Drastically Increases Flexibility for Hybrid Cloud Deployments
Denver, CO – October 14, 2015 – Faction, an enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud provider offering hybrid, private, and public cloud solutions for service providers, introduces the Faction Advanced Solutions Team (FAST), a team of experts adept at designing cloud solutions for highly complex and customized configurations. By leveraging FAST, enterprise clients can easily address their custom needs with hands-on, Faction-certified solutions specialists, who are expert handlers of demanding cloud requirements.
Purpose-built as a highly available, high performance cloud infrastructure platform, the Faction Cloud can be structured as private cloud, public cloud, or hybrid, and is used for a variety of situations, including backup, disaster recovery, and production workloads for starters. Its cloud bundles or ‘Blocs’ are resource pools containing a base amount of RAM, CPU, Storage, IOPS, network, and user-managed firewall – all with a 100% availability SLA. Customers can further fine-tune their resource Bloc(s) with additional processing, storage, IO, network, and managed services as needed. When deeper engineering expertise is required, for requests such as bare metal installations, calibrating applications for the cloud, or even hybrid cloud architecture development, FAST will execute these complex tasks to completion.
“Faction prides itself on delivering truly customized cloud platforms, unlike other cloud providers who typically only offer one-size-fits-all options,” comments Luke Norris, Chief Executive Officer for Faction. “Through our Faction Advanced Solutions Team, our customers have access to some of the most talented and innovative cloud design experts in the industry. Our dedicated specialists can handle any customer requirement and are able to tackle even the most complex and ambitious cloud initiatives with professionalism and ease.”
Potential Faction Advanced Solutions Use-Cases:
- Bare Metal Solutions – Faction can assist with high performance bare metal solution configurations so clients can run their own hypervisor or management platform, such as OpenStack.
- Hybrid Computing and Colocation – Faction engineers can unify multiple cloud environments, colocation providers or on-premise locations and integrate all of them into one cohesive architecture.
- Recalibration of Workloads for the Cloud – For customers that are switching cloud providers or have workloads that are currently too burdensome for cloud use, FAST can re-design the workloads from the ground up.
- InterCloud – As the interconnected global cloud of clouds, InterCloud allows users to leverage the best of every cloud provider. Faction’s InterCloud solutions feature remote NetApp storage replication for AWS enterprise customers.
