No “hidden costs” – you pay for what you get
JAPAN – 5 August 2014 – Tsukaeru.net today announced the use of Parallels Automation Cloud Infrastructure to update its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) business offering in Japan, providing affordable, flexible and secure cloud computing to customers.
Available as a module of Parallels Automation, Parallels Automation for Cloud Infrastructure is a comprehensive set of services which enables Tsukaeru.net to move their customers easily and cost-effectively to the cloud. These services include virtualization, automated operations and billing, customer self-service, and an online store.
“At Tsukaeru.net, our cloud offerings have zero hidden costs. You pay for what you use, no more,” said Jason Frisch, CEO of Tsukaeru.net. “Packaged plans from other subscribers may mean that you end up buying functionality that you don't need to achieve the desired performance, and thus may be significantly more expensive than what we offer.”
Jason continued: “The demand for IaaS services has continued to grow aggressively amongst businesses in Japan, especially among the small and medium companies which lack the in-house technical capability and financial resources to build, operate and maintain their own compute infrastructure.”
IaaS is a cost-effective approach for small and medium businesses, as it frees them from the burden of maintaining their own servers, and they only pay for what they use. The Japanese market is a very competitive one, and cost-effectiveness is a key element to thriving in the IaaS business environment.
Frisch added that most of these companies would prefer to concentrate their own limited resources on service development and marketing than worry about day-to-day running and maintenance.
“As a leading hosting service provider in Japan, Tsukaeru.net understands the challenging business and operational environment in the region and has developed purpose-built IaaS offerings to support businesses that operate under extreme competitive pressures,” said Pavel Ershov, Vice President, Service Provider Business, Parallels Asia Pacific and Japan. “Their IaaS portfolio is designed to deliver fast, reliable and secure compute resources for businesses no matter the size and business model. By partnering with Parallels, they’re able to deliver highly elastic and very cost-effective solutions that enable these companies to focus on their business without thinking about their technology needs.”
Frisch said, “We continue to face advanced challenges in this fiercely competitive business but our strategic partnership in Parallels has enabled us to move one step ahead of the competition. By integrating Parallels expertise in automation and secure containerized technologies, we’re able to offer solutions that offer high degree of automation and control to our customers quickly and efficiently.”
