The new licensing model builds on the strength of 3Teras AppLogic grid computing technology currently used by hosting providers such as British Telecom (BT) to offer utility computing services. Now, enterprises can leverage AppLogic in their own operations to provide virtual private data centers for individual lines of business or applications. A Virtual Private Data Center has functionally equivalent to a colocation facility, enabling users to define fully custom application infrastructure using just a browser. AppLogic then creates and maintains the infrastructure for the user on the grid. As a result, data center design and operations are greatly simplified. Complex requirements like high availability and disaster recovery become easy and affordable enough to implement for all applications.
Vlad Miloushev, president and CEO, 3Tera, said, Many IT organizations are looking to leverage Internet technology to increase the control and scalability of their IT infrastructure. With AppLogic, enterprise users can build their own utility computing services to ease data center design and operations, including business continuity, backup strategies, application design, security, deployment, performance optimization and monitoring.
