Quantix invest in new data centre to enhance Cloud services infrastructure


Quantix has developed the leading, UK based, Cloud platform for delivering Oracle

Quantix, the specialist in supporting Oracle applications, has just opened a new £500,000 virtualised data centre - bringing together cloud computing and Oracle expertise for the first time in the UK.

Using this data centre, Quantix is able to provide a platform offering high quality compute power, storage, database and application provisioning as well as an extremely cost effective disaster recovery service with 99.999% SLA’s.

Dick Salmon, Managing Director of Quantix, says “It's a flexible, scalable and cost effective solution which is aimed at securing our customers' applications and data, and is uniquely optimised for Oracle users – something we believe is not available anywhere else in the UK.”

Quantix will use the datacentre to offer a number of ‘on-demand’ services such as, test and development capacity for both new applications and migrations, highly elastic and scalable storage provisioning with burst out capabilities, Oracloud™ - an Oracle platform for rent and computing capacity on demand. Customers will benefit from increased flexibility in the use of computing resources, as well as from Quantix' expert Oracle support which they have been delivering to more than 200 clients for over a decade.

It also offers a cloud-based disaster recovery solution – Rapid Recovery - starting at just £30 per day, using the cloud and virtualisation techniques to effectively ‘do away with’ the need for tape backs, forever. Quantix intends to target both end users and ISVs with its new services and already has a pipeline of prospects totalling over £1.5m.

Quantix uses tried and tested third party technology from Juniper, Double Take, Net App, VMWare - as well as supporting Oracle and Microsoft software, for which Quantix is a Platinum Partner and Gold Partner respectively.

The data centre has been fully security audited and meets ISO 9001, ITIL and ISO:20000 standards. Quantix is able to offer customers a 99.999% SLA guarantee, and can fully manage its customers' systems from hardware to the application layer, including databases and middleware.

“Quantix has developed the leading, UK based, Cloud platform for delivering Oracle and 3rd party Applications and Databases to both corporate and public sector organisations and Independent Software Developers (ISV’s). If you are looking for a secure, robust, scalable and cost effective Private Cloud service to run Software as a Service (SaaS), extend your computing power, deliver more storage capacity or improve WAN speeds, then I recommend you talk to Oracle Platinum Partner, Quantix, asap. Their ability to consult on your migration plan and then support both the infrastructure and Oracle environment, long term, is second to none.”
