March 10, 2009 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Web host Hosted Solutions (www.hostedsolutions.com) has been chosen as the official IT infrastructure for the 143rd build for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, it was reported recently. The company, which bills itself as the East Coasts premier data center and managed services provider will provide services to support the official website and central registration database for ABC Televisions Emmy-award winning hit reality show.
The show will feature the northeastern area of North Carolina and provide a deserving family with an extreme home makeover. A number of companies and volunteers will gather in Edenton, North Carolina, USA to implement an intense, concentrated one-week build of a new home that will make a miracle happen for a deserving family. To support the show, Hosted Solutions is donating a fully redundant infrastructure consisting of fully managed firewalls, load-balancing, server and storage infrastructure supported by an enterprise class data center and multi honed bandwidth across multiple tier 1 providers.
Were thrilled to support such a great cause, explained Hosted Solutions Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Rich Lee. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is an incredible show. The way they rally an entire community to come together and support a family in need is truly amazing. The websites for each Extreme Makeover show experience tremendous traffic between visitors and volunteer registration. They needed a robust platform that could support substantial spikes in traffic. We handle high volume like that for clients every day so we were well equipped to help.
Hosted Solutions provides data center and managed hosting services catering. The company operates SAS 70 Type II Certified facilities in Boston Massachusetts, USA, Charlotte North Carolina, USA, Raleigh North Carolina, USA, and Cary North Carolina, USA.
