Access Northeast Announces Release of Parthenon Secure Cloud Dedicated Service – Small Business Trends

Marlborough, Massachusetts (PRESS RELEASE – April 10, 2011) – Access Northeast, one of the largest privately held data center managed services providers in New England, announced the release of its Parthenon Secure Cloud dedicated service. Access Northeast’s new Private Cloud products are designed to help alleviate security concerns for businesses who are wary of migrating important applications to the cloud, yet still desire the benefits of computing scalability, flexibility, cost-efficiency and maximum uptime. The Parthenon Secure Cloud is a comprehensive one-stop shop for critical corporate systems that can be built, provisioned and online within 45 days, powering an entire business at an affordable cost.

“Access Northeast is pleased to extend the performance and reliability of the Parthenon Cloud Hybrid Platform to dedicated customer infrastructure via our new Secure Private Cloud service,” said Rob Stephenson, CEO of Access Northeast. “We envision businesses of all sizes being able to capitalize by rapidly deploying internal and external IT applications in the comfort of a secure, hosted environment.”

This fully customized, dedicated service is built with industry-leading components from Dell, VMware, Fortinet, Radware and Cisco on Microsoft Windows and Red Hat Linux operating systems. Architected, deployed and managed by Access Northeast, Parthenon Secure Cloud’s origins are derived from nearly a decade of enterprise private VMware management expertise.

Three service levels are available right out of the box:

  • Secure Cloud – Cost-efficient, entry-level offering with five to fifty servers priced at an average cost of $400/virtual server.
  • Enterprise Secure Cloud – Powerful corporate infrastructure which is capable of serving thousands of end-users, scaling from a minimum of ten up to hundreds of virtual servers.
  • Custom Secure Cloud – Corporate environment built to client specifications with premium equipment that can manage an unlimited amount of servers upon demand.

Parthenon Enterprise Secure Cloud clients are allocated private colocation cabinet space with an ability to add additional customer-owned or Access Northeast managed equipment on demand. There are no shared resources — each client receives dedicated storage, computing and networking equipment. The Parthenon Secure Cloud design ensures the ultimate level of data integrity, which is ideal for compliancy requirements for both public and private corporations alike.
