Milan – June 03rd, 2010
Tinet, formerly the carrier arm of Tiscali Group, the only global carrier exclusively committed to the IP and Ethernet wholesale market, announces that its Virtual Private Line Services (VPLS) Solution has been selected by Hosting.com, the leading provider of managed hosting, cloud hosting and colocation solutions. Hosting.com selected Tinet’s VPLS services for its data replication and disaster recovery solutions for its hosted hybrid cloud computing deployments.
The VPLS solution leverages Tinet’s robust, global, Ethernet network. The solution is a layer 2 transport service that supports point-to-point and any-to-any connectivity. Tinet’s VPLS network construction provides Hosting.com guaranteed connectivity between Hosting.com’s three cloud “SuperSites” located in Delaware, Kentucky and Colorado. Hosting.com’s cloud “SuperSites” are large, public clusters hosted in each datacenter. Tinet’s solution allowed Hosting.com to create one of the only public cloud infrastructures that connects clouds in multiple datacenters and geographies – providing Hosting.com customers with the highest levels of security and redundancy available in the cloud computing marketplace.
“Tinet is one of the few providers that could offer us dedicated transport between all three of our cloud’ SuperSites,” states Darrel Hyde, Director of Network Security & Engineering for Hosting.com. “Our custom hybrid hosting solutions demand that our network provide low latency and guaranteed Service Level Agreements (SLAs); Tinet’s network delivers on both. In addition, Tinet’s proactive network monitoring allows us to confidently design different types of cloud solutions including our Cloud VPS, Cloud Enterprise, Cloud Dedicated, and Cloud Private to ensure we meet the various cloud hosting requirements of our clients.”
“Our network is a leading backbone that leverages MPLS and Traffic Engineering to guarantee end-to-end Ethernet and VPLS connectivity across a global footprint,” continues Paolo Gambini, CMO of Tinet. “Our specialist focus enables us to optimize our backbone design and engineering to deliver high capacity IP and Ethernet services and therefore ensure strong SLAs and high degree of resiliency.”
Hosting.com selected Tinet after a thorough review of Tinet’s network reach and quality. Tinet provides Hosting.com with a flexible and scalable solution in the U.S.; one that is ready to accommodate Hosting.com’s future growth as the company’s cloud solutions expand globally.
