Connectria Enables John Galt Solutions to Launch Its Software in the Cloud
St. Louis, MO (December 1, 2012) - John Galt Solutions, a forecasting and inventory management software provider, has selected Connectria Hosting to help launch its application as a Software as a Service (SaaS). Connectria was able to provide highly flexible contract terms along with a scalable solution that fit John Galt’s unique business model.
As John Galt continued to grow, they started to realize customers didn’t want to o acquire new servers to stand up the application. Connectria was able to bridge the gap by making it very easy for John Galt’s customers to set up the environment with no upfront costs. Connectria provided all the hardware and the back-end support, while John Galt supported their product.
Each customer is dedicated his/her own unique environment based on company size- from smaller servers to more robust systems with solid state drives (SSDs), and highly sophisticated servers. Whether large or small, all environments are fairly complex with a web, application, and database (SQL) components. Prior to launching the full solution, Connectria provided John Galt with a 3 month trial on a very high-end server that would typically require a long-term commitment (6 core CPUs, 48 GBs of memory and a RAID controller that can support SSDs). Less than 3 months later, John Galt’s newly web-enabled application was launched to its customers worldwide.
John Galt is now looking at additional virtualization options such as Citrix to further streamline its software delivery to its customers. Connectria’s offers a 90-day Citrix demo with no license fees, which will minimize costs throughout the testing phase.
