Interoute launches business appliance CloudStore with a difference

All Appliances come with Interoute's pan European Network and Virtual Data Centres built in

London, 30 January 2013 - Interoute, owner operator of Europe's largest cloud services platform, has announced the launch of Interoute CloudStore, a converged compute and network platform, appliance marketplace and knowledge centre for enterprises seeking scalable ICT infrastructure. Built on top of Europe's largest cloud platform, and provisioned through Interoute's Virtual Data Centre (VDC), the Interoute CloudStore is a radical shift in ICT service delivery. Through Interoute CloudStore, enterprise IT departments, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) developers, and even the world's largest websites can purchase Interoute's network and infrastructure as a service, achieving unparalleled scale and diversity without compromising performance, data sovereignty, security or control.

Interoute CloudStore hosts the full spectrum of core ICT infrastructure, network, computing, communication and storage services needed to build sophisticated platforms. It provides the essential foundations for many business critical solutions, including certified applications from the likes of Microsoft, RedHat, Debian and Ubuntu. Interoute CloudStore also offers access to trusted appliance vendors for core functionality appliances, like Stonesoft and Riverbed. Not only does Interoute CloudStore replace the need to buy the physical equivalent of a firewall, load balancer or operating system, it also does away with the need to power these services, connect them up and make them work with the existing infrastructure. And it takes minutes rather than months to provision.

Interoute VDC is built into Interoute's pan-European MPLS/IP network. From this platform, CloudStore delivers private, public and hybrid clouds without compromising security or performance. The network provides organisations with the assurance of optimal routing, security, performance and end-to-end enterprise-level SLAs, for the applications running on it. It offers enterprises a unique prospect for transitioning their IT. Interoute takes care of the infrastructure, power, equipment, space and people requirements involved in creating a dynamic ICT environment, enabling organisations to focus on utilising the applications to drive their business forward. CloudStore appliances are certified, tested, and guaranteed with SLAs, replacing the need for businesses to buy, connect and integrate physical equipment within the rest of their infrastructure.

Matthew Finnie, Interoute CTO, said: "Interoute CloudStore is a game changer. It is the next generation of cloud computing; one that doesn't compromise on data sovereignty, privacy concerns or performance. It essentially combines a seriously scalable integrated network, compute and storage infrastructure with all the appliances you need to run an IT environment. The difference with CloudStore is in the delivery. If you buy and run an enterprise application without the right platform and SLAs to support it, you are effectively placing the productivity and security of your business data in the "wild". Appliance marketplaces perfectly complement the platform and are the future of the ICT purchasing model, but it is important for enterprises to understand what sits beneath them. "

Interoute CloudStore also provides users with an online knowledge centre to help them get the best out of Interoute's VDC infrastructure. This resource aims to encourage users to exchange ideas and help them evaluate, recommend and select a solution that suits their specific business need. From architecting the solution and choosing the technology, to implementation and management, CloudStore is a one-stop ecosystem for business on demand, in the cloud.
