Chicago, IL (Gawkwire) February 21, 2013 – WiredTree (www.wiredtree.com), a leading managed virtual private servers (VPS hosting), dedicated servers, and hybrid servers provider, has been announced as the recipient of the 2013 Excellence in Information-as-a-Service award at Parallels Summit. The award, given to an organization that demonstrates year-on-year growth and customer satisfaction, recognizes WiredTree as a major figure in the field of managed VPS hosting.
“We are very pleased to have been recognized by Parallels in this way,” says Zac Cogswell, President of WiredTree. “We attended Parallels Summit 2013 to meet colleagues from the web hosting and IT industries and build relationships with new and existing customers. To receive this significant award is a real honor, particularly given the strength of the other finalists in our category.”
Now in its fourth year, the Parallels Partner Awards ceremony is an annual event that takes place at Parallels Summit. To qualify for the awards, companies must become Parallels Partners after demonstrating a commitment to the Parallels platform and expertise in using it effectively. The Excellence in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) award goes to a service provider that has successfully leveraged Parallels products for IaaS, resulting in year-on-year growth in financial terms and customer satisfaction. Since 2006, WiredTree has grown to become a leading brand in managed hosting, with services including virtual private servers (VPS hosting) and hybrid hosting plans. This success has been dependent on the intelligent use of virtualization technology from Parallels.
“We selected Parallels as our preferred virtualization platform very early in our growth, and have worked to become experts in getting the most from this technology,” says Cogswell. “We have grown consistently in terms of recognition, becoming an INC500-listed company and expanding our services over time. Our customers know they can depend on our virtualized services to deliver the best possible performance, high uptime, and unparalleled reliability. Receiving this coveted award is an excellent way to reward our entire team and the work they have put in to create high-quality hosting.”
WiredTree currently uses Parallels Virtuozzo for virtualization. Virtuozzo is responsible for handling virtual servers as part of VPS hosting and managed hybrid hosting plans, two of the most popular services WiredTree provides. In addition to using Virtuozzo effectively as the foundation for these services, WiredTree works closely with Parallels to push the platform even further. Recently, WiredTree collaborated with Parallels to improve the efficiency and performance of Virtuozzo backups, delivering improved speed and more responsive hosting across every single virtualized service. It is this forward-thinking, determined approach to Virtuozzo that sets WiredTree apart from its competitors.
“We use Parallels Virtuozzo, but we go beyond the basics,” says Cogswell. “Today, our Virtuozzo implementation is an advanced, customized solution that gives our customers an even better experience. The Excellence in IaaS award recognizes our work in this area formally, while the reaction from our existing customers shows our relationship with Parallels has a real, tangible impact on the quality of our services.”
Since 2006, WiredTree has grown to become a leading managed hosting provider with satisfied customers around the world. Now, as Parallels recognizes WiredTree’s use of Virtuozzo, the company is set to continue its impressive growth for years to come.
