9/2/2009

Now Recognized as Having Most Comprehensive Services Portfolio in the Hosting Industry

Ashburn, VA – September 02, 2009 – Carpathia Hosting, the leading provider of enterprise managed hosting services for enterprises and federal agencies, announced today it has acquired ServerVault, a Dulles, Virginia based managed hosting provider specializing in delivering the most secure, compliant hosting solutions to commercial enterprises and federal agencies.

The acquisition comes fifteen months after Spire Capital acquired Carpathia Hosting with a veteran management team focused on growing the company to a significant player in the hosting industry. With the acquisition of ServerVault, Carpathia Hosting will add:

  • Expanded Services Portfolio. A suite of services aimed at providing the most secure, compliant colocation, managed services and cloud services will immediately be available to Carpathia Hosting customers.
  • Industry Expertise & Depth. The Carpathia Hosting sales force will nearly double along with the addition of an impressive roster of employees primarily in the areas of systems engineering and datacenter operations.
  • Long-term Customers & Partnerships. The combined entity will boast a roster of high-profile long-term customer and partner relationships in the enterprise and federal sectors.
  • New Datacenter in Northern Virginia. Termed “the Vault”, the datacenter is one of the most secure facilities in the country. The Tier III data center has immediate availability.

Most Comprehensive, Integrated Hosting Services Portfolio. Through its significantly expanded service offering and datacenter presence, Carpathia Hosting’s hybrid hosting solutions deliver all the benefits of traditional dedicated managed hosting, while simultaneously offering the flexibility, scalability and cost effectiveness inherent in cloud technology. The full services spectrum – from colocation to managed hosting and cloud computing to datacenters that meet stringent federal security mandates – is supported by a team of technically proficient professionals who continually help customers meet the goals and requirements of their specific environments.

Significant Industry Leader.The acquisition of ServerVault further accelerates the significant organic growth Carpathia has experienced over the last severals years – growth that has been fueled by innovative hosting solutions and a strong management team.

Financial Strength. With five consecutive years of profitable growth, the ServerVault acquisition further enables Carpathia Hosting to continue its trend of significant, profitable growth.

Unparalleled Customer Service. Carpathia Hosting consistently delivers an experience that exceeds customers’ expectations, coined the “E3 Promise”. Underpinning this philosophy is the Carpathia Services Platform, a dynamic delivery platform that scales to meet customer demands while ensuring uniform, consistent quality of service across all Carpathia Hosting services.

Seasoned, Experienced Management Team. Carpathia Hosting’s leaders are seasoned executives with extensive backgrounds building and managing successful global services organizations. The DNA of Carpathia Hosting is grounded in a culture where every employee consistently strives to deliver an experience that exceeds customers’ expectations.

Most Comprehensive, Integrated Hosting Services Portfolio. Through the acquisition, Carpathia Hosting extends its industry-leading portfolio. One of the most compelling advantages for customers is the flexibility that Carpathia Hosting delivers with a combination of traditional colocation, managed hosting services and on-demand cloud solutions – now with added security and compliance alternatives. This hybrid approach maximizes client investments and eliminates the potential to force clients into a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution, and more relevantly maps to a typical organizations’ range of IT infrastructure needs.

Foundational Services. Foundational services allow customers to easily migrate from a corporate datacenter to a Carpathia facility, allowing maximum flexibility in choices of equipment and a la carte services. At the core of foundational services is colocation, which can be delivered using customer or Carpathia-acquired equipment.

Managed Services. Managed services allow customers to remove the headaches of day-to-day operations of IT infrastructure. In this form of hosting, Carpathia provides the hardware and full management of the operating system and network environment with an array of optional services.

Cloud Services. Cloud services allow customers to take advantage of the latest advances in cloud computing technology. Carpathia delivers fully-managed cloud solutions, so customers are assured the same degree of operational excellence provided with Carpathia’s foundational and managed services, which can be blended seamlessly.

“By combining ServerVault’s unmatched compliance-driven hosting solutions with Carpathia’s comprehensive services portfolio, customers have a unique opportunity to embrace the latest technology and architectures while maintaining federal and commercial compliance requirements,” said Jon Greaves, CTO of Carpathia Hosting. “Our unique approach to developing new hosting solutions allows us to remain consistently innovative while delivering the services our customers need in the most efficient manner possible, without sacrificing reliability and scale.”

Carpathia Hosting also announced today a suite of services aimed at delivering the most secure, compliant Foundational, Managed and Cloud services in the industry.
