May 8, 2009 by  

Web Hosting ToolsSan Francisco and Vancouver, BC – PEER 1 Network Enterprises, Inc. (TSX:PIX), a global online IT hosting provider, is sponsoring GigaOM’s Structure 09 event. The second annual conference, being held at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco on June 25, 2009, will bring together industry leaders to explore the Cloud Computing paradigm and innovations of Internet infrastructure.

“Internet infrastructure is vital to online business success and PEER 1 is proud to support this conference for its second consecutive year,” said Robert Miggins, senior vice president of business development for PEER 1. “Structure 09 provides an excellent opportunity to learn first-hand about the benefits of testing and implementing the latest innovations, which can help companies find the most efficient and cost effective hosting options.”

Committed to offering the right solutions and support to help its customers thrive, PEER 1’s IT infrastructure strength provides the ideal platform for testing new technologies and greatly supports continued technology development in the hosting market. The company is one of the only hosting providers to offer all three major types of web hosting under one roof, co-location, dedicated and managed hosting. These solutions are backed by PEER 1’s SuperNetwork™, which spans 13,000 miles and links its 16 data centers and 21 points-of-presence (PoPs) across North America and Europe.

“I am so very pleased to have PEER 1 with us again as a lead sponsor. PEER 1 espouses the same core values we have at Structure, thus making them an ideal partner for our flagship event,” said Om Malik, founding force behind Structure 09 and GigaOM networks. “The last year has seen much progress in Cloud Computing and PEER 1 has become a vital part of that industry.”

At the conference, PEER 1 will host a workshop focusing on the role of hardware within the cloud computing paradigm. The workshop will serve as an educational forum to discuss the pros, cons and pitfalls of building a cloud using commoditized hardware. Additionally, PEER 1 will discuss its upcoming CloudXcelerator Program, which will provide start-ups with the needed platform and infrastructure strength to test and implement new technologies, spurring continued market innovation.

Presented by GigaOM, Structure 09 is a significant one-day event that will gather the most innovative and influential industry leaders together to explore the latest Internet infrastructure build-out. It will sort through the emerging and disruptive computing technologies and inform businesses on how best to leverage them. And it will provide insight to investors and executives on the best implementations, ideas and start-ups out there today — and what to look for tomorrow.
