Data Return unveiled its next-generation utility
computing platform, Infinistructure. It is the first utility-enabled
managed services platform with the ability to dynamically move running
applications across physical servers transparently. The platform provides an
on-demand infrastructure for running business-critical applications
with flexibility and economy.
Previous utility computing efforts in the managed services industry
have focused on form factor, maximizing data center density and
minimizing deployment times with the use of blade servers.
Infinistructure's software layer extends the concept of simple
horizontal scalability to a comprehensive on-demand solution that takes
advantage of new breakthroughs in secure virtualization technology.
Infinistructure features the ability to move applications across
physical infrastructure according to hardware load and performance, and
dynamic utility provisioning and billing for processor, memory, storage
"We've taken five years of knowledge and experience in delivering
utility computing solutions for clients and put it into an innovative
new technology platform specifically designed to address the business
needs of our customers," said Sunny C. Vanderbeck, chief executive
officer for Data Return. "Infinistructure brings capacity-on-demand
computing to our clients while greatly reducing capital investment
requirements, providing an accessible entry point to best-of-breed
application infrastructure and services. We believe Infinistructure is
particularly well-suited to application service providers, who now have
a platform that can grow cost-effectively with their business."
Data Return also announced an agreement to provide services on the
Infinistructure platform to Opinionsite, a provider of online
market research. "Infinistructure combines the economic and
capacity-on-demand benefits of utility computing with the secure,
enterprise-class environment and superior customer support for which
Data Return is known," said Andrew Korman, chief executive officer for
Opinionsite. "Infinistructure gives us the flexibility to pay for the
resources we need, when we need them."
Infinistructure's enterprise-class server and storage infrastructure
provides a best-of-breed platform with 64-bit dual core AMD Opteron
processors, comprehensive redundancy features, gigabit networking, and
disk performance exceeding typical dedicated server solutions.
Infinistructure's inherent performance and reliability allows Data
Return to offer application- level service level agreements at levels
far in excess of a standard single-threaded environment.
Infinistructure's flexibility and resource efficiency provides an
application platform that combines enterprise-class performance with
low capital requirements and a pricing model that scales with the
application. Customers can take advantage of Data Return's
comprehensive managed services at an accessible entry point, and keep
up with application demand while controlling costs, allowing their
application infrastructure to scale efficiently with their business.
