Cloud-Based Application Acceleration Service Powered by Virtela Enterprise Services Cloud (ESC) Recognized for Outstanding Innovation
DENVER, August 11, 2011 - Virtela, the world's largest independent managed network, security and cloud services company, today announced that TMC, a global integrated media company, has named Virtela's Cloud-based Application Acceleration Service as a recipient of the 2010 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.
Leveraging the Virtela Enterprise Services Cloud (ESC) - the only cloud platform purpose-built for enterprise networking, security and mobility - the Cloud-based Application Acceleration Service enables companies to gain all the benefits of WAN optimization without the high cost and complexity of dedicated hardware appliances at each branch office. Via Virtela's 50 Local Cloud Centers (LCCs) strategically located around the world, the service can be activated instantly in more than 190 countries at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
The service speeds applications performance up to 25 times and is backed by the world's first application response time guarantee: If customers do not experience faster response times, they do not pay - and Virtela will pay them 250% of their service charge.
"This recognition from TMC further reinforces Virtela's commitment to serve the needs of our customers through the creation and application of innovative technologies and services from our global cloud footprint," said Ron Haigh, Virtela's vice president of cloud architecture and services. "The Virtela team is rewarded by seeing the real-world results of these innovations with our customers and partners, and will continue to deliver services that drive down their costs and increase business performance."
This recognition follows other recent industry awards won by Virtela including the GTB Innovation Award for Business Service Innovation and Frost and Sullivan Product Leadership Award, both for Cloud-based Application Acceleration, and The American Business Award for Customer Service Department of the Year.
Beyond cloud-based application acceleration, Virtela has leveraged its ESC platform to create and deliver a number of innovative cloud services, including a cloud-based Mobile Device Management Service which proactively manages mobility policies, applications, security and costs.
The Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award recognizes the vision, leadership, and thoroughness that are characteristics of the prestigious award. The most innovative products and services brought to the market from March 2010 through March 2011 were chosen as winners.
