InterCloud to Acquire RentVM to Launch Software Defined Data Centers for Clients
By Shamila Janakiraman, TMCnet Contributor
InterCloud Systems, a provider of single-source end-to-end IT and networking solutions, has announced that it will be acquiring RentVM, a New Jersey-based provider of infrastructure-as-a-service technology.
InterCloud serves the needs of the service provider and corporate enterprise markets by offering cloud platforms and various professional services, including managed services, professional consulting services, and voice, data and optical solutions.
RentVM is expected to further augment InterCloud’s cloud and managed services capabilities by providing it with an SDDC (software defined data center) platform to deliver enterprise-grade cloud computing solutions.
Mark E. Munro InterCloud CEO said, “RentVM dramatically expands our cloud capabilities. This platform brings InterCloud systems: network, server and storage virtualization in some of the top datacenters in North America. With this level of connectivity InterCloud systems can offer private cloud services to potentially every single business address in US.”
The RentVM platform serves as a self-service portal that enables auto, on-demand provisioning of cloud assets by leveraging a hierarchy system. In addition to being highly secure, the solution also offers clients a streamlined process that helps virtualize existing infrastructure and integrate to cloud solutions.
Moreover, the cloud orchestration system features a software defined network (SDN) management tool that reduces the time to market for new products, thereby optimizing IT environments.
“By leveraging this platform, InterCloud systems will be able to offer several optimized open-source and license based business applications to its customers in multi-tenant or private cloud models. Our goal is to offer a full suite of cloud services to our customers and this acquisition will assist us in this endeavour,” Munro added.
This acquisition follows shortly after InterCloud inked a new two-year deal with Brooklyn Hospital Center. The company will be providing consulting, network design and implementation services to the hospital in addition to managing its networking elements and resources.
