Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – December 5, 2008 – The Special Olympics of Northern California has deployed the INX Inc. firm, for Virtual Infrastructure Hosting Services in the production IT environment.
Steve Kaplan, VP of Data Center Virtualization for INX noted, ”Special Olympics Northern California is not only as a valued client, but an organization whose mission is one that we very much admire and support. We’re very pleased that through our hosted virtualization service we can help contribute to this outstanding organization.”
Special Olympics Northern California (SONC) is like many businesses – too small to cost effectively implement and manage its own data center virtual infrastructure, but too big to ignore the inefficiencies and high costs of maintaining a physical infrastructure. As a result, they turned to INX’s Virtual Infrastructure Hosting Service for their server and desktop provisioning, all of which were converted to virtual machines and are now hosted at INX’s data center facility in Sacramento, California. John Cochran, Director of Technology of SONC remarked, ”Implementation has been going very well.”
”Everyone is enjoying the freedom to work from anywhere that virtual desktops enable, and I’m enjoying the peace of mind that a hosted virtual data center offers.”
Mark Hilz, President of INX commented, ”The industry is beginning to offer more and more hosted services as the Software as a Service (SaaS) model is becoming an efficient means of offering applications. INX is going to participate in the SaaS model in both Data Center Virtualization as well as Unified Communications and Collaboration. In the future, most organizations will have a blended environment of on premise and off premise applications as people will take advantage of cloud computing.”
Special Olympics Northern California is a free year-round sports training and competition program for children and adults with developmental disabilities. More than 13,000 athletes compete in over 170 competitions throughout the region in 19 sports.
