Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), a leading global provider of managed dedicated hosting and on-demand virtualization/cloud computing services, today announced that it has been selected by Model N, Inc. to provide a custom, highly secure virtual environment to support its SaaS-based Revenue Management Applications, called Revenue Management Cloud (RM Cloud). In addition to developing and hosting the infrastructure, which was created in a VMware environment, Layered Tech is also partnering closely with Model N to provide robust managed services and best-in-class security and certification to Model N’s customers.

Model N’s solutions have proven and demonstrable success in helping companies reduce regulatory compliance risk, eliminate incentives overpayments, improve price execution, and increase margins. RM Cloud gives customers unprecedented anytime, anywhere access to its solutions while reducing recurring annual costs.
While evaluating potential cloud partners, Model N searched for an enterprise-ready cloud provider capable of meeting its stringent private-cloud and VMware environment requirements. After a thorough selection process, Model N ultimately chose Layered Tech for its experienced, highly responsive, and technically knowledgeable team, as well as for Layered Tech’s ability to provision a custom, private cloud environment that could run virtual instances of Model N’s software.
“When we began our search for a cloud provider, we knew it was important for us to partner with a vendor who could provide flexibility with their private-cloud offerings, and after meeting with Layered Tech’s extremely skilled team, it was clear that they had the right mix of expertise, capability, and customer service to meet our needs. In addition, we outlined very stringent requirements, especially for protecting our customers’ sensitive data, and Layered Tech showed us that they could deliver,” said Richard Yu, Vice President of Cloud Computing at Model N. “With the launch of RM Cloud, we’re revolutionizing how Revenue Management solutions are delivered and more important, providing greater value to our customers by reducing total cost of ownership and increasing return on investment.”
