For all of you who have been following @Solar VPS all week long for the latest updates @CloudExpo & @BigDataExpo we are sorry to say the expo has come to a close. The Cloud is still out there gaining increased virtualization from all across the globe however bright blue skies have returned to the Javits Center. In the coming days look to this blog for a full break down of the expo, what took place there and the FortressITX role @CloudExpo. Additionally, we will be posting a tremendous amount of video from the expo. However before we can lay that on you, we first have to explain something. All week long @CloudExpo people who stopped by our booth asked what FortressITX represented. When we told people FortressITX is a full service IT management specializing in Hosted PBX, Hosted Exchange, full virtualization, OaaS with a privately owned D.C. (data center) and 24/7/365 IT staff on hand, people were very impressed. Admittedly, this is a #GameChanger. After learning the basics, we were asked, “Ok, but someone told me Solar VPS and DedicatedNOW have something to do with you guys…is that true?” In one word, yes. For us FortressITX is our soul. It is who we are. It drives the vast majority of our research and internal IT development strategies. FortressITX is our passion. Under the FortressITX umbrella is Solar VPS and DedicatedNOW. Solar VPS and DedicatedNOW are sister brands of FortressITX. Here is a quick break down on how they work in unison with FortressITX. Solar VPS provides hosted servers, virtual servers, and hosted exchange. Moreover, Solar VPS provides consumers with traffic control to stop spam, dotDefender to protect against hacking/data theft and an internally developed server monitoring system we call SolarRAY. Solar VPS is part of the FortressITX family due to its comprehensive services and dedication to excellence within hosting. Dedication is the right term for the other part of our family, DedicatedNOW. DedicatedNOW provides consumers access to industry leading managed servers, custom managed/complex hosting with a commitment to collocation, unmetered bandwidth, server security and private cloud services. Like Solar VPS, DedicatedNOW is part of the FortressITX family because of the brands never ending dedication to customer service and IT management capabilities. All told, the three brands make up the FortressITX family providing consumers with the best Cloud management services available anywhere on the market today. Simply put, our family provides your family everything you need to run an office in the modern world – we provide consumers with OaaS (Office as a Service). Alright, now that you know who and what we are, as promised here are some cool photos of the expo. http://www.flickr.com/photos/fortressitx/ Some of these photos are all business. Some of these photos highlight random @CloudExpo madness and some of the photos are pretty silly ( people sleeping on cloud bean bags and snoring to the high heavens). Overall though, they offer a great retrospective of what took place from June 11 – 14 at the Javits Center in NYC. So feel free to take a look at the photos, comments are welcomed, sharing is also welcomed. Thx. Another post coming soon.
