The latest entrant into the Nigeria’s cloud service market, Garanntor, has said its offering affordable range of cloud services, reports ITRealms.
Disclosing this, the Managing Director of RackCentre, Mr. Ayotunde Coker in the company of the Head, Marketing, Communications & Finance, Mr. Ejieke Maduka Ezeadigwu, said Garanntor was born to answer to the request of the clients that need a local cloud service that meet international standards at an affordable price.
Garanntor, he said, offers web hosting, virtual private servers, cloud servers, cloud backup disaster recovery content delivery network, colocation and electronic mail (email) hosting.
The company infrastructure services, he said, has been planned to start with the prerogative of offering servers able to give the best performance.
“In order to remain faithful to this goal, we turned upside down the principle that all the other providers adopt,” he said, stressing that this principle made Garanntor to start from the performance they wanted to offer and then plan the architecture to fit these demands.
Garanntor, he said, runs on OnApps complete infrastructure management software platform with Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) on Hypervisor Level.
He explained that OnApp is an end-to-end solution for private, public and hybride cloud management, with multi-HV, multi-location and multi-cloud support; automation for a huge range of virtual and dedicated applicances; a complete set of orchestration and go-to market tools as well as the industry’s most intuitive, customizable admin and end-user portal.
“We host on reliable and high-performance supermicro blade servers with dual 20 core Intel Xeon E5-2630 v4 Central Processing Units (CPUs),” he said, which is made up of 2.2 Gega Hertz cum 25 Mega Bytes Cache, therefore offering fast storage using both Solid State Drive (SSD) and Hard Disk Drives (HDD).
Further, he said that Garanntor comes to town with storage based on OnApp Integrated Storage which is a high-performance distributed SAN built into the OnApp cloud platform, which gives customers fast, resilient and scalable storage for your cloud, without having to compromise performance with a software Storage Area Network (SAN).
On the security, he assured that every Garanntor server is protected by a Front End and a Back End firewall which could be excluded by associating the public Internet Protocol (IP) address directly to the server or to clients own firewall.
Specifically on pricing model, he said, Garanntor has resolved to offer recurring fixed price which is a widespread model, emphasizing that this affords clients to purchase a plan that consists in the allocation of an instance such as a cloud server that has constant resources through time and a fixed price, thus recurring fixed price plans have a duration of at least a month circle.
