Telefonica Central America Signs Exclusive Agreement with iNNERHOST to Provide Complex Managed Hosting and Applications to its Corporate Customers

The latest hosted Microsoft applications for building, deploying and managing Web-based solutions will be available to Telefonica customers in Guatemala and El Salvador



Miami, FL — Telefonica Central America, an affiliate of The Telefonica Group, a leader in the telecommunications market in Spanish and Portuguese speaking markets, announced the selection of iNNERHOST, a global provider of managed hosting and application services as their exclusive partner in providing the latest hosted Microsoft applications to their customers in Guatemala and El Salvador.

As part of this agreement, iNNERHOST will be providing the infrastructure for running Microsoft’s .net Enterprise suite of server applications for building, deploying, and managing scalable, integrated, web-based solutions and services for customers.

Telefonica can now bring such powerful applications to their customers such as the just-released Microsoft Office XP (TM). Office XP enables collaboration for everyone by revolutionizing the way people work with others on documents and by introducing Microsoft SharePoint Team Services (TM) to manage projects and activities via the Web. Customers are able to add on such features and functionality as Microsoft Commerce Server 2000 (TM), a comprehensive system for quickly building scalable, personalized business-to-consumer and business-to-business e-commerce solutions and Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server (TM) — a highly reliable, scalable, and easy to manage messaging and collaboration infrastructure.

“There is an enormous demand from our customers to truly harness the power of the Internet to not only increase productivity within their organization, but to also empower them to develop their online presence with full functionality,” said Angel Fernandez, Regional Director of Telefonica Central America. “iNNERHOST was the right choice for us, as their commitment to quality customer care has earned them an excellent reputation in the market.”

“Our partnership with Telefonica allows iNNERHOST the ability to expand its footprint in Latin America,” said Luis Navarro, Chairman and Chief Executive Office of iNNERHOST. “Early on, we made the strategic decision to partner with companies with existing infrastructures in place. Our participation is a complementary one, as we simply focus on providing the upper layer of the complete solution, or the complex management of hosted applications.”


iNNERHOST is a leading provider of complex managed hosting and application services for the Americas. As a provider of robust Microsoft-based solutions, iNNERHOST acts as a single point of engagement for its customers, providing the engine for building, operating and maintaining the infrastructure required to run and support crucial applications. iNNERHOST’s customers are able to capitalize on the latest technologies and packaged software applications quickly and cost-effectively so they can remain focused on their core business.
