Virgin Media Business and Savvis team up for cloud service

Posted on: November 11, 2011

  • Savvis has teamed up with Virgin Media Business to offer a pay-as-you-go cloud computing services for small and medium-sized enterprise customers in the UK.


  • The service will be carrier neutral, but premium service can be delivered using Virgin’s fiber-optic network which covers much of the country out of Savvis local data center operations.


  • Built on Savvis’s own cloud computing platform – Symphony VPDC (virtual private data center) – the Virtual Private Data Centre offering can allow companies to create their own virtual data center in a matter of hours with the same multi-tiered security and quality of service levels offered to Savvis cloud service customers.


  • Virgin said the new partnership will allow it to maximize use of its fiber-optic network during peak business hours. Its network, which Virgin said passes within 50 yards of 85% of UK businesses, has until now largely been used for consumer customers with peak hours of 6pm to 10pm.


  • Savvis, on the other hand, has largely catered to UK government and large business clients and already offers cloud computing as one of its hosted services.
