StrataScale, Inc., a provider of productivity enhancing managed hosting solutions, today revealed that its clients are demanding greater flexibility and control in their IT infrastructure. Faced with stretched resources, many small and mid-tier businesses are migrating to outsourced IT solutions that can deliver improved efficiency and flexibility. StrataScale's server hosting product, IronScaleSM, features on-demand control of servers, security, storage, and network management from anywhere at anytime in a single, turnkey solution. This new level of flexibility and control allows clients to do more with less by dynamically managing infrastructure and scaling based on business requirements – eliminating the need for capital expenditures and to continually over-commit by purchasing and over-provisioning resources.
“The ability to cost-efficiently scale your IT infrastructure with the requirements of your business as it grows, is critical to the health and success of small to mid-sized companies,” said Bob Laliberte, analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “IronScale offers the flexibility to buy only what is needed today, while delivering the features and performance of an enterprise-class solution.”
“Since launching IronScale in December, we’ve had strong interest from companies looking for help to increase their operational efficiency and performance through our IronScale managed hosting solution,” said Yatish Mishra, president and CTO of StrataScale. “Especially in light of a down economy, they are more pressed than ever to streamline resources while improving their productivity. These are huge drivers for solutions such as IronScale, which enables companies to dynamically build, manage, and scale their IT environments as needed.”
StrataScale's IronScale Infrastructure Fosters SaaS Growth, Helps Mid-Tier Companies
Companies are looking at the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model more seriously than ever as a way to maximize capital efficiencies and streamline IT resources. According to a CMS Watch 2009 IT predictions report, companies will “look more to their SaaS solution providers to offer a full suite of tools and capabilities.” In turn, SaaS providers will require infrastructure platforms like IronScale. According to Tier1 Research senior analyst Antonio Piraino in his "Fall 2008 Managed Hosting & Cloud Computing II" report, Infrastructure-as-a-Service providers "should be seen as fostering the SaaS ecosystem, bringing more SaaS plays to market quicker. As these SaaS providers mature there is value to moving infrastructure over to a managed hoster: higher levels of support, consulting, control over deployment, security and network."
As small and mid-sized companies build out their IT infrastructures with servers, PCs, networking products, and software, they are often not equipped with the resources to manage it all. Add to this the fact that businesses are increasingly forced to be quicker to market and to rapidly adopt new technologies to maintain competitive advantages. IronScale addresses these challenges through a flexible, dynamic solution with the reliability, security, and performance of its enterprise-class IT environment.
