“Artisan Infrastructure, together with companies like Mitel, is revolutionizing the way service providers can enter and profitably compete in the hosted VoIP business,” Hierholzer said. “We are unaware of any other wholesale only provider that offers infrastructure-as-a-service together with a comprehensive solution neutral ecosystem of cloud solutions; this is a game changer.”Artisan Infrastructure customers can pick and choose their own solutions from a catalog of solution templates. Artisan Infrastructure does not sell or resell solutions it houses in its virtual private data center. Service providers maintain separate business relationships with Artisan Infrastructure for IaaS and with integrated software vendors for SaaS offerings. Artisan Infrastructure’s vPDC provides a secure, multi-tenant, and highly available infrastructure-as-a-service platform that allows solution providers to architect, implement, and provide their own cloud solutions. Solution providers maintain complete security, control and autonomy while managing their own cloud solutions. By partnering with Artisan, solution provider customers save significant architectural and planning time; eliminate up-front and ongoing capital costs, and completely minimize the complexity of building and maintaining their own best-of-breed, geographically redundant data centers that infinitely scale.
