nPhase Partners with Terremark to Deliver 99.999 Percent Uptime as New Standard for Its Advanced Machine-to-Machine Cloud PlatformBy Nphase, PRNE
Wednesday, December 8, 2010
SAN DIEGO, December 9, 2010 - nPhase, a Verizon Wireless and Qualcomm Incorporated joint venture, today
announced it will deliver among the highest levels of availability for
machine-to-machine (M2M) enterprise management software, "five nines,"
leveraging nPhase's advanced M2M cloud platform and Terremark's
industry-leading IT infrastructure services. nPhase's M2M services will
provide standard performance levels of its M2M cloud platform 99.999 percent
of the time–24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Implementation will be
completed in the first quarter of 2011.
"Verizon Wireless' customers demand data reliability, and we know it is a
top priority for M2M connectivity. We have worked closely with nPhase to
bring a new level of reliability to the nPhase M2M cloud platform, which will
help our customers receive a consistently high level of performance with
Verizon Wireless Machine to Machine services," said John Stratton, chief
operating officer, Verizon Wireless.
"We are making significant investments in the nPhase M2M cloud platform
in response to industry requirements and to support the high growth that is
expected in critical M2M applications such as in healthcare, energy,
transportation, consumer electronics, and financial services where failure is
simply not acceptable," said Steve Pazol, president of nPhase.
Availability is usually expressed as a percentage of uptime in a given
year. The difference between 99.9 percent and 99.999 percent availability,
for instance, is equal to approximately 8.76 hours of downtime a year versus
five minutes as shown in the below table.
Availability % Downtime per year Downtime per month Downtime per week 90% ("one nine") 36.5 days 72 hours 16.8 hours 99% ("two nines") 3.65 days 7.20 hours 1.68 hours 99.9% ("three nines") 8.76 hours 43.2 minutes 10.1 minutes 99.99% ("four nines") 52.56 minutes 4.32 minutes 1.01 minutes 99.999% ("five nines") 5.26 minutes 25.9 seconds 6.05 seconds
The nPhase advanced M2M cloud platform is installed and fully operational
through Terremark's best-in-class Highly Managed Hosting(TM) service. The
Terremark data centers that nPhase is leveraging are geographically redundant
and contain exact replicas of the entire infrastructure within the different
locations. nPhase's platform is performance-tuned and load-balanced to
dynamically disperse load within the infrastructure and maintain a
consistent, high level of performance during various load swings that are
anticipated in high-growth businesses.
"Terremark's commitment to delivering highly reliable, secure and
consistently available IT infrastructure services from massively connected,
strategically located datacenter hubs has distinguished our company as the
global provider of choice for organizations running business-critical
applications," said Manuel D. Medina, Terremark's chairman and CEO. "As
nPhase's trusted partner, we're proud to be playing a vital role as they set
a new standard in availability and reliability in the M2M sector."
