Consistency. It’s a predictable guarantee and, in terms of technology, a wonderfully exciting promise.
Every year at 11:11 Systems, our global teams travel to our Houston headquarters for our company kickoff. During our recent event, one statistic floored us all: During 2014, 11:11 deployed a new data center every 2.4 months.
The reason we could deliver this? Consistency.
The 11:11 Cloud infrastructure is architected in a repeatable pod design, which means that we can support rapid deployments to serve our customer needs around the globe.
In addition, we can also scale rapidly to serve customer requirements within our existing locations.
Most importantly, due to this repeatable, proven design, our clients achieve consistent application and network performance within our infrastructure. This is true whether they are delivering applications from Los Angeles to users across the US, in London across EMEA, in Singapore across APAC, or executing disaster recovery across any of our eight global data centers.
Infrastructure to support SaaS clientele is especially important, as it allows our global SaaS clients to enter new markets with a scalable, repeatable, templated design, not only at the application stack level but also the infrastructure level. It’s all supported by 11:11’s repeatable and scalable design.
Time to market is significantly reduced, (we are taking hours and days instead of weeks and months) and the unknowns around performance are removed.
In effect, you build, test, refine, and deploy just once then roll the final application out across the locations. It’s reliable too, with a 100 percent SLA.
11:11 Private Cloud (designed in-house) enables you to build out, manage, and adapt your virtual infrastructure, providing insight into real-time analytics on both performance and billing levels across different locations from one place. It’s a constant form of management across multiple locations with one interface.
So, not only do you get consistent performance, but you also have consistent monthly costs for the delivery of applications to your end users.
Oscar Wilde once famously said. “consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.” Many of our global SaaS clients have over 400k devices reporting into their database, and others have warehouse management software that picks millions of products off shelves for delivery across the US and UK. We have the opportunity to observe their current achievements and plans for the future due the consistency and guaranteed performance within 11:11 Cloud. Mr. Wilde, we are afraid to not agree with you.
