Q9 Networks Inc. Key Developments

Q9 Delivers Scalable Private Cloud Services with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform

Nutanix announced that Q9 has deployed the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform as the technology supporting its Private Cloud product offerings, complementing its core co-location operations. By offering a Nutanix-powered Dedicated Private Cloud solution, Q9 continues to enhance its existing offerings to provide application-focused infrastructure solutions for its clients. Leveraging the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud with the built-in AHV hypervisor, Q9 can now deliver a secure dedicated private cloud instance with a single interface to each customer. This can greatly speed up the customer journey from traditional dedicated environments to data center virtualization and also provides a full path to the cloud. Q9 can now deploy an entirely new Nutanix-based Dedicated Private Cloud cluster for customers within hours, a significant departure from the days or weeks it used to take to build more complex, dedicated VMware-based environments. Q9 clients across many industry verticals such as financial services and the natural resources sector continue to experience significant challenges managing the growth of on-premises and co-located infrastructure installations. They are seeking consumption-based solutions that provide more control, performance, availability, security and data residency. By providing a Dedicated Private Cloud offering with the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, Q9 enables an enterprise cloud environment that supports the types of controls customers require matched with a pay-per-use infrastructure elasticity model not typically found in private cloud services. Q9 customers can now virtualize traditional enterprise applications and build their cloud apps on top of Nutanix with AHV and leverage public cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. Nutanix enables Q9 to bring in disparate VMs from various hypervisors and manage them all within its private cloud. This feature provides flexibility for clients who are currently running VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V on-premises to take advantage of Q9’s private cloud for disaster recovery, creating an opportunity for Q9 as a service provider.

Q9 Networks Announces Product Expansion Including Wholesale Capacity

Q9 Networks announced an expansion to its product lineup including the entry into the Canadian wholesale co-location market with 18 megawatts of available capacity, and new Cloud and Managed Service offerings. Q9's first wholesale offering will be a 1 megawatt turnkey pod that is immediately available in Brampton Ontario, within the Greater Toronto Area.

MNP LLP Selects Q9 Networks to Consolidate and Improve It Infrastructure Reliability

Q9 Networks announced that it has been selected by MNP to provide a high-availability co-location solution that allows the company to consolidate its critical IT infrastructure from in-house facilities to a Q9 data centre in Calgary. Prior to Q9, MNP's IT infrastructure was replicated between two in-house data centres located in separate buildings in downtown Calgary.
