Aliso Viejo, California – (The Hosting News) – June 14, 2007 – Utility and grid computing solutions firm, 3Tera, Inc., has been selected by BT, in a multi-year deal, to use its AppLogic Operating System, to power the new utility computing services that it will offer.
3Tera’s AppLogic grid operating system is designed to eliminate the need for co-location, private racks and managed services by enabling the assembly, deployment and management of infrastructure and applications using only a browser and basic IT skills.
Kevin Nickels, Concept to Market Director for BT remarked, ”After reviewing numerous solutions and considering building a solution internally, we determined that 3Tera’s AppLogic is the solution best positioned to meet our immediate needs. AppLogic enables BT to deliver market leading on-demand computing services.”

They appreciate the need to stay on top of the utility computing market. By adopting AppLogic, BT will continue to keep its leadership in enabling major new operational capabilities.”
Andrew Schroepfer, Founder of Tier1 Research (a research group that tracks the competitive hosting, co-location, Internet services, and software-as-a-service markets for their subscribers) offered, ”BT has led the industry by aggressively investing billions of dollars a year to build their next generation network, powering the growth of new services such as VoIP and Software as a Service (SaaS). 3Tera has established themselves as a technology enabler in the utility computing space, and BT’s partnership with them should give them the ability to offer cutting edge services that are based around simplification, reusable capabilities and hosting of software-based services running as applications.”

The AppLogic grid operating system is a commercial platform designed specifically to enable true utility computing. The operating system converts hosted commodity servers into scalable grids on which users can visually operate, deploy and scale transactional Web applications without any modification of code. At the heart of AppLogic is 3Tera’s disposable infrastructure technology, which makes distributed web applications self-contained and portable – enabling them to run on any grid anywhere in the world. As a result, applications become completely separated from the hardware infrastructure traditionally needed to run them, allowing users to remotely manage their applications through a web browser, and provision resources as needed.
3Tera, Inc. provides grid and utility computing solutions designed to simplify the deployment, operation and scaling of online services. The company’s AppLogic grid operating system was developed to allow web hosting providers to offer true utility computing that enables anyone with a browser and basic IT skills to operate dozens of servers, and hundreds of online applications, without owning and operating hardware infrastructure. 3Tera is a privately-held company headquartered in Aliso Viejo, California with R and D facilities in Silicon Valley, Israel and Eastern Europe.
