CodeBlue's new Cloud Blue service has been developed in response to strong demand from customers for a fast and simple cloud transition. Many of our customers do not want to move slowly over time. They want the cost benefits of virtual servers in the cloud. They want the unlimited scalability, the security and the disaster recovery. And they want an IT infrastructure which is absolutely future proof, using only what they need when they need it. And they want it now.
Cloud Blue delivers precisely that: an immediate cloud transition, including a highly customised supporting package of services - ranging from full user support to high-end strategic planning advice and management, all with a single Cloud Blue contract. If required, CodeBlue will purchase existing in-house IT infrastructure as part of a fully outsourced and managed Cloud Blue solution.
Cloud Blue also accommodates a blended cloud approach where customers want to easily and quickly move just part of their infrastructure or some of their applications to the cloud, depending on what best suits their business.
Cloud Blue builds on the experience CodeBlue has gained over the last few years helping customers migrate to the cloud. It includes a cloud-based server solution at a server price point similar to an in-house solution but with major additional benefits such as lower service and support costs, automated backup and disaster recovery, and the ability to dial server capacity up or down according to demand.
Cloud Blue seamlessly blends a private cloud infrastructure with public cloud access and full integration of any in-house IT infrastructure.
Cloud Blue makes highly sophisticated technology truly affordable. For example, CodeBlue's cloud servers are fully virtualised using VMware at an enterprise level. This means 99.9 percent availability. If a server goes down, another server automatically takes over without the user noticing any change.
Within the Cloud Blue private cloud, automated online back up and disaster recovery solutions can be delivered at an affordable price with the data held in multiple geographic locations.
And because Cloud Blue is a private and highly-secure cloud environment, CodeBlue has been able to develop a single sign-on capability to key applications. This is a very important feature as it means that users no longer have to log in with different names.
Cloud Blue is designed for the New Zealand business environment. Many of the cloud offerings available offshore are not best suited to New Zealand businesses. We've done the hard work of evaluating the various options, picking the winners and adding the missing pieces, in order to offer our customers a 'best for New Zealand' cloud solution. NOW.
