Hosted Solutions Named Channel Insider's 'MSP of the Year'

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Hosted Solutions, the East Coast's premier provider of IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS), has been named as Managed Services Provider of the Year by Ziff Davis Enterprise's Channel Insider publication.

The Channel Insider Bull's Eye Awards is a community-driven recognition of excellence of the vendors, executives, solution providers, products, advocates and communities that comprise the channel. Award winners--selected by Channel Insider's editorial team, members of the Channel Insider Alliance and industry experts--are lauded for their contributions to the channel community in the past year.

In awarding Hosted Solutions its Bull's Eye Award, Channel Insider's editors cited the company's multiple implementations of cloud computing-based managed services "to differentiate its program and to help it stand out in the market." The editors specifically noted Hosted Solutions' Stratus Trusted Cloud(TM), which it said allowed the firm to positively address "the concept of trust - a big question mark when customers are considering putting data in the cloud." The Stratus Trusted Cloud is a massively scalable, multi-tenant infrastructure that enables customers to access a secure, enterprise-class cloud environment with built-in high availability and automated resource balancing.

Channel Insider's editors also favorably referred to Stratus' recently introduced hybrid option, which blends and maximizes the best of a multi-tenant cloud and a dedicated environment. The hybrid option allows customers to leverage the Stratus Trusted Cloud for web front-end computing power and other resources like network, firewall, load balancing and web servers. In addition, customers can cross connect Stratus cloud computing resources directly into their environment to handle overflow situations such as seasonal spikes that require excess compute capacity.

Channel Insider's editors also cited Hosted Solutions' unique "Hi-Touch" consultative approach in working with its clients, developing solutions that meet their specific needs. The combination of superior service, along with partnerships developed with leading technology vendors such as VMware, Cisco, Sun, F5, EMC and more, have enabled Hosted Solutions to maintain rapid growth, and attract and retain top-tier clients such as Belk, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Atlanta Falcons, Channel Advisor, Motricity and more.

"We are honored by Channel Insider's recognition of our accomplishments," said Rich Lee, Hosted Solutions' Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "2009 was a very strong year for our business. We added a significant number of new customers to our portfolio across the country, completed multi-million dollar expansions of our Raleigh and Boston data centers and launched several new products, including our Stratus Trusted Cloud. Every one of our employees takes great pride in the trust that our clients place in us every day to host their IT infrastructure and protect their network and most valuable information assets. It's an honor for the entire company to be recognized with such a prestigious award."

The award is the latest honor for Hosted Solutions over the last 12 months. The company was named to the Inc. Magazine "Inc. 5000" list for the third year in a row, and was also a recipient of the "Fast 50" awards from the Triangle Business Journal for the sixth consecutive year. In addition, the company's Chief Executive Officer, Rich Lee, was honored as an "Impact Entrepreneur" and named "Business Leader of the Year" by Business Leader Magazine. Lee was also named Ernst & Young "Entrepreneur of the Year" for the Carolinas.
