Hosted Solutions Offers 'Stratus Trusted Cloud' Platform

RALEIGH, NC, June 8, 2009 - Hosted Solutions, the East Coast's premier provider of IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS), today introduced the Stratus Trusted Cloud, a robust, enterprise-class cloud solution that dramatically improves the efficiency and availability of IT resources and applications for small- and mid-sized enterprises.

Stratus offers a massively scalable, multi-tenant infrastructure that enables customers to access a secure, enterprise-class cloud environment with built-in high availability and automated resource balancing. As a result, businesses can move faster and control costs without compromising availability or security. This is of particular benefit to small- and mid-sized enterprises, which might normally be able to afford the costs associated with such high-end infrastructures. Moreover, Stratus is designed to provide an added level of assurance to companies that their data and entire infrastructure is being administered in a trusted manner, acting in accordance with a full range of governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) regulations.

"Working with major Hollywood studios, media companies and advertisers requires us to work with large amounts of video data. As part of our work, we need to be able to rapidly scale up our access to more storage space and processing capability," said Matt Berry, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of DigitalSmiths. "Trying to do all this in house can take time, money and detract us from focusing on our core capability.

"By introducing the Stratus Trusted Cloud, Hosted Solutions will enable us to simply and automatically get the resources we need in less time and at a fraction of the cost. We also have the added benefit of dealing with a reliable, trusted partner who we know has our best interests in mind," Berry added.

Hosted Solutions has partnered with market leaders VMware, Sun, EMC, Cisco, F5 and Juniper to deliver Stratus Trusted Cloud. Since it is built on the industry's most robust, scalable, fully redundant architecture, Stratus delivers unmatched performance, availability and security with 99.99% SLAs. By making this service available, Hosted Solutions is leveraging its proven experience in hosting production environments for more than 80 percent of its 800 customers, including household names and market leaders such as Belk, Atlanta Falcons, Channel Advisor, Lowe's Motor Speedway, Sony Ericsson, Motricity, and more. The company will also bundle its "hi-touch" consulting approach, allowing clients to design and implement customized solutions that meet their specific requirements, instead of the "shrink-wrapped" approaches frequently offered by its competitors.
