SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 9 -- StrataScale Inc. today announced the general availability of IronScale (www.ironscale.com), a fully automated managed hosting solution with many of the benefits of virtualization, but with physical servers. With IronScale, you control your entire IT infrastructure from anywhere at anytime via an advanced Web portal. IronScale offers instant provisioning and dynamic reconfiguration of physical servers, security, storage, and networks on demand in real time. What clients get is a cost-effective, enterprise-class managed hosting solution that delivers resource efficiency, flexibility, and performance.
"IronScale is a compelling solution that fills a market need for highly automated, managed IT infrastructure," said Melanie Posey, research director at IDC. "IronScale offers a total infrastructure approach that addresses the entire environment (not just servers and storage) and provides organizations with real-time, on-demand control and flexibility."
IronScale enhances productivity through a comprehensive set of breakthrough features and capabilities including cloning, snapshots, storage on-the-fly, instant server repurposing, and auto failover. While IronScale supports virtualization applications, these advanced features are delivered on physical servers and enable clients to quickly scale their IT environments, increase availability, maximize uptime, and ultimately have peace of mind. Other hosting offerings might have some of the features and some of the automation that IronScale has, but no one else delivers a complete, fully integrated, end-to-end solution like IronScale.
"We chose IronScale as our managed hosting solution primarily because of the flexibility it offers at an attractive price," said Kevin Droege, director of IT and DCO at Guard ID Systems Inc. "As a high growth provider of consumer online identity theft prevention solutions, Guard ID Systems requires a cost-effective IT environment that provides the flexibility to scale along with our growing business. After a thorough review of managed hosting solutions, we decided that IronScale was the right choice for us."
IronScale is available in three levels of bundled server environments, built on dedicated, enterprise-class dual- and quad-core x86 servers. Each bundle features RAID-configured SAN storage, choice of Red Hat Linux and Windows Server operating systems, dedicated bandwidth, VPN access, and 24x7 monitoring and management and full support.
"The reception from clients, media, and analysts has been outstanding," said Yatish Mishra, president and CTO of StrataScale. "We believe we have the right product for the right market at the right time."
