Hosted Solutions Leads Discussion on Cloud Computing at Triangle Game Conference

April 12, 2010 by  

Web Host ToolboxRaleigh — Hosted Solutions, the East Coast’s premier provider of IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS), announced that the company will participate in the 2010 Triangle Game Conference (TGC) to be held this week in Raleigh.  TGC is the leading East Coast event for developers and professionals working in the interactive entertainment and serious game industries.

Hosted Solutions is a sponsor and exhibitor at the event.  Jeff Kramer, the company’s vice president of technology, will lead a discussion on leveraging the cloud to power games.  


For the past decade, Hosted Solutions has supported many leading technology companies, including a number of gaming companies.  “Game companies rely on Hosted Solutions because of the quality and reliability we provide, and the experience we have in delivering complex solutions,” said Christopher “Kip” Turco, Chief Operating Officer.  “With five SAS-70 Type II certified data centers, and a comprehensive suite of managed services, we’re incredibly well positioned to meet the bandwidth intense needs of gaming companies.”

Fallen Earth, the developer of the Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game, has chosen to colocate their network infrastructure equipment at Hosted Solutions’ data centers.

“By colocating our infrastructure with Hosted Solutions, we know that we will be up and running, every second of every day possible,” said Jim Hettinger, CEO at Fallen Earth. “We have players globally, for whom any downtime is unacceptable, and we needed a hosting provider who could offer us the maximum possible reliability. Placing our trust in Hosted Solutions enables us to concentrate on delivering the best gaming experience out there, while handing off our technical requirements to a trusted partner.”

Over the past year, Hosted Solutions has added dozens of customers to its Stratus Trusted CloudTM, a robust, enterprise-class cloud computing solution.   Hosted Solutions originally launched Stratus as a multi-tenant enterprise cloud but has since introduced two other versions – a private cloud and a hybrid option.   The hybrid cloud option essentially blends and maximizes the best of a multi-tenant cloud and a dedicated environment.  Customers are able to cross-connect their existing back-end resources such as databases and other supporting applications to the Stratus Trusted Cloud, providing them with greater flexibility. The hybrid option allows customers to leverage the Stratus Trusted Cloud for web front-end computing power and other resources like network, firewall, load balancing and web servers.   In addition, customers can cross connect Stratus cloud computing resources directly into their environment to handle overflow situations such as seasonal spikes that require excess compute capacity.

The Hosted Solutions session at TGC will be led by Kramer, an industry veteran with more than 25 years’ experience in both entrepreneurial and established environments.  Kramer has served in senior technology roles for Lulu.com, Motricity and IBM.   He’ll be joined by two members of the Hosted Solutions Architecture team who helped build the Stratus Trusted Cloud:

*Jonathan Sherman, a senior architect with nearly 20 years of experience in architecture, software development and Unix system administration roles with companies including Nortel, IBM, Bowe Bell Howell and Lockheed Martin.

* Josh Bonczkowski, a seasoned software developer with 14 years of experience. In addition to Hosted Solutions, he’s held senior engineering and architecture positions with NetApp and Motricity. His primary focus is building and managing applications within a cloud infrastructure.
TGC 2010 will offer attendees five extensive tracks comprised of panels, lectures and discussions on top industry issues and trends. Speaker sessions will run Wednesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 8 from 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
