Pacnet unveils new IaaS solution in Thailand

Telecom Lead Asia: Communications provider Pacnet has
launched its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution called Pacnet Virtual
Private Server (VPS) in Thailand.


With Pacnet’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution,
customers in Thailand will be able to deploy reliable virtualized server
hosting environments cost-effectively and rapidly.


“Pacnet VPS leverages the latest server
virtualization technology to enable businesses to get access to reliable and
rapidly scalable server hosting environments without requiring a huge upfront
capital investment,” said Chris Wilson, senior vice president of product
strategy and management, Pacnet.


Hosted in Bangkok, Pacnet VPS uses Pacnet’s Internet
Services, and delivers high-performance and high-resiliency virtual servers
that function just like physical servers.


The company said that the new offering allows customers
the flexibility to choose from four configurations that are ‘mall, Medium,
Large and Extra large’ to match their compute and storage requirements.


Built from virtualization software, servers, storage
equipment and platforms, the service provide customers with a choice to use
either Microsoft Windows Server Standard or Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the
operating system of the virtual server.


“We have seen a growing number of organizations in
Thailand, especially in key industries such as manufacturing, recognizing the
need for an IaaS solution such as Pacnet VPS, so as to enable them to quickly
add the capability to host applications and data, that will deliver added value
to their businesses,” said Paisan Kaweyanun, country manager, Pacnet Thailand.


Optional features include additional virtual CPU, storage
or software, which may also be included as part of the service package. The
service is also offered on a monthly fee over flexible 12, 24 or 36-month
