HyperGrid, the Enterprise Cloud-as-a-Service solutions provider, has announced the expansion of its partnerships, customer base and hypervisor support.
HyperGrid has revealed its partnership with Westin Building Exchange (WBX), one of the leading colocation, hosting and telecommunications interconnection facilities in the US as well as news about Tearfund, a UK-based Christian relief and development agency, that recently consolidated its IT infrastructure to a single private cloud platform with HyperCloud, saving almost £1 million for the agency. HyperCloud will be on display at VMworld 2017, showcasing HyperCloud's support for VMware vSphere.

"Our digitally connected world is currently undergoing a massive sea-change of content, connectivity, capacity and consumption. In order to better address this transformation, the Westin Building Exchange (WBX) is partnering with HyperGrid to deploy our CloudWest™ service offering," said Michael Boyle, Strategic Planning Director at WBX. "HyperGrid has been a real partner in this process helping us utilise the carrier-neutral interconnection points to Asian, European and North American network service providers, carriers, and internet service providers that are moving workloads to the cloud."
HyperCloud supports VMware vSphere
VMworld is VMware's premier thought leadership and education destination for cloud infrastructure and digital workspace technology professionals. At the conference, HyperGrid will be hosting technical demos showcasing the simplicity and ease-of-use of HyperCloud with VMware, along with theatre presentations running throughout the day providing overviews of use cases, customer case studies and joint solutions with key partners.
Tearfund realises almost £1 million in savings
Tearfund was ready to solve several IT issues including slow processing speed, high electricity consumption and IT staff resources when it began its search for an on-premises, cloud-based solution. The company then found HyperGrid. The HyperCloud platform was able to reduce processing time from 12 hours to just 20 minutes and also delivered close to £1 million of savings for the agency.
"As a charity, we often do not get the opportunity to adopt truly world-leading technology, but HyperGrid has given us that opportunity," said Stuart Hall, Infrastructure Lead at Tearfund. "I have worked in the IT sector for 25 years and this has been the easiest, smoothest project that I have ever managed. We have had fantastic support from HyperGrid throughout the process from the reassurance and the rigorous testing that we completed in the pre-sales period, to first-class support throughout the project, HyperGrid has met absolutely every requirement we set and we couldn't be happier with the solution."
