Responding to increasing demand for highly scalable and flexible managed IT infrastructure As-a-Service (IaaS) solutions, QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), an international provider of data center, managed hosting and cloud services, has announced the launch of its QTS Managed Cloud – a highly-scalable and compliant enterprise-grade cloud solution.
QTS Managed Cloud customers would be able to tailor the service to fit their specific IT infrastructure and support requirements. QTS cloud engineers and support teams work closely with the customer to design, deploy and manage all or some of a customer’s hybrid cloud environment, allowing the IT staff to focus on its core business functions.
“There is no question that cloud computing has long-term cost and efficiency benefits for businesses, but large and midsize enterprise IT managers are finding that managing and maintaining hybrid clouds can be very complex and costly if in-house expertise and resources are not already in place,” said Jon Greaves, Chief Innovation Officer, QTS. “The QTS approach integrates best-in-breed technology with process automation, operational best practices and a company-wide culture committed to serving as a valued extension of the customer’s IT team.”
QTS is evolving a comprehensive suite of managed cloud hosting services to meet the demands of customers. With QTS’ Managed Cloud, customers can choose from a fully managed offering that includes managed network, operating system and backup and/or pick from an array of optional managed services including monitoring, network intrusion detection, Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) and Anti-DDoS, among others.
As a provider of secured, compliant data center solutions, hybrid cloud and fully managed services, QTS owns, operates or manages 24 data centers and supports more than 1,000 customers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
