Zenith Infotech Unveils TigerCloud
Zenith Infotech announced the launch of its new product TigerCloud which is primarily aimed at mid-size organisations. TigerCloud is a high performance private cloud product that combines server, storage and network virtualization technology and allows customers to build and have their own sophisticated private clouds at costs lower than public clouds. Based on Intel® Xeon® E3 processor family, TigerCloud is a three-in-one product, combining private cloud, business continuity & backup as well as scale out iSCSI storage.
As per IDC*, though cost continues to be an important variable constraining technology adoption, small and medium businesses (SMBs) are also exhibiting a perceptible desire for customized solutions and products that cater to their unique requirements. IT spending in SMB will reach record levels in 2012 and as such this market presents huge opportunities. The growing role of "social, mobile, and virtual" will drive major SMB investments in Cloud.
Zenith Infotech’s TigerCloud costs 70% less than similar converged infrastructure products from the major multinationals. Based on Intel® Xeon® E3 processor family, Intel® DBS1200BTS board and Intel® 320 series SSDs, TigerCloud is a high performance system and is built around Microsoft’s Hyper-V technology. Zenith Infotech has invested over Rs.200 crore on R&D for its private cloud products.
