AllDigital Expands Nationally on Latisys Platform

Digital Broadcasting Leader Deploys AllDigital Cloud Solution From Multiple Latisys Data Centers

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 13, 2014) -  Latisys, a leading national provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions, today announced an IT Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) agreement with AllDigital Inc., a leading provider of digital content management solutions.

AllDigital was recently recognized as one of Streaming Media Magazine's "Streaming Media 100," which honors the most innovative and influential companies in the online video industry. The company's content management platform, AllDigital Cloud, is an end-to-end digital broadcasting solution that offers users a scalable and secure platform to ensure delivery of the highest quality video and playback experience across mobile, desktop and digital TV. Powered by some of the fastest, most reliable technology on the market, clients can manage and control digital content for live events, video-on-demand, and linear programming -- from ingest to delivery -- all from one unified platform.

With a presence already established in Latisys' Denver data center, AllDigital is now establishing its west coast presence and has signed an agreement for critical infrastructure delivered from one of Latisys' southern California data centers. Future plans call for AllDigital to leverage the Latisys Cloud to extend into conventional virtual cloud environments that typically do not have digital media workflow origin services that AllDigital provides.

"In addition to providing the key hosting and network connectivity for our premium cloud services, Latisys provides a unified and geographically dispersed infrastructure platform allowing us to grow our business both nationally and incrementally," said Paul Summers, CEO and co-founder of AllDigital. "Our media and entertainment customers have some of the world's most demanding network and IT performance requirements, and Latisys has delivered a combination of performance, value and reach that we could not get from any other provider."

"The high-performance requirement of AllDigital's customers, combined with its regional expansion strategy, is a perfect fit for the Latisys platform," said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Latisys. "We look forward to working closely with AllDigital as it expands distribution for content owners and enterprises needing to deliver media assets and online services to a highly fragmented market of IP-enabled devices."

With high-density data centers located in every U.S. time zone, Latisys' national reach enables multi-site redundancy, managed backup and secure disaster recovery including cloud-based DR solutions. Latisys' Tier III facilities are designed for the business continuity of mission-critical operations -- offering the power, cooling, backbone network and managed services with an eye toward reducing capital expenditures for storage and ongoing maintenance.

In addition to providing PCI and HIPAA compliance, Latisys' data centers are operated under SSAE 16 (SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3) audited controls affirming Latisys' commitment to meet the highest standards for availability and security, while making sure all of the appropriate controls and safeguards are firmly in place.

Latisys has completed certification of Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 and Microsoft Hyper-V Replica for Latisys' cloud, hosting, and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) solutions.
