iWeb's network reaches 50 Gbps

January 20, 2009
January 20, 2009 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – With its most recent expansion, iWeb’s network now totals 50 Gbps. In order to meet a constantly greater demand for bandwidth from clients with web-based applications such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and video services, the global internet hosting provider’s network has more than quintupled in the past year, growing from 9 Gbps to 50 Gbps today.

“The fact is that many companies today are using web-based technologies to keep IT spending under control, or to reduce spending. IT budget restrictions mean that the companies we work with are outsourcing their infrastructure to iWeb faster than planned in order to meet their targets.” says Eric Chouinard, iWeb’s President and CEO. He adds that “New technologies are increasingly web-based, and our clients require more bandwidth every month.”

The network combines a total of 9 major telecommunications carriers into iWeb’s award-winning network, which uses BGP routing to ensure performance and reliability.

“Combined with the ever increasing bandwidth requirements of newer applications, we are constantly surprised with some of the innovative solutions our clients have put online - things we would not have imagined 5 years ago!” says iWeb’s President of Products and Technology, Martin Leclair. “Capacity is scheduled to increase again shortly and continually throughout the coming year, which is a clear indication of the direction in which technologies are heading - everything is going online” confirms the enthusiastic co-founder of iWeb.

The Montreal-based company, whose financial results are scheduled to be published later this week, will be rolling out marketing campaigns to promote related bandwidth and dedicated server hosting services. Since becoming a public company in 2004, iWeb has been steadily growing to become one of Canada’s largest IP hosting firms.
