Meeting the special needs of service providers

More customers are relying on service providers to manage all or part of their data centers – everything from running systems and networks located at the customer location to buying, configuring, and managing all of the systems, networks, and storage (and even the middleware and applications) at the service provider location.  In all cases, customers expect the service provider to commit to specific levels of availability, performance, and cost; to provide new services and changes to existing services quickly and reliably; and to maintain privacy and security.

To meet all of these requirements, service providers need solutions based on resilient, flexible systems with tools to manage, diagnose and optimize the performance and availability of applications and servers.  Supporting multiple customers, while maintaining data privacy and separation of applications, requires the right system foundation to manage the virtual images coupled with the service delivery features of the cloud.  Service providers need solutions with systems, storage, networking, software, and optional services that can be ordered, installed, and configured quickly with flexible economics that provide a balance between low initial investment and affordable, predictable operating costs.
