LightEdge upgrades enterprise cloud offering for multi-cloud deployments

Cloud and colocation provider LightEdge has announced the launch of its latest cloud offering to date, LightEdge Cloud.

The solution combines the scalability of the public cloud with security features typically associated with the private cloud, layering in the company’s connectivity suite, according to LightEdge.

Key features of LightEdge Cloud include end-to-end management by data center and cloud engineers, spend optimization, and capabilities to support enterprise workloads, including VMware-based, IBM-based, and container-based workloads. The company claims the solution is backed by a 100% uptime guarantee.

Speaking about the cloud offering, LightEdge CEO Jim Masterson, says: “The enterprise leaders we work with today want cloud management they can trust, with a high degree of visibility and security.

“We developed our LightEdge Cloud solution after many conversations with CIOs and IT leaders who need digital infrastructure that fuels their innovation and modernization instead of inhibiting it. And they need it rooted in security, observability, and compliance attestation, which is what LightEdge is known for. The LightEdge Cloud supports any enterprise workload with a solution that’s scalable, transparent, and – above all else – incredibly secure.”

The cloud offering also includes an integrated VMware Cloud Director portal for its customers to observe, monitor, and manage multi-cloud environments. The security features include microsegmentation, virtual firewall, built-in DDoS protection, and load balancing capabilities.

“So many enterprise leaders have had a complicated relationship with the cloud over the past few years,” says Dale Dawson, VP of product at LightEdge.

“We built the LightEdge Cloud to reverse that trend. The LightEdge Cloud offers the same benefits of any public cloud, but at a more cost-effective and transparent price point, with a full team of cloud experts ready to jump in as needed. In short, we serve as an extension of your in-house IT team without breaking the bank, simplifying your cloud migration and management.”

The company notes that LightEdge Cloud aims to enable innovation by delivering enterprise workloads, supported by cloud infrastructure and management solutions from VMware and Dell Technologies.
