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 talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
