XSP Picks Tier 3 to Host Data Centre and Technology Infrastructure Requirements

Share article

XSP has selected Tier 3, which calls itself an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider, as a strategic partner to host and maintain its data centre and technology infrastructure requirements. According to the vendor, Tier 3 will also provide an environment for hosting its User Acceptance Testing (UAT) and software automation labs.

The corporate actions processing vendor says that its selection of Tier 3 was predicated on its ability to rapidly provision and secure technology assets, as well as providing a “high degree of flexibility” with its On-Demand platform.

Dan Retzer, managing director and chief technology officer at XSP, says: “XSP requires an alternative to the traditional approach to IT infrastructure and data centre support that is capable of keeping pace with our demands for growth, security and flexibility. Most managed services providers only partly meet our needs. We realised that the technology reached sufficient maturity for us to seek a provider that specialises in virtual technology for greater uptime and performance. Tier 3’s platform provides a proactive approach to delivering our internal applications, as well as meeting our clients’ demands for streamlining the UAT and implementation process.”

XSP hopes to achieve a more streamlined implementation process for its clients via the partnership agreement. Accordingly, Tier 3’s On-Demand platform will allow the XSP solution to be configured and deployed in a purely virtual environment. The vendor claims this simplifies the deployment process by safely replicating virtual XSP images from the Tier 3 On-Demand platform to a client’s virtual server infrastructure without the duplicated effort and expense associated with migrating solutions from a development environment to a UAT environment and ultimately to production.

Jared Wray, principal at Tier 3, explains: “Tier 3 provides them with a highly scalable and secure enterprise class platform without the associated costly hardware and infrastructure acquisition normally associated with IT. Tier 3 has expertise in all aspects of providing IaaS and we handle all the details so XSP can focus on their core business.”
