Making a true hybrid cloud solution

cloud_USP_controlHere at LeaseWeb we are always open to coming up with new solutions to technical challenges and this is where the pre-sales department comes in. My role as pre-sales engineer is to get a clear understanding of what a customer really wants to achieve and find a suitable solution with the available IT resources.

These days we have a lot of customers with many different kinds of workloads, most of which are perfectly suitable for a scalable and flexible Cloud environment. But let’s be honest, you can’t ‘cloudify’ everything (yet); some customers
have specific demands in terms of unique hardware or workloads
that run into problems when you try to virtualize them.

Huge traffic increase for all virtual server packages

PrivateNetwork_2_ScaleVirtual servers are a cost-effective alternative to bare metal servers. They function like a bare metal server, but run on a flexible virtualization layer. LeaseWeb’s virtual servers suit all businesses, from small to medium workloads and offer a reliable, highly scalable infrastructure with full redundancy and fast network-attached storage.

Since data traffic will not stop growing any time soon and there never seems to be enough bandwidth, LeaseWeb has some good news for new and existing cloud customers: we are increasing all our data traffic packages for cloud by four to twenty (!) times: to 4000 GB (Small) for the Server Pack S, 6000 GB (Medium) for the Server Pack M, 8000 GB (Large) for the Server Pack L and 10.000 GB (Extra Large) for the Server Pack XL.

Why we don’t want satisfied customers

LeaseWeb improves continually to meet your expectations

Listening to your customer is a key driver to success, as industry leaders show. The voice of the customer is articulated in an ongoing dialogue. When customers share their feedback, they expect you to listen, act and inform about the enhancements you have been making and are working on. And right they are. But even when the customer is satisfied, that is not good enough. Only when the customer’s expectations are met or exceeded, a satisfied customer can turn into a loyal customer.

The LeaseWeb Tech Summit 2015: “The more tech the better”

LeaseWeb Tech Summit 2015 Undercurrent Amsterdam / Rebel Shots fotografieThe second annual LeaseWeb Tech Summit took place in Amsterdam on 4 June attracting over 200 participants. More than a dozen speakers from a wide range of international companies gave a series of presentations on the theme of “Automate. Build. Secure.´ Kicking off the day at The Undercurrent venue on the banks of the river IJ in Amsterdam, Netherlands, LeaseWeb’s Innovation Director Laurens Rosenthal told the mainly developer and DevOps audience that the event was a chance to get under the hood of the internet and that “the more technical the presentations, the better”. He was right.

Automate. Build. Secure.

On the “Automation” theme, Marc van Eijk boldly stated that “Microsoft is cool again” going on to describe the benefits of Azure Resource Manager and his vision of how the hybrid cloud of the future will look. Job Snijders of NTT talked about his company’s use of SDN and some of the lessons learned from using automated control while Paul de Raaij explained how Coolblue develops its business critical software in-house using the principle of “continuous integration”.

Network economics: more bandwidth for your buck

Balancing the end-user experience of LeaseWeb hosted services and network economics

NetworkMap2015_LSW_Web740

At LeaseWeb Network, we manage and support the networks and traffic of the various LeaseWeb services companies around the world. We also support the advanced networking needs of their customers and protect them from security threats.

To ensure an optimized end-user experience for LeaseWeb hosted services, we run our own global Internet backbone – establishing direct connectivity (peering) with eyeball networks in 58 PoPs in Europe, the US and Asia – and we have connectivity (IP Transit) to virtually all major Tier 1 Internet backbones in any of the LeaseWeb data centers. Our total network capacity is 5 Tbps – compared to actual traffic levels of about 2.5 Tbps in the first quarter of 2015. This combination of peering and multiple Transit providers gives us a lot of flexibility and peak capacity to reach eyeball networks. So how do we manage this global network?

Besides speakers from LeaseWeb, there are also (international) experts from companies like Docker, Sendgrid, Cisco Systems, PowerDNS, NTT Networks, Coolblue and Booking.com.
