Public Cloud Provider Bluelock Opens Las Vegas Datacenter
Indianapolis, Indiana-based public cloud provider Bluelock has opened a new datacenter in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company, which provides virtual datacenters hosted in the public cloud leveraging VMware vCloud® technology, will meet midsize and large enterprise customer requirements for Bluelock Virtual Datacenters (VDCs) through the center.

The move comes as a response to increased demand for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) - an area of public cloud services analyst firm Gartner suggests will enjoy an annual growth rate of 41.7% from 2011 until 2016. Bluelock's new Tier 4 datacenter is SSAE Type II and SOC3 compliant and will cater to customers both within the United States and around the world. The new center will mean that the company's US customers will benefit from a stronger coast-to-coast and global presence.

Bluelock Virtual Datacenters are available through a VMware vCloud DirectorT-based self-service interface and take minutes to set up. Alternatively, they can be established through Bluelock's managed services support. Bluelock's customers can use templates to establish virtual machines (VMs) or upload their own VMs. The company's solution is fully scalable, allowing users to add and remove capacity as needed while only paying for the resources used. The solution is built on Open Virtualization Format (OVF) open standards with support for the VMware vCloud API.

"This top of the line, high-availability datacenter has abundant capacity to serve," explained Bluelock's Chief Technology Officer, Pat O'Day. "As more companies begin to compete in the global marketplace, access to technology resources is critical to efficiently deliver applications and services to a broad customer base."
