PRESS RELEASE – ANDOVER, Mass. – Aug. 3, 2015 – NaviSite, Inc., a Time Warner Cable company, announced it has expanded its offerings with VMware to deliver a wide portfolio of cloud, self-service and managed technologies to empower today’s enterprise. As a member of VMware’s vCloud® Air™ Network Service Provider Program, NaviSite will leverage industry leading VMware technology alongside its enterprise-class hosting and managed cloud services, to enable customers to expand their cloud infrastructure and scale their business.
The expanded relationship with VMware enables NaviSite to provide enhanced benefits to customers, including a broader portfolio of integrated solutions aimed at accelerating the deployment, scalability, and movement of enterprise workloads to NaviSite’s multi-site, multi-geography cloud fabric. It will also accelerate NaviSite’s product innovation by enabling earlier access to new technology and platform updates from VMware.
“NaviSite has been providing complex managed services on VMware’s hypervisor technology for more than a decade now, and has worked with VMware to translate the software-defined data center vision into a reality with our NaviCloud Compute Infrastructure as a Service offering,” said Sumeet Sabharwal, General Manager of NaviSite. “We are proud to further elevate our relationship with VMware unlocking additional benefits for our customers including compressed innovation cycles and access to deep technical and engineering expertise.”
Another benefit of this relationship is that businesses can now “test drive” the NaviSite cloud, powered by VMware vCloud ® technology, complimentary for 30 days. This trial provides companies a risk-free opportunity to experience NaviSite’s NaviCloud Director platform free of charge. Following the 30-day term, the trial can be converted to a production account with a few simple clicks if the customer wants to continue service.
NaviSite was recently named VMware’s 2015 Global and Americas Service Provider Partner of the Year for the company’s leadership in bringing cost-effective, agile, on-demand IT solutions to the global cloud market in meeting the ever-growing complex demands of their customers.
