ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - Searchlight Solutions Ltd. (PINKSHEETS: SLLN) today announces it is planning to ramp up its operational deployment to ensure it is well positioned to take advantage of the forecasted increase in demand for cloud based services.

An article from the Wall Street Journal cited a report by Forrester Research that "The global market for "cloud computing" is going to increase from about $41 billion in 2011 to $241 billion in 2020."

The article further went on to state the following:

  • It's clear that cloud computing is one of the "next big things" in tech.
  • It's going to be a "significant contributor to the size and growth of the tech industry overall," wrote Forrester researchers Stefan Ried and Holger Kisker.
  • The big growth will happen when businesses, rather than regular people, move things like email and other tech services to the "cloud."

Additionally a 2011 Cloud Research report by Morgan Stanley stated the following:

  • Cloud Computing Takes Off.
  • Market Set to Boom as Migration Accelerates.
  • Cloud Impacts: Stronger than Investors Anticipate.

The Company believes its High Performance Cloud Computing (HPC2) services under development and in beta programs will provide a great competitive advantage to pursue the cloud computing market growth opportunity.
