PRESS RELEASE – TAMPA, Fla., June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Bright House Networks Enterprise Solutions announced today the introduction of two new cloud solutions designed to bring increased agility, cost-efficiency, and scalability to enterprise businesses. The newly added Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) provide enterprises cloud-based virtual server resources, data backup, and hosted software applications, delivered over the secure and private connectivity of Bright House Networks all-fiber network. These new cloud solutions leverage Bright House Networks private fiber connectivity in order to deliver low latency and carrier class reliability, and are supported by locally based teams of technical professionals.
“Businesses today are looking for the right solutions and partners to help them transform and thrive in a world of rapid cloud application adoption,” said Craig Cowden, chief network officer and senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions, Bright House Networks. “With new demands being placed on IT departments every day, enterprises need smart technologies that allow them to become agile, intelligent businesses.”
Bright House Networks new IaaS solution consists of Cloud Compute and Cloud Backup. Cloud Compute is a virtual server on-demand resource, allowing for rapid provisioning of compute resources through an intuitive self-serve management portal. Cloud Backup is an automated data backup utility for end-user computers and servers configured through the management portal. As a cloud-based solution, IaaS replaces significant upfront capital expenditure with an affordable operating expenditure, and also provides a strong service provider support relationship.
The company’s SaaS solution offers businesses a number of applications that enable them to execute and operate software services entirely from the cloud on a recurring subscription, simplifying deployment, and improving productivity. The hosted applications include Microsoft® Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint®, and Web hosting. The SaaS solutions allow organizations to avoid the high costs and complexities of traditional software licensing.
“Productivity-boosting, cloud-based IaaS and SaaS solutions offer companies of all sizes the agility and cost-efficiencies needed to expand and succeed in today’s competitive environment,” continued Cowden. “Unlike some of the other national cloud warehouse vendors, our solutions are delivered over our private, secure, fiber-based wide area network. Our clients know they can expect the best from the cloud when it’s embedded as an integral part of their overall customized network solution from Bright House Networks.”
Bright House Networks Enterprise Solutions offers a comprehensive portfolio of voice, data, cloud, and managed services that can be customized to meet the communications needs of any organization. The company offers scalable solutions for clients to expand their level of service as needed, all delivered over its extensive and secure facilities-based IP core fiber network, which it owns and operates for best in class performance and reliability.
