Globe Telecom is going beyond its Telco business by offering managed service solutions. With its intro of cloud services last year, Globe this year completes its cloud offering by introducing DIS – Dynamic Infrastructure Services. It is said to be the first ever high tech cloud solutions in the Philippines.
Globe in partnership with MorphLabs, a Filipino company based in the US launched their Dynamic Infrastructure Services. Available effective immediately, this cloud service will provide tools needed to create, maintain and support programs and applications in your own network.
Gone are the days that companies must invest to build their own infrastructure, acquire and build their own data centers, hire lots of manpower to handle the data center operations. Globe DIS is a managed services offered for companies to build their own private cloud.
Under the hood of this cloud services provided by MorphLabs are hardware with hyperscale computing, base config that includes 12 core servers, 5TB of storage on SSD which can house up to 30 virtual machines.
In the live demo conducted by Winston Damarillo, we were shown the typical server versus the hyperscale hardware. A simple query was made with 5 million search queries in the database, the legacy server did it within 412 ms while the server used for DIS made it in only 12 ms. A complex query resulted in a 425 ms time on the “old” infra while the hyperscale machine did it for 175 ms only.
So what is under the hood of this DIS? A Dell PowerEdge Z series servers, SSD storage by Samsung, and a switch by Arista.
Would be customers do not need to shell out huge cash from their CAPEX since this service utilizes an OPEX model. Globe DIS is for companies who require dynamic provisioning of a private and dedicated cloud infra solution without increasing IT expenditure. The service is subscribed on a monthly basis with both hardware and software components. Customers may opt to house the infra in their own data center or take the default setup which is hosted at Globe Telecoms data center. A 24/7 support is also assured by Globe.
