Global IaaS hosting provider INAP has announced the latest release of its Dedicated Private Cloud (DPC) solution. The new, fully isolated VMware computing environments are expertly designed and flexibly configured for any workload or application. It would feature advanced automation for seamless configuration and deployment. For the first time, it includes INAP‘s proprietary ‘Intelligent Monitoring’ managed service.
INAP Dedicated Private Cloud features include complimentary assessments, white glove onboarding and managed VMware NSX Edge firewalls – “for high-availability network security and premium performance.” Additionally, INAP Dedicated Private Cloud users can increase their security posture with INAP Shield Managed Security services. This security solution is powered by Alert Logic managed detection and response (MDR).
“As companies increasingly leave on-premises data centers behind and accelerate their cloud journeys, Dedicated Private Clouds will be an essential component of the hybrid infrastructure mix,” said Jennifer Curry, Senior Vice President of Product and Technology at INAP. “Dedicated Private Clouds are an ideal alternative to hyperscale public cloud platforms, especially for enterprises seeking to satisfy stringent industry compliance requirements, consolidate data centers, host legacy applications, or stand-up disaster recovery environments.”
INAP Intelligent Monitoring
Originally released in 2019 for INAP’s Bare Metal platform, their Intelligent Monitoring solution is a “premium” managed service combining expert technical support with high visibility and control. Powered by VMware vRealize Operations Manager, INAP Intelligent Monitoring for Dedicated Private Cloud provides detailed dashboards that track the overall health of the environment. It includes utilization metrics for hosts, virtual machines (VMs), and datastores. When monitoring thresholds trigger, certified INAP cloud technicians would proactively resolve issues. Users can track progress and follow workflows every step of the way via INAP’s INblue infrastructure management platform.
