Wholesale-only firm can now scale storage infrastructure to Petabyte Size
AUSTIN, TX — August 9, 2010 — Artisan Infrastructure, a wholesale-only compute infrastructure provider, today announced that it has quadrupled its storage capacity enabling its customers to cost-effectively scale their private and public cloud computing growth.
Artisan’s upgrade in storage capacity, based on NetApp storage technology, scales to near-Petabyte size. Wholesale customers can now manage their own virtual NetApp filer storage platform using Cornerstone, Artisan’s virtual Private Data Center platform.
“This latest investment rounds out Artisan Infrastructure’s strategy to offer customers a wholesale-only compute infrastructure platform that enables complete control, autonomy and security when building their own private and public cloud computing solutions,” said Brian Hierholzer, president of Artisan Infrastructure.
“This added storage capacity allows Artisan Infrastructure to scale exponentially, while providing our customers the capacity, performance and autonomy they demand,” Hierholzer said. “Artisan’s Cornerstone vPDC customers have very specific requirements for managing their businesses autonomously and choosing their own software solutions, while using our infrastructure as if it were their own.”
Artisan Infrastructure’s target-customers include managed service providers, systems integrators, software developers, communications providers and value added resellers with a wide range of compute and storage demands.
“We chose NetApp FAS storage systems because we know the platform can accommodate virtually unlimited growth,” Hierholzer said.
Sirius Computer Solutions Inc., based in San Antonio, Texas, advised Artisan Infrastructure through the storage capacity expansion.
Artisan Infrastructure’s Cornerstone vPDC compute platform is built using products from the industry’s top vendors, including Cisco, Dell, Juniper Networks, NetApp and VMware.
All Artisan Infrastructure solutions are housed in multiple, geographically diverse, SAS 70-certified data centers to provide maximum redundancy and security.
