Stocks in this article: ELNK

"With EarthLink Cloud Hosting, we eliminated the need to add infrastructure or engineering resources to scale our operations, while reducing our annual costs by an estimated 16 percent," said Buck. "We're able to keep our team very focused on profit-generating technology advancements, bringing new platform enhancements to market faster and keeping ahead of the competition while staying lean."

With EarthLink, iIT can also add or remove server space without paying for more than it needs. Moving forward, as iIT adds new clients, the company's automation platforms will create custom virtual machines and on-demand cloud workspaces with all of the applications and end user needs via integration with EarthLink's myLink™ IT Services Center.

"EarthLink Business is committed to simplifying IT complexity," noted Michael Toplisek, EarthLink Executive Vice President of Products and Marketing. "For customers like iIT, with our Cloud Hosting solution we can streamline IT environments with flexible, agile service delivery through virtualization. We worked closely with iIT to design a customized solution to meet its specific business requirements. This unique combination of integrated solutions and personalized service helps businesses improve productivity, manage change, minimize risk, and improve their IT infrastructure, data networks and voice communications."

iIT's Buck agrees, "We feel our products and platform are unique, and iIT truly appreciates the dedication, collaboration and customized approach that EarthLink provides. Any partnership comes down to people and execution. In the end, that's what we bought with EarthLink, the out-of-the-box, flexible thinking and willingness to get it done," added Buck.
