“IDC predicts that worldwide spending on professional services related to building or implementing cloud services revenue will grow 44% over 5 years, reaching $16.7B in 2015. This growth rate is 10x faster than that of the overall IT services market during the same time period”

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Cloud infrastructure can enable multiple teams, organizations and business units to securely consume isolated resources from a common, scalable, and shared infrastructure.  Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a hosting model in which  organizations outsource the equipment used to support operations ( including storage, hardware, servers and networking components).

BoxFabric owns the extensive infrastructure equipment, and is responsible for housing, running and maintaining it.  Clients can  pay on a per-use or committed basis.  In following this approach, and working with BoxFabric as your partner, you can focus on your core business objectives, while still operating full suite of hosting services for your customers.

 

BoxFabric vCloud On-Demand

Pay only for the capacity used. Customers can add capacity through our vCloud director control panel for peak times, then scale back when peak capacity is no longer required. There are no long term commitments for on-demand server rentals.

Committed server rentals are locked in providing a lower cost per server resource and predictable monthly cost.
