Aliso Viejo, California – (The Hosting News) – March 7, 2007 – Utility computing solutions firm, 3Tera, Inc., has appointed 20-year industry veteran, and former VERITAS executive, Nick Blozan, to the position of Senior Vice President of its Worldwide Sales.
Mr. Blozan will utilize his knowledge of the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) market and on-demand delivery platforms to lead 3Teraâ€™s strategic sales and business development initiatives. A proven sales and IT executive with a history of achieving aggressive sales growth, Mr. Blozan comes to 3Tera from OpSource, where he served as Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and played a significant role in establishing the company as the leader in the SaaS delivery market in less than two years.

Vlad Miloushev, President and CEO of 3Tera, Inc. remarked, â€œSoftware-as-a-Service companies are moving away from costly and restrictive managed hosting, and are looking to leverage completely virtualized data centers to efficiently and cost-effectively deploy, manage and scale web applications according to demand. Nick shares our vision for SaaS, and his extensive experience in sales, strategic alliances and business development will be a strong addition to 3Teraâ€™s executive team.â€
David Thomas, Executive Director, Software Division, Software and Information Industry Association added, â€œI’ve worked closely with Nick as the chairman of the SIIA SaaS Executive Council. The SIIA is very active in educating the industry about Software-as-a-Service and how it is affecting the traditional software business model. As the chair, Nick was very efficient in driving that effort for the benefit of the entire industry, and continues to play a key role in defining SIIAâ€™s overall SaaS strategy. Iâ€™m confident his leadership will also be a strategic asset to 3Tera.â€
Mr. Bozan commented, â€œI am excited to be joining 3Tera at this time because the world is moving away from the traditional software model to a services-centric model. 3Teraâ€™s AppLogic platform provides SaaS, Web 2.0 and even enterprise companies the ability to rapidly deploy, scale and manage Web applications without having to own or operate hardware infrastructure, and to pay only for the resources they actually use.â€
