Mumbai, India (PressExposure) July 27, 2011 -- Netmagic Solutions, India's largest pure-play managed IT hosting services firm and leader in the Cloud Infrastructure (IaaS) market, today, launched the third generation of its enterprise-grade on-demand public cloud services - SimpliCloud (Cloud Services on Public Internet), HybriCloud (Public Cloud Services extended to an enterprise's dedicated IT infrastructure over secure VPN) and Private Cloud (Dedicated Cloud Services for an enterprise). All cloud services come with Netmagic's highly reliable 24x7x365 mission-critical human support that is still not common practice in the industry.
Netmagic is offering a 15 day free trial of its public cloud (IaaS) service at http://www.simplicloud.com
Developed at its R&D Labs in Pune, SimpliCloud already has many large, medium and small enterprises across India, hosting a variety of CRM, ERP, e-campaign, mail and messaging, e-commerce and custom applications.
SimpliCloud is suited for all organizations; right from those managing just a few servers to those that need complex IT infrastructure setups involving hundreds of servers, network and storage resources to support mission-critical business processes. With SimpliCloud they get enterprise-grade infrastructure and industry-leading SLAs in a simple pay-for-what-you-use monthly or hourly billing model with the added benefit of scaling up or down at will. SimpliCloud also comes with flexible pre-paid and post paid billing plan options; both online and offline. SimpliCloud is a comprehensive suite delivering all IT infrastructure components as are required to handle any business critical application and includes SimpliCompute for compute resources, SimpliStor for external storage and SimpliNet for firewalls and load balancers. SimpliCloud also has a brand new user interface that makes it intuitive for even a first time user to configure cloud resources, in a matter of minutes.
Netmagic's HybriCloud service is the best fit for enterprises looking for solutions that can help them extend their existing dedicated IT infrastructure and enable it with unlimited scalability, using Netmagic's public cloud resources over a secure VPN, while still retaining the four-walled security of their enterprise IT network. HybriCloud enables organizations to have an optimum blend of dedicated in-house hardware resources and public cloud resources - all working on a single logical network thereby meeting the most stringent performance, security as well as scalability demands of any critical business application. HybriCloud thus helps CTOs to have a smooth change over from existing captive resources to a secure and scalable public cloud and avoid the need for early depreciation of existing IT infrastructure investments as they start the journey to move onto the cloud.
Organizations can also choose a customized hosted "Private Cloud" set-up based on their requirement. Netmagic also announced launch of two partner programs - SimpliConnect and SimpliSell to facilitate cloud adoption.
SimpliConnect - Netmagic Cloud Ecosystem Partner Program brings together Application Developers, ISVs, System Integrators, PaaS & SaaS providers and helps them capitalize on Netmagic's SimpliCloud IaaS offering. The participating partners can transform their current business model into a service based OPEX model. The program is a step towards creating an eco-system of partners to meet the rapidly growing demand for cloud-based delivery of platform and applications, and also make it easy for end-user organizations to move onto the cloud.
SimpliSell - Netmagic Cloud Affiliate Program, on the other hand, is aimed at increasing the penetration of cloud services especially in Tier 2 & 3 cities in India through channel partners. In another first in the IaaS industry, Netmagic's SimpliSell program enables partners to resell SimpliCloud's white-labeled cloud services under their own brand and price point. Partners can resell the SimpliCloud service on transfer pricing model or go for white-labeling. The white-labeled services provide partner's their own branding and flexibility to integrate with their own billing system and payment gateway.
Sharad Sanghi, MD & CEO, Netmagic says, "Netmagic's cloud business is growing at more than 100%. There is a clear intent from customers to leverage the cloud for greater business flexibility and no upfront investment. They also want a simple solution that can make their journey onto the cloud hassle-free. We were the first to identify this opportunity in India and launched our cloud services in April 2009. By backing it up with the highest level of support and with our initiatives to enable the ecosystem; we hope to push cloud adoption in India significantly." He also added, "We have seen an increased adoption of cloud services in the last two quarters where 90% of all our SimpliCloud Proof of Concepts have been successful, adding to our list of SimpliCloud customers."
