The traditional model of buying racks, equipment, network and building solutions is directly tied to the ability to control your IT infrastructure. It gives you the freedom to tailor the solution to meet your needs. But this freedom and control comes at a price. The two pillars of colocation have continued to rise in the past 5 years: cost of power and real estate. There is no sign of it stopping.

VDC automatically reduces power, space, cabling, and network overheads for the customer, dramatically shrinking implementation time to a fraction of its physical counterpart and eliminating any unexpected costs relating to physical deployments. With VDC, ITmanagers can commission and de-commision a functionally exact, virtual colocation facility. VDC provides the flexibility currently missing from this enterprise marketplace.

The Virtual Data Centrecreates a real data centre environment that gives you same freedom as before. Plus, because its Interoute, the resources are already attached to Europe’s most sophisticated IP network, something the old world of colocation could never do. Think of your VDC as you very own slice of Interoute’s software-defined data centre. Virtual Data Centre gives you complete control – you specify the total size of resources available and allocate from that to each machine, right down to the block level on disc or the thread of a CPU. Not only can you customise it, you can do it all in real time only using what you need when you need it.

Today, companies of every size need to adjust rapidly to a fluctuating global business ecosystem without overspending on resources and services. VDC was created with this unpredictable world in mind. Emerging from Interoute’s pan-European physical network, VDC is a costeffective Infrastructure as a Service that adapts as quickly as your business does.
