Internap Honored for Best Cloud Computing Service in the 2012 Golden Bridge Awards
Agile Hosting Service wins gold for ability to massively scale diverse applications worldwide
ATLANTA – October 18, 2012 – Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, has won top honors in the Golden Bridge Awards for its Agile Hosting Service, selected among 16 finalists as Best Cloud Computing Service in the New Products and Innovations category. The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams from every major industry in the world. This is Internap’s second Golden Bridge Award; the company won first place in the Performance Optimization category in 2011.
Introduced in April 2012, Internap’s Agile Hosting Service enables enterprises to instantly scale both virtual cloud and “bare metal” (physical) IT Infrastructure across a global footprint to meet diverse and rapidly growing business and application demands. Backed by robust automation, an easy-to-use online storefront allows customers to self-provision popular bare-metal configurations in minutes, providing cloud-like flexibility from physical servers.
Fully-hybridized, the Agile Hosting Service allows virtual and physical servers to be seamlessly mixed to meet specific application requirements. It offers customers the convenience and scalability of a public cloud offering combined with the added security and performance of dedicated, physical infrastructure. The integration of Internap’s Performance IP™ transit service with patented route-optimization technology ensures that hybrid traffic is delivered over the fastest, most reliable Internet path.
“The Internet is placing increasing demands on IT Infrastructure, with change being the only constant. As a result, organizations are seeking solutions that can deliver a combination of flexibility, high performance and cost-effectiveness,” said Zachary Smith, vice president of hosting at Internap. “Our Agile Hosting Service delivers on all of these fronts, allowing customers to instantly scale a wide range of web applications using best-fit infrastructure – in line with changing global business demands.”
More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industries worldwide participated in the product review process, and their average scores determined the 2012 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were honored during the awards dinner on October 2, 2012, in San Francisco, which was attended by the finalists, industry leaders and judges.
