Vienna, Virginia – (via THE HOSTING NEWS) – August 30, 2005 –
AT and T has announced a $2.9 million agreement to provide web hosting for Convera Corp., a leading provider of search and categorization software for enterprises and government agencies.
Under the terms of two separate two-year agreements, AT and T will host and provide around-the-clock monitoring of Convera’s web indexing search platform. This next-generation search technology has been developed to add structure to the web through the use of proprietary taxonomies and ontologies, semantic analysis and deep knowledge resources capable of providing end-users with more relevant search results.
The technology also supports complex queries, offers built in video and image search, and provides geo-locational data. The hosting solution also supports Convera’s business continuity plan through redundancies and automatic data backup.
Patrick Condo, Convera’s Chief Executive Officer described the new partnership, “By hosting with AT and T, Convera will be able to deliver a robust search solution that meets the security and reliability demands of our customers. AT and T’s worldwide presence also provides Convera with future international growth possibilities.”
The hosting solution is provided from AT and T Internet Data Centers (IDCs) in Texas and Southern California. AT and T operates 26 IDCs around the world.
