ITsavvy’s Leading-Edge Cloud Solutions Expand with Smart IaaS Solution
August 25, 2017
ADDISON, Ill.—ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing integrated IT products and technology solution providers in the U.S., just announced the expansion of their Cloud Solutions portfolio with savvyCloud® —an industry leading IaaS solution; savvyCloud protects an organization’s data and operations while improving cost management and productivity.
IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service) is computing and storage along with networking that is provisioned and managed over the Internet. This trending technology provides a secure, scalable environment for computing, storage, backup, test and development, and big data analysis.
ITsavvy President and CEO Mike Theriault said, “Moving all or a portion of computing capabilities to the cloud can be tricky. We have developed the right technologies and advanced expertise to deliver customized strategies, smooth transitions, secure environments and personalized service. That is exactly what the market is looking for.”
For the last two years, ITsavvy has been strengthening and expanding its cloud, backup and network management offerings. The resulting savvyCloud solution is an optimized IaaS offering for organizations that lack the in-house time and certified expertise to adequately manage their cloud strategies, but need solution customization and time-sensitive support that large-scale cloud vendors cannot provide.
Steve Lupinski, Director, ITsavvy Data Center, said, “The industry’s typical cloud support offerings are ticket-based and can result in slower SLA response times. To move to a higher level of support can be a very expensive option that is often prohibitive for small and mid-sized organizations. At ITsavvy, however, personalized support is a single call away.”
The savvyCloud IaaS solution delivers secure cloud service along with ITsavvy’s one-on-one client service. Clients gain the assurance and security of ITsavvy’s own data center technology, the expertise of ITsavvy’s cloud engineers, and service from ITsavvy’s certified smart hands technical team. ITsavvy engineers have advanced certifications that include network management, backup and disaster recovery.
With savvyCloud, each client engagement is fully customized. ITsavvy can add as much or as little management and support as the client desires and alert the client when service is interrupted. With the addition of savvyGuard, ITsavvy’s network management solution, a certified team can oversee cloud activity and respond immediately.
ITsavvy offers several tiers of service that can include 24x7x365 monitoring by ITsavvy’s in-house Network Operations Center staff and 24x7x365 U.S.-based help desk support. ITsavvy’s state-of-the-art data centers include the latest, proven technologies from Cisco, Dell EMC, HPE, Citrix, PureStorage, Microsoft, VMware and Unitrends.
