Manhattan Beach, Calif. – May 9, 2011 – Morphlabs, the efficient computing company powering many of the world’s largest public and private clouds, today announced the Company has engaged with Arista Networks, Broadband Tower Inc., Citrix Systems Inc. (NYSE: CTXS), CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR) and Nexenta Systems to deliver its mCloud Data Center Unit (DCU). mCloud DCU is a cloud infrastructure blueprint bound together by mCloud software, designed to deliver mission critical capabilities at the lowest total cost of ownership.
Stefan Ried, Ph.D., writes, “Dynamic infrastructure services, which are the virtual private cloud counterpart of IaaS in the public cloud, are combining pure infrastructure with high-level services and close integration into existing on-premises landscapes. This segment is just about to see real growth and will outperform IaaS in the public cloud in the long run.” [Sizing The Cloud, Forrester Research, Inc., April 21, 2011]
The mCloud DCU addresses the complexity of cloud computing by tightly pre-integrating, best-of-breed, innovative cloud building blocks including Arista Networks’ 10Gb switches, Nexenta Systems’ enterprise-class open source storage and Citrix® NetScaler®, a powerful, all-in-one application delivery solution. The mCloud DCU features end-to-end fault tolerance, scalable infrastructure and highly-flexible cloud compute, storage and network services that rival other leading industry offerings at a fraction of the price.
“Morphlabs’ mCloud DCU is a proven scalable solution,” said Doug Gourlay, vice president of marketing at Arista Networks. “Arista and Morphlabs have both been innovators in delivering scalable and performant cloud infrastructure, and the integrated solution provides groundbreaking value.”
mCloud DCUs are optimized for data center deployments requiring minimal power per VM delivered. Morphlabs selected CoreSite (U.S.) and BroadBand Tower (Japan) as the initial DCU data center hubs, leveraging CoreSite’s CloudCommunity project as well as BroadBand Tower’s expansive data centers. Both CoreSite and BroadBand Tower offer the scalability and fault tolerance of a massively scalable public cloud, with the control and ownership of a hosted private cloud in their state-of-the-art facilities. Upon successful implementation, CoreSite and BroadBand Tower customers will have hands-on, trial period access to private and hybrid cloud environments facilitated by mCloud.
“The mCloud DCU is a transformative offering. As data centers transition into the cloud, the performance and simplicity of a solution like mCloud DCU is an unprecedented option,” saidExecutive President Toshihiko Yamato, of Broadband Tower. Chuck Price, senior vice president, Information Technology, at CoreSite added: “CoreSite’s CloudCommunity is the ideal environment to deploy the mCloud DCU. We are excited to support mCloud’s availability to our 200+ data center customers in the Los Angeles area through this low-barrier to entry program, enabling significant value-add in a no-cost, no-obligation trial environment.”
mCloud DCU Systems Integrators like Cirrhus9 and ZeroLag Communications make it easy for service providers and enterprises to deliver a real cloud offering that is fully-managed and tailored for their specific needs. “We are extremely excited to have deployed the mCloud DCU for our customers,” said Greg Strelzoff, CEO of ZeroLag Communications. “It allowed us to quickly gain entry to this nascent market with an offering that is competitive now and for years to come.”
Cloud computing provides great promise and pragmatic solutions to manage the cost of IT while spurring innovation. The mCloud DCU solution delivers on this great promise by minimizing deployment risks and empowering development teams and deployment engineers to become more productive. “In this young and burgeoning market, we are very excited with the acceptance of our solutions by a robust ecosystem,” says Winston Damarillo, founder and CEO of Morphlabs.
