Peer 1 Hosting, a Web infrastructure and cloud hosting provider, recently announced that Total Uptime Technologies, a provider of cloud solutions, is the newest member of its Smart Partner Program. As a member, Total Uptime will leverage Peer 1 Hosting’s data centers in San Jose, Calif., and Portsmouth, UK, to better serve global customers. Total Uptime has been using Peer 1’s wholly-owned FastFiber Network.
Total Uptime helps organizations achieve high availability in a demanding online world. The company’s multi-datacenter, multi-country cloud platform easily delivers on their uptime promise because it has been engineered from the ground up to be fast, flexible and resilient. Apart from other services in the data centers, Total Uptime will also leverage Peer 1’s anycast failover capabilities, which route failovers to the topologically nearest node in a group of potential receivers, rather than to a unique endpoint.
“Our partners are a huge part of our success, and we value the relationship we have developed with Total Uptime in the last three years,” said Kevin Paolino, senior vice president, revenue, Peer 1. “Most businesses today rely on impeccable Web performance, and any degradation or drops in service would likely result in a damaged reputation or even lost revenue. Failover capabilities, especially anycast, are therefore integral in any hosting environment. We look forward to continuing to expand this partnership with Total Uptime and ensure the best possible performance for its customers.”
In related news, Cogeco Cable Inc., Peer 1 Hosting’s parent company, announced today a five-year partnership with Laurentian Bank, a financial institution with activities across Canada, to manage the company's corporate telecommunications program. Cogeco Data Services' wholly-owned all-optical transport platform supports services and speeds of up to 10 Gigabits and beyond, and includes around the clock proactive monitoring and support features that provide an effective, secure and reliable service that integrates voice, data and multimedia applications in an unified architecture.
