RapidScale, UNSi Partner to Offer CloudMPLS

April 05, 2013 - News

United Network Services Inc. (UNSi), a provider of carrier and managed services, and RapidScale Inc., an emerging cloud application provider, have partnered to create a new service called CloudMPLS, which will be delivered through each of the company's respective direct and indirect sales channels.

CloudMPLS combines UNSi's private and secure MPLS network services with RapidScale's cloud services, including CloudDesktop, CloudRecovery, CloudService, CloudOffice and CloudMail.

In addition to cloud applications, the service includes monitoring of application performance, network, infrastructure, bandwidth, routers and switches.

To accomplish this, UNSi has connected its MPLS network into RapidScale's data centers in Sterling, Va., and Irvine, Ca. An additional location in Dallas is expected to turn up later in the year. In addition, the companies have teamed to offer NOC and customer support.

CloudMPLS enables the companies to deliver cloud services with quality of service and security ensured. In addition, CloudMPLS will offer end-users quick ROI  since Internet access can be delivered from CloudMPLS facilities at a fraction of the cost of dedicated bandwidth to an office.

RapidScale CEO Randy Jeter said the service is unique in offering application management, network and infrastructure monitoring and a single point of support. "We believe CloudMPLS truly delivers the best end-user experience in an office environment," he said.
