Hive-IO Enterprise Cloud Compute Platform Now Hosted by TierPoint
Hive-IO Platform Customers Now Have Easy Access to Better Scalability, Disaster Recovery Capabilities and Managed Services
New York, San Jose, December 9, 2015 — Hive-IO, a leading software-defined infrastructure solution, today announced that TierPoint will host Hive-IO’s cloud-compute platform to give Hive-IO customers easy access to increased scalability, disaster recovery capabilities and related services. TierPoint is a national provider of cloud computing, colocation and managed services.
The Hive-IO Platform-as-a-Service enables organizations to run advanced Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and a variety of custom workloads without needing substantial capital hardware investments. In addition to VDI and virtual servers, Hive-IO makes it easy to deploy Hadoop for big data workloads and can operate many more applications. Hive-IO currently manages their platform on their own servers in a state-of-the-art TierPoint data center. As their customer base grows, plans are in place to utilize TierPoint’s cloud infrastructure.
The Hive-IO Enterprise Cloud Compute Platform is available now, hosted inside a TierPoint data center or in a customer’s own data center. SMB’s and larger organizations should contact Hive-IO at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The need for agility and cost flexibility is pushing more IT to be delivered as a service, said Shea Long, TierPoint’s SVP of products and services. Hive-IO’s platform helps CIOs/CTOs adapt to the new realities of IT especially with workforces becoming more geographically distributed all the time. They are a great example of how TierPoint can help clients innovate and scale up their businesses by leveraging our connectivity, DR capabilities and national presence.
We were looking for a reliable and stable partner that was easy to do business with and that could help us manage our growth at our desired pace, said Kevin McNamara, CTO and Founder, Hive-IO. We believe the combination of TierPoint’s data center services and our compute platform makes a compelling VDI, servers, storage and infrastructure virtualization solution.
