Layered Technologies, a provider of "on-demand" IT infrastructure, today announced their second major product release at the second annual LT PACT conference. The company says that working in direct conjunction with Microsoft, it is the first hosting provider to launch Hyper-V.
It explains that Hyper-V, previously codenamed Viridian, is a hypervisor-based technology that is a key feature of Windows Server 2008, and allows virtualization of multiple operating systems on the same server. It provides a scalable, reliable, and highly available virtualization platform.
The company avers that it will provide Microsoft Hyper-V GoLive Beta Program and Microsoft Developer Network members with dedicated servers in an on-demand, hosted environment. As a member of the MSDN community or a GoLive Partner, customers will receive an exclusive monthly discount on the Microsoft Hyper-V-enabled hosting packages, it adds.
"We are excited to be a part of Microsoft's ongoing effort to provide customers and partners with the best operating system platform for virtualization," said Jack Finlayson, Chief Executive Officer of Layered Technologies. "We worked closely with Microsoft to be the first hosting providers to rapidly deploy this technology. In bringing virtualization to the market, we are looking to help businesses consolidate resources, reduce support costs, and decrease operations expenses."
"The mainstream acceptance of virtualization provides a new level of sought-after features for administrators," said Aaron Phillips, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Layered Technologies. "As the technology has matured, a hosted virtualization offering through our relationship with Microsoft was a natural progression."
