Hosted Solutions Expands Presence in DC Metro Market, Adding New Office to Meet Growing Customer Demand

February 24, 2009 by  

Webmaster NewsRaleigh, NC – Hosted Solutions, the East Coast’s premier data center and managed services provider, announced today that the company has expanded its presence in the DC metro area in response to growing demand in the market.

The new office will be based in Ashburn, VA and will cover the entire Delmarva region. Phillip Jewell, a Northern Virginia native with ten years of technology consulting and infrastructure sales experience will be leading Hosted Solutions’ efforts in the National Capital market.

“We continue to see very strong demand for our managed and dedicated hosting offerings in the DC market,” said Chris “Kip” Turco, Chief Operating Officer. “We added several new customers in that region recently and we expect to see business continue to grow. One of the primary drives for our business in DC is our disaster recovery and replication offerings. Companies in the DC market need to back up their data outside the region for business continuity purposes. Our Raleigh data center is a perfect location for that – far enough to meet the DR needs, but very easy to access quickly – just a short plane ride away.”

Jewell is a seasoned technology sales executive, having spent more than seven years with UUNET (later purchased by Verizon Communications). He has very strong industry experience and great contacts within the market.

“The Washington DC Market is a national leader for technology innovation,” Jewell commented. “There has long been a need for a hosting provider in DC that delivers enterprise services at a national level with a localized approach. Over the last few years, customers in this area have found us through word of mouth. Now it’s time to make sure that everyone in the area evaluating hosting services has the opportunity to work with Hosted Solutions. I look forward to continuing to grow our presence throughout the region.”
