ATLANTA – October 27, 2011 – Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, today announced its participation in the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) and that its public and private cloud services have achieved VMware vCloud Powered status. As part of the VMware partner ecosystem, Internap delivers public and private cloud services that are VMware vCloud Powered, providing enterprise customers with the benefits of VMware virtualization in a completely managed cloud environment.
VMware’s vCloud initiative enables a powerful, easy-to-use set of cloud computing services that supports the largest set of existing applications, allowing Internap to drive down management and development costs and increase the flexibility of its cloud offerings. Customers can migrate and run virtualized applications on Internap’s cloud platforms immediately, with the same level of security, availability and performance that is expected in an on-premise VMware environment.
“The VMware vCloud Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape, “ said Don Schleicher, vice president, service providers, VMware. “We look forward to supporting Internap further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
