SAN JOSE, Calif., May 15 -- BlueArc Corp., a market leader in scalable, high-performance network storage, today announced that Media Temple, an innovative Web hosting and application services leader, has benefited from the significant performance and scalability offered by the company's Titan 2000 series as the backbone of its breakthrough Web hosting platform, the Grid-Service. With its innovative hosting service, Media Temple has introduced a platform that is the envy of the Web hosting world, and BlueArc's performance, throughput and reliability are the foundation of its rapidly growing base of more than 100,000 hosted domains.
"Creative professionals, developers, Web designers and ad agencies are our largest demographic and they are extremely demanding -- constantly pushing the limits of technology when it comes to storage capacity, economics and performance," said Demian Sellfors, CEO of Media Temple. "BlueArc's Titan 2000 system is the only technology that allowed us to design a hosting service capable of handling the amount of data and performance our customers demand. Since deploying BlueArc in December of 2006, we have been relentless in our demands for performance, seeing the infrastructure consistently tested to hundreds of thousands of IOPs and significant throughput. BlueArc has been a fantastic partner in helping us meet our growth challenges in every respect."
Media Temple is utilizing a pair of BlueArc's Titan 2000 storage systems with more than 90TB of capacity to power the Grid-Service platform, with the ability to scale to the hundreds of terabytes rapidly as customer demands grow. With the Grid-Service powered service, Media Temple reduced roadblocks and points of failure by using hundreds of servers working in tandem in a virtualized environment. As a result, customers leveraging Media Temple's service can have the freedom and flexibility to design and grow their own businesses on demand, affordably scaling their storage resources whenever they need it. In addition, because the Grid-Service can support intense bursts of traffic and growing audiences for sites, applications and e-mail, its users are less susceptible to potential down-time and other problems.
"We are extremely pleased to count such an innovative, forward-thinking company as Media Temple to BlueArc's rapidly expanding customer list of leading Internet pioneers. We are proud that the Titan 2000 has played an integral part in helping the company create their ground-breaking offering," said Steve Daheb, vice president of marketing and business development for BlueArc. "The Titan 2000 storage systems offer customers in all industries the ultimate in high-performance solutions that grow as their needs grow, and Media Temple is another great example."
