Responding to increasing demand for highly scalable and flexible managed IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solutions, QTS Realty Trust has announced the launch of QTS Managed Cloud, a highly-scalable and compliant enterprise-class cloud solution built to a customers’ specific business requirements.

QTS Managed Cloud enables enterprises to outsource cloud related tasks ranging from network, compute and storage to high-touch managed services with self service capabilities that enhance security, improve agility and reduce IT capital and operational expenditures.

“There is no question that cloud computing has long-term cost and efficiency benefits for businesses, but large and midsize enterprise IT managers are finding that managing and maintaining hybrid clouds can be very complex and costly if in-house expertise and resources are not already in place,” said Jon Greaves, Chief Innovation Officer – QTS. “The QTS approach integrates best-in-breed technology with process automation, operational best practices and a company-wide culture committed to serving as a valued extension of the customer’s IT team.”

With an emphasis on high-touch customer support, QTS Managed Cloud customers can tailor the service to fit their specific IT infrastructure and support requirements. QTS cloud engineers and support teams work closely with the customer to design, deploy and manage all or some of a customer’s hybrid cloud environment, allowing the IT staff to focus on its core business functions.

QTS is evolving a comprehensive suite of managed cloud services to meet the demands of customers, targeting the needs that can best be met through innovative solutions. With QTS’ Managed Cloud, customers can choose from a fully managed offering that includes managed network, operating system and backup and/or pick from an array of optional managed services including monitoring, network intrusion detection, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Anti-DDoS among others.
