There are three significant reasons why so many startups choose hybrid hosting from UnitedLayer:
Deep long-term experience working with startups, and top expertise with hybrid cloud environments
An infrastructure that includes multiple data centers and delivers ultra-high availability, bandwidth, connectivity, reliability and security
A business partner who handles the complexities, delivers whatever you need (and only what you need), and does it all at the lowest possible cost
Startups have to run fast and lean. They move rapidly and pivot as they learn. They can’t forecast their IT infrastructure needs. Decisions must be made on the fly. The flexibility, speed and cost containment aspects of a hybrid environment are custom-suited to a startup’s needs.
Today’s startups are delivering next-generation and mobile applications. These applications are web-oriented, with users expecting to access applications and data from a variety of sources, on a variety of devices – at any time, from anywhere. These applications need elasticity to handle sudden spikes in traffic. Hybrid clouds are designed to meet these requirements.
UnitedLayer delivers a hybrid cloud hosting platform that is robust – you can depend on it to accelerate application development and delivery; while it provides the level of security, performance, availability and scalability required.
UnitedLayer’s Hybrid Hosting Platform is uniquely suited to startups. Headquartered in San Francisco, we have long-term experience working with all types of startups. There’s always a new wrinkle or two, but we’ve tackled most of the issues you’ll encounter as a startup, and we have the in-house expertise (and the technologies) to help you quickly and cost effectively handle them as you grow to market leadership.
Our 200 Paul facility serves many high-tech, engineering and online content vendors, and is the leading data center for Bay Area and San Francisco colocation. Sited on bedrock, with Zone 4 construction, it’s the most geographically secure location in the Bay Area. More fiber optic cables connect 200 Paul than any other data center in the world. It hosts some of the biggest enterprises, some of the biggest social media companies, some of the biggest media companies, some of the biggest telecom carriers… and many startups.
Prior to launch, it makes economic and logistical sense for a startup to keep on premise, private cloud and public cloud resources all in the same building. United Layer easily accommodates that. Making a smooth transition from a startup to a young growth company can be rocky. The journey is much smoother when IT infrastructure can be maintained… with incremental capacity and functionality added as needed. With top-tier data centers in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Ashburn (VA), Las Vegas, Toronto and Vancouver – and multiple Tier-1 bandwidth providers – we have the infrastructure to support your business expansion.
