Stocks in this article: ELNK

ATLANTA, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its nationwide IT services and data center network expansion, EarthLink, Inc., (NASDAQ: ELNK) a leading IT services and communications provider, today announced the opening of its newest data center on its next-generation cloud hosting platform, located at 50 NE 9th Street in Miami, FL. EarthLink's new Miami data center will enable the company to fulfill business demand for its highly-secure, comprehensive IT solutions including cloud hosting, Cloud Workspace, managed security, colocation, Cloud Server Backup  and application solutions in South Florida.

One of the first EarthLink customers in the new Miami data center is SuperClubs, pioneers in all-inclusive resorts, including Breezes, Rooms on the Beach and the Negril Villa. With an IT staff in South Florida supporting a user base throughout the Caribbean and Latin America, SuperClubs selected EarthLink for a comprehensive virtual data center solution with Platinum-level Managed Hosting and data center firewall security. 

Today, Anthony Cheng, SuperClubs IT Director, spoke about his company's decision to virtualize with EarthLink at EarthLink's complimentary 'Join the Cloud Evolution' seminar at the J.W. Marriott Marquis Hotel. The event showcased how services such as Cloud Hosting, Dedicated Exchange and Data Center Firewalls help businesses improve cost structures and mitigate risk. Industry experts from Cisco and NetApp joined SuperClubs as speakers at this informational event.

"We selected EarthLink because its team was creative and flexible in creating a customized, stable and cost-effective virtualization solution. With EarthLink as our partner, we are realizing our objectives of reducing data center costs, avoiding expensive hardware capital purchase and software licenses, and managing our security risk," said Cheng. "We look forward to bringing even more core applications to EarthLink's Cloud Hosting service in future. Outsourcing with EarthLink enables me to focus my IT team on delivering business-critical processes, while still keeping the right mix of expertise on staff."
