ERA Environmental Management Solutions, the only Fully-Supported, Comprehensive Environmental Management Software for the Oil & Gas, Automotive, and general manufacturing industries, has migrated its award-winning EMS platform onto the Cloud, enhancing its existing security and data handling capabilities with PEER 1 Hosting’s enterprise-grade VMware public cloud platform, Mission Critical Cloud.
Now on the Mission Critical Cloud, ERA’s clients will benefit from PEER 1’s FastFiber Network, Agile Load Balancing™, SAN storage, and their RapidEdge Content Delivery Network™. PEER 1 is SSAE 16 Type II certified, CSAE 3416 certified, PCI DSS compliant, Safe Harbor certified, Microsoft Gold certified partner, a Red Hat Advanced Hosting partner, and a Magento Platinum partner.
This move to the cloud represents the next step in environmental management software excellence, and ERA has shown its commitment to being ahead of the curve.
In addition to the high levels of data security that ERA has always offered, the EMS platform will now feature extra layers of server redundancy and backups, ensuring that clients’ data is doubly protected against natural disasters and service disruptions. Mission Critical Cloud’s multiple server layers ensure that the EMS will always be available at full capacity, even during backups and upgrades, without slowdown.
Confidential client data will be protected to the same bank-level security standards employed by ERA, and clients will now enjoy doubled security with the addition of PEER 1 Hosting’s continuous security monitoring and protection. This secure environmental compliance data will also be backed up to ERA’s exacting standards and stored on multiple redundant servers, ensuring that clients are in complete control and ownership of their information. PEER 1 Hosting will contribute its Defiant DDoS Shield, firewalls, Relentless Intrusion Detection, and SSL Certificates.
“ERA chose Mission Critical Cloud because PEER 1 Hosting demonstrated a clear commitment to meeting our high expectations for security and reliability. ERA has always guaranteed our clients that their data is secure and protected, and PEER 1 Hosting has proven to be up to the task,” explains ERA CEO Sarah Sajedi.
“Mission Critical Cloud was created with the demands of enterprise customers like ERA in mind, and we are very pleased to see our customers using it to improve their service offerings,” said Robert Miggins, SVP business development at PEER 1 Hosting. “The Mission Critical Cloud platform combines strong security, built-in disaster recovery and advanced Blueprints to ensure 99.999 percent uptime, making it an ideal public cloud solution for enterprises.”
