AlertBoot Improves Availability and Saves 75 Percent by Migrating to the OpSource Cloud

Leading Hard Disk Encryption Company Selects OpSource for Service Level Guarantees, Security and Lower Cost

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2010) -  OpSource, Inc., the leader in enterprise cloud and managed hosting, today announced that AlertBoot, a leading hard disk encryption and data security company, has improved its service availability and saved more than 75 percent in operating costs by moving its information technology systems to the OpSource Cloud. OpSource Cloud Hosting is the first cloud solution to meet enterprise production requirements for security, control, performance, and ease of integration.

AlertBoot provides a web-based suite of data security tools for individuals and organizations that require cost-effective, scalable disk encryption and laptop data security. When faced with the challenge of scaling its environment, maintaining uptime, and the soaring costs of traditional data center leases, electricity, and network bandwidth, AlertBoot selected OpSource Cloud Hosting. They were able to meet their key goal of economical and always-on availability for customers, especially during peak times and unpredictable loads. 

"OpSource has opened a world of new possibilities for AlertBoot's growth and services, while dramatically reducing our IT investment," said Tim Maliyil, CEO, AlertBoot. "As a high growth technology company, we were faced with the challenge of keeping up with our own growth. Rather than continuing to have to spend capital to buy equipment to enable our growth, we were able to reduce our operating costs and capital requirements. OpSource's reliability and expertise have completely alleviated our concerns about performance and availability. The business value provided by OpSource Cloud Hosting is unparalleled in the industry."

As a managed service, AlertBoot could no longer tolerate a single moment of downtime for its customers or a long migration. Within weeks, AlertBoot was up and running on OpSource Cloud Hosting, and immediately saw the benefits of moving to the cloud with unlimited bandwidth, high speed networks, and an easy-to-use interface that allows delegated administration.

"OpSource's unmatched security has been a great surprise and asset to our business," Maliyil said. "In addition, OpSource is always coming out with new features that make my life easier than ever. It's like OpSource is reading my mind."

"AlertBoot is a terrific example of how switching to the cloud directly translates into immense business savings, while gaining more services, productivity, and capabilities at the same time," said Jon Beck, SVP of Worldwide Field Operations, OpSource. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with AlertBoot and helping them to further accelerate growth while reducing costs."
