SingleHop Ranks #3 in Crain’s Fast Fifty

Preeminent Chicago business magazine recognizes SingleHop’s 6,772% growth over 5 years

Chicago – July 3, 2013 – SingleHop, a global leader in highly automated bare metal and cloud infrastructure, has been ranked #3 in Crain’s Fast 50, the definitive listing of Chicago’s fastest growing companies. SingleHop’s 6,772% growth between 2007 and 2012 demonstrates incredible demand for SingleHop’s industry-leading IT infrastructure and unparalleled customer service.

“When we launched SingleHop, we thought that the IaaS industry had become too opaque,” said Zak Boca, Co-founder and CEO of SingleHop. “Customers never really knew what they were getting. So our goal at SingleHop was nothing less than a complete paradigm shift. We’ve modeled our entire business around providing total system transparency to the customer backed by enforceable accountability.”

Over the past 5 years, SingleHop has expanded from its Midwest base to a total of 4 data centers in Chicago, Phoenix, AZ, and most recently Amsterdam. Throughout the expansion, SingleHop has rolled out an extraordinary variety of solutions for hosting providers, software-as-a-service providers, design and development firms, value added resellers, academic organizations, e-commerce vendors, and marketing services companies.

“From the beginning, our strategy was to use automation to deliver infrastructure, any infrastructure from bare metal to cloud, in a more effective and predictable way. This recognition further validates that our unique single pane-of-glass approach to hosted infrastructure is resonating with businesses,” said Dan Ushman, Co-founder and CMO of SingleHop.

With services ranging from managed web hosting to white label VMware Enterprise Private Clouds, SingleHop’s offering covers the full gamut of IT infrastructure needs while providing best-in-class management tools. Clients across industries have come to appreciate SingleHop’s dedicated technical support teams, real-time system monitoring, extensive automation, and exclusive LEAP control panel, which lets clients monitor their systems from both computers and mobile devices.

SingleHop’s famous service level agreement (SLA), the Customer Bill of Rights, has raised the bar for transparency and accountability throughout the IT industry. The revolutionary SLA tells clients exactly how long it will take for SingleHop to deploy servers, replace hardware, respond to support tickets, and complete other vital tasks. Clients are automatically compensated for any downtime or failure to meet the SLA terms.
