Total Uptime Technologies Expands Globally with Peer 1 Hosting

Peer 1 Bolsters Reliability & Availability for Total Uptime’s Growing Customer Base

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Peer 1 Hosting, the global Web infrastructure and cloud hosting provider, announced today that Total Uptime Technologies has expanded its datacenter footprint into Peer 1’s facilities in San Jose, Calif., and Portsmouth, UK, to better serve global customers. For three years, Total Uptime has relied upon Peer 1 and its wholly-owned FastFiber Network to guarantee 100 percent uptime and unbeatable IT performance for its customers. Additionally, as a result of this successful cooperation, Peer 1 has welcomed Total Uptime into its Smart Partner Program.

Total Uptime helps online businesses and other Internet-centric organizations improve their customer experience and maximize revenue opportunities by ensuring their Web presence never falters. By creating virtual duplicates of customers’ hosting environments, Total Uptime can facilitate failovers to secondary facilities such as Peer 1’s in the case of a datacenter outage. In this role, Total Uptime has come to rely upon Peer 1 as a dependable hosting provider partner to support failovers for customers in North America and Europe.

Since 2011, not a single Peer 1 datacenter where Total Uptime colocates infrastructure has experienced an outage, ensuring an unwavering environment for Total Uptime’s customers when their primary hosting provider experiences performance issues. Because of this level of reliability, Total Uptime has now joined the Smart Partner Program, which creates mutually beneficial revenue streams for Peer 1 and its partners.

“The performance and availability that Peer 1 ensures for our customers is unmatched, and after recommending them to our customers for the last three years, we’re thrilled to enter into a formal partnership,” said Jonathan Hoppe, co-founder of Total Uptime. “The Peer 1 team has demonstrated their commitment to our goals and growth, and has the technical knowledge and capability to get us there. That’s really the winning combination for a hosting provider, and has enabled Total Uptime to deliver the best possible service to our customers.”

A key ingredient in Total Uptime’s services is Peer 1’s anycast failover capabilities, which route failovers to the topologically nearest node in a group of potential receivers, rather than to a unique endpoint. Anycast failovers ensure minimal latency and a seamless transition between sites, and is in high demand by many of today’s most performance-sensitive enterprises and online businesses. However, due to its highly technical nature and reliance on unwavering network connectivity, very few hosting providers can offer anycast failover. Peer 1’s anycast services ensure that its customers, and its partners’ customers, can maintain optimal performance in any of its facilities.

“Our partners are a huge part of our success, and we value the relationship we have developed with Total Uptime in the last three years,” said Kevin Paolino, senior vice president, revenue, Peer 1. “Most businesses today rely on impeccable Web performance, and any degradation or drops in service would likely result in a damaged reputation or even lost revenue. Failover capabilities, especially anycast, are therefore integral in any hosting environment. We look forward to continuing to expand this partnership with Total Uptime and ensure the best possible performance for its customers.”

About Total Uptime

Total Uptime Technologies, LLC is a privately held provider of cloud solutions designed to help organizations achieve high availability in a demanding online world. Our multi-datacenter, multi-country cloud platform easily delivers on our uptime promise because it has been engineered from the ground up to be fast, flexible and resilient.

While other organizations were busy renaming their legacy solutions as “cloud” and dressing them up to take advantage of the latest hype, Total Uptime Technologies was engineering a true cloud platform that was multi-datacenter at its core. In our mind, cloud meant resilient, and resilient meant that we had to design an application that could span infrastructure at different datacenters in different geographies – continents apart. Only then would we be content with calling it “cloud”.
