Internap Data Center Colocation and Network Services Power OpSource Industry-Leading Software-As-a-Service (SaaS) Delivery Solution and European Expansion
Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ:INAP), a global provider of end-to-end Internet business solutions, announced today its Performance IP(TM) network and data center colocation services are being used by OpSource(TM), the leader in Web operations, to power their Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery solutions and European expansion. The Internap services support OpSource's comprehensive Web operations solution including OpSource On-Demand(TM), OpSource Billing(TM), and OpSource Connect(TM) as well as the company's growing business in Europe.
OpSource delivers SaaS and Web applications for on-demand businesses worldwide. The company's global customer growth and geographic expansion in Europe presented an opportunity to expand the services provided by Internap. OpSource originally used Internap's Performance IP network services as part of the global delivery of its Web operations solution. To meet rising demand from SaaS and Web 2.0 companies in Europe, as well as demand from U.S.-based customers for higher levels of support in Europe, OpSource selected Internap's London data center to ensure the most dependable and reliable application delivery and network connectivity.
"OpSource needed a reliable network solution to power its applications and a global data center platform to support our growth in Europe. We found both in Internap," said Don Barlow, senior vice president of operation for OpSource. "Internap's 100 percent performance service level agreement (SLA) and focus on superior customer service fits perfectly with OpSource's 100 percent uptime guarantee and 24x7 customer support."
Internap's data center colocation and Performance IP network offer businesses a unique, seamlessly integrated, and highly reliable technology infrastructure to run their most demanding and mission critical applications and Web sites. These solutions are based on Internap's patented MIRO (Managed Internet Routing Optimizer(TM)) technology and a global network of Private Network Access Points (PNAPs) and enterprise-quality data centers. Internap services are backed by an industry-leading 100 percent uptime service level agreement (SLA). The result is Internap customers like OpSource can provide superior service to their customers for even the most demanding Internet applications.
"Software-as-a-Service or SaaS is one of the most significant developments in the IT industry in the last 10 years and OpSource is at the forefront of this new software delivery model," said James P. DeBlasio, chief executive officer at Internap. "OpSource provides its customers a turn-key application solution to turn software into a billable service and Internap provides a turn-key network and data center solution to power OpSource."
OpSource(TM) delivers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Web applications for on-demand companies, with hundreds of applications, millions of users and billions of transactions supported daily.
