SingleHop Named Top Dedicated Server Provider While Maintaining 100% Uptime For 2011

Chicago IL - January 30th, 2012 -­SingleHop, Inc., a leader in highly automated Infrastructure-as-a-Service, today announced the company was named the Best Dedicated Server provider in the 6th Annual Web Host Awards by HostReviews.com. According to the HostReview committee, the selection process was based on factors such as service quality, customer support, package diversity, new products, and overall performance. The award comes weeks after SingleHop announced they achieved 100% uptime for 2011 between both their data centers.

"These are both great signs of our commitment to build and improve our own infrastructure to provide our clients with the highest level of service and dependability. Dedicated servers have been at the core of our business from the beginning. This award means that even though we are constantly releasing new products and services, we've never lost our focus," said Zak Boca, Chief Executive Officer.

In an industry where consumer confidence has been shaken by high-­profile outages and daily security breaches, SingleHop’s announcement of 100% uptime exemplifies their commitment to maintaining dependable, state-­of-­the-­art facilities. The larger of the two data centers, located in Elk Grove Village, IL has allowed SingleHop to continue to build the safest and most secure network possible. "Our clients trust and rely on our stability which is why 100% uptime is not just marketing material; it's the standard way we operate and our clients know that," said Boca.

Data Center Features:
•20,000 Sq. ft. of computing space with over 8,000 production servers
•SSAE 16 Type II certified
•32 on-­site and operational generators
•80Gbps connectivity
•On-­site datacenter operations and network operations suites staffed 24x7 by SingleHop engineers

"Our custom-­built automation as well as our internal usage policies ensures we avoid saturation issues on the network," said Dave Szczur, Director of Facilities. "At the same time, acquiring the best hardware and staff available, continues to help position SingleHop as a robust and reliable web hosting provider."
