Flexential, a provider of data center colocation, cloud services, and connectivity, has expanded its FlexAnywhere portfolio of hybrid IT solutions. With enhanced capabilities for quickly transferring applications, workloads, and data when business requirements are evolving, Flexential’s Hosted Private Cloud (HPC) – Advanced Access solutions offer complete management of enterprise private cloud settings.
These solutions help CIOs by enhancing application performance, fostering business agility and the ability to scale IT infrastructure, and supplying superior interconnection capabilities. Additionally, Flexential has launched support for sophisticated measurement and reporting tools backed by machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).
With Flexential’s HPC Advanced Access solution, customers can have complete administrative control over the vendor-owned VMware vCenter server in a high-performance hosted private cloud environment. The offering, which was initially introduced in 2021, has experienced quick growth, according to Flexential, with the number of hosted private cloud customer deployments more than doubling across the FlexAnywhere platform’s 40 data centers across the U.S. in the previous year.
“Flexibility has never been more essential to the modern-day enterprise,” said Mike Fuhrman, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Cloud and Managed Services at Flexential. “With the latest enhancements to our HPC Advanced Access solution, our team is providing customers with the tools and insights they need to be more agile in their workload placements, application operations and overall performance. As business needs shift, we continue to meet customers with the solutions that will drive efficiency no matter their operational location.”
With performance that was previously impossible to achieve, Flexential’s HPC Advanced Access solution would continue to offer the highest levels of customer control and resource management. Performance improvement, self-driving application activities, and more flexible workload migration and placement are now supported by the solution.
To sum up, key enhancements to Flexential’s Hosted Private Cloud offering would include:
- Application Mobility – Allowing organizations to migrate workloads reliably without any delay or performance loss
- ML and AI-driven Performance Management – Offering constant performance improvement, integrated compliance across customer operations, capacity and cost management, as well as intelligence rectification
- Advanced Metrics and Reporting Tools – Giving businesses the ability to optimize, plan, and grow their VMware Cloud through the provision of self-service capabilities across applications and infrastructure
“Hybrid IT solutions continue to grow in popularity as enterprises increasingly turn to professionally managed data centers to deploy key elements of their infrastructure,” said Geoff Thompson, Vice President Cloud Provider Sales at VMware. “By providing direct access to vCenter coupled with advanced analytics, Flexential’s customers can now benefit from the best of both worlds. These advanced capabilities enable new levels of AI-powered visibility in a solution that already delivers maximum configuration flexibility to enterprises for managing their own applications, while providing peace of mind as their data is hosted and replicated securely in Flexential’s hosted private cloud.”
