Hatsize is a Calgary company that provides cloud automation software for hands-on demos and training for a number of global companies. They’ve just announced a new worldwide network of Hatsize private clouds that leverages three global datacenters in Europe, Asia, and North America. This means no matter where users are located, they will experience optimal performance and minimal latency. On average, Hatsize customers report a 4- to 5-fold increase in speed for users based in Europe and Asia.
“To ensure that our customers around the world always experience the best possible performance – even when they use thousands of sessions concurrently - we created the Hatsize worldwide network of private clouds.” says Sue Miller, Hatsize CEO, “Our customers are extremely happy with the improved experience they receive globally and the ability to apply their licenses as needed to the various locations.”
As of today, Hatsize has a worldwide network of private clouds based on three, fully-operational datacenters in North America, Europe and Asia. This network can currently support more than 100,000 sessions per month. Hatsize has gone to great lengths to ensure every customer’s data is secure. To quote Hatsize directly,
“The global datacenters utilize premium infrastructure including state-of-the-art the highest level of reliability including minimum N+1 redundancy for every power system; biometric scanning; "lights out"/opaque cages, video and infrared surveillance; intrusion-detection scanning and security audits. Also, customer data is firewalled and partitioned so that customers cannot access each other’s data.
In addition, the three datacenters are linked to provide failover, backup, and disaster recovery support to ensure seamless delivery of both on-demand and scheduled sessions globally.”
Hatsize has already provided over 2 million hours of cloud-enabled demo and training sessions for the world’s most successful technology companies including IBM, Juniper, Sun Microsystems and Symantec.
