Multiple Hatsize Clouds Optimize Performance Worldwide
Hatsize provides product training, demos and proof-of-concept trials for some of the world’s leading technology and training organizations. To ensure that Hatsize customers around the world always experience the best possible performance – even when they use thousands of sessions concurrently, Hatsize created the Hatsize worldwide network of private clouds.
The worldwide network of Hatsize private clouds leverages four global datacenters in Europe, Asia, and North America and is designed to showcase their customers’ products with optimum performance and minimum latency no matter where their customers’ users are located. On average Hatsize customers report a 4 to 5 fold increase in speed for users based in Europe and Asia.
Why a Worldwide Network of Private Clouds Matters
There are three reasons why a worldwide network of private clouds or multiple datacenters located in different regions around the world are more important than ever and critical to the successful delivery of cloud-based training labs.
- Companies are starting to understand they must provide a better user experience for all users including global end users, who are no longer willing to accept data latency and slow performance.
- Companies desiring growth have realized that emerging markets are forecasted to grow faster than advanced economies and they will likely drive a larger percentage of net new business.
- Companies are seeking to be more global – in terms of their workforces and their customer bases – both of which need product demos and training.
Hatsize Worldwide Network of Private Clouds
Today, Hatsize has a worldwide network of private clouds based on four, fully-operational datacenters in North America, Europe and Asia, which can currently support 100,000 sessions per month and much more based on demand. The Hatsize global network of private clouds provides industry leading uptime, session quality and customer satisfaction. Performance is 4-5 times faster in Europe and Asia than using the solution remotely from North America.
The global datacenters utilize premium infrastructure including state-of-the-art heating/ventilation/air conditioning; the highest level of reliability including minimum N+1 redundancy for every power system; biometric scanning; “lights out”/opaque cages, video and infrared surveillance; intrusion-detection scanning and security audits. Also, customer data is firewalled and partitioned so that customers cannot access each other’s data.
In addition, the four datacenters are linked to provide failover, backup, and disaster recovery support to ensure seamless delivery of both on-demand and scheduled sessions globally.
It is worth noting that the Hatsize cloud-based training labs can also be delivered through a client’s own datacenters. But unless a client has a significant investment in lab equipment and specialized physical devices, it is probably more effective – both from a cost and performance perspective – to let Hatsize deliver the cloud-based training globally from its new worldwide network of private clouds.
