3Tera highlighted in report on internal cloud solutions for its AppLogic Cloud Computing Platform

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- 3Tera(R), Inc., the leading innovator of cloud computing technology and utility computing services, announces today that Forrester Research, Inc. recognizes the AppLogic(R) Cloud Computing Platform as the "leading cloud infrastructure software offering available today" in their recent report, "Deliver Cloud Benefits Inside Your Walls," Forrester Research, Inc., April 13, 2009. As an independent research company, Forrester Research provides pragmatic and forward thinking advice to global leaders in business and technology.

Authored by a Forrester team and led by Principal Analyst James Staten, "Deliver Cloud Benefits inside Your Walls" highlights the findings from thirty vendor and user company interviews including Citrix, Google, HP, IBM, Sun Microsystems and VMware among others. Forrester defines internal cloud computing as "multitenant, dynamically provisioned and optimized infrastructure with self-service developer deployment, hosted within the safe confines of your own data center." The report included an evaluation of 3Tera's AppLogic Cloud Computing Platform.

"We are honored to be recognized in Forrester's internal cloud report, as 'the leading cloud infrastructure software offering available today,'" said Barry X Lynn, Chairman and CEO, 3Tera, Inc., and former Fortune 100 CIO operating huge datacenters for much of his career. "Our AppLogic Cloud Computing Platform enables companies to use the cloud to quickly deploy and operate even their most critical services and applications on a highly available, scalable and secure platform, while in full control of both their applications performance and their cloud computing environment."

More and more users are turning to cloud computing both in the public Web and behind their firewalls because it offers improved time to market and complete disaster recovery. One of 3Tera customers is highlighted in the report to illustrate improved cost effectiveness: "A large telecommunications company said it has an internal cloud, based on 3Tera AppLogic, with about 25,000 virtual servers today. 'Our primary drivers were operational and capital expense efficiencies and agility,' said a senior technology executive at the company. He added that the organization had already deployed wikis, intranet sites, and internal applications and that the cloud is already 30% more efficient than the company's traditional infrastructure and requires significantly less headcount to manage."
