Navisite Expands Strategic Relationship with VMware and Announces Increased Client Visibility and Control with NaviCloud AppCentre 2.0
Navisite, LLC, a premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed application, managed messaging and managed cloud services, today announced the release of NaviCloud AppCentre 2.0. This next generation cloud management portal now includes VMware vCloud Director® 5.1, and enhances the ability of clients to fine tune their cloud environments.
With NaviCloud AppCentre 2.0, Navisite is introducing more self-service options and providing new analytics functionality for better troubleshooting and capacity planning.
“We are continuing to execute on our strategy to give IT organizations more flexibility and control by providing additional self-service, configuration and visibility capabilities in AppCentre 2.0,” said David Grimes, CTO at Navisite. “I’m proud to announce the expansion of our strategic partnership with VMware with the integration of VMware vCloud Director® 5.1. As we continue to enhance NaviCloud, our leading service delivery platform, and AppCentre, a robust cloud management portal, we believe the new services and functionality that VMware vCloud Director 5.1 will enable us to deliver are key for our enterprise clients.”
vCloud Director 5.1 is VMware’s solution for provisioning software-defined data centre services for consumption in minutes. Enterprises and service providers using vCloud Director 5.1 are able to provision a complete infrastructure to their clients as virtual data centres. Complete infrastructure services include new software-defined networking and security functionality as well as the ability to snapshot and revert virtual machines.
AppCentre 2.0 marks the next step in Navisite’s cloud portfolio evolution which was expanded earlier this year to include the NaviCloud Desktop-as-a-Service offering and NaviCloud Intelligent Storage, a suite of cloud storage solutions.
AppCentre 2.0 offers these advantages:
- Gives IT professionals enhanced visibility to Navisite’s hybrid cloud applications services
- Enables additional visibility, configuration, management, monitoring and analytics for troubleshooting and capacity planning across cloud services
- Provides IT the agility and flexibility to respond quickly to the changing needs of the business
