NaviSite Named SVC 2014 Cloud Company of the Year
NaviSite takes home the top prize for its work with PMGC Technology Group Ltd. to deliver enterprise level services to small and mid-sized businesses
LONDON – 28 November, 2014 – NaviSite Europe Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of NaviSite, Inc., a Time Warner Cable company, today announced that it has been named Cloud Company of the Year by the Storage, Virtualization, Cloud (SVC) Awards, in partnership with PMGC.
The SVC Awards recognise the achievements of end-users, channel partners and vendors alike. NaviSite was recognised for its work with PMGC to deliver Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) technology to power PMGC’s SmartDesk virtual working environment. NaviCloud® DaaS is one of a suite of cloud offerings from NaviSite, which range from Enterprise class infrastructure for test and development and production environments, through to cloud-based storage, disaster recovery solutions and cloud-based virtualised desktops. NaviSite’s DaaS delivers a leading-edge alternative to traditional VDI and labour-intensive desktop support, providing a simple, secure, and complete desktop experience in a virtual environment. This cloud-based, on-demand, scalable, pay-as-you-use platform enables a seamless and secure transition to the Cloud from costly, potentially at-risk physical machines, safeguarding data while adding a new layer to organisational resilience.
By leveraging NaviSite’s DaaS solution together with customised mobility and consulting services, PMGC’s SmartDesk provides each user with their own Windows hosted desktop environment that can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection. This allows users to work from the office, on the road, at home or even when meeting a client, while business data remains safely stored at the secure data centre. Usually this type of offering would only be available to large scale enterprises, however combining the best in class cloud based DaaS technology from NaviSite, with the specialist expertise of PMGC extends the delivery of these high quality services to small and mid-sized businesses providing a new level of flexibility for their users and opening up the benefits of cloud to an increasingly demanding market segment.
The NaviSite DaaS solution ensures that PMGC can provide a seamless user experience, with end users working across multiple devices. Each user is provided with their own SmartDesk environment, giving them secure access to their files, data and business applications, from any Internet connected device. In this way organisations can fully support mobile working and remote users; they can easily provision new desktops to cater for seasonal peaks and can embrace the growing trend of BYOD, without compromising data security.
“It’s a great honour to be recognised by the SVC Awards for the work that we’ve done with PMGC,” said Sean McAvan, managing director, NaviSite Europe Ltd. “The way that PMGC is bringing to smaller and mid-sized organisations the secure and resilient offerings that are normally only available to enterprises is truly leveling the playing field for the largest business group in the UK, and we are proud to be associated with that initiative.”
“It’s important that our customers feel enabled by technology, and NaviSite’s DaaS solution provides a key piece of infrastructure that we need to deliver our solution to customers. They’ve not only delivered great technology, but their service is first-class,” said Jason Yeomans, chief executive officer, PMGC Technology Group. “We couldn’t be happier to see NaviSite recognised for the great work that they do.”
