Small businesses with global ambitions will soon have a new cloud partner — at least wherever Vodafone has data centers.
Vodafone Total Cloud Flex is a virtual private cloud service that can be managed via a self-service portal, and directly integrated with on-premises infrastructure via VPN or MPLS.
Telecommunications operator Vodafone unveiled the service in Hanover, Germany, on Sunday, on the eve of the Cebit trade show.
The service is scheduled to go live by the end of June in Germany, Italy, the U.K. and Ireland. Other countries will follow, half a dozen of them in the third quarter, including the U.S. and either Hong Kong or Singapore, said Nadja Risse, Vodafone’s head of sales for cloud and hosting in central and southern Europe.
