Global Net Access (GNAX) provides a range of colocation and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solutions with a special focus on healthcare. With demand for services growing, the GNAX team decided to build a multi-tenant cloud environment that could provide the flexibility and security that healthcare customers require while delivering the density to support efficient growth. GNAX chose Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series as the platform for the new environment. Built-in security capabilities help GNAX provide a multilayer approach to security without sacrificing performance. At the same time, the processors help GNAX maximize server density to support fast-growing environments while controlling power, cooling, and real estate costs.
“The fact that Intel and VMware have such a close relationship made it easy to select Intel Xeon processors,” explained Matt Mong, vice president of marketing for GNAX. “We knew we could go to market faster with our secure cloud offering, with fewer integration issues, by selecting the Intel platform.”
