service honored for innovative deployment with news media
software company Digital Technology International
ATLANTA - February 17, 2012 - Internap Network Services
Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT
Infrastructure services, announced today that Technology
Marketing Corporation (TMC), a global, integrated media
company, has named Internap Private Cloud a recipient of
the 2011 Cloud Computing Excellence Award presented by
Computing Magazine. Internap is one of only 30
award winners out of more than 200 entries to be selected
for innovation and progress in advancement of the cloud.
TMC recognized Internap's private cloud service based on
its deployment with Digital Technology International (DTI),
a market-leading news media software company. DTI was
looking to construct a private cloud service to support its
transition from an on-premise software delivery model to a
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model. The
cloud-based delivery model enables DTI's news media
customers to quickly and efficiently deliver premium
content and advertising, as well as closely track audience
data and manage circulation and billing. By delivering
these services via private cloud, DTI is able to
consistently improve these revenue-generating solutions to
support their customers' evolving online business models.
"Our decision to embrace a SaaS business model has given
us, and our customers, a significant competitive edge in
the rapidly changing news business," said Steve Nilan, vice
president of marketing, DTI. "It's gratifying to be
recognized for our private cloud strategy, and work with
Internap, as an award-winning deployment."
Internap's high-performance private cloud service delivers:
A scalable cloud solution to accommodate growth
A secure, dedicated computing environment providing DTI
and its customers with peace of mind that data is safe
Physical infrastructure that provides the balance of
computing and storage resources so DTI can make new
features available faster without the hassle of procuring
and managing new hardware;
Infrastructure redundancy that is tailored to the
availability and costs required by DTI's business model;
Built-in capacity management and infrastructure planning;
A route-optimized, global network that ensures customer
content and advertising is delivered over the
fastest-performing Internet path - backed by a 100%
uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA).
"We are honored to be recognized as a Cloud Computing
Excellence Award winner, particularly since it highlights
the success of one of our cloud customers, DTI," said John
Freimuth, vice president of managed hosting and cloud
services at Internap. "DTI is an excellent example of the
unmatched infrastructure flexibility, customization and
performance that our private cloud can deliver to customers
- ultimately ensuring a positive experience for end users."
Internap's private cloud service is part of Internap's
comprehensive, flexible portfolio of enterprise cloud
solutions, which also includes VMware® and OpenStack-based
public cloud compute and cloud storage services.
"Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud
communications, TMC is proud to announce Internap as a
recipient of the first Cloud Computing Excellence Award,"
said Rich Tehrani, CEO of
TMC. "Internap Private Cloud has demonstrated innovation as
well as the ability to improve the cloud."
