Atlanta, GA, United States, 2008/07/14 - Tulip Systems, Inc. announced today that it has just completed major infrastructure upgrades to meet the demand of an ever increasing marketplace and its ever growing client list.
“It is apparent that Data Center space in our hometown of Atlanta is quickly being absorbed. As a result, we are experiencing greater demand for our co-location capabilities. We are on top of the largest peering point in the South Eastern United States and are already operating both Tier I A and Tier II A centers here. Our new center is being launched as Tier III A”, said Nino Doijashvili, the company’s CEO.
Ms. Doijashvili continued, “We must have this kind of infrastructure. We can now offer it to companies in need of such a high level of performance”. She then announced the formation of a new operating unit, ATLDC, to manage this growing operation.
“Demand was rapidly catching up with our infrastructure’s ability to supply. With explosive growth in this marketplace, we had to expand our delivery capacity”, said Thomas Burling, CFO of Tulip Systems and newly appointed General Manager of ATLDC. Tulip has more than doubled the physical size of its facilities in Atlanta. Additionally, over 10 Gbit of connectivity to the internet has been added along with the latest Route Optimization equipment from Atlanta’s Internap. “With The BBN, we have some major upcoming live events, including some popular college sporting events. For that you’ve got to have a great deal of bandwidth”, Burling added.
Tulip Systems has dramatically expanded its operations to meet a growing demand for its services. Tulip has made a major entry into the Content Delivery market with recent partnerships with Pathfinder World Video, Black Broadcasting Network, New Tang Dynasty TV, Delantero Entertainment, and other content producers, providers as well as linear international television stations. Tulip delivers content across the internet and, more specifically, converts and delivers partner content for cellphone viewing. Tulip has created a new operating division to manage its content delivery and streaming platforms called NGCDN.
Tulip has also taken options on even more space, in anticipation of its soon to be launched IPTV system. “We have been working with a Set Top Box manufacturer to be able to take our internet based content delivery systems straight to the television screen without the need for a PC. This connection allows us to deliver quality as high as 1080i HD“ said Tulip CTO George Bokuchava. “We will then be able to offer a great variety of programming through our partnerships with content providers”.
Tulip operates under several brand names including ETTIX for its content delivery and its 2 newly formed divisions. “This enables us to offer our partners the exact solutions they need through a brand and team specifically assembled to meet that need.” said Louis Lewow, VP Sales and newly appointed NGCDN division president. “Whichever Tulip brand our partners align with, they receive the same high level of customer relations that has always been the cornerstone of our company”.
