"Provides the missing rung between self-hosted and shared cloud video conference deployment options, delivering scalable and secure enterprise-grade infrastructure without the burden of day-to-day management."
Pexip, a provider of enterprise video conferencing and collaboration solutions, has launched the Pexip Private Cloud; a new deployment option for its video conferencing platform.
Pexip says its private cloud, "Gives customers the ease and scalability of a shared cloud with the control, security and privacy of a self-hosted solution, mission critical to industries with strict regulatory compliance including finance, healthcare and government services. This is a unique offering in the market and not available on any other cloud-based video conferencing solution."
The new Pexip Private Cloud offering builds on Pexip’s existing range of flexible deployment options including customer self-hosted (on premises or cloud) to a full SaaS solution. Pexip anticipates that Pexip Private Cloud has the potential to significantly reduce typical sales cycles versus more traditional on-premise sales, as it eliminates a client’s requirement to procure, install, and operate their physical or virtual servers as well as manage capacity for scale.
Pexip states, "The increased volumes of remote working continue to put a stress on clients' traditional infrastructure and stringent privacy and security requirements leave others feeling handcuffed to on-premise solutions. At the same time, customers are looking for the possibility to turn on expanded video conferencing services the same day, not weeks down the road. The Pexip Private Cloud bridges the on-premise/public cloud conundrum by allowing organizations to add capacity in a location or extend locations from the moment it is set up from the dashboard. The new deployment offering will help clients accelerate their cloud migration by offering the robust security level required by large organizations combined with the rapid configuration and smart scaling required to suit bespoke organizational requirements."
The company states that beta customer trials show the new service can speed up time-to-deployment by a factor of 10X and reduce managed IT overheads by an estimated 60-80 per cent.
The Pexip Private Cloud will initially be hosted on the Google Cloud Platform, and extended to the Microsoft Azure Platform in 2021. For more information, see the product page.
