PEER 1 Hosting announced on Tuesday that it is now offering its VMware public cloud solution, Mission Critical Cloud, in four locations across the US.
Currently available in Canada, the UK and Germany, PEER 1’s Mission Critical Cloud is now available in New York City, Seattle, Chicago and Salt Lake City.
PEER 1 is also introducing Magento-Optimized Build Blueprints for Mission Critical Cloud eCommerce customers. Blueprints are cloud environment templates, which customers can use to launch the same configuration in a new deployment again and again.
PEER 1 worked closely with Magento’s engineering team on the blueprints, and Magento was named PEER 1 partner of the year in June, and last year as well.
Mission Critical Cloud includes auto-scaling CPUs, and new self-service features, where customers can create and manage advanced network configurations in Mission Critical Cloud with load balancers and site-to-site VPNs. PEER 1 has also introduced server resource addition support and improved credit card processing.
“We saw an existing gap in the market for a true enterprise-class solution, and believe the expansion of this offering to four additional datacenters is indicative of the strong interest in Mission Critical Cloud,” Robert Miggins, SVP business development at PEER 1 Hosting said. “This product isn’t just useful for our existing private cloud VMware customers that want to move to a public cloud, but also new SMB and enterprise customers that have been waiting for an enterprise-level public cloud environment. In fact, a majority of Mission Critical Cloud users are new to PEER 1 Hosting. By bringing Mission Critical Cloud to four additional data center locations, we hope to further the promise of choice for our customers, which, in the end, means a better result for them.”
