A new generation of server products designed for the cloud era, enhances the reliability and manageability of on-site IT while significantly reducing cost.
BATH, United Kingdom, December 1st, 2015 – Zynstra, the pioneer in enterprise-class hybrid IT for the SMB, today unveiled its new range of cloud managed server appliance products. Using award winning virtualization and cloud management technology, Zynstra’s products are designed for organizations who want a secure, reliable IT infrastructure, without prohibitive management costs. Available immediately, Zynstra’s new product line-up delivers advanced, cloud managed, cloud integrated, secure and reliable IT that can translate to TCO savings of up to 60%. Now, organizations with single or multiple sites can enjoy hyperconverged server technology delivered ‘as a service’ and managed from the cloud, making possible new levels of efficiency in buying, running and maintaining critical on-site IT.
Zynstra’s technology has been designed for the IT Service Provider, enabling them to deploy, maintain and manage any number of customer’s on-site servers centrally from the cloud, coupled with an economic model that delivers the recurring revenue that customers and service providers are looking for.
“As an established Fully Managed Cloud provider, we recognized that a full Cloud Hosted solution was not always the best fit for some of our customers,” said Jim Weston, Director of Infrastructure Services at Castle Computer Services, a UK based IT Service Provider. “We felt there was a gap in our portfolio between locally hosted on premise and fully hosted solutions and then along came Zynstra. Zynstra provides an ideal hybrid solution that not only completes our portfolio but provides the ideal solution for many of our valued customers.”
Zynstra’s four new cloud managed server appliances run on HPE’s Proliant Gen9 hardware. They deliver modular and integrated storage, compute, and network capabilities. The new range includes an enhanced file system infrastructure, enabling increased storage efficiency locally and in the cloud. Intrusion detection and an ICSA Labs certified firewall are included for security, alongside a network gateway with caching for accelerated performance and network domain management for easier and secure system control. In addition, customers can run any server application, with integrated cloud management, backup and disaster recovery. Single sign-on integration to Office 365 is included. Zynstra’s offering is delivered as a service and always kept current, avoiding prohibitive end of life costs, and ensuring software is always consistent across one or many sites.
The appliances leverage Zynstra’s patented virtualization and cloud management technology to deliver modular and integrated storage, compute and network capabilities to all sites, regardless of size, remoteness, or local support availability.
“Our new range of cloud managed server solutions are the perfect fit for our IT Service Provider partners. These partners frequently need to manage servers, on one or many sites, that can’t be moved to large centrally hosted data-centers for reasons of security, performance, cost, or control. We make it possible for them to offer a secure and reliable ‘as a service’ solution to their customers, with recurring revenue, cloud integration, and cloud management. All of this is delivered at a much lower cost than they experience today. This is a new type of server, designed for the cloud era, and for IT service providers who want the right technology to develop and protect their business and their customers.” said Nick East, CEO and founder, Zynstra.
