Saxotech Moving to Software-as-a-Service Model.
Saxotech in Tampa, Fla., announced today its move to cloud computing, with a scalable managed-hosting environment for 24/7 operation of online business applications and infrastructure. The aim is to enable media companies to refocus resources and realize faster deployment times, better asset utilization, efficient systems optimization and cost savings.
General availability is slated for the third quarter of this year.
Unlike its "more expensive" previous hosted environment, Saxotech said that instead of costly servers, it will rely on a "resource pool of processing, storage and networking will allow capacity to be deployed on demand."
The hosted environment will provide complete redundancy to eliminate hardware-failure downtime. Additional capacity is always available, and automated resource balancing provides continuous monitoring to ensure that all applications always run at peak performance.
Saxotech's hosted service is located in Savvis' Atlanta climate-controlled data center, featuring power management, fire suppression, seismic engineering, physical security, and integration with Savvis' Tier 1 MPLS network and hosting footprint of 29 data centers globally.
Customers will gain greater control and flexibility, according to Saxotech. Additional benefits of the service include: round-the-clock monitoring by network specialists; bandwidth allocation sufficient for high traffic volume; the same level of Saxotech Professional Services support; the same Saxotech functionality without up-front hardware investment; access to the Saxotech Editorial system from a various operating system platforms and work in familiar Windows and Adobe environments; monitoring.
