Frisco, Texas – (The Hosting News) – April 27, 2007 – Self-managed, dedicated server products and services firm, Layered Technologies’ on-demand GridLayer Virtual Private Data Center (TGL-VPD), will provide an advanced, enterprise grade hosting solution, for Web 2.0 start up, Mixsic.com.
The Silver Layer service, was chosen to help Mixsic.com build out its infrastructure. Jordi Miro Bruix, CTO of Mixsic.com remarked, ”We are a group of senior IT people who came together with a high concept of building a place for musicians and fans to create music videos on line and share them in a social networking environment. We recognized that we had to invest our time and money in the design and functionality of our site and not its infrastructure. With Layered Technologies, We can grow our infrastructure simply by asking for it. We are happy with the decision we made.”
According to the company, running applications on a TGL-VPD is actually far simpler than using traditional hardware because there’s never any hardware to deploy, configure or maintain. The TGL-VPD solution utilizes AppLogic so that users can package an entire N-tier application or service into a logical entity and manage it as a single system. To make this possible, AppLogic captures and operates on the logical structure of the application. This approach also makes it very easy and quick to assemble, deploy, monitor, control and troubleshoot applications visually in a browser.
Todd Abrams, President of Layered Technologies remarked, ”Companies like Mixsic.com, who use TGL-VPD are better simply better equipped to play in the Web2.0 space. They will attract the investment they need because they can concentrate on being nimble, staying ahead of competitors and building dynamic social networks. Managing infrastructure comfortably becomes a lower priority background issue.”
Mixsic.com is being developed as a destination for musicians and fans, from all over the world, to create music videos on line and share them in a social networking environment, so that bands and the music industry may promote music in a new way.
