Colocation Hosting Provider DataSite and Compliance Specialists Layered Tech Announce Strategic Alliance

ORLANDO, Fla., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DataSite, a colocation hosting provider with data centers in Orlando, Atlanta and Boise, today announced a strategic alliance with Layered Tech, a secure hosting provider specializing in PCI, HIPAA and FISMA data compliance. This new strategic partnership enhances both tech companies' portfolio of service offerings in the rapidly growing data center and information technology management sector.

As a colocation hosting firm, DataSite provides mission critical data center facilities and support for its customers. Layered Tech provides a trusted partner that can deliver monitoring, support, administration and even compliance management for customers who want to spend less time managing their infrastructure and more time running their business. Providing these services remotely, as opposed to exclusively in their own data centers, is an emerging model for secure cloud and managed hosting providers like Layered Tech.

This partnership expands DataSite's offerings for new customers interested in housing their servers locally, while still needing added levels of support, as well as offering expanded services to customers who handle sensitive medical, government or credit card payment information.

"The relationship enables DataSite to offer managed services and cloud computing solutions to customers who had to look to other data centers in the past," said Robert Wilson Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Those customers can now take advantage of Layered Tech's expertise while still benefiting from DataSite's ultra-secure facilities with world-class power and cooling infrastructure."

It also provides a migration path for current DataSite customers who may require secure managed hosting and compliance services in the future.

For Layered Tech, the alliance extends the company's network of data centers through which they deliver secure cloud, managed hosting and compliance solutions. The company, which currently operates data centers in Dallas, Kansas City, Chicago and Washington D.C. metro areas, can now easily accommodate new customers who prefer to maintain their hardware in the Orlando, Atlanta or Boise markets.

Layered Tech CEO Bruce Chatterly said the partnership is a perfect fit, "The alliance opens up new markets and gives Layered Tech an introduction to DataSite customers considering outsourcing the management of their IT infrastructure. At the same time, it enables Layered Tech customers who have regional requirements in Florida, Georgia or Idaho to expand their reach into those key markets without having to manage multiple providers."

The announcement comes as DataSite prepares to open its Boise data center in coming weeks. The new facility consists of two raised 20,000 sq. ft. floor areas and will support Tier 3 and Tier 4 requirements. DataSite plans to spend more than $20 million for future space and capacity in the region.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

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 smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
