What is vGRID?

Cloud computing has become an important tool for IT managers in controlling the cost and complexity of business-critical applications and data. Cloud computing is compelling to enterprises because it allows them to consolidate resources, provision services more quickly, and even rationalise costs more effectively with new business models.

As virtualisation is now a critical component to an overall IT strategy, it is important to choose the right vendor. vGRID uses VMware for server infrastructure because it is the leading business virtualisation infrastructure provider, Citrix as the industry leader in virtualised desktop services, and HP 3PAR StoreServ as the world leader in high performance SAN technology, offering the most trusted and reliable platform for building our cloud platforms.

vGRID delivers industry-leading performance, increased flexibility, and benefit from high availability enterprise infrastructure and platforms.
