New York, NY (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Today at Interop NY, enterprise cloud platform provider Tier 3 announced that it will add a data center in the New York metro area to complete the multi-region architecture of its enterprise-grade infrastructure as a service solution. New York joins Seattle and Chicago for a three-region model that enhances the high availability and built-in business continuity of the Tier 3 enterprise cloud. With its intuitive management controls, high performing, highly availability infrastructure and platform-agnostic orchestration and automation layer, Tier 3 meets the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) requirements of companies wishing to deploy public or virtual private (hybrid) clouds for increased business agility.
"Enterprises across the country are actively identifying apps they can move to a virtual private cloud, but to do so they are demanding a true enterprise-grade cloud platform that provides control, transparency, security, performance and a high availability five 9 SLA," said Adam Wray, CEO, Tier 3. "These customers also want to benefit from the peace of mind of built-in, multi-zone business continuity features and the value that advanced operation automation or auto-ops capabilities bring to significantly reducing operational complexity and costs. Tier 3 meets all of those customer requirements.”
Tier 3 chose to locate in New York based on frequent requests from customers, prospects and partners for a regional solution that offers high performance and low latency with the best combination of cloud-based utility and enterprise-grade availability and security. Tier 3 elected to collocate in Equinix’s New York IBX® (International Business Exchange™) for its enterprise-grade connectivity and carrier-neutral environment. This allows the company to offer Tier 3 Direct Connect for secure, performance-optimized connectivity – including Cross Connects and Equinix’s Carrier Ethernet Exchange as well as private VLAN and VPN.
