Redwood Shores, Calif. – July 27, 2010
NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ: NAVI), a premier provider of complex hosting, application management and managed cloud services for the enterprise market, is using a combination of Oracle’s Sun servers and Oracle software to run its mission-critical systems.
With more than 1,500 customers in 10 datacenters across the US and UK, NaviSite needed to expand its virtualization platform to meet the growing infrastructure demands of its customers, while delivering industry-leading performance and availability.
With Oracle, NaviSite has improved the flexibility of its service offerings, decreased the time to provision the computing platform for managed applications and gained the ability to scale application environments as business grows.
Using NaviSite’s managed application services, customers can reduce costs while delivering high service levels.
