Layered Technologies Launches Automated Web Hosting Infrastructure To Streamline Server Selection and Provisioning

January 13, 2009

Plano, TX – Layered Technologies, Inc. (Layered Tech), a leading worldwide provider of on-demand IT infrastructure, today launched a fully automated Web hosting platform that dramatically accelerates the availability and provisioning of servers for both customers and partners. A result of the company’s business growth and heavy investments in research and development, this autonomous system will transform processes to speed server delivery and enrich customer experiences.

The platform, called “Astro,” is a unique combination of hardware and software that provides flexibility, removes delays, and increases efficiencies during server procurement. Once a server is racked and powered, the system automatically evaluates the equipment and populates the Layered Tech inventory, making the server immediately available to both customers and partners. Customers can buy servers directly through Layered Tech’s Web site at, and a new open API, created by Layered Tech, will allow partners to display inventory and coordinate sales in real-time from their own Web sites.

“Developing Astro was a companywide commitment involving significant financial investment and a year of constant effort from our very talented development team,” said Layered Tech CEO Jack Finlayson. “Layered Tech has focused on making the right investments at the right time, and Astro fits within that strategy. We will continue creating and delivering the services and solutions that help our customers’ businesses succeed.”

The system’s new automation functionality enables far more than provisioning and inventory management. It also gives customers the option of bundling managed services, such as Layered Tech’s unique DEFCON server management program, which delivers tiered levels of security, support, monitoring and specialized software for both dedicated and virtual machines.

Beginning in February, it will also completely integrate with Layered Tech’s newly updated centralized client management portal, called Encompass, allowing customers to easily manage their account, request support, reboot servers and access other critical information such as bandwidth graphs, alerts and notifications.

“Our newly revamped system is truly one of a kind. First we successfully integrated several disparate back-end systems into a single unified platform – something that truly differentiates us from other hosting companies. Then we fully automated it,” said John Pozadzides, Layered Tech’s chief marketing officer. “As we fully enable all of the servers throughout our network, our clients will reap the benefits of the world’s most advanced hosting infrastructure.”

Current partners should contact their account manager for more information, and those interested in becoming a Layered Tech partner should contact Layered Tech’s sales team at 1-866-LT-Hosting (1-866-584-6784) or
