Internet Initiative Japan subsidiary IIJ Global Solutions has announced the addition of “Virtual Platform VW Series (VW Series)” to their lineup of options.

The new service is available as part of the company’s cloud service offered in China, IIJ GIO China Service, which provides server environments that make full use of IIJ's years of expertise in operating the IIJ GIO Service in Japan.

IIJ has been providing the IIJ GIO China Service through its Shanghai-based Chinese subsidiary IIJ Global Solutions China since January 2013.

The new VW Series allows customers to  design and implement operating systems and applications on VMware virtualization platforms, enabling them to migrate various OS they may be using, including customized editions.

Thus the VW Series permits customers to build private cloud environments that work in combination with existing systems. This cloud service offers flexibility and availability and is suitable for enterprise use, including mission-critical systems, e-commerce, and software as a service (SaaS).

For this service lineup, IIJ Global Solutions China has formed a partnership with the Chinese data center provider, Shanghai Data Solution (SDS). SDS's data center operations have a customer base of more than 600 firms, consisting primarily of foreign-funded, finance-related, and other major enterprises.

Through this partnership, IIJ Global Solutions China will work with SDS to enhance its local sales and operational support structures.
