Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) August 11, 2009
Macquarie Hosting, a division of Macquarie Telecom, has announced it successfully designed and delivered a high availability, fully redundant hosting solution for T-bone, a leading independent web development agency.
T-bone entered the partnership with Macquarie Hosting for its mission critical online application hosting and business tools for clients including Toyota Motor Corporation Australia, Oporto, Tyrrell's Wines and Barbeques Galore.
Macquarie Hosting has delivered a combination of Sun Microsystems servers connected to its managed storage area network to deliver the redundancy, guaranteed scalability and availability that T-bone requires to service its customers. The dedicated servers are housed in Macquarie Hosting's ISO 27001 and DSD Certified data center, the Intellicentre.
T-bone selected Macquarie Hosting for its proven experience in dedicated web hosting for web 2.0 companies and its ability to provide 24/7, secure availability of mission critical applications. The personal accountable service and proactivity that the Macquarie Hosting team demonstrated in working with T-bone were critical factors.
Tony Hindle, Managing Director of T-bone Productions said, "I realised from day one that a fully redundant, reliable hosting solution was a must for the business. As T-bone grew, we became increasingly aware that the managed service we had in place was not meeting our requirements."
Macquarie Hosting worked closely with the team at T-bone to design and implement the technical specifications, spanning the firewall, network, load balancing and dedicated server hosting infrastructures that T-bone required. In addition, Macquarie Hosting was selected as it demonstrated a clear understanding of T-bone's business objectives and responsiveness to proactively manage its hosting services.
The solution from Macquarie Hosting gives T-bone the scalability it requires to increase server capacity to cope with peaks in traffic across its clients' websites and mission critical applications while maintaining the low latency and the secure online experience its customers have come to expect.
Tony said, "Our customers rely on us to think beyond the end-user environment that we are creating. This means that T-bone is fully accountable for the back-end infrastructure underpinning their services. Through our partnership with Macquarie Hosting, we ensure that it fits so seamlessly with their business that they can afford to forget about it."
"Macquarie Hosting is our most important supplier so it is critical that we work in true partnership. My team relies on Macquarie Hosting for proactive technical strategies that will meet our evolving business requirements."
