SingleHop Unveils Enterprise-Class Virtual Private Cloud for Businesses of All Sizes

Cloud Infrastructure Provider Leverages Wide Range of Technologies to Deliver a Dynamic Virtual Private Cloud Solution to All Enterprises

CHICAGO – Oct. 21, 2014 –SingleHop, a leading provider of cloud-enabled managed hosting, today announced the launch of its new Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) offering. Built on a range of enterprise technologies from VMware, Veeam, EMC, and many others, and fully integrated with SingleHop’s global cloud automation and orchestration platform, Virtual Private Cloud provides a groundbreaking way for businesses of any size to benefit from a private, yet scalable cloud strategy. This new infrastructure offering is especially significant for small to medium-sized enterprises as it brings a unique combination of enterprise capabilities, fixed-cost economics, and public cloud style elasticity.

SingleHop’s Virtual Private Cloud is offered and deployed on a pure allocation basis, giving customers the freedom and flexibility to granularly allocate very specific resources to their Virtual Private Cloud. From a scalability standpoint, this empowers customers to dynamically scale their Virtual Private Cloud’s resources up and down with ease – a novel and rare capability in the private cloud space.

Virtual Private Cloud has achieved VMware Hybrid Cloud Powered status, illustrating to customers that the company’s cloud services are underpinned by VMware’s leading virtualization and cloud computing technology, namely VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud® Director™. Customers can deploy an unlimited number of Virtual Private Clouds from within SingleHop’s LEAP interface, and can manage each VPC individually through direct, administrator-level access to VMware’s vCloud Director.

“Deploying a Virtual Private Cloud solves a number of common problems for businesses today. First, the pricing model is allocation-driven, easy to understand and fixed, meaning you don’t pay more just because you deploy a new Virtual Server inside of a Virtual Private Cloud,” said Jordan Jacobs, Vice President of Products at SingleHop. “Second, it’s scalable, in two ways. You can allocate and reallocate your resources to any Virtual Server inside of your Virtual Private Cloud anytime you want. And finally, the size of your Virtual Private Cloud itself can be scaled quickly and easily.”

In August, VMware announced VMware vCloud® Air™ Network, consisting of its vCloud Air offering and the VMware Service Provider ecosystem of more than 3,800 partners in over 100 countries. As a member of the vCloud Air Network™, SingleHop provides VMware based cloud infrastructure in the simplest way possible to enterprises of any size and shape. In addition to access to VMware technology, the company will support a wide range of software licenses, and managed and white glove services, giving users the ability to choose the combination of resources that best aligns with the demands of their business. Through the award-winning SingleHop LEAP portal, businesses enjoy unparalleled ease in ongoing management and maintenance of their private cloud from a single platform.

“Enterprises are clamoring for the agility, efficiency and cost savings that a hybrid cloud can offer,” said Jim Aluotto, Director, Service Provider Sales, Americas Region at VMware. “ Through the use of VMware solutions, SingleHop is bringing those elements together.”
