Mail2World Moves Its Software as a Service (SaaS) Infrastructure to SAVVIS
Global Hosted Email Provider Unveils New Managed Network Featuring Cisco Routers and SAVVIS Global IT Services Platform
LOS ANGELES, Calif., October 15, 2007
Mail2World, Inc., a leading global provider of hosted email and collaboration solutions, today announced that its new network infrastructure featuring new Cisco routers is fully operational. The network is managed jointly by Mail2World and SAVVIS, Inc. (NASDAQ:SVVS), a global leader in IT Infrastructure services for business and government applications. SAVVIS hosts Mail2World's applications in a Southern California data center with connectivity to SAVVIS' global IT services platform, which encompasses 25 data centers spanning 45 countries.
Data Systems Worldwide, Inc. (DSW), a Cisco Silver-certified IT solutions firm that designs, builds and manages large-scale enterprise application infrastructures, was the main integrator for Mail2World's new state-of-the-art network. This successful deployment marks another major milestone in bringing Mail2World's leading-edge email and collaboration solutions to the company's global customer base. The network expansion also accommodates Mail2World's explosive business growth worldwide and maximizes its infrastructure resilience, data protection and security.
"On a day-to-day basis, people rely on email more than any other technology," states Mail2World Executive Vice President and COO Youssef Abed. "To meet and exceed our customers' demands for high performance and reliability, Mail2World is building its business based on industry-leading network and IT infrastructure from Cisco and SAVVIS."
"Mail2World's SaaS delivery architecture features Cisco's advanced network and routing capabilities, which integrate security and load balancing at the core of the network, and hosting services provided by SAVVIS data centers running on the SAVVIS global IT services platform," explained Mike Mogavero, Vice President of Sales at DSW. "As an integrator, DSW is excited about working with Mail2World. The company clearly understands and values an investment in technology as an essential means to achieving their vision of providing fully hosted, powerful, comprehensive email and collaboration solutions and services with superior management capabilities and the highest levels of scalability, security and redundancy for all types of businesses at the lowest cost of ownership."
From a business perspective, Mail2World expects the new network to further differentiate the company within the hosted email and collaboration industry and provide the stickiness to retain existing customers while gaining new ones. On the operational side, the network upgrade enables Mail2World's network operations and engineering teams to dramatically reduce power consumption and the use of precious data center space by consolidating to a single platform. This strategy helps to keep costs down, which allows Mail2World to invest in building rich application features instead of spending unnecessary time and effort managing an unnecessarily diverse set of point solutions that would negatively impact customers' total cost of ownership.
"SAVVIS solutions enable business-critical applications providers like Mail2World to improve the performance and security of their IT systems, lower the cost of their IT operations and become more agile by scaling their IT infrastructure up or down as business needs change," said James Whitemore, Chief Marketing Officer for SAVVIS. "We are delighted to have met Mail2World's strict requirements and look forward to continuing our support for their current business and future global growth."
