LONDON and ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- BT Plc. (NYSE: BT), one of the world's leading providers of communications solutions and services, and 3Tera, Inc., the innovator of grid computing and utility computing services for online applications, announced today that BT has signed a multi-year deal to use 3Teras AppLogic grid operating system.

3Tera’s AppLogic grid operating system eliminates the need for co-location, private racks and managed services by enabling the assembly, deployment and management of infrastructure and applications using only a browser and basic IT skills.

Kevin Nickels, BT’s Director, Concept to Market, commented, “After reviewing numerous solutions and considering building a solution internally, we determined that 3Tera’s AppLogic is the solution best positioned to meet our immediate needs. AppLogic enables BT to deliver market leading on-demand computing services. ”

Vlad Miloushev, president and CEO of 3Tera, said, “We were impressed by BT’s market foresight and leadership in the Telco industry. They appreciate the need to stay on top of the utility computing market. By adopting AppLogic, BT will continue to keep its leadership in enabling major new operational capabilities.”

"BT has led the industry by aggressively investing billions of dollars a year to build their next generation network, powering the growth of new services such as VoIP and Software as a Service (SaaS)” said Andrew Schroepfer, founder of Tier1 Research (www.T1R.com), a research group that tracks the competitive hosting, co-location, Internet services, and software-as-a-service markets for their subscribers". 3Tera has established themselves as a technology enabler in the utility computing space, and BT's partnership with them should give them the ability to offer cutting edge services that are based around simplification; reusable capabilities; and hosting of software-based services running as applications."
