As part of Qube’s recent data center migration to the new e-shelter facility in Zurich, Qube has upgraded storage and installed additional compute capacity on our VMware cloud hosting platform in Zurich.
The new blade server platform enables us to quickly and easily scale up the VMware cloud hosting platform as demand increases for our Qube Virtual Data Center and managed hosting services in Switzerland. With the recent product launch of Qube’s vCloud Powered infrastructure as a service offering, Qube Virtual Data Center (official VMware press release to follow) – we are now able to offer clients fully self-provisioned cloud services in Switzerland via a secure portal.
Qube’s Swiss Virtual Data Center offering allows clients to purchase the required amount of cloud resources (compute, RAM and disk storage) on the platform. Clients can then choose how they would like to allocate and provision those resources. Your Qube Virtual Data Center can be managed through a secure portal or via the API and allows clients to import and export their own templates, ISO’s images and virtual machine disks.
Qube’s upgraded Zurich cloud hosting platform uses powerful Intel Xeon E5649 Hexa-core CPU’s in dual-socket blades, each with 192GB of RAM and are now running the latest ESXi Version 5.
The new blade system also enables advanced hardware health monitoring, 4 x redundant power supply modules, N+1 networking & cooling – all ensuring that your cloud servers are performing and available 24/7.
