Customers are adopting a cloud strategy in their IT projects to benefit from the scalability and cost efficiencies of delivering IT services to business requirements. The Cloud is changing the IT delivery model to a service-based model, which operates more efficiently, resulting in enhanced responsiveness to business needs.
Cloud computing as the next generation of computing provides the following benefits:
Managed IT infrastructure and services as commodity services developed on a large-scale resource pool beyond standalone processors, storage, business applications and development platforms.
Billing or charging is based on actual consumption and “pay-as-you-go” economics, even for shorter contracts.
Scalability that caters to unforeseen business requirements in a timely manner
The ability to add or remove capacity in real-time on the basis of changing business needs.
Easy and user-friendly access, such as web-based interfaces, for the administration of your services and monitoring usage patterns.

AKAZA Virtual Data Centers are implemented in the AKAZA Cloud and are based on VMware and Citrix technology, which provides full compatibility with any virtualisation environment. The solution is built on open standards with OVF packaging for the transport of workloads and interoperability, with additional support provided as well.
Just as you would in your own data center, you can make these Virtual Data Center resources available to applications, business units and projects as needed without having to worry about physical capacity.
Build, Access and Move Your VDC from Anywhere Quickly. A Virtual Data Center contains public and private catalogues of AKAZA templates so you can build new virtual machines quickly, or upload VMs that are already running in your internal environment. You can also build virtual applications (vApps) within your Virtual Data Center. A vApp is used when you have an application that requires more than one VM, custom security and/or networking settings, custom startup parameters and want the application to be stored and provisioned from a catalogue.
AKAZA Cloud Storage provides fast and reliable storage for I/O-intensive applications. In order to meet your business requirements, you can select Standard or Enterprise Block Storage volumes, both of which are connected to Cloud Servers via our high-speed network. There is a constant need for storage in any enterprise, and day-by-day the need for storage continually increases. In fact, investment in storage is one of the major contributors to IT costs.
Backup is one of the most critical requirements in the IT industry. Once a backup of critical business data is taken, AKAZA Cloud Backup is in a position to ensure business continuity and restore the failed system. AKAZA Cloud Backup lets you quickly protect and restore important files.
