Amsterdam, 30 November 2016 – LeaseWeb, one of the world’s largest hosting brands, today announced the extension of its cloud offering with Microsoft Azure Pack during Cloud Expo Europe. This extension signifies LeaseWeb’s dedication to creating a powerful hybrid cloud platform that helps enterprises transform their current infrastructure to deliver agility and cost effectiveness. The platform is now available in beta and ready for customers to try out*.
In today´s mobile and cloud-first world, organizations need a flexible platform in order to help achieve their business goals. LeaseWeb offers a diverse, open and flexible platform that unifies a heterogeneous environment of apps, devices, data and cloud infrastructure. This allows LeaseWeb clients to scale and customize their virtual infrastructure to their own specification, but without having to pay additional licensing fees for their Windows (2012+) servers. This makes the product very attractive for Microsoft-focused customers who are looking for a cost-effective Private Cloud platform.
“Unlike other vendors that require commitments to either cloud or on-premises solutions, Microsoft offers flexibility and choice that lets you maximize current and future investments to best support your business strategies through technology,” says Robert van der Meulen, Technical Evangelist of LeaseWeb. “With the extension of our cloud offering with Microsoft Azure Pack, we’ve taken the first step in offering enterprises and larger mid-market companies a competitive advantage, by unifying existing technology investments with the cloud through a consistent and hybrid cloud approach.”
The solution will be available for all customers as of early 2017. For more information, please visit https://www.leaseweb.com/cloud/private/microsoft-azure.
