Hosted Solutions, the East Coast's premier data center and managed services provider announces today that Measurement Incorporated, one of the nation’s leading providers of educational and professional assessment services and technologies, has selected Hosted Solutions to provide its managed hosting needs for the next three years. The Durham, NC-based corporation determined the need for securing a partner who could provide best practice recommendations and guidance in regards to hardware and database configuration, and 100% network uptime on a fully managed enterprise infrastructure to support their web based platform. The decision utilizes Hosted Solutions secure network to provide reliability, security, and availability to Measurement Incorporated’s technology hardware and applications.
Measurement Incorporated is receiving Hi-Touch managed dedicated servers, managed firewall, managed load balancing, SQL database administration services, managed backups, and network connectivity, which are monitored and maintained by Hosted Solutions at its Raleigh Data Center facility. In providing all of the services, Measurement Incorporated is entrusting Hosted Solutions to manage a number of mission critical applications.
Dr. Kirk Ridge, Vice President of Software Products with Measurement Incorporated said, "Our business and our solution have both matured to a point where we needed a more complete set of hosting services. We've developed a broad line of testing solutions, and we needed a partner like Hosted Solutions to aid in delivering a more comprehensive set of SLAs as our products increasingly become more automated. Hosted Solutions 100% percent network uptime guarantee and SAS-70 type II certification were key factors and fundamental requirements; but their expertise goes well beyond the basics by also providing excellent customer support across other facets of our IT needs. Hosted Solutions also embraces a collaborative working relationship that's extremely valuable in helping us deliver a quality solution."
