CtrlS: Ensuring Flexibility, Customization, Compliance and Continuity with Infrastructure Services

CIO Vendor With the promise of scalability-on-demand and a pay-as-you-go pricing model, the major advantage that cloud IaaS services brings to the large organizations is higher business efficiencies at lower IT costs.

Enterprises are embracing the IaaS model because it delivers them agility, on-demand access to a much richer range of services at a lower cost. A study carried out by Gartner recently has revealed that the IaaS market will witness an unprecedented growth rate of 41.3 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). However, due to lack of governance and monitoring of cloud resources, IaaS presents myriad of challenges for both service providers and organizations.

With the volume of data generated by the cloud resources increasing each day, it has become crucial for the organizations to maintain data integrity, governance, compliance and security throughout the entire data lifecycle. Additionally, customers are plagued by the low service provisioning lead times with Infrastructure Services.

Addressing these challenges associated with IaaS, CtrlS, headquartered at Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh provides Compute Optimized, Memory Optimized, Storage and Optimized cloud computing platforms that impart enterprises and hosting providers complete flexibility, customization, compliance and continuity with cloud computing infrastructure. Sridhar Pinnapureddy, Founder & CEO at CtrlS states, “We help enterprise and customers with reduced service provisioning lead times, provide them the ability to customize, ensure compliance with international security standards and enhanced quality of operations”.

On the similar lines, we leverage Ctrl4C - a public cloud product that creates four copies in 4 different data centers in different zones and offers customization and easy data recovery. Ctrl4C has inbuilt features that are capable of providing disaster recovery services, managed services and easy scalability. “At present CtrlS is addressing the mid-market segment and positioned to address the unmet needs of end customers through focused engagement, discussions through Ctrl 4C”, adds Sridhar.
