Check Out VPLS’s VDI Services!

See how your company can benefit with our VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) services offered here at VPLS.  VDI combines the advantages of Cloud Hosting with the security and management tools that IT administrators value such as streamlined application deployment as well as reduced hardware and labor costs usually spent on  maintaining traditional workstations.  In keeping up with the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) generation, our services will enable users to access their Virtual Desktops using their choice of PCs, Macs, tablets, or phones.  Users can easily switch between operating environments, which ultimately eliminates the need to upgrade your workstation ever again. Also, think of us the next time one of your computers malfunctions because with VDI, you will be able to access all of your data and applications at any other workstation.  

VPLS offers two types of VDI services in the form of On-Premise VDI and Cloud Hosted VDI commonly known as Desktop as a Service (DaaS). Our deployment of DaaS is however unique from other service providers in that we deploy the same technology as an On-Premise Solution in a Private Cloud environment dedicated for the Customer. This increases the security for our Cloud Hosted VDI deployments and allows IT administrators greater control and visibility.  In addition to that, when you opt to purchase Thin Clients or Zero Clients, there will no longer be a need to upgrade all of your office’s individual workstations thanks to its longer lifespan that does not require a spinning disk unlike other traditional work stations, so contact VPLS and we can hook you up, literally, with VDI services today!

A Baker’s Dozen, 2015 Edition

Share Button

Every year, The Dyn Research Report releases their annual “Baker’s Dozen” edition that lists the top 13 global internet providers.  This is done based on their critical insight by what each provider’s statistics reflect. VPLS works directly with 6 out of 13 of these on their list: Level3, China Telecom, PCCW, Hurricane Electric, Tata, and Cogent.

According to the 2015 DYN Research Report, because of Level 3’s decision to integrate Global Crossing’s old network into AS3356, which was referred to as a “global colossus” back in 2011, it was able to acquire new customers based on  its rising AS-oriented  score.  Level 3’s growth increase by almost 10% was due to its extensive customer base which includes China Mobile, Vietnam’s Viettel, and Orange Egypt (Mobinil), formerly LINKdotNET.  It has been said that “the next five global providers would have to merge to rival the new Level 3’s score.”  Recently, however, TelaSonera outranked Level 3 because of Level 3’s loss of customers that consist of Global Cloud Xchange (a subsidary of Reliance Communications), Taiwan’s Digital United, and Turk Telekom, who, among others, moved to NTT.

China Telecom’s unpredictable rankings are caused by its incestuous routing it has with local competitors.  Other variables that affected China Telecom’s score was its fundamental changes relative to transited prefixes from its competitor, China Unicorn.  On the other hand, they are looking to target the South African and Brazilian markets.

Hurricane Electric was consistent with its steady growth throughout 2015; Tata is number 6 on the list who proved to be a big winner due it transiting prefixes from Canada’s Telus; and finally Cogent beat out GTT for the number four spot.

Being recognized on the yearly Dyn Research Report is a big deal because the methodology that they use to determine each ranking is by how it compares to their own high-performing authoritative DNS network that uses strategically placed sites and  a carefully engineered anycast that provides the ability to monitor the capabilities of the servers all over the world.  Ultimately, the purpose of the “Baker’s Dozen” report is to show consumers who performs best on a global scale.

Are you looking for a Disaster Recovery Solution?

Are most companies prepared in the case of a natural disaster? Will they be able to fail-over to their most critical applications to another site with full orchestration and application consistency? As a massive El Niño warming builds near the Pacific Ocean, scientist are predicting it could be the strongest ever. The Pacific Ocean is now hotter than recorded in at least 25 years, surpassing the temperatures during the record 1997 El Niño. El Niño is a weather phenomenon involving a section of the Pacific Ocean west of Peru that warms up, causing alterations in the atmosphere that can cause dramatic changes in weather patterns globally. At any point in time wether it be human error, hardware failure, earthquakes, floods, fires, or power outages these disasters can threaten the livelihood of any organization.

In order to branch out and provide more options for our customers, VPLS has partnered with DuPont Fabros to offer hosting from our very first east coast data center. This expansion allows our customers to now choose if they would prefer their server’s location on the east or west coast of the United States. Location is key when trying to keep your data safe from natural disasters such as El Niño.

Our Ashburn, VA data center is one of the largest data centers in the United States, boasting 360,000 square feet. Of that square footage, 176,200 square feet is a raised floor area perfect for our server requirements.

VPLS offers off premise enterprise customers with Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions such as Cloud Backup Storage and offsite replication services. Many enterprises still use tape backup services with a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of over 72 hours. With VPLS Backup and Disaster Recovery Services the RTO can be reduced to 4 hours with almost unlimited Recovery Point Objective (RPO) as this is just dependent on the amount of storage you purchase. Whether you are a current VMware vSphere virtualization customer, Microsoft Hyper-V or just using physical dedicated servers, we have a solution that can meet your needs and budget. VPLS is your partner for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). Our extensive knowledge and expertise coupled with best in class technology allows us to replicate your VM’s to our data center and provide near seamless integration and access to your data in the event of a disaster. Achieve lower Recovery Time with VPLS Disaster Recovery as a Service powered by Veeam. We incorporate our backup technologies into an onsite appliance and replicate all the data to our data centers worldwide. Our consulting engineers will work with your team to discuss which applications are the most critical in ensuring the fastest recovery time and design a scalable and efficient Disaster Recovery solution.
