Zen bolsters Cloud services with Nutanix partnership

We’re happy to announce that Zen is now partnering with Nutanix - the industry leading hyper-converged infrastructure provider - as part of our commitment to further developing our cloud services.

Zen Internet has become one of the first UK telecoms companies to deploy the latest Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform for delivery of public cloud services. The result is an immensely reliable, flexible and efficient next generation cloud solution for Zen’s rapidly expanding cloud services customer base. The state-of-the-art Nutanix platform allows Zen to offer its Zen Cloud customers the agility, economics and security of a private cloud platform utilising high performance hyper- converged infrastructure. Zen Cloud is currently growing its customer base by more than 200% every 12 months. “We needed to make this investment to increase storage, support our growth and support a range of new cloud offerings,” says Zen technical director Jon Bauer. “And more than that, this is another example of us refreshing our technology and setting up our business for the future.”

The new deployment means Zen Cloud customers will benefit from an even more robust, resilient and secure system, and enjoy extraordinary flexibility in usage and cost. The intelligent software from Nutanix monitors each customer’s needs and focuses resources accordingly. Infrastructure-as-a-service customers can take as much or as little space on Zen’s platform as they want at any given time, confident in the knowledge that they will only ever be charged for what they use. “This is great news for Zen Cloud customers, who will benefit from a truly responsive and cost-effective solution. At the same time, it is further evidence of the way Zen is transforming from a traditional ISP to a carrier. The Nutanix platform is further evidence of us investing in true carrier-grade infrastructure,” says Jon.
