Squiz UK today announced the launch of The Squiz Cloud; a private, fully managed cloud-hosting service to provide scalable, robust and cost-effective hosting of websites, online applications and the Squiz Web Experience Management (WEM) Suite. The Squiz Cloud cuts through complexity and allows pooled, on demand, WEM resources to be consumed as a service.

Squiz selected CA Technologies' 3Tera AppLogic cloud computing platform to facilitate rapid deployment of infrastructure and the Squiz Suite to customers in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering. Clients can create and manage websites and online applications using the cloud-based software, as well as publish and host them within the Squiz Cloud.

- Automated Healing & High Availability - full system redundancy with automated healing
