Cbeyond Offers Businesses More Secure, Customized Access to the Cloud

New TotalCloud Data Center service offers enterprise-class advantages without equipment or expertise investment

Cbeyond Inc. on Monday announced the launch of its new TotalCloud(TM) Data Center managed service. With TotalCloud Data Center, small and medium-sized businesses can now access secure, enterprise-class, customizable cloud services without having to purchase, configure, install and manage servers.

Cbeyond's TotalCloud Data Center service is built on Microsoft Corp.'s Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V platform. It combines enterprise-class networking, storage and security to handle demanding, real-time business application workloads. Available in both public and private formats based on security needs, the service includes managed and monitored security features, backup services and round-the-clock infrastructure monitoring and support.

TotalCloud Data Center enables businesses to adjust storage, security and processing power individually to reflect changing business and operating requirements. Available features include load balancing, private firewalls and dedicated VLANs.

"With our TotalCloud Data Center service, businesses of any size can finally ditch their computer room and customize their own ideal cloud environment for business applications and processes," said Chris Gatch, chief technology officer, Cbeyond.

An early adopter of Microsoft's Technology Adoption Program (TAP), Cbeyond was one of the first cloud services providers to include customers in beta trials of the latest Windows Server 2012 operating system in March 2012.

"Windows Server 2012 was built from the cloud up, based on Microsoft's history of running large cloud datacenters and products," said Ian Carlson, Director, Product Marketing, Windows Server, Microsoft.
