September 17, 2010 by  

Hosting ServicesENGLEWOOD, CO – Adding to its solutions for virtual, managed and fully dedicated “private” hosted servers, Arrow Enterprise Computing Solutions, a business segment of Arrow Electronics Inc. [NYSE: ARW], expanded its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) portfolio with offerings for “public” cloud solutions for servers and storage. Public cloud solutions are accessed through the Internet and augment or replace a company’s information technology systems.

Part of the Arrow Fusion℠ North American professional services program, the public IaaS offerings include multiple levels of off-site server hosting, ranging from colocation to fully managed hosting to public cloud solutions. These solutions, which are powered by Terremark (NASDAQ:TMRK), enable companies to provision and manage their computing resources through self-service applications that are supported by 12 data-center facilities on multiple continents, providing connectivity from 160 global network carriers and round-the-clock support.

“Arrow ECS is pleased to provide resellers with a cost-effective alternative to on-site servers that they can present to their customers. It also gives resellers’ customers increased flexibility with managing their technology needs, as all or part of their infrastructure can be outsourced and managed through Arrow ECS’ IaaS offerings,” said Lee Fawcett, vice president of the Arrow Fusion business unit. “Terremark has a proven track record of providing industry-leading, enterprise-class public cloud computing solutions. These IaaS solutions were selected based on their compatibility with other Arrow Fusion services, enabling resellers to aggregate various services to best meet their customers’ needs.”

The IaaS solutions are sold in resource pools based on various processing, RAM and primary storage needs. The solution is then customized based on each customer’s number of Internet-protocol (IP) addresses and firewall, load balancing and backup needs, among other network requirements.
