Using OpSource On-Demand, StageGold.com empowers its one million-plus users to manage their online videos in a secure and scalable environment.
iAct chose OpSource On-Demand for its unmatched scalability, performance and support. With a quickly growing user base, StageGold.com is a new video hosting and branding site that provides online tools for publishing and sharing videos on the Internet. Users upload their videos with StageGold.com's upload manager, or collect links of their favorite videos from elsewhere on the Web. Breaking away from traditional video sites, StageGold.com provides a unique online Skinbuilder that empowers users to create their own custom-branded video players and then publish videos and playlists inside their own video players to any Internet site, blog or social network.
Alan Larsen, CEO of iAct, said, "OpSource impressed us with its ability to provide a scalable virtual network with a superior focus on support, quality and dependability. Before we switched to OpSource, we had followed a more traditional approach of shared and dedicated servers. Working with OpSource has made it much easier to focus on our business of delivering unique branded video solutions."
Treb Ryan, CEO of OpSource, said, "We are proud of our ability to provide our customers across all industries with the most secure and stable on-demand services on the market. We see tremendous growth opportunities for SaaS as a whole and OpSource On-Demand in particular as social networking thrives and online video gains more momentum every day."
