Pay-As-You-Go public cloud hits NZ

ICONZ-Webvisions is now offering its public cloud without a contracted duration, in what is a first for the company in New Zealand.

ICONZ-Webvisions is now offering its public cloud without a contracted duration, in what is a first for the company in New Zealand.

According to the Auckland-based company, despite cloud computing offering processing power that is scale-able and flexible, the majority of Kiwi cloud providers still require customers to commit to a set term.

“Customers shouldn’t have to predict their computational needs, 12 months in advance," says Deidre Steyn, General Manager, Managed Hosting – Australia & New Zealand.

"That defeats the purpose of cloud migration. The industry’s moving to true pay-as-you-go pricing. This offer lets you plan a month in advance.”

Steyn says that overseas cloud service providers have offered true on-demand processing without fixed durations "for years", but overseas providers also bring issues worth considering.

"Data sovereignty and where your data is stored, can be legally problematic," Steyn explains.

"Depending on the amount of data to transfer, the distance and cost to reach overseas servers can be crippling. Data transfers are typically slower, with latency becoming an issue."

As a result, Steyn says using a local cloud provider enables faster data speeds, with local ISP's often charging less for nationwide data along with isolation from currency fluctuations.

“Our Pay-As-You-Go Cloud solution is a great product for those considering cloud migration," Steyn adds. "You effectively trial the cloud, without the commitment."

ICONZ-Webvision’s product is available on the public cloud, with hardware being shared across several customers.

Built on a cluster of 20+ blade servers, ICONZ-Webvisions then manage the provisioning of the cloud servers with the number of processors, RAM and total storage based upon pre-defined packages.
