A: With our uniquely configured Hyper-V platforms, Layered Tech outperforms traditional VPS offerings generally available in the marketplace. We offer full virtual machines with complete control over everything, right down to the operating system. Customers now have a greater range of control than ever before, combined with a much higher degree of security and reliability.


Q: Can you share a little about other offerings Layered Tech provides?


A:  Layered Tech’s portfolio of offerings is quite comprehensive, from on-demand managed dedicated hosting and web services to virtualization and grid computing.  In fact, we are considered one of the leaders in virtualization solutions with our GridLayer product, which was one of the first commercially available virtualization computing solutions.  Learn more at >>
