Strong demand for MigSolv’s new Hybrid Data Center

April 16, 2014 by · Comments Off on Strong demand for MigSolv’s new Hybrid Data Center 

Norwich, UK – MigSolv, the specialist data center consultancy and data centre operator, today revealed that there has been strong demand for their new ‘Hybrid Data Centre’ or ‘HDC’ which offers on demand, scalable, data centre space. The new offering was developed for customers that can no longer fit into the traditional colocation model where a single rack offers a set amount of power or the wholesale model where everything is built to a specification but takes 6-9 months to deliver. The number of enquiries has risen steeply as customers have become aware of the HDC. The HDC allows organisations to decide on the model, space a nd power required then have this delivered in days or just weeks; providing the flexibility of wholesale data centres with the service levels of colocation.

Alex Rabbetts, CEO MigSolv said: “In this past recession prudent businesses explored ways to retain a streamlined and cost efficient approach. As a result, outsourcing to managed data centre services has been one of the few areas that have been bringing business benefit through colocation, connectivity and continuity. However, wholesale customers have lost out due to long lead times and a requirement to commit large sums of capital up front.”

Survey Shows Cloud Computing Elevating the Role of IT: Focus on Business Strategy and Innovation

March 8, 2011 by · Comments Off on Survey Shows Cloud Computing Elevating the Role of IT: Focus on Business Strategy and Innovation 

Hosting ToolboxISLANDIA, N.Y. – CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) today released a study indicating that cloud computing is enabling a more central role for IT in shaping business strategy and driving innovation.  The vast majority of survey respondents (96 percent) believes the primary role of IT has changed over the past five years, and 71 percent expect that trend to continue over the next two years.  The study, which was conducted by IDG Research Services and sponsored by CA Technologies, polled 200 IT managers in the U.S. and Europe.

More than half (54 percent) of the respondents acknowledge the current value of IT is largely defined by its role as owner and operator of IT infrastructure; however, respondents believe within two years, the primary value of IT will come from managing the IT supply chain. Fifty percent of those surveyed indicate that an increase in cloud-based services, particularly those that were formerly managed in-house, has contributed to this evolution. Read more
