QTS Realty Trust has launched the QTS Enterprise Cloud, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution.  Built upon industry-leading VMware, EMC and Cisco technologies, the platform is secure and flexible to meet evolving enterprise IT infrastructure needs.

"As a VMware vCloud® Powered Partner, QTS has adopted VMware vCloud Suite to deliver its Enterprise Cloud Services," said Geoff Waters, vice president, Global Channel Partners –VMware.  "We congratulate QTS on the launch of QTS Enterprise Cloud."

QTS Enterprise Cloud is housed in QTS' Atlanta-Suwanee and Santa Clara data centers, which employ multi-factor physical and logical security protocols. QTS' Enterprise Cloud extends the cloud and managed services component of the company's 3C's product portfolio, and meets growing market demand among enterprise customers for control and visibility.

"Our approach to the enterprise cloud is to make it as scalable and efficient as possible for our customers," said Jim Reinhart, chief operating officer, development and operations – QTS.  "This thinking is the reason we use best-of-breed technologies versus proprietary software to ensure our cloud solution's architecture is flexible to meet current and future demands."

QTS' Enterprise Cloud is a virtual data center that provides all compute, storage, network and security components.  QTS Enterprise Cloud utilizes VMware vCloud® Suite, a proven platform from the market leader in virtualization, to support a hybrid environment. Together with performance-based storage from EMC, QTS' newest offering will provide an adaptive infrastructure enabling business agility and flexibility.

"EMC is proud to partner with QTS as they grow their cloud-based service offerings built on EMC technology," said Michelle De Hertogh, senior director, Strategic Partner Marketing - EMC Corporation. "Customers require differentiated cloud solutions that are flexible, secure and will scale to address their complex business challenges. The QTS solution delivers a combination of best-of-breed technology and operations expertise for customers who are transforming their IT."

QTS' Enterprise Cloud is a self-management interface with performance-based storage and a "pay as you go" resource management option that provides access to additional resources as needed.  Additional resources and service options are available, including back-up services, advanced monitoring and Disaster Recovery Services.
