Introduces right-sourced approach to integrated managed services across cloud, virtual and physical platforms
Cloud Computing World Forum, London: 13/06/2012: ICT services provider niu Solutions today extends its managed services portfolio with the launch of its cloud integration services. Knitting together multiple cloud products and services from best of breed providers, niu is enabling mid-market organisations to right-source the platforms, processes and technologies that best suit business needs, and delivering them as a single solution with a flexible service wrap.
The new service brings together third party clouds as one unified, independent solution, and tightly integrates this with other products and services, both on and off site, to create a truly tailored approach to application delivery. With the ability to move workloads and apps between any physical, virtual and cloud platform on-demand, niu is providing the agile, scalable and resilient approach to cloud that today’s mid-market organisations demand.
Gary Woodward, CEO of niu Solutions, comments, “In the stampede to adopt cloud, the IT & telecoms industry needs to recognise the real transformation in the business applications space. At niu, we’ve long understood how to deploy applications in hybrid models in order to create desired business value from IT, and this is exactly how we build our cloud and managed services today – from the application down.
“Cloud is only one part of the solution. Working application by application, we match and integrate the right platforms and services with the right vendor software, be it from third party clouds, private hosted or in house services. This enables us to create bespoke, high performance solutions provisioned as our customers need it, as a service and as they grow.”
Mid-market customers are not limited to any one supplier when creating a service with niu. Leveraging core partnerships with leading technology vendors including IBM, Orange, Cisco, Microsoft and VMware as well as both horizontal and niche application providers, niu operates as an MSP-integrator; providing an independent choice of vendors and providers where value can be added to a customer’s individual business issues.
Providing one independent service wrap, niu is eliminating the complexities and variances around ease of contracting, provisioning, service levels, cost and service options which are commonplace when sourcing from multiple cloud suppliers. Its fully managed services include integration, professional consultancy, 24/7 support and compliance & security as standard, all tailored to reduce operational resource that supports innovation, while complementing in-house skills and existing infrastructure investments.
“As a hosted and managed service provider, we’ve built our cloud computing infrastructure and skills over many years,” says Woodward. “Extending our integration services to the cloud is a natural progression for niu, and our customers alike, as we work to create tailor-made end to end services that meet individual business needs.”
niu Solutions is exhibiting on stand 3220 at Cloud Computing World Forum at London’s Earls Court on the 12th and 13th June 2012.
