eApps was founded in 1986 by three ex-‘Big 4’ consultants. It has been active in hosting services since the mid-1990s, with particular strengths in Java application hosting and enterprise collaboration, email and security services. eApps now uses the OnApp Cloud platform to power a range of scalable, on-demand cloud application hosting services.
In a video released today by OnApp, Richard Lingsch, President of eApps, describes his experience moving to the cloud with OnApp.
“Since we launched the OnApp cloud service we’ve been experiencing a steady growth, and not only are we attracting new customers, but the customers on our previous VPS service are migrating to the new cloud service,” he said. “The people at OnApp know the hosting industry… they know what we need to compete.”
The OnApp Cloud platform also gives eApps the opportunity to expand into new service areas, such as CDN.
“We have customers in over 125 countries. Latency is a big issue, and CDN is the solution to the latency problem. And the fact that the CDN capability is built right into the OnApp system, is very important to us,” says Lingsch. “We love the pay as you grow model. It matches our expenses to our revenues and allows us to put sophisticated services out there easily and quickly, without making a huge financial commitment.”
