Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
Vazata, a leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, announced today that 01.com, Inc., the #1 largest specialized provider of VMware Zimbra solutions, has chosen Vazata´s vStructure IaaS platform for virtualization capability.
01.com focuses on the delivery and support of high quality email and other electronic collaboration services to communities of users around the world. The company previously operated multiple self-managed data centers to support its software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering. In review of hardware refresh expenses and opportunities to leverage virtualization, the company spent two years analyzing and testing various solution providers and developed requirements for a detailed RFP. In serving more than two thousand customers, some of which are in industry sectors with strict compliance requirements, solution stability and security were cited as paramount to the vendor selection process.
“A dependable partner! Vazata prevents distractions and enables us to focus on our core competencies,” said Gray Rothkopf, President of 01.com. “They not only deliver an infrastructure designed to meet the unique needs of our fast-growing, 24×7 SaaS offering, but also demonstrate proven capabilities in support of our most demanding applications. In addition to security concerns, some of the solutions we extend to our customer base are resource-intensive and composed of dozens of servers accessing hundreds of TB data for customers in more than a hundred countries. The solution they architected for us is embedded with industry-leading service availability and performance SLAs that we, in turn, incorporate into SLAs with our customers. Though we are a small business, Vazata empowers us to compete effectively against our largest, primary competitors´ offerings, such as Google Apps and Microsoft 365. They offer the ultimate partnership with security, resilience, responsiveness, technical acumen, personalized care, stability, performance and SLA guarantees.”
Lance Black, CEO of Vazata, added, “Our organization has invested heavily in developing our vStructure IaaS platform with compliance and stability in mind. As 01.com continues their strategic development of an email-as-a-service (EaaS) solution for the Federal Government´s planned migration to the cloud over the next few years, we intend to offer support in their efforts to market a secure, compliant and compelling solution for e-collaboration.”
