Layered Tech …“the leading provider of next generation, on-demand grid computing and hosting solutions” …Catering to entry and enterprise-level customers (recently launched) the first worldwide release of Windows 2008 with Microsoft Hyper-V hosted on dedicated or virtual servers >> 
              
Given the buzz Hyper-V has created, we ask John Pozadzides, the company’s VP and CMO, about this new technology’s benefits for hosts and hosting customers.
           
Q: You’re one of the first to offer Hyper-V.  Can you offer a brief description of Hyper-V.
            

A: As a key feature of Windows Server 2008, Hyper-V allows virtualization of multiple operating systems (including Windows and Linux) all on the same server. The technology provides a scalable, reliable and highly available virtualization platform along with a single set of integrated management tools to manage both physical and virtual resources. Windows Hyper-V also offers large memory support and provides backup/restore, snapshotting and easy transition of virtual servers from one physical server to another.

          

Q: What benefits do end users get from Hyper-V?  

             

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 www.thegridlayer.com >>
