Newly launched IGNITE Cloud Projects® intelligently matches user requirements with top cloud providers for customized IaaS, DRaaS, SaaS, and UCaaS.
ENGLEWOOD, CO. JUNE 23, 2020 – Datacenters.com, the leading technology platform and marketplace for buyers and sellers of colocation, cloud services, and connectivity, has announced the official launch of Datacenters.com IGNITE Cloud Projects®. This revolutionary cloud RFP and project management platform helps Datacenters.com users streamline the planning, design, and procurement of custom, multi-cloud deployments of strategic solutions from top cloud providers globally.
Businesses of all sizes including large enterprises face significant challenges when it comes to building and scaling their cloud environments and IT infrastructure. This includes a lack of internal technical cloud expertise and resources, cloud security and data breach concerns, and skyrocketing IT costs due to usage and data sprawl. For most businesses, the answer is using multi-cloud deployments, hybrid cloud architecture, and professional and managed cloud services.
Datacenters.com IGNITE Cloud Projects® takes the guesswork out of configuring complex cloud deployments for IaaS, DRaaS, SaaS, UCaaS, and CCaaS solutions by intuitively guiding users through each step of the process from determining service requirements to selecting regions and providers. The IGNITE Cloud Project Platform® features intelligent matching with a proprietary, data-driven algorithm to make lightning-fast recommendations as to the best providers for each user-defined cloud project.
A major challenge for businesses undergoing digital transformation is visibility and collaboration in the vendor selection process. With IGNITE Cloud Projects®, users can save and edit their cloud projects, distribute digital cloud RFPs directly to providers, and invite team members to collaborate on projects and proposals. Datacenters.com users can also view and change the status of any project, compare cloud proposals, and communicate directly with providers in the user portal and project dashboard. Every new cloud project is assigned a Datacenters.com Concierge® to help facilitate and advance the process, answer questions, and provide technical support.
