StratoGen goes all in @ Kaseya Connect 2014!

The StratoGen team are gearing up for Kaseya Connect 2014, for what should be one of the best Connect events ever. With over 500 Kaseya peers, all under one famous Las Vegas roof, the conference kicks off on April 14th at the Mandalay Bay.

This is our first year attending as a Silver Partner and we are really excited about connecting with other members of the Kaseya community.

We host and manage Kaseya’s cloud infrastructure through VMware cloud technology, so sponsoring the event and tying in with this year’s theme, “Take Control of the Cloud” seemed a perfect fit. We would be keen to demonstrate how we help Kaseya benefit from a 500% increase in capacity and performance by simply switching to a VMware cloud infrastructure with StratoGen.

If you are attending, then make sure you come and say hello! We are located at Booth 10 and we have some cool prizes to give away. When you get your Kaseya Connect 2014, conference bag check inside for the StratoGen “Buck” $100 dollar bill, for your chance to win.

See you in Vegas.


StratoGen Malaysia is Go!

So you’ve probably seen the press release already – we’ve launched our vCloud platform in Malaysia.  Customer demand in the region is booming , and an Asian presence was the next logical step for StratoGen to augment our global reach.  StratoGen VMware hosting is now available in EMEA, USA and Asia, making us one of the few VMware vCloud Powered partners with true global reach.

This new facility is ideal for anyone experiencing network latency issues between USA or EMEA to the Asia Pac region.  It is also beneficial for Malaysian businesses who may have access to governement development funds, who need to host their infrastructure in country in order to qualify for these grants.

Our Malaysian vCloud platform is based in the Jaring datacenter in Technology Park Kuala Lumpur.   The platform is running the latest VMware vSphere 5.1 with vCloud Director 5.1, offering cutting edge cloud management features including VM Snapshots, Server Load Balancing and advanced vShield firewall tecghnology, all managed via the same vCloud Director login.

As with all StratoGen facilities, Jaring Kuala Lumpur is ISO27001 certified, ensuring the utlimate in security for customer data hosted in the facility.

The first customers are already up and running in the facility.  Any customers wishing to trial our Malaysian cloud can do so by visiting www.stratogen.net/trial and selecting the Asia region from the drop down menu.

We’re off to VMworld – What do we hope to learn?

So we’re off to San Francisco next week to attend the VMworld conference at the Moscone Center to hear all about the latest developments from VMware.

There seem to be a lot of exciting developments in the pipeline, and there are a few things we hope to be enlightened on while we’re there.

  • vCloud Director next major release 
    • When is it coming?
    • What features can we expect in GA?  We’re hoping to see:
      • Storage Tiering
      • Snapshot capability
      • More end user control of vShield Edge (load balanding configuration etc)
  • Site Recovery Manager – there have been rumours of integration between SRM and vCloud Director – we’re intrigued to find out more…
  • Project Octopus – much anticipated and discussed at last year’s VMworld – we want it, when can we have it?  Hopefully we’ll get an update and an idea of launch dates…
  • Have Bon Jovi still got it? You may ask ‘Did they ever have it?’ – They’re headlining the VMworld Party, so we’re going to find out!

Hopefully we’ll get the answers to these questions and more – we’ll post what we are allowed to next week!
