MUMBAI, India (BUSINESS WIRE)
Cloud Computing Platform Leverages VMware vSphere and Cisco UCS
Netmagic Solutions, India’s leading managed IT hosting services
provider, today announced release of its next generation cloud computing
platform developed along with VMware and Cisco Systems. This cloud
computing platform leverages VMware vSphere® and Cisco’s Unified
Computing System (UCS) to provide a robust cloud solution for
enterprises and service providers.
Netmagic’s engineering team jointly collaborated with VMware and Cisco
to develop a high performance Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
platform that meets global standards and will allow organizations to
leverage benefits of using a cloud environment that offers scalability,
security and reliable migration.
Netmagic is one of the first VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP)
partners in India to develop the orchestration layer on top of the
VMware virtualization platform. Enterprises can now benefit by
leveraging the managed services being provided by Netmagic on top of
Cisco’s cloud optimized system. At the same time service providers can
take their offerings to market faster by offering this as a white label
Commenting on the launch, Sharad Sanghi, Managing Director & CEO,
Netmagic Solutions, said, “Netmagic’s collaboration with VMware and
Cisco has helped create a global, best-in-class Public Cloud (IaaS)
platform with unique offerings for both Indian and overseas markets. We
intend to further leverage this relationship to tap into enterprise
virtualization and the private cloud market.”
“We are very excited about our partnership with Netmagic for developing
a global, best-in-class Public Cloud (IaaS) platform,” said T.
Srinivasan, Managing Director, VMware India and SAARC. “The VSPP enables
our partners like Netmagic to offer solutions that provide
cost-effective, custom-made cloud infrastructure through a simplified,
easily accessible service model. This partnership will create new
opportunities to offer virtualization-enabled solutions, applications
and services for their customers and sets the foundation for greater
profitability. I am optimistic that this strategic partnership will help
accelerate the proliferation of innovative cloud services and solutions
Also commenting on the collaboration, Mr. Rajesh Rege, Sr. Vice
President – Data Center, Cisco India & SAARC, said, “A journey to an IT
cloud infrastructure requires changes both in the technology and the
operations of a business. As more companies understand what a cloud
infrastructure could mean for the agility of their business, there is a
growing realization that it will need to be built differently. Cisco and
VMware together offer a truly integrated technology platform that
addresses the challenges of infrastructure virtualization and reduces
the risk for enterprises planning to move to private clouds. We are
excited to be associated with Netmagic as a key link in the value chain
of high-value service delivery.”
