Clifton, New Jersey – (The Hosting News) – March 20, 2007 – Utility and grid computing solutions firm, 3Tera, Inc.’s AppLogic Utility Computing Platform, has been deployed by managed hosting and infrastructure outsourcing partner, DedicatedNOW, to support its Virtual Clustered Hosting.
Virtual Cluster is designed to allow small businesses to scale their online service quickly and effortlessly. DedicatedNOW’s Virtual Cluster is a managed hosting solution developed to facilitate scaling of online services.
Jay Silverglate, CEO of DedicatedNow noted, ”We’ve found that many smaller companies may lack the resources and manpower to deploy full scale managed clusters. Moreover, developing fully managed clusters may be cost prohibitive for these companies. Unlike traditional clustered hosting, our Virtual Clusters provide redundancy and reliability for our clients. They are deployed across enterprise class servers, using the AppLogic utility computing platform, which allows us to deploy, manage, optimize and scale the Virtual Cluster solution to accommodate customer demands for high availability and scalability.”
Bert Armijo, Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Product Management at 3tera added, ”In the Internet economy today the difference between being a successful growing company and a short-living business idea is the ability to scale and grow your online service as the demand grows.”
Lynn Theobald, Founder of strategicmentoring.com, a DedicatedNOW client remarked, ”With a solution like Dedicated Now’s Virtual Cluster, companies can now get their applications to market quickly and scale easily without the enormous capital and labor required to own and to operate IT infrastructure. We are pleased to work with DedicatedNOW because of their dedication to customer service and innovative business ideas. The Virtual Cluster solution is garnering attention from end users. With a standard clustered solution, increasing our computing power to keep up with demand was difficult, time consuming and ultimately left our staff overwhelmed. Virtual clustering would allow our staff to rapidly increase and distribute resources as our company grows. The solution just makes sense for companies, like mine, that anticipate rapid growth and the need for resources that go along with that growth.”
Availability DedicatedNOW’s Virtual Cluster solution will be available April 1 2008. The service starts at $299 per month and offers redundant dedicated processors and RAM for each account.
