Globe invites companies to ride on its cloud
Ayala-led Globe Telecom Inc. is hopping on the “cloud computing” bandwagon with the release of its latest enterprise services for corporate clients that allow companies to experience new technologies without investing in expensive equipment.
Globe said cloud services, offered through its Globe Business unit, are the next phase in communications for business customers whose communication needs continue to evolve.
“Globe remains steadfast in its commitment to provide superior customer experience as the solutions enabler and preferred partner of the top corporations in the Philippines,” said Jesus C. Romero, head of Globe Business.
“We bring in new services such as cloud computing to make sure that the enterprise market in the Philippines is kept abreast and has access to the most advanced, relevant ICT solutions available in the market today,” Romero added.
In a recent briefing, Globe announced the availability of its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) products.
With Globe IaaS, companies can have access to the latest technologies without the high costs of purchasing and maintaining hardware.
As equipment that supports operations are outsourced to a virtual environment, customers can get network access and solutions on-demand, and pay only for what they use.
Whether it is storage, back up, hardware, servers or network components, these resources can be provisioned fast and are highly-scalable suited to the specific needs of businesses.
“With Cloud Solutions, our clients can reap all the benefits such as flexibility, security and cost-efficiency, and more importantly, they can now focus more on making their businesses grow,” Romero said.
Through IaaS, Globe said it now offers backup and restore services for critical data to and from Globe’s highly-secure data centers using the best backup/restoration software offered in the market.
Similarly, Compute as a Service will allow enterprises to acquire processing power without the high cost of purchasing additional servers.
Server “instances” or virtual machines are hosted in Globe’s ISO-certified data centers, which customers can load with their choice of OS and applications.
Storage as a Service, on the other hand, will enable customers to upload all their current files and even years of archived documents to Globe’s storage facilities, which are guarded with the highest standards of security to give users peace of mind. Customers can browse and download data as they please, and are also given additional storage space on-demand.
