Inside Networks: European rollout for Claranet Virtual Data Centre

Extract taken from Inside Networks' August issue

Claranet has announced its Virtual Data Centre (VDC) is now live in Germany and France.

The award winning service was launched in the UK in late 2011 and enables users to build their own data centre in the cloud and provision it with compute, storage and networking resources with a few clicks of a mouse. The Claranet VDC also provides a burst capability for periods of unexpectedly high demand, so users pay only for the assets that they use.

The French and German version are based on the successful UK model, including the groundbreaking software orchestration layer that makes it compatible with every type of hypervisor, and the portal-based ‘drag-and –drop’ interface. Early positive feedback from the French and German markets has focused on VDC’s use of in-country data centres and integration with Claranet’s own European MPLS network.
