Iedereen wint bij de hybrid cloud met Windows Azure Pack bij hostingbedrijf Arxus

Arxus is een hostingbedrijf dat oplossingen as a Service aanbiedt. De onderneming bouwde een private cloud op basis van Windows Azure Pack. In combinatie met de publieke cloud van Windows Azure zorgt dat voor een hybride oplossing. De klanten van Arxus – bedrijven uit de Cronos Group, maar op termijn ook externe spelers – krijgen via het cloudplatform de mogelijkheid om applicaties en webservices aan hun eindklanten as a Service aan te bieden. Het hybride model zorgt voor onbegrensde flexibiliteit, kostenbesparing en transparante kosten.

Erlend Schenkels, Managing Partner, Arxus: “Wanneer een bedrijf iets ontwikkelt op onze private cloud, dan kan het die oplossing ook makkelijk naar de publieke cloud brengen – en omgekeerd. Dat zorgt voor een ongekende flexibiliteit.”
