Las Vegas, Nevada – (The Hosting News) – June 21, 2007 – Self-managed, dedicated server products and services firm, Layered Technologies, Inc., along with grid computing and utility firm, 3Tera, will demonstrate what is reportedly the industry’s largest virtual private datacenter, designed for Web 2.0 and SaaS companies.
Featuring HP hardware and 3Tera’s AppLogic grid operating system, the virtual private data center allows 460 processors, 920GB RAM, and 47 terabytes of storage to be harnessed for application deployment and operation with just a browser. Web 2.0 and SaaS companies can now easily afford to scale capacity as their business grows. Layered Technologies and 3Tera will showcase this high-powered solution at LT PACT in Las Vegas and will provide a live online demonstration Wednesday, June 27 at 9am PDT, 12 EDT.
A Virtual Private Datacenter is the utility computing solution for operating SaaS and Web 2.0 applications. It eliminates the need for datacenter co-location, private racks and managed hosting services by enabling users to assemble, deploy, monitor and manage all their infrastructure and applications using only a browser.
Todd Abrams, COO of Layered Technologies remarked, ”Interest in Virtual Private Data Centers has been tremendous, as Web 2.0 and SaaS organizations face difficulties scaling when the demand for their service increases. Making a grid of that size available to them today, on-demand, demonstrates that utility computing is ready for prime time.”
Vlad Miloushev, President and CEO of 3Tera remarked, ”Many people believe the Internet is a game of deep pockets and whoever builds the biggest datacenter holds all the cards. Working with Layered Technologies has enabled us to demonstrate how utility computing levels the playing field. With staggering power like this available to anyone, instantly and without long term commitments, innovative startups with popular applications can serve audiences of millions.”
The Virtual Private Datacenter will be showcased this week at the LT Pact event in Las Vegas, where attendees can experience the system firsthand and meet with company executives to discuss its benefits.
