Layered Technologies to Launch New Integrated Virtual Private Data Center Platform

Off-premise private cloud infrastructure offers unparalleled choice, security, services and customization

Layered Technologies on Ulitzer

PLANO, Texas - Jan. 11, 2010 - Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), a leading worldwide provider of on-demand IT infrastructure, has developed a new virtual private data center (VPDC) platform with levels of managed services, security and flexibility via a proprietary API that were previously unavailable in an integrated offering.  The new platform is a hybrid cloud computing infrastructure that gives customers a virtualized environment on dedicated servers within Layered Tech data centers, as well as levels of flexibility on how to securely access their VPDC, whether by dedicated lines, VPN or Internet.

Because Layered Tech's new VPDC offering is technology-agnostic, customers can choose the virtualization platform that best suits their needs, including 3Tera's AppLogic, VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V.  Layered Tech's automated server provisioning system will also enable enterprise customers to design, order and deploy a secure virtualized environment within an hour, instead of the weeks or months it can take to provision a similar solution within many companies' on-premise data centers.  And, Layered Tech's new VPDC platform provides a customer API, which makes more than 100 applications immediately available to the customer's developers; those developers then have access to the API for customizing additional applications of their choice.

"Layered Tech pioneered the VPDC, and as a result we have worked closely with enterprises of all sizes that have different business goals but share the same requirement for enterprise-class security, choice and flexibility from their cloud environments.  We can provide that with our hybrid approach, which gives customers dedicated, unshared resources in their off-premise cloud infrastructure rather than placing their data into purely public clouds," said Layered Tech COO and CIO Terrance Bush.  "We are excited to evolve the VPDC to its next phase, forming a broad-based platform of services and features that were previously unavailable in such a tightly integrated offering.  Our leading virtualization expertise is what attracts businesses to Layered Tech, and we're excited to offer a robust new platform that, from a cloud perspective, stands apart by bundling new levels of security, storage, services, flexibility and accessibility."

Layered Tech's new integrated virtualized platform gives customers the reliability of dedicated servers with the high availability, processing power and scalability of virtual machines to meet constantly changing business needs.  The customer API, created by Layered Tech and based on industry standard protocols (SOAP and XML-RPC), provides easy connectivity and enables customers to perform activities such as customizing proprietary applications, monitoring and managing resources, reviewing analytics, and more via computer or mobile device.

And because Layered Tech wraps its new VPDC platform with tiered managed services that are based on its DEFCON service bundles, customers can choose from a range of support options, rather than the all-or-nothing approach from other hosting providers.  Support ranges from the highest root-level access down to the lowest self-managed option with varying levels in between, which lets customers focus on managing their businesses, not their VPDC.

"By migrating to off-premise private clouds, businesses get an immediate payback by better utilizing their internal IT staff, resources and budget, while enjoying the long-term benefits from reduced capital spending, higher productivity, greater speed to market and near-instantaneous scalability of computing resources," said Layered Tech CEO Jack Finlayson.  "Several Layered Tech customers are already successfully using early versions of our new VPDC platform, and as we move closer to general availability, we expect to announce additional features that will create even more value for enterprises looking to expand their off-premise, private cloud resources."
