Application Layer Managed Hosting
The first question I usually get asked in a meeting is "What is unique about Colocube since there are several managed hosting companies in the market." My usual answer is that "Colocube manages hosting at the application layer, and there just aren't that many hosting companies on the planet that have the expertise to do it. The other unique capability Colocube has is to architect and manage HPC (High Performance Computing) Clusters. Try and find another hosting company with expertise in HPC where power requirements routinely reach 25Kw per rack and with clusters of 40 racks or more."
Colocube is unique among hosting companies in the fact that we have an extensive background in enterprise software development and network design with a large software development and network design team behind us with our sister company, Glick Interactive (www.glickinteractive.com). In addition to enterprise software, Glick Interactive also specializes in data center automation, giving Colocube a highly efficient method of automating managed hosting services for our customers.
Understanding the complexities of enterprise applications down to the software layer allows Colocube to design networks for enterprise customers. Whether the network is for an entire division of a Fortune 500 company with data replication to multiple sites, a web 2.0 website or MMO game platform that must scale rapidly, Colocube has the technical expertise to recommend the most cost-effective use of hardware and software that most managed hosting companies don't.
In the current economic climate, companies are looking to trim hosting costs, capital investment for hardware, and staff to manage them. Colocube has been able to solve these problems with cost-effective solutions that range from network design, procurement, hosting and managed services. Colocube's premier partners provide value-adds in areas of harware and point-to-point services.
