Stocks in this article: CTL

ST. LOUIS, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Savvis, a CenturyLink company (NYSE: CTL) and global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions, today announced the global availability of Savvis Cloud Data Center, a virtual data center service built on VMware vCloud Director® 5.1 and Cisco's Unified Data Center technologies to offer businesses a simplified platform for complex hybrid cloud solutions.

Savvis Cloud Data Center expands on the company's pioneering virtual private data center solutions. It enables users to flexibly build software-defined data center services that manage compute capabilities, storage, network connectivity and security operations.

"Businesses are looking to migrate applications hosted on-premise into the cloud using a variety of hybrid solutions," said Andrew Higginbotham, chief technology officer at Savvis. "Designed for customers who rely on VMware technologies, Savvis Cloud Data Center streamlines extensions into the cloud with easy-to-use familiar interfaces and tools for scaling performance to their needs."

Cloud Data Center standardizes to VMware vCloud Director 5.1, simplifying workload migration and integration. It runs on Cisco's Unified Computing System (UCS), which taps the full potential of virtualization and cloud platforms through total infrastructure abstraction and API-driven automation.

"Savvis is a partner that understands how to use VMware technologies to help companies build, deploy and manage critical business solutions," said Dave O'Callaghan, senior vice president of Global Channels and Alliances, VMware. "Cloud Data Center, built on vCloud Director® 5.1, can provide businesses with a simple and flexible platform for hybrid cloud delivery that enables control and choice on where to run applications and effective asset protection through true data center extensibility."

"Savvis has consistently demonstrated its leadership in providing high-value cloud, network and managed hosting services. Cloud Data Center further reinforces this position and our longstanding partnership," said Giuliano Di Vitantonio, vice president, data center and cloud solutions marketing, Cisco. "The integration of Cisco's Unified Data Center technologies, such as UCS and Unified Fabric, gives Savvis Cloud Data Center end-users the dynamic infrastructure foundation they need to build, manage and connect public, private and hybrid clouds in a secure and efficient manner."

Early client feedback reveals the Cloud Data Center experience balances simplicity and cost benefits with flexibility and control. Cloudswell, for example, signed up as a beta client and continues to use the service to meet its customers' needs.

"We vetted many providers with great solutions in specific types of service offerings, but chose Savvis Cloud Data Center based upon its ability to provide top-tier services across many different service classes," said Roger Hale, vice president of cloud services and chief information security officer at Cloudswell. "Working with Savvis, we have employed a hybrid cloud solution that provides scalability, flexibility and budgetary control with the visibility and auditability to meet our customers' information security and compliance requirements."

Savvis Cloud Data Center is part of a broad suite of scalable, on-demand cloud services available through Savvis data centers across North America, Europe and Asia.

Savvis offers a complete portfolio of IT solutions including managed hosting, colocation, consulting services and CenturyLink's global network services. For more information about Savvis Cloud Data Center, visit http://www.savvis.com/cloud-data-center.
