When clients do business in the cloud, it’s important to stay grounded in a secure, highly redundant, yet flexible cloud based computing infrastructure.
TierPoint recognizes that clients often have diverse computing environments. Our goal is to work with our clients to determine the best deployment methodology for their situation and optimize their cloud model to meet their business needs. This includes hybrid cloud implementations with Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS, as well as TierPoint Cloud and colocation solutions.
The graphic below illustrates a simple view of how we see our hybrid IT ecosystem. The model doesn’t show the work we are doing to expand high-throughput, low latency connections between these platforms or the breadth of managed services including security that reduce burdens on your staff.
We’re all in on hybrid IT because we believe managing information infrastructure is a tough, complex task. Organizations want infrastructure to be simpler to manage with less risks and more security. They want their applications to be available when their users need them and they want the agility to change when their needs change. That is the promise of hybrid IT, and it’s what TierPoint is delivering today. The result is that clients are able to focus more on their core competencies and shift non-core activities to a managed services provider.
In addition to infrastructure benefits, hybrid IT makes it easier to deploy applications across your organization both in a Cloud and within your own data center. Hybrid IT allows customers to place workloads in a cloud that makes the most sense based on that workload needs. Microsoft Office 365 (O365), the very popular productivity suite, is a good example of this and TierPoint has developed a growing managed O365 practice. In addition to O365, we have a managed Mimecast Unified Enterprise Email Management service.
TierPoint is a member of the AWS Partner Network (APN), offering dedicated high-speed connectivity to Amazon Web Services (AWS) via AWS Direct Connect through TierPoint’s Seattle data center.
Seattle is the first TierPoint site to become an AWS Direct Connect location and the company expects to make it available through additional data centers in the future.
