New UK Cloud from PEER 1 & Tier 3 Utilizes VMware vCloud

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – A new cloud solution backed by VMware’s vCloud product was recently made available in the United Kingdom thanks to a partnership between hosting companies PEER 1 and Tier 3.

The move, announced on Tuesday, provides business clients with services including automatic back up, offsite replication and SLA.

“Combining the power of PEER 1 Hosting’s superior network and infrastructure with Tier 3’s cloud platform gives customers in the UK a virtual cloud solution that streamlines their IT operations so they can focus on taking care of business,” commented Tier 3 Founder Jared Wray in a press release.

The solution makes use of Tier 3’s enterprise cloud offering while relying of hosting from PEER 1. Users can finance the offering via what the companies say is a “pay as you use basis.” VMware has advertised its VMware vCloud as simplifying IT operations for cloud.
