Terremark announced Preferred Hotel Group as a customer on The Enterprise Cloud. Preferred Hotel Group will leverage Terremark's Enterprise Cloud services to meet the disaster recovery needs of its mission-critical applications, including its online reservation system.
The Enterprise Cloud is a managed platform that gives customers the power to provision computing resources for mission-critical applications in minutes. Enterprise Cloud services lets customers control a resource pool of processing, storage and networking and allows companies to deploy server capacity on demand.
"Terremark's Enterprise Cloud provides us the flexibility and control to provision our IT infrastructure to service the real-time needs of our business," said Lindsey Ueberroth, Executive Vice President, Preferred Hotel Group. "By purchasing a dedicated pool of computing resources and allocating them as needed, we can respond in real-time to situations that may affect our operations."
Terremark's Enterprise Cloud is powered by an enhanced version of Terremark's Infinistructure utility computing platform and leverages the company's top-tier data centers and access to massive and diverse network connectivity. At the center of Terremark's Enterprise Cloud is the company's new web portal, an application that allows customers to dynamically provision servers from a pre-allocated pool of dedicated computing resources. Servers can be configured and provisioned in minutes, grouped and organized according to role, and dynamically extended according to utilization. A variety of preconfigured server roles are available across Microsoft Windows, Linux and Sun Solaris operating systems. Plug-and-play bandwidth on demand is available from more than 160 global carriers. The portal also provides a full reporting interface that allows instant insight into resource utilization and application performance.
"We look forward to working with Preferred Hotels Group in support of their disaster recovery needs," said Barry Field, Terremark's Senior Vice President for U.S. Commercial Sales. "Terremark is ideally suited to meet Preferred Hotel Group's dynamic needs, as our Enterprise Cloud services enable enterprises to dynamically provision infrastructure to meet precise computing needs in minutes instead of weeks."
