Englewood, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – November 17, 2006 – Managed hosting and colocation companies, Engine Yard, I-Netu, NetVenture and VISI, have joined application traffic management company, Coyote Point Systems, Inc.’s Partner Program.
Coyote Point also introduced its partner-friendly branding, including a distinctive new ”paw print” logo, highly recognizable hardware bezel and other branded partner program elements.
Jack Irving, Vice President of Sales for Coyote Point Systems remarked, ”Coyote Point is extremely pleased to partner with leading managed hosting and colocation providers. Coyote Point provides an ideal product and business solution for managed hosting partners like Engine Yard, I-Netu, NetVenture and VISI whose customers demand optimized website performance and accelerated delivery of Internet applications.”
VISI, a Minnesota supplier of high-speed Internet connections, dedicated servers, web hosting and colocation, recently expanded their primary datacenter, which will soon be SAS 70 certified. SAS 70 reports, certifying that a hosting company meets or exceeds standards for controls over information technology, security and related processes, have become a valuable tool for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and other audit-related purposes.
Gary Elfert, Director of Sales for VISI added, ”Coyote Point’s Equalizer Series systems and partner program are essential components of VISI’s transition from a services to a solutions fous. We trust their load balancing products and the responsiveness of their sales and support team. As we receive sales leads through the Coyote Point Partner Program, we use the opportunity to get to know the customer’s network and best practices and ensure their network has the reliability, speed and high availability it needs to handle everyday traffic as well as the spike of an ‘Oprah’ moment.”
According to Engine Yard, it is the first Ruby on Rails rapid application deployment service that combines reliability, ease of use, and instant scalability. Engine Yard customers can run their Ruby on Rails applications on ”slices” of a high-availability virtual private cluster that can scale up or down on demand. With Coyote Point’s Equalizer Series server load balancing systems as the front-end device, Engine Yard’s customers enjoy non-stop operation and ability to respond to “flash crowds” that would otherwise overwhelm a typical small to mid-sized website infrastructure. Engine Yard’s ”slices” of its Gentoo Linux-based clusters are far more affordable than managed servers operated by typical hosting providers.
Tom Mornini, CTO of Engine Yard commented, ”Companies turn to Ruby on Rails for its speed of application development, then Engine Yard offers speed of deployment. We knew that Coyote Point’s load balancers would be a critical component of our high-availability Ruby on Rails clusters. Their systems enable us to deliver affordable reliability, redundancy, and the ability to distribute customer traffic across our multi-server environment. Our customers also want SSL encryption without loss of application performance, and Coyote Point lets us deliver that. What’s more, we enjoy additional revenue opportunities through the Coyote Point Partner Program.”
Mr. Irving continued, ”Coyote Point’s unsurpassed price/performance benefits, flexible configuration options, predictable real-world performance and consistency in all facets of our operations complement service providers’ requirements to deliver affordable, state-of-the-art solutions to small, mid-sized and enterprise-class customers. Our managed hosting and colocation partners provide a compelling alternative to customers that would otherwise have to pay a premium to equip and operate their own data centers with comparable levels of availability, performance and scalability.”
The Coyote Point Partner Program is supported by tools including a web-based Partner Resource Center that acts as a centralized mechanism to coordinate the activities of partners’ sales teams with internal Coyote Point sales and systems engineering, support and other resources. Additionally, the program features a Sales Engagement Program to drive business opportunities by leveraging the influence of Coyote Point partnerships and alliances. The program also includes co-marketing opportunities, case studies, demonstration systems and branded promotional items.
