As cloud based IT infrastructure fractures rather than bonds online working practices, Tier 3’s Enterprise Cloud solution allows companies to have the knowledge and information they need in one place. This provides tremendous operational benefits, from streamlining workflow management to freeing up resources and simplifying cloud based IT usability.
Any successful enterprise with an IT infrastructure does not stand still, and where the cloud is concerned for today’s online marketplace, companies require an on-demand, reliable and secure platform that is designed and configured for them alone. The challenge is financing and resourcing such an infrastructure has long required multi-vendor hardware and software integration. It is an approach that becomes cluttered and complex to manage.
Advancing the cloud trend and cloud platforms as a customisable infrastructure, the Tier 3 Complete Enterprise Cloud Platform offers all-in-one simplicity and IT resource management to elevate the decision-making capabilities of all your staff.
The Complete Enterprise Cloud Platform is built on three levels of service:
1) Infrastructure as a Service that offers complete scalability and flexibility for the unique performance metrics and management needs of your company’s data centre.
2) Platform as a Service transforms enterprise level workflow with agility, speed and awareness. Being better informed and quicker to market, leads to innovation and growth.
3) Cloud management via a simple control portal facilitates automation of daily server administration functions, load balancing and prioritises processor intensive multi-tasking.
Running an on-demand infrastructure via high performance virtual machines, Tier 3 virtual servers are built on fully redundant hardware that is connected across high-speed virtual networks for a variety of operating systems and application dependencies. When setup in collaboration with a cloud hosted server this infrastructure brings significant benefits from a security and performance standpoint. Firewall access, backup and replication, server storage and hypervisor hosting build an integrated approach to cloud based IT management that is unsurpassed.
Such an infrastructure maintains the high performance and high availability of application tiers that are built inside virtual machine host servers and operate across high-speed 10GB networking. This significantly reduces network bottlenecks, downtime issues and lowers latency.
The rapid evolution of technology means that compliance standards are constantly changing, and as such must be rigorously maintained within your own IT infrastructure. Tier 3’s Enterprise Cloud solution is fully compliant with SSAE 16 auditing standards, data privacy acts and encryption protocol. While many cloud-based solutions fail to comply with datacentre regulations of different countries, Tier 3’s enterprise class solution uses in-country replication standards, role-based systems admin and physical security mechanisms that consistently enforce governance wherever they are deployed or sending data throughout the world.
Hosting cloud services of this kind raises the bar even further and in partnership with PEER 1, the enterprise cloud solution drives IT synergy to a wide spectrum of businesses and industries. PEER 1/Tier 3 collaboration is built on in-depth, security zone-based firewall access to systems and hosting Points of Presence.
Furthermore, customer specific VLANs and VPN only access maintains deep levels of control for robust network security. This is crucial for intrusion detection and prevention as cyber-attacks get more sophisticated. If you wish to learn more on cyber security, check out Security Awareness training. PEER 1 hosting of the Enterprise Cloud Platform also uses separate physical assets to ensure zero third party access to physical hardware or hypervisor layers.
Operated across a superfast network, Tier 3’s enterprise class solution provides ISP neutral Internet connectivity via state-of-the-art enterprise wide Juniper SRX hardware that can deliver any volume of traffic safely to your virtual machines. Across a collaborative network of this kind, site-to-site and client VPNs can be maintained for optimum speed and reliability of service thanks to pervasive load balancing, customer network integration and traffic management protocol as a self-service model.
As cloud computing breaks new ground as a pivotal IT trend and corporate requirement, running a standard solution will fail to move the needle of business profitability. In this regard, running a solution such as that provided by Tier 3 and across a super-fast network as hosted by PEER 1 Hosting, will elevate brand awareness, speed and agility of service within your own private cloud.
