoming an important issue, with MigSolv the data is entirely held and managed locally and is guaranteed never to leave our shores.”
