London, United Kingdom – (The Hosting News) – August 28, 2008 – Web hosting managed services company, Attenda Limited, has been engaged to manage iWantGreatCare.org, through Attenda’s launch of Real Time Infrastructure (RTI) services.
Following a year in development and running Attenda’s live internal applications for over six months, Attenda’s Real Time Infrastructure is now live.
iWantGreatCare.org is as an independent organization that brings together healthcare professionals, patient groups and others with a passion for making sure that every patient in the UK gets the very best care. Attenda RTI is an extension of Attenda’s Virtualisation Platform and builds upon the company’s investment and expertise in VMware, recognised through its VMware EMEA Hosting Partner of the Year Award.
Neil Bacon, Founder and CEO, iWantGreatCare.org remarked, ”As one of the fastest growing networking sites on the web, the agility and scalability of the Attenda RTI were key to our decision. The solution allows our organisation to invest in computing resources when we need it, eliminating the need to over-invest in unused capacity at the outset.”
Simon Hansford, VP Products and Marketing, Attenda added, ”CEOs are starting to recognise that a Real Time Infrastructure is a critical pre-requisite to achieving business goals within the enterprise. We see Attenda RTI as a vital new component in our IT Managed Services portfolio, enabling clients to transform their IT with rapid provisioning of resources, increasing their service quality whilst reducing their upfront costs.”
Mr. Bacon continued, ”Our service demands high availability, with 24 x 7 user access, and looking at the marketplace Attenda was a clear leader in the provision of high availability managed services.”
Solutions deployed on Attenda RTI benefit from the high levels of business agility and service availability when compared to a comparable physical infrastructure. This includes immediate access to 150% of the subscribed processor, memory, storage and bandwidth capacity to meet unpredicted business or capacity demands – free of charge. Capital costs are significantly reduced through the use of virtualisation and leveraging elements of Attenda’s M.O. shared infrastructure including networking and storage. Additionally, RTI resources can be combined with dedicated physical resources to provide the flexibility required for enterprise solutions.
Attenda is both ISO9001 and ISO27001 accredited, an HP SP Signature Partner, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, a SAP Adaptive IT Hosting Provider, a SunTone accredited managed service provider and an Accredited Catalist Supplier. Attenda is one of only seven companies to have been ranked in the UK’s Sunday Times ARM Tech Track 100 for three consecutive years and was voted 2007 Best Managed Services Provider by Data Centre Europe Awards 2007.
