Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider (IaaS), based in Austin, TX, believes that providing outsourced services to the outsourcers themselves is a market niche that no one is currently addressing. Service providers would be interested in a platform for their product or service that is designed to make it easy for them to develop, test, deploy and own their product or service. In addition they can allow someone else to deal with suppliers such as VMware, NetApp, HP, Arista, Brocade, and Cisco on their behalf so they can concentrate on their core business. The fact that this service might be less costly than something they built themselves would be a wonderful benefit. Artisan Infrastructure believes that it is the first IaaS provider to offer such a platform for service providers.
Artisan, founded by Brian Hierholzer, started in 2001 as a telephone services provider. "We understand the need for carrier grade, dial-tone levels of reliability and availability," says Brian Hierholzer, President and CEO of Artisan Infrastructure. Artisan Infrastructure has been designed using the same basic philosophy that drives the rest of the business: Use carrier-grade, best of breed, enterprise class technology products that are proven in thousands of implementations around the world.
Combining best-in-class technology with a set of people who are highly motivated and dedicated to providing the best customer satisfaction for service providers of all sizes is the crucial Artisan difference. The Artisan infrastructure team not only has great engineers and technology experts, but is driven by people with extensive backgrounds in the telecom, software and IT industries. Industry knowledge, technical expertise, and an exceptional commitment to customer support have laid the foundation for Artisan Infrastructure to become the leader in wholesale only infrastructure solutions.
