We are absolutely confident in the DynaVol solution, which allows companies to easily and inexpensively access server space 'on-demand' in whatever amount they need at any point and time, with a Service Level Agreement (SLA), that guarantees 99.9 percent uptime
Plano, TX (PRWEB) October 17, 2007
Web 2.0 Summit - Layered Technologies, a leading provider of reliable, affordable, and scalable on-demand, self-managed utility hosting services, today announces at the Web 2.0 Summit DynaVol for Web 2.0 companies, a grid-based scalable and flexible data management solution. Whether storing data or serving static content, DynaVol offers a highly-available, reliable and secure environment for data management needs.
"DynaVol is an ideal solution for Web 2.0 companies with lots of data storage needs," said Michael Platner, CEO of Layered Technologies. "DynaVol is great for developers building the next big application - they can take their storage for granted and focus on innovation, not the reliability or security of their data storage solution."
DynaVol is a web-based storage solution that offers a reliable and secure environment for either storing data or serving static content. DynaVol safeguards valuable data at on-site and off-site locations using a highly-available data storage model that utilizes the transparent data mirroring of Layered Technologies grid hosting infrastructure.
With DynaVol all data is stored in "virtualized containers," allowing for complete user control of the storage environment, including the ability to upload, download, store and serve static data from one convenient location to another. The DynaVol package is housed in a Virtual Private Server (VPS) environment, enabling access to the supported protocols and services using either built-in VPN server support or public IP-based access systems.
"We are absolutely confident in the DynaVol solution, which allows companies to easily and inexpensively access server space 'on-demand' in whatever amount they need at any point and time, with a Service Level Agreement (SLA), that guarantees 99.9 percent uptime," said Todd Abrams, COO and President of Layered Technologies, "Unlike Amazon's S3, all data in DynaVol is duplicated. DynaVol also offers tiered pricing that includes storage and bandwidth allocation."
Additional differences between DynaVol and Amazon's S3 include:
- Pricing: DynaVol's tiered pricing includes storage and bandwidth allocations; S3's tiered pricing does not include storage or bandwidth allocation, only pay per GB storage and bandwidth
- Full data backup management application: DynaVol is flexible, giving the user a choice of application; S3 only offers this with the Amazon application
- Other features of DynaVol that S3 does not have: Redundancy; Redundantly stores a copy of back up data; push or pull data storage; ability to use as a Windows File Share; Mount as a File share on a Mac, Linux or BSD Client; Use existing control panels (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Plesk, etc.) to ftp your local backup files.
Pricing for DynaVol packages starts at $14.99 per month (with a Layered Technologies' server) and includes free allocations of data storage and bandwidth. Additional bandwidth is available at discounted rates to support customers' specific bandwidth needs.
