independenceIT Selects EarthLink for Virtualized Cloud Hosting, Reduces Annual Costs by 16%

When fast-growing information technology services company independenceIT (iIT) chose EarthLink for virtualized Cloud Hosting services, we shared the news by issuing a press release and publishing a new iIT Case Study. EarthLink enables iIT to deliver Cloud Workspace™ and application platforms to their clients, improving the performance of its virtualized platform and allowing their internal IT team to focus efforts on development, support and enhancements rather than data center management.  Utilizing EarthLink’s Cloud Hosting service, network infrastructure, and data centers frees iIT’s developers and systems engineers to bring new and enhanced solutions to market.

“With EarthLink Cloud Hosting, we eliminated the need to add infrastructure or engineering resources to scale our operations, while reducing our annual costs by an estimated 16 percent,” said Charles Buck, iIT Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. “We’re able to keep our team very focused on profit-generating technology advancements, bringing new platform enhancements to market faster and keeping ahead of the competition while staying lean.”

To have such a leading-edge IT company select EarthLink is a huge vote of confidence in the reliability, performance and security of our solution. Two reasons cited in their decision were improved performance and the ability to more keenly dedicate its IT teams on development, support and enhancements rather than data center management.

Flexibility, scalability and an intense focus on customer care also gave iIT an appreciation of its EarthLink account team.

“We feel our products and platform are unique, and iIT truly appreciates the dedication, collaboration and customized approach that EarthLink provides. Any partnership comes down to people and execution. In the end, that’s what we bought with EarthLink, the out-of-the-box, flexible thinking and willingness to get it done,” shared Buck.

Earlier this year, EarthLink and independenceIT also signed an agreement enabling EarthLink to offer iIT’s Cloud Workspace solutions to customers as a part of EarthLink’s IT Services product suite. So this latest development further deepens our mutually-beneficial relationship and will greatly benefit customers of both companies.

Consider how EarthLink can help your overstretched IT team focus on priorities that improve your customer experience and bottom line rather than continual investments in hardware and engineering.
