Hosted Solutions Announces Deal with Britax Child Safety Inc.

Charlotte, NC – DECEMBER 17, 2008 - Hosted Solutions, the East Coast’s premier managed services and data center provider, announced today that it has signed a deal with Britax Child Safety Inc., a leading child seat manufacturer.

For more than 30 years, Britax, based in Europe, has been a global pioneer in developing car seats that enhance child safety. It understands that determining which child seat a family chooses is a decision not taken lightly, and the Internet is the number one destination for a family researching this decision.

Britax has a large web presence; it needed to select a hosting provider with the ability to globally harmonize the company’s sites spanning North America, Europe and Australia.

“We maintain an international presence in the child seat industry via the Internet and that requires uninterrupted service of our many web properties at all times. We selected Hosted Solutions because they were more than capable of ensuring the availability and security around the clock,” said Charity Stevens, eMarketing Manager at Britax.

“We are honored that a world-renowned company like Britax has decided to put their trust in Hosted Solutions,” said Josh Wolff, Regional Sales Manager for Hosted Solutions in Charlotte, N.C. “We are excited to add yet another blue chip company to our client roster.”

Hosted Solutions was officially contracted to handle dedicated services, bandwidth, firewall, servers, licenses, backups and full management for all Britax web properties.

Hosted Solutions has two data centers in the Triangle area, two in Charlotte, NC and one in Boston, MA. Its full suite of services includes colocation, fully-managed servers, dedicated servers, business continuity services, managed storage, enterprise backup, managed firewall, intrusion and vulnerability detection, load balancing, high availability clustering and comprehensive 24/7 monitoring and management of e-commerce infrastructures.
