Intelligent IT Infrastructure services’ provider Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP) recently publicized that it has been chosen to receive the 2012 Cloud Computing Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine. This award is given to companies in recognition of their efforts to promote cloud computing in the market through their excellence and innovation, delivering enhanced user experience to their customers through technological advancement.
Internap was selected for the award in acknowledgement of its Agile Hosting service, a global hybrid cloud solution that delivers optimal performance and can be scaled instantaneously, empowering businesses to make compatible combinations of “bare metal” physical and virtual cloud infrastructure that result in optimization of their multi-tiered web applications. This service enables businesses to accomplish web-scale within an individual, crossbred environment in an efficient manner, along with increasing application performance.
Learnvest, a leading website on personal finance and lifestyle, offers web-based tools and advice to help women manage and control their finances. In the latter part of 2011, Learnvest – because of growing concern over the website’s ability to support continuous growth – employed Internap’s Agile Hosting Service in its two principal markets – New York City and San Jose, California. As a result, the website is now able to meet the rising business and application demands by instantly modifying and providing for physical and cloud infrastructure.
With Internap, Learnvest was able to improve its multi-tiered financial services application by choosing the optimal platform – either cloud or bare metal – for each tier. Internap’s Performance IP™ transit service has also proved to be beneficial for Learnvest by incorporating its patented intelligent route-optimization technology, Managed Internet Route Optimizer™ (MIRO). Performance IP allows customers to quickly access Learnvest’s website and applications, ensuring reliability and 100% uptime guarantee, along with providing integrated storage that is available when needed, a ready-to-use, global Content Delivery Network (CDN) and round-the-clock customer support.
“TMC is proud to announce Internap as a recipient of the second annual Cloud Computing Excellence Award, recognizing its leadership in the advancement of cloud computing,” says Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC, publisher of Cloud Computing Magazine. “Internap’s Agile Hosting Services have demonstrated innovation as well as the ability to improve the cloud.”
This is the second time in succession that Internap has been selected as a Cloud Computing Excellence Award winner. In 2011, Internap was honored for its private cloud solution, which includes the distribution of its customer Digital Technology International. Cloud Computing Magazine’s October 2012 issue has published the winners of the 2012 Cloud Computing Excellence Award.
“Using our Agile Hosting platform, customers such as Learnvest are able to leverage hybrid cloud infrastructure services to meet their full range of application needs on demand, with one support contact, one invoice and a price to performance ratio that is unmatched by pure virtual cloud,” said Zachary Smith, vice president of hosting at Internap. “Internap is pleased to be honored by TMC for our cloud service offerings for the second straight year, and we will continue to bring the market cloud infrastructure services that allow our customers to scale their applications more effectively and efficiently.”
