ISA and Microsoft Partnership will deliver end-to-end service offerings through the cloud and at a lower total cost of ownership
ISA’s expertise in High Performance Computing, our customer demand for virtualized cloud services and our partnership with Microsoft have come together to define a number of new commercial offerings; including Virtual Managed Hosting, Software as a Service Applications, and Cloud Computing.
These new offerings are built using the Microsoft platform approach and the service will combine ISA’s HPC data centre infrastructure across two data centers in Perth and Bunbury; which include a total of over 600 cores. The leveraged Microsoft platform includes the Dynamic Data Centre Tool Kit, Hyper-V, Windows Server 2008 and System Center.
We are aiming to take advantage of Microsoft’s complete platform approach and Cloud Computing and Virtualization vision, to offer customers a commercially viable and cloud based solution for hosting, software delivery and their entire IT infrastructure, if they require it.
We see the application of the Microsoft Platform in this instance as limitless and the opportunities for virtual hosting, application delivery and cloud computing are only bound by the requirements of individual customers. The Microsoft platform approach allows ISA to provide end to end service offerings through the cloud and a lower total cost of ownership.
What are the current needs in the market?
In the market place today, we believe that there is a genuine requirement for hosted serviced compute space based on the Virtualized model; especially as real estate becomes more and more of a premium to organizations throughout the globe. We also believe that there is an opportunity for applications to be delivered through the Software as a Service model; to enable customers to leverage technologies and literally turn them on and off as they please (although we prefer they turn them on!).
How will the needs be met through the Microsoft platform?
This will be delivered on Microsoft’s platform; a platform that ISA has chosen because:
ü It offers, through the Dynamic Data Centre Toolkit and System Center, a secure and flexible infrastructure for the delivery of new services;
ü It offers a complete set of components including Hyper V, System Center, Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server, to lower the overall cost of delivery and overall support costs; and
ü It offers ISA a familiar environment to work and develop new offerings.
