PEER 1 Hosting Launches Enterprise-Grade Public Cloud

Cloud Connect--PEER 1 Hosting, the global IT hosting provider, today announced the international launch of its Mission Critical Cloud. This new enterprise-grade public cloud infrastructure solution provides best-in-class 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 Tier 3, twice recognized in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Tier 3’s cloud services are virtualized with VMware and designed to provide a public cloud computing environment that offers the security, performance and reliability that global enterprises often require.

Redundancy and enterprise-class security are built-in at every level of the customer solution, including the physical equipment, cloud resources and customer data. 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. Users can provision servers in minutes on the Mission Critical Cloud, providing immediate benefits to the enterprise. Users can also run detailed billing reports to easily “charge back” cloud usage across various departments.

“Mission Critical Cloud continues PEER 1 Hosting’s strategy to deliver choice of platform to its customers; this time, with an enterprise-grade public cloud,” said Carl Brooks, Internet infrastructure services analyst at 451 Group. “It’s an extension of PEER 1 Hosting and Tier 3’s existing partnership, and PEER 1 Hosting has accurately identified the customer base that will want features like enterprise-class security, native disaster recovery and virtual machine blueprinting.”

“Businesses want to accelerate their adoption of the public cloud, but many providers don’t deliver a complete solution that elegantly addresses common enterprise requirements,” said Mark Cravotta, senior vice president, Tier 3. “With PEER 1 Hosting’s Mission Critical Cloud, powered by Tier 3, enterprises now have an alternative that natively supports complex scenarios. Tier 3 strives to make global cloud deployments dramatically easier, and that's just what we've done in partnership with PEER 1 Hosting.”

“Many enterprises are searching for a more powerful, yet less complex public cloud solution,” said Robert Miggins, SVP, Business Development, 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. Mission Critical Cloud is also a perfect example of our commitment to providing customers with choice in the cloud and allowing them to focus on the possibilities of the Internet and not the problems.”

PEER 1 Hosting’s Mission Critical Cloud increases agility by enabling enterprises to focus on their core business areas and offload workloads to shift capital expenditure (CapEx) and operational expenditure (OpEx) quickly and easily. It drives additional ROI with a pay-as-you-go pricing model that gives enterprises complete visibility and control over costs.
