Peer 1 launches public cloud offering

Peer 1 Hosting has launched its Mission Critical Cloud, a new enterprise-grade public cloud infrastructure solution providing security, built-in disaster recovery and sophisticated cloud management functions that automate day-to-day IT activities.

Powering PEER 1 Hosting’s Mission Critical Cloud is Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider Tier 3 which offers virtualized services for the public cloud with VMware.

Redundancy and enterprise-class security are built-in at every level of the customer solution, including the physical equipment, cloud resources and customer data, according to Peer 1 Hosting.

It said an extensive permissions system ensures only authorized users can access and alter systems, both at the group and individual VM level. Mission Critical Cloud also enables enterprises to meet data sovereignty needs by choosing the specific data center location within Canada, the UK and Germany to deploy their virtual servers.

Mission Critical Cloud will also be available in May in the US through Tier 3’s Federated data centers in Chicago, New York and Seattle.

Designed as a self-service platform, Mission Critical Cloud allows IT administrators to remain in complete control of their virtual servers through robust cloud management capabilities, including an easy-to-use admin console and the ability to arrange and manage virtual machines in logical server groups.

In addition, Blueprints, a cloud orchestration feature, automate the deployment of complex cloud environments, saving time and money, Peer 1 Hosting said.

Users can provision servers in minutes on the Mission Critical Cloud and can run detailed billing reports to easily ‘charge back’ cloud usage across various departments.

“Many enterprises are searching for a more powerful, yet less complex public cloud solution,” said Robert Miggins, SVP of business development at PEER 1 Hosting.

“Mission Critical Cloud addresses that need with a complete enterprise-grade cloud platform that eliminates concerns typically associated with public cloud usage and instead introduces them to the benefits of the public cloud - from increased ROI to reduced complexity and operational costs.“

    Wed, 15 Jul 2015 10:00:00
