Moving to the Cloud is Easy with dinCloud

By Mae Kowalke

Many years ago, the dream of moving much of IT away from the enterprise and into a server farm on the Internet sounded like science fiction, or a bad idea at best.

Oh how times have changed.

The cloud is no longer a bleeding edge business solution for tech visionaries; it is quickly becoming a business necessity for firms of all sizes.

That’s where dinCloud enters the game. dinCloud is a cloud transformation company that helps organizations rapidly migrate their IT infrastructure to the cloud to embrace this new, lasting computer trend.

“We assist resellers and end users in transforming their IT infrastructure into a cloud solution,” Joseph Barnas told MSPToday at ITEXPO Miami, director of channel sales for dinCloud. “We basically bring that into our cloud and provide that on a monthly, subscription basis.”

dinCloud basically has four product areas: hosted virtual desktops, hosted servers, hosted storage for disaster recover/business continuity and its orchestration platform, dinManage.

Its hosted virtual desktops are run from a private virtual data center and allow employees or contractors to login from a laptop, desktop, iPad or Android device and have access to the same workspace regardless of what device they are using, according to the company. The hosted virtual desktop is in the hands of the firm using the service, and virtual desktops can be easily added, changed or managed in real-time.

With dinServer, businesses can quickly roll out a virtual private data center. Customers have an encapsulated environment with their own firewall, private virtual servers, private virtual network and private storage that is powered by NetApp.

With its storage and disaster recovery service, dinCloud makes implementing a comprehensive disaster recovery solution easy and affordable. Subscription-based, flat-rate pricing turns capex into opex, with no long-term commitment, according to the company. Businesses only pay for the resources they use.

“And the fourth piece, which is really kind of the glue that holds it together, is a product we call dinManage,” explained Barnas. “Dinmanage is basically an orchestration platform that allows an end-user or a reseller to have a single pane of glass view into their entire network, and provision deeper as well as view their servers, desktops and infrastructure and security assets, etc.”

The cloud is no science fiction at this point, and dinCloud is helping businesses move into the future—and do it quickly and easily without headaches.
