Terremark Launches vCloud Express Service

September 2, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ToolsMIAMI – Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMRK), a leading global provider of managed IT infrastructure services, today announced the addition of the vCloud Express service to its suite of VMware Virtualized offerings. vCloud Express is a new class of service based on VMware’s powerful virtualization platform that allows software developers and other users to easily access computing resources in a pay-as-you-go model. vCloud Express will provide customers with flexible computing on demand, with the power and control to configure resources as needed. It uniquely offers users compatibility with their internal datacenters, as well as Terremark’s Enterprise Cloud offering, enabling users to move applications to the production environment of their choice.

Customers will be able to easily sign up for the service online with a credit card and immediately begin provisioning computing capacity using Terremark’s intuitive Web console. Integrated firewalls, load balancing and network management features allow users to easily customize their cloud environment to their specific needs. Users will also be able to access their cloud computing environments via the VMware vCloud™ API, enabling interoperability across internal and external clouds. A Terremark vCloud Express community website featuring expert blogs, support forums and product documentation will provide customers with an interactive platform to receive up-to-date information and insights from Terremark’s team of cloud computing experts.

“Customers have asked for a cloud solution that they can easily develop and experiment with that delivers compatibility with their internal datacenters as well as with enterprise-class production cloud offerings,” said Dan Chu, VP of emerging business, VMware, “We feel Terremark’s innovation and commitment to vCloud Express answers that request. We are excited to have Terremark provide its vCloud Express and Enterprise Cloud offerings addressing both the developer and the enterprise cloud user, matching the tier of service needed to align with the IT and business needs of each.”

With the addition of vCloud Express, Terremark is expanding its suite of industry-leading infrastructure-as-a-service solutions. These solutions will leverage VMware’s robust and advanced enterprise-class platform and Terremark’s top-tier, massively connected datacenter facilities to deliver high-performance cloud computing services to the developer market.

Terremark’s strategic move into the cloud computing market began with the June 2008 launch of the Enterprise Cloud, a highly reliable and secure platform with the power to dynamically provision computing resources for mission-critical applications. Designed to meet the high security and regulatory standards of large enterprises and Federal government agencies, the Enterprise Cloud leverages a full suite of managed security services and unique “burst” option to offer customers a highly secure and elastic platform to meet their IT infrastructure needs.

“vCloud Express is the latest example of how Terremark is on the leading-edge of technological innovation in the cloud,” said Terremark’s Chairman and CEO Manuel D. Medina. “As we further expand our suite of cloud computing services, our legacy of delivering highly reliable enterprise-level IT infrastructure solutions will remain core to our offerings.”

Terremark’s vCloud Express will initially be launched in a limited-availability beta program, with a full launch scheduled by the end of 2009. Information on Terremark’s vCloud Express is available at http://vcloudexpress.terremark.com.
