Leading business to business ISP migrates operating infrastructure to
London, 25 June 2003, TeleCity (LSE: TCY.L), the award-winning pan
European data centre services company, today announces that The Positive
Internet Company Ltd, one of the UK's largest independent ISPs, has
chosen to migrate its server infrastructure to TeleCity's facilities
located in London's Docklands.
Positive Internet, which offers a comprehensive range of hosting,
network and web consultancy solutions to high street brands such as
HSBC, the British Film Institute and IKEA, previously located its server
infrastructure at a separate carrier neutral data centre facility in
London. Due to the need for improved levels of service and the ongoing
uncertainty about the long-term viability of its incumbent datacentre
provider, Positive Internet decided to look for a new location in which
to colocate its server infrastructure. It subsequently contracted for a
dedicated suite and IP services at TeleCity London.
"TeleCity's track record in providing managed data centre solutions to
many of Europe's leading ISPs and web hosters demonstrated that they
really could deliver the high levels of service and engineering
excellence that so many claim to offer in this market," said Joachim
Jellinek, Director at the Positive Internet Company.
"TeleCity offered us higher levels of service in terms of 24 x 7
response times, monitoring and management," continued Jellinek. "They
understood their fundamental role in maintaining our ability to offer
service excellence to customers of Positive Internet."
TeleCity also worked closely with Positive Internet with the planning
and implementation of the migration of their infrastructure between data
Rick Hudson, CEO of TeleCity said: "We are aware that operators who
outsource the management and hosting of their business-critical server
infrastructure are not prepared to risk or put up with the poor service
levels offered by some data centre providers in the market. At TeleCity
we continue to be successful in attracting business from leading service
providers who are looking for a reliable, secure data centre partner. I
am personally delighted that Positive Internet has chosen TeleCity."
"Positive Internet offers a unique range of packages and services
coupled with an unparalleled level of business integrity," continued
Hudson. "We share their enthusiasm in what the Internet has to offer
business and society and look forward to playing our part in the
continued success of their company."
