StrataScale Unveils New Cloud and Hybrid Solutions on World's Most Reliable Platform

Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Automated Managed Hosting, and Hybrid Hosting Services to be Available 24/7 through Easy-to-use Storefront

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- StrataScale, Inc., makers of the world's first fully Automated Managed Hosting solution, today announced the addition of three best-of-breed cloud offerings that are tailored to meet the unique infrastructure needs of any business regardless of size. In addition to its flagship physical Automated Managed Hosting service, StrataScale has developed the industry's most reliable, flexible, and secure public and private virtualized clouds. The company also unveiled a one-of-a-kind Hybrid Hosting solution that allows customers to seamlessly integrate physical managed servers and virtualized cloud servers on-the-fly in the same secure network and optionally cross connected with a client's colocation infrastructure. Unlike any other cloud service on the market, each of StrataScale's cloud offerings feature enterprise-grade redundant components on servers housed in parent company RagingWire Enterprise Solution Inc.'s world-class 220,000 square foot data center with 99.999% availability and N+2 redundancy. This distinction effectively allows any business to take advantage of an immediate infrastructure solution that matches quality previously only available to Fortune 1000 corporations.

StrataScale also debuted an easy-to-use storefront that instantly allows customers to make purchases or changes to their existing services. Customers can automatically scale up or down and add new computers and IT components without speaking to a sales representative. In an industry known for complex pricing, the new storefront showcases StrataScale's straightforward and transparent approach to pricing. StrataScale's configuration interface makes set-up and infrastructure changes incredibly simple through complete automation of all systems, including physical managed servers, public virtual servers and private virtual servers. Advanced features that once were only available in virtual environments are now transparently available for both physical servers and virtual cloud solutions within the StrataScale architecture.

"This is a very exciting time for StrataScale, as the company releases what we believe is the most technologically advanced suite of cloud services ever developed," said Yatish Mishra, founder, president and chief technology officer of StrataScale. "We listened to our customers' needs and took the time to build each product line with the finest components available. Our cloud offerings have been repeatedly tested to ensure the optimum experience for our customer base."

New Offerings Allow Any Business Access to Instant Enterprise-grade Infrastructure

StrataScale's Public and Private Cloud offerings deliver hypervisor-based virtual machine instances running CentOS, Red Hat Linux, or Microsoft Windows. The Public Cloud offers businesses the most cost-effective, reliable, and responsive computing platform to utilize shared physical computing resources, while the Private Cloud gives customers running mission-critical applications a remarkably stable and secure server environment dedicated solely to their business. StrataScale's Private Cloud is also the industry's first private cloud that can be purchased through a storefront and completely configured through a web portal.

StrataScale's exclusive Hybrid Hosting solution enables customers to seamlessly integrate managed servers and cloud servers to meet all of their infrastructure needs at any given moment. Hybrid Cloud customers can run Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Automated Managed Hosting servers all on the same network, managed through the StrataScale portal. It is as flexible as a hosting solution can get, allowing customers to instantly change their services with the click of a button whether physical or virtual and without compromising security or reliability.

"We had tested so many of the mainstream on-demand infrastructure offerings. But we're in the business of secure data backup for businesses and medical offices, so we weren't comfortable with having everything just 'in the cloud.' Visiting StrataScale's world-class facilities instantly relieved our security concerns," said Jason Thayer, founder and chief technology officer of Wintensive Technologies. "By combining the ease, flexibility and scalability of on-demand server deployments with a more robust Physical, Private and Hybrid infrastructure, StrataScale has allowed us to significantly differentiate our business from competitors."

"The combination of traditional and cloud infrastructure is going to be a staple of the market for the foreseeable future," said Antonio Piraino, vice president and research director at Tier1 Research. "Hosting providers like StrataScale, that work on enabling administrators to manage and provision their server environments through a single pane of glass will be solving a problem that has long frustrated and hindered integrated operations; and will make it a leading choice for IT operations staff."

StrataScale's innovative Automated Managed Hosting service remains an ideal solution for businesses seeking the utmost in security and reliability without sacrificing scalability and flexibility. It offers cloudlike simplicity on non-shared physical servers. Automated Managed Hosting services can now be purchased or modified through the new storefront.

The new Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Hosting services will be available for purchase through the StrataScale storefront on April 1, 2010. For technical specifications for each service offering, please visit www.stratascale.com.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
