"We envisioned our Dynamic Datacenter Services (dds) model eight years ago and have researched, developed, tested and deployed thousands of virtual servers in various service models before arriving at this moment today. I am pleased to announce the ddsCloud Enterprise, which is fully virtualized network, storage and compute capacity in an on demand model. The combination of ddsCloud Enterprise built on GigaCenter cloud-ready infrastructure is truly a break through in performance, scalability and reliability", said Tim Dufour, president and CEO of RackForce."
