Datacenters.com, a marketplace and technology platform for buyers and sellers of colocation, cloud services, and connectivity, has officially launched its IGNITE Cloud Projects. This cloud RFP and project management platform would help Datacenters.com users streamline the planning, design, and procurement of custom, multi-cloud deployments of strategic solutions from top cloud providers globally.
Datacenters.com IGNITE Cloud Projects would take the guesswork out of configuring complex cloud deployments for IaaS, DRaaS, SaaS, UCaaS, and CCaaS solutions by “intuitively” guiding users through each step of the process from determining service requirements to selecting regions and providers.
The IGNITE Cloud Project Platform features intelligent matching with a proprietary, data-driven algorithm to make “lightning-fast” recommendations as to the best providers for each user-defined cloud project.
A major challenge for businesses undergoing digital transformation would be visibility and collaboration in the vendor selection process. With IGNITE Cloud Projects, users can save and edit their cloud projects, distribute digital cloud RFPs directly to providers, and invite team members to collaborate on projects and proposals.
Datacenters.com users can also view and change the status of any project, compare cloud proposals, and communicate directly with providers in the user portal and project dashboard. Every new cloud project is assigned a Datacenters.com Concierge to help facilitate and advance the process, answer questions, and provide technical support.
“Everything is customizable,” said Mike Price, VP of Software Engineering at Datacenters.com. “Businesses migrating to the cloud for the first time have the ability to customize their requirements for performance, security, cost, and management levels across all cloud services.”
To sum up, key benefits of using IGNITE Cloud Projects would include:
- “Easy-to-use” configuration wizard for IaaS, DRaaS, SaaS, UCaaS and CCaaS requirements.
- Direct access to cloud service providers, MSPs, and cloud migration companies.
- Side-by-side cloud comparisons for proposals and pricing in a centralized, web-based platform.
- Built-in project collaboration features allowing teams to view, edit, and respond to proposals.
- Project tagging allowing IT Consultants and Agents to create projects on behalf of their clients.
“The future of enterprise IT is the merging of cloud, data centers, and connectivity into the hybrid infrastructure of tomorrow,” said Joel St. Germain, CEO of Datacenters.com. “The addition of cloud is a huge step towards realizing a goal of helping users build and deploy multi-vendor, hybrid infrastructure on a single, easy to use platform.”
Datacenters.com detailed information on 303 providers, 2,916 data center facilities, and 206 marketplace products globally. Headquartered in Englewood, Colorado, Datacenters.com is the sister company of Global Consulting Group, Inc. (GCG), a “leading” technology services distributor and IT consulting company.
