New RealPage Cloud Computing Division (the "Cloud") Formed
RealPage Cloud offers first Infrastructure-as-a-Service to the multifamily industry
(September 22, 2009) — RealPage, Inc (www.realpage.com), today announced an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering for owners and operators of multifamily properties. The service will be offered under the trade name RealPage Cloud Computing (or simply the “Cloud”, a new division of RealPage that will provide computing services to RealPage clients operating in two fully redundant data centers connected by dual 10 Gigabit dedicated fiber circuits.
“The RealPage Cloud is the single largest data center in the U.S. dedicated solely to the multifamily real estate industry,” said Jason Lindwall, president of RealPage Cloud Computing. “In addition to hosting all RealPage applications on hundreds of servers with more than 300 terabytes of storage and the fastest possible redundant connections to the Internet, we are also offering hosting services for popular third party accounting platforms.”
A cloud computing platform allows an owner or fee manager to outsource data center and applications hosting to a managed service provider with the economies of scale and expertise that drive costs down and improve overall performance and reliability.
“Corporate IT departments are under increased pressure to provide more services for less cost and it becomes challenging when technology costs are rising and IT professionals are becoming harder to find, train and retain,” added Lindwall. “We are addressing our clients’ need to cut costs and dramatically improve the reliability and capabilities of tightly integrated solutions. Our clients still retain control over their enterprise applications, but by hosting these applications in the Cloud, they enjoy the benefits of much higher performance and tighter integration to other applications.”
RealPage Cloud Computing enables owners to:
- Reduce hosting costs for third party applications
- Rely on a real-time disaster recovery center
- Improve application performance, due to extremely high-speed networks offered by RealPage. RealPage offers managed network services to thousands of locations around the country
- Realize improved and more reliable integration between third party accounting applications, all RealPage applications, as well as selected third party Cloud partner applications
- Utilize a quality assurance platform to test changes to any Cloud partner application before it is introduced into the production environment
