Today's Web 2.0 companies and Software-as-a-Service providers want to focus on developing their application services, and the capital and resources required to own and operate data centers no longer adds value for their users
Irvine and Aliso Viejo, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2006
International News Media (INM) (http://www.intlnewsmedia.net), an Internet marketing and media content delivery services company and 3Tera, Inc. (http://www.3tera.com), the innovator of grid and utility computing solutions for online services, today announced INM is leveraging 3Tera's new AppLogic grid operating system to easily and cost-effectively deliver, manage, and scale its existing media services.
AppLogic enables Web applications, including the infrastructure required to deliver them, to become completely portable, easily scalable, and managed remotely on grids of commodity servers using only a browser. By using AppLogic, INM now obviates the cost and complexity of owning and operating hardware infrastructure, and can capitalize on a utility service model to rapidly deliver and manage Web applications in a highly available, scalable, and virtualized environment.
"As an Internet-based services company, we strive to ensure we're utilizing the latest technologies for manageability, high availability, and scalability to stay competitive and meet our rapidly growing customer demand," said Gabriel Kent, CTO, Intl News Media. "The AppLogic platform enables INM to cut application development time, lower server and administration costs, improve server reliability via it's high-availability architecture, as well as improve the performance and growth potential of the INM network. In the end, our customers are the true beneficiaries of our system, which is always our primary goal."
INM's users gain exposure for their products or services through the company's sophisticated media channel which is designed to reach thousands of news outlets, consumers, and search engine users. To stay competitive, the company requires 100 percent uptime and the ability to deploy and manage its Web applications and services quickly and easily. Using AppLogic, an entire N-tier application or service can be packaged into a logical entity and managed as a single system. This approach also makes it very easy to assemble, deploy, monitor, control, and troubleshoot applications visually in a browser. Today, INM uses AppLogic to virtualize all of its public-facing properties and is in line to virtualize its entire platform by 2007.
"Today's Web 2.0 companies and Software-as-a-Service providers want to focus on developing their application services, and the capital and resources required to own and operate data centers no longer adds value for their users," said Bert Armijo, vice president, Marketing, 3Tera, Inc. "3Tera's AppLogic system packages the software and hardware infrastructure into a single portable entity, effectively removing the infrastructure barriers associated with bringing Internet-scale service to market. Now, using the same system, INM can speed new releases to market while being able to cost-effectively scale its applications as user demand grows, and pay only for the resources these applications require to run."

About 3Tera's AppLogic Grid Operating System
AppLogic is the first and only grid operating system designed to run and scale existing transactional Web applications. AppLogic is based on scalable grid architecture, advanced virtualization technologies and 3Tera's ground-breaking disposable infrastructure. The system converts existing commodity servers into scalable shared grids that are easy to manage. Disposable infrastructure packages applications and the infrastructure required to run them into self-contained and portable entities. As a result, AppLogic enables users to easily deploy existing Web applications on a grid, instantiate and scale them without modification, and do so without requiring a SAN or other shared storage. By completely separating software from the hardware infrastructure traditionally needed to run it, AppLogic enables users to take advantage of a true utility services model.
