Informix in the Cloud launched

New Private Cloud leads the market in offering IT and Informix capabilities on demand, giving organisations infrastructure, expertise, licensing, maintenance, service and support at the ‘flick of a switch’.

Ardenta, specialist provider of IT infrastructure including Managed IT Services, Hosting & Cloud Solutions and Professional Services, has formally announced the launch of the UK’s only Informix Private Cloud solution. The new service offers a unique proposition for organisations running Informix, with on-demand access to the latest hardware, Informix software and infrastructure. Ardenta’s Private Cloud is backed by the company’s strengths and technical excellence as Informix experts and a certified IBM Premier Business Partner in the UK.

The Ardenta Private Cloud solution provides organisations using Informix with an intelligent pathway to new Cloud-based ways of working, bringing the benefits of cost-efficiencies, a superior service and minimum risk. The service removes the responsibility for Informix licensing and system administration, allowing organisations to rely entirely on Ardenta for Informix technical skills, infrastructure maintenance, service and support.

On announcing the launch, Ardenta’s Managing Director, Neil Truby said: “In today’s market, Informix skills and expertise are not always easy to find. They often come with a price tag reflecting that fact. With Informix infrastructure in Ardenta’s Private Cloud, organisations get the most cost-effective, agile and reliable Informix solution available today.”

Neil Truby continued: “That means a radically new way of working that delivers major savings, drives down costs and drives up performance and availability. Already we have a number of prestigious customers: Local World (a local media business that brings together Northcliffe Media and Iliffe News and Media), Coral Interactive, IGT (WagerWorks) and more for this unique solution and many more are in the pipeline.”

“It is also important to us that as our customers’ businesses evolve and change that we offer them the flexibility to simply adjust their Informix solution quickly and easily. Instant scalability is vital to business cost and effectiveness. I see Ardenta’s Informix Private Cloud Solution as filling this gap in the market.”

Ardenta’s fully managed Private Cloud solution offers instant scalability, predictable and lower unit costs, as well as service and support to deliver reliability, performance, backups and recoverability. It addresses organisations’ concerns about IBM software security, compliance, complexities and the costs associated with keeping Informix environments up and running. Informix in the Cloud simplifies licensing, upgrades and maintenance while providing full customer service and support. Importantly, and it is PCI-DSS compliant.

Ardenta’s cloud solutions include industry-leading VMware vCloud technology, enabling Ardenta to rapidly provide private virtual infrastructure to suit requirements, around the clock. The Private Cloud solution includes hosted virtual servers attached to high spec SAN, backed by recent major investments and upgrades. Site-to-site VPN access is included, as well as Disaster Recovery, Backup and Recovery, System Admin Back Ups, best-in-class service, support and SLAs.

Ardenta’s Managing Director, Neil Truby, concluded: “We have worked hard to build up our Cloud and virtualisation specialisation, having gained many years experience of VMware technology for organisations such as Centrebet, Ladbrokes, William Hill and others.

“As experts we’ve founded our Private Cloud infrastructure on the best technology, skills and experience: with two state-of-the-art data centres, the highest spec hosted virtual servers, and a whole lot more. Combine this with our Informix expertise and we have a powerful proposition in the marketplace.”
