San Diego, California – (The Hosting News) – October 19, 2005 – Provider of advanced Internet hosting services, TextDrive, Inc., will launch a pioneering web 2.0 service running the Five Across Web Platform.
The new service enables users to create and maintain multi-page rich media websites, blogs and communities that provide advanced messaging and file sharing capabilities. Non technical users of the service can create and maintain web pages and web blogs that contain digital photographs, movies, spreadsheets, audio files or other multimedia assets.
Ryan Schwartz, CTO at TextDrive explained, ”We have been looking for a way to offer these kinds of services but until the Five Across Web Platform, there was nothing out there that provided this level of functionality and raw performance. We benchmarked the Five Across Web Platform against Apache and many other available servers and the Five Across server just blew them away, handling as many as 6 million page serves per second.”
Peter Karnig, Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Five Across added, ”We are really excited to be working with the team at TextDrive. They offer world class service and will provide state of the art Private Label hosted services for ISPs and others that need an easy to deploy and maintain solution.”
Founded in 2003, Five Across provides the Five Across Web Platform, a web publishing and blogging platform with advanced communication and collaboration functionality that makes it easy for business and personal computer users to publish and share information. Five Across is based in Palo Alto, Calif., and is backed by leading investors Adobe Ventures and Granite Ventures.
