Cloud Computing is computing resources and/or applications delivered or accessible via the Internet.
Utility Computing is the next generation of systems design which truly delivers capability in an open architecture. You purchase computing capability and resources just like you purchase water and electricity from your utility company or how you rent an apartment or car.
We provide Virtual Private Servers, Virtual Private Firewalls, and Virtual Private SAN. Of these components customers can access, configure, maintain and control 100% of every aspect of the resources they have purchased. VBS can perform this service for our customers or backup the customer’s in-house expertise.
Virtual Private Networks differ in that VBS will manage the transport infrastructure. There are two reasons. Routers, Switches and VPN concentrators are not currently designed to share configuration and management between multiple tenants. They can transport and segregate multiple tenants’ traffic keeping different systems separated. Because of the lack of multi-tenant management there are serious security concerns if the systems are not configured and maintained by a central authority.
The advantages of Utility Computing are enormous. The biggest is on-demand growth. If you need more resources, just request more and you will have them in minutes.
Since there is no difference in renting a car, apartment, office space or computing resources in Utility Computing. Just be sure to remove your property before you return the car, move out of the office or apartment. The same applies to Utility Computing, except we’ll even help you move and clean the space up for the next tenant.
Because we offer Virtual Private SAN, you’ll never lose control of your data. You can even encrypt the storage to comply with HIPPA, PCI-DSS and other compliance regulations.
