Frisco, Texas – (The Hosting News) – December 8, 2006 – Self-managed, dedicated server platforms and services firm, Layered Technologies, Inc., has unveiled the release of its first 32 node grid-server network called “The Grid Layer” (TGL).
According to the company,
benefits of TGL include rapid deployment of utility based services and platforms with scalable CPU, memory and storage. The TGL system allows administrators to design, edit, configure, and control multi-tier applications using the intuitive web based drag and drop editor.
Todd Abrams, President of Layered Technologies explained, ”Grid-based solutions empower administrators with basically the ease of flipping a light switch in order to plan, build, migrate and deploy entire internet based infrastructures.”
In addition, applications running on the TGL can scale from 1 to 32 servers without any code changes. Plus, in the case of a down hardware node, TGL will re-deploy the application and IP resources to the next available node to allow for quick recovery with no human intervention. On TGL, clients handle their web based customers through CPanel or DirectAdmin, just like on dedicated servers.
Mr. Abrams continued, ”Think of TGL being like an Electric Power Utility Company where each user pays for the electricity they consume. However, with TGL, customers pay for the on-demand CPU, network, server and storage capacity utilized. Plus, TGL provides clients ultimately with more flexible hosting options. For customers wanting more than a traditional dedicated server, they will be able to purchase the specific amount in virtual nodes on the grid.”
Jeremy Suo-Anttila, Chief Technology Officer of Layered Technologies added, ”Unlike other grid service providers, TGL allows our clients to use the popular control panels available today. We plan on porting every major control panel and open source application on to the TGL platform.”
The Grid Layer is one part of LT’s robust arsenal of value added solutions that empower our customers and value added resellers (VARs).
