QTS Announces Hosted Private Cloud Delivering Higher Levels of Performance, Automation and Visibility

Built upon QTS’ Hybrid Cloud Management Platform and the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, new offering fortifies QTS’ portfolio of hybrid IT solutions

Overland Park, Kan. (August 24, 2017) – Responding to increasing demand for highly automated outsourced cloud and hybrid IT solutions, QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), a leading provider of data center, cloud and managed hosting services, today announced QTS’ new Hosted Private Cloud (HPC), a purpose-built infrastructure-as-a-service platform (IaaS) designed to meet evolving hybrid IT needs of enterprise customers.

HPC, enabled by QTS’ Hybrid Cloud Management Platform (HCMP) and the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform, is a software-defined private cloud that runs advanced applications and workloads in a multi-cloud IT environment. Organizations benefit from significantly higher levels of automation, control and visibility into managed public and private cloud instances from a single console view.

The hyperconverged infrastructure is comprised of a software-defined solution that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources. The architecture enables cloudlike consumption-based infrastructure economics and flexibility without compromising performance, reliability, and availability. Additionally, the Nutanix platform offers ease of deployment, management and a rich set of integration APIs.

QTS HPC customers can easily add incremental blocks of infrastructure to the solution, eliminating the need for replacement or frequent upgrades. Customers benefit from predictable performance, robust security, seamless application mobility for all enterprise applications, and faster time-to-value for expanded environments.

“Enterprises are increasingly seeking to de-risk their cloud and Hybrid IT journey,” said Dan Bennewitz, Chief Operating Officer, Sales, Product and Marketing - QTS. “Hosted Private Cloud is QTS’ latest cloud offering and a key component of what is now the industry's broadest and most advanced set of Hybrid IT solutions.”

QTS’ HPC features:

• Security and Compliance – Enhanced, comprehensive security from server to endpoint, as a result of dedicated physically isolated network, compute and storage assets.
• Performance – Resources dedicated to the customer’s business, resulting in higher levels of automation.
• Customization – Optimize cloud resources to best suit enterprises’ unique environment and needs.
• Agility – Provides users with on-demand, self-service access to infrastructure, enabling faster service delivery of features.
• Cost savings – More efficient cloud resource management via enterprise cloud architecture and QTS HCMP.

“QTS is an early adopter in delivering an enterprise hosted private cloud solution built on and leveraging the benefits of Nutanix’s hyperconverged architecture,” said Dave Gwyn, Vice President, Americas East & Latin America, Nutanix. “We look forward to working with QTS as a trusted partner as they continue to expand as a leader in hybrid IT services and solution delivery.”
