By Asia Cloud Forum editors 12-Jun-2012
Pacnet has introduced its Virtual Private Server (VPS) infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution, in Thailand.
"As today's businesses grow in this era of big data, they have to manage a massive amount of data and yet find cost-effective and reliable platforms to host their applications in the cloud," said Chris Wilson, senior vice president of Product Strategy and Management at Pacnet. "Pacnet VPS leverages the latest server virtualization technology to enable businesses to get access to reliable and rapidly scalable server hosting environments without requiring a huge upfront capital investment."
"We have seen a growing number of organizations in Thailand, especially in key industries such as manufacturing, recognizing the need for an IaaS solution such as Pacnet VPS, so as to enable them to quickly add the capability to host applications and data, that will deliver added value to their businesses," said Paisan Kaweyanun, country manager of Pacnet Thailand.
Hosted in Bangkok, Pacnet VPS is built on major virtualization software, servers, storage equipment and platforms and offerss customers four configurations -- Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large -- to match their compute and storage requirements. Customers also have a choice of either Microsoft Windows Server Standard or Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the operating system of the virtual server.
Optional features include additional virtual CPU, storage or software, which may also be included as part of the service package. Customers pay a monthly fee over flexible 12-, 24- or 36-month terms. The service is also available in Australia with plans for availability "in other key locations at a later date," said company officials.
