Leverage The Most Popular Cloud Computing Model in Your Company

Cloud computing has changed the IT services delivery for good. Would it be a right fit for your organization?

With the ability to scale network, bandwidth, and storage on-demand, businesses like yours can better meet their customers’ demands. Whether you choose Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, the cloud will significantly improve your mission-critical operations.

Quick and affordable, phoenixNAP’s public cloud hosting is an ideal enterprise resource for instant IT deployments. Comparing the public and private cloud, the former allows for more significant savings. PhoenixNAP’s public cloud is priced by the hour to meet any unexpected or temporary needs. You can directly import your VMware virtual machines (VM) into the public cloud to seed your environment for quick deployments.

PhoenixNAP typically can deploy servers in less than 5 minutes. This gives you the flexibility to effectively plan for dynamic projects and large-scale business changes while keeping server management simple. This solution helps you:

  • Right-size your IT to your current needs and demands.
  • Take advantage of improved VM portability and quick cloud deployment options.
  • Import and export environments as you see fit.
  • Optimize your budget with hourly and monthly billing models.
  • Easily upgrade to more private cloud-based platforms.

PhoenixNAP lets you contract additional monthly services to support your cloud strategy and digital transformation. Take advantage of economies of scale to access on-demand cybersecurity services, DevOps tools or disaster recovery solutions. You can also easily export to phoenixNAP’s dedicated solutions such as Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC) or Managed Private Cloud (MPC). You can even build a custom hybrid cloud environment to stay abreast of any market changes and achieve your security and compliance goals.

Who is Public Cloud For

Public cloud will give you a competitive advantage if ‘right-sizing’ your IT quickly is a business driver in your organization. Do not let inadequate or rigid infrastructure affect your deployment timelines and mission-critical data. Choose phoenixNAP’s public cloud to seamlessly deliver your web and mobile applications. Complete your future projects successfully and on time while keeping control over your IT spending.

Public Cloud Plans and Pricing

With pricing plans starting at only $4.00 per month, phoenixNAP is able to offer the lowest price around for VMware vSphere public cloud. Our consumption-based pricing model means that you only pay for what you use. Quickly fire up a virtual machine and shut it down an hour later. PhoenixNAP will only bill you for the time it was provisioned. This means that when your VM is off, you will avoid paying for the CPU or RAM usage that other providers charge.
