BitPusher Is Internet Startup's "Secret Weapon"

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 1, 2005 -- When Ryan Carson of Carson Systems (carsonsystems.com) decided to turn his latest idea into a product, he knew that the greatest challenge would be building the infrastructure to make it all work. "We had a great developer, but he had very little hardware experience. If we were going to do things right, we would need outside help."

DropSend (dropsend.com) allows people to send large files to one another despite the limitations of many email systems. Though DropSend's business is located in the UK, they expect most of their business to come from the US. As a result, DropSend decided to locate their server hardware in the San Francisco Bay Area. Carson solicited advice from a local colocation facility, 365 Main (www.365main.net), who directed him to BitPusher, LLC.

It was clear to Carson that BitPusher was the right choice both to develop the initial infrastructure and to permanently manage DropSend's hardware. Carson explains, "It was painfully obvious that BitPusher had the enterprise level experience we lacked, and they were friendly and easy to work with. Rather than wasting our time trying to hack through it ourselves, I knew that it would be more cost effective to outsource the work to competent professionals."

BitPusher not only designed and built DropSend's server infrastructure, they also met emerging needs by consulting with DropSend's team regarding scalability and reliability. Says Carson, "We didn't even know what questions to ask. BitPusher made our lives easy by proactively telling us what we should be thinking about and what issues needed to be addressed."

"BitPusher is our secret weapon. They took a great deal of time to make sure they understood our requirements and then they designed, procured, built, tested, and deployed a solution that has far exceeded our expectations -- all for a price that can't be beat. They're a joy to work with."
