AllOverviewVirtual Data Center (VDC) services Uni Systems’ Uni|Workplaces service provides enterprise on-demand scalable provisioning of IT services in production as well as in test and development environments. The platform enables IT agility by allowing infrastructure to be consumed on an elastic basis, rapidly scaling up and down as business requirements change. The service is based on the Uni Systems cloud platform which sets the standard for enterprise-class infrastructure and application performance. A robust, virtualised infrastructure deployed in Uni Systems’ Data Center, the Uni|Cloud platform serves as the underlying technology for all of our infrastructure, hardware, and application service offerings. The platform includes the building blocks of a system infrastructure service, including: Virtualised servers. Windows Server and Linux operating systems. Storage. Networking. Firewalls. Load balancers. Backup. Server Replication option. Uni Systems uses its own data center located within the Greek territory to provide its IaaS services. This means that data is ultimately stored by our clients within the IaaS environment in Greece and therefore remains fully compliant with the Greek and EU legislation for data handling. FeaturesFitting your Production or Development and Testing to the Cloud Tapping on-demand cloud computing capacity is seen by many as a faster and more cost effective way of providing capacity to enterprises, for the following three reasons: Higher quality from better coverage: Organizations that have tapped the cloud for on-demand capacity realize that the combination of variable capacity and cost lets them perform production or dev and test scenarios that were previously cost prohibitive. Capacity on demand: To manage capacity fluctuations, many organizations constantly shuffle capacity amongst various projects. Constantly setting up and tearing down environments comes at great operational expense. Constantly shuffling capacity between projects not only creates cost. It also costs time. The ability to instantly stand up capacity in the cloud not only cuts operational expenses, but more importantly it makes capacity available almost immediately. Capacity by the sip: Unlike steady-state production environments, pre-production environments can suffer from wild capacity fluctuations. The “pay-as-you-use” cloud cost model is seen as much more cost effective than over-provisioning dedicated capacity. If an environment requiring massive server capacity needs to only run for an hour, enterprises need only to pay for this capacity, thus for an hour. After the hour is up, the capacity is released back to the cloud. Transparent bridge and access between enterprise and Cloud Many cloud use cases will require access and connectivity with infrastructure that remains within the enterprise data center. For example, the initial migration of the dev and test workload into the cloud may require a secure connection. Centralized repositories for source code check-in/ check-out may remain within the enterprise data center. Additionally, systems running in the cloud may need to query the enterprise’s directory/identity management infrastructure, which will almost certainly remain within the enterprise data center.
