Herndon, Virginia – (The Hosting News) – January 19, 2009 – Provider of managed hosting and services for small and mid-sized businesses, BlackMesh, Inc., has reported an increased revenue by over 40 percent in 2008, for a sixth consecutive year of growth.
Revenue has increased by 41 percent and grew its customer base by 17 percent in 2008, leading to its sixth consecutive year of growth. In addition, the company continued to be an active leader in the Drupal community, doubling throughout the year the number of Drupal sites hosted on BlackMesh servers. Drupal, a popular open source content management system, is used by developers around the world to build many leading web sites.
Eric Mandel, CEO of BlackMesh remarked, ”Our continued growth is a testament not only to the talent and experience of our expert staff, but also to our ability to help customers reduce operating costs, especially during a time when the bottom line is more important than ever. By providing the hardware, network equipment, and staff necessary to maintain an organization’s IT infrastructure, we allow customers to focus on their core business rather than day-to-day technology issues. This business-cost model, combined with our unlimited, anytime service plan, is designed for and has been adopted by many emerging businesses and will continue to support BlackMesh’s success into 2009.”
BlackMesh significantly expanded its customer base in 2008 with nationally recognized clients including CommonPlaces, Phase2 Technology and Tag 1 Consulting, which maintains AdBard.net, an advertising network that aims to foster a friendly and useful advertising community for Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) oriented websites and advertisers. The company also announced new partnerships with technology providers R1Soft and Kemp Technologies to improve and secure the management of BlackMesh customer data.
In addition to doubling the number of Drupal sites BlackMesh hosted in 2008, the company continued its status as a leader in the Drupal community by presenting at the official 2008 conference, DrupalCon Boston, and was actively involved in the Washington D.C. region’s local Drupal groups. BlackMesh will take its relationship with the Drupal community a step further in 2009 with its gold sponsorship of DrupalCon D.C, which will be held at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center March 4-7, 2009.
