Datacenter Reduces Cost and Speeds Delivery of Cloud-Automated Demos and Training
Calgary, Alberta – March 28, 2012 – Hatsize, the leading cloud automation software provider for hands-on demos and training, today announced the addition of a new U.S. datacenter to the Hatsize cloud network that is designed to support the needs of the growing cloud automation market.
According to the latest 451 Research Market Monitor Report, “the market grew 70% in the last year and Hatsize is one of the top 10 vendors driving the market’s growth.”
To address market expansion, Hatsize is adding new datacenter capacity to its already robust environment. By collocating in this new US based datacenter, Hatsize will be able to reduce technology infrastructure costs and complexity for clients while improving quality and speeding the deployment of cloud-based demo and training services. Hatsize’s existing cloud network of datacenters are located in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific Regions.
The Hatsize datacenters are the backbone for delivering global cloud-based product demos, proof-of -concept trials and virtual training sessions for technology and training companies who want to increase product revenues while decreasing travel and infrastructure costs.
“Datacenters have always been a critical part of Hatsize’s global cloud automated demo and training solution — and they will be even more important as the cloud automation market grows,” said Andy McBride, Hatsize VP of Operations. “This new facility not only supports Hatsize’s market growth, but provides the flexible capacity that allows Hatsize to deliver cloud-automated demo and training services that enable clients to reduce costs, improve training effectiveness and gain competitive advantage.”
Key attributes of the new datacenter include:
- Smarter datacenter management: Thousands of sensors, connecting IT equipment, datacenter and building automation systems, provide data that can be analyzed to plan future capacity planning, conserve energy and maintain operations in the event of a power outage.
- Energy efficiency: The datacenter uses half the energy cost to operate compared to datacenters of similar size by taking advantage of free cooling – using the outside air to cool the datacenter. Intelligent systems use sensors to continuously read temperature and relative humidity throughout the datacenter and dynamically adjust cooling in response to changes in demand.
- Cloud computing capability: Support for cloud computing workloads allow clients to use only the resources necessary to support their IT operations at any given moment – eliminating the need for hardware resource that might have been previously needed to perform the same task.
- Built for expansion: Due to an innovative modular design method, Hatsize will be able to quickly add future capacity as needed. The new datacenter can also rapidly and seamlessly expand its power and cooling capacity.
Hatsize is a leading cloud automation software company that has provided over 2 million hours of cloud-enabled demo and training sessions for the world’s most successful technology companies including IBM, Juniper, Sun Microsystems and Symantec.
