BroadAspect's PowerScale Infrastructure is an enterprise strength cloud computing platform built on VMware's vCloud cloud computing solution. Our primary hosting focus is on multi-server mission-critical environments. BroadAspect offers customers a full circle collaborative approach to planning, operating and supporting your applications as an extension to your internal team. Our consultative sales process helps determine the most effective design for your business requirements, and brings in engineering specialists with deep, hands-on experience with high-volume transactional applications. This approach ultimately provides the best results for application up time and performance, without even mentioning lowered operating costs.
Virtualizationís most obvious benefit is consolidation of servers, but its less obvious benefits are what make it a truly revolutionary technology for the datacenter: by decoupling the server from the hardware it runs on, Virtual Machines (VMs) become truly portable, allowing them to move from physical server to physical server without reconfiguration, which facilitates rapid provisioning and recovery.
Cloud computing services are offered at BroadAspect through the PowerScale Infrastructure platform in two service tiers; Standard and Enterprise. The standard tier is the entry level service offering and comes with many powerful capabilities at a very competitive price point per computing resource. Servers within this tier are standardized by package and quick to deploy, designed for customer's first cloud servers and can easily be moved into the Enterprise tier or a custom Hybrid tier in the future. The Enterprise service tier is designed for mission critical applications that demand performance and a higher service level agreement. This service tier scales into very large and complex customer environments to support the largest application requirements.
The PowerScale Infrastructure clusters are built on fully redundant network and computing hardware components, offering real-time cluster load balancing and virtual server high availability in the event of a host hardware fault.
While it's important to recognize that not all cloud platforms are created equal, BroadAspect believes its even more important to recognize that Cloud Computing platforms are only one part of the solution to a complex infrastructure. Not all customers' requirements are the same and not all requirements are best fit into a total cloud solution. BroadAspect often deploys our hosting solutions in a hybrid configuration, with certain applications running in a virtualized environment, and others, typically large databases, running in traditional bare metal deployments. Clouds themselves can include a spectrum of architecture configurations, with both dedicated and/or shared physical resources.
