IT World: Savvis opens doors to Canada-based public cloud


(June 12, 2012) Following calls for a public cloud hosted on this side of border, Savvis Inc. on Tuesday announced the availability of its Symphony VPDC (virtual private data centre) in Canada.

Symphony is part of a class of public clouds that provide additional layers of data security. They are often integrated closely with private clouds or on-premise infrastructure. Dan Patton, general manager of cloud services at Savvis, describes it as a “container” with three tiers of architecture, and security features and firewalls behind each tier.

“From the customer’s experience, it’s like having your own data centre,” he said, adding that Savvis is focused on providing flexibility for customers with different IT environments. “We are very much about hybrid solutions and I think customers are right in expecting that from their service provider.”
