Still pretty much in its infancy, Datapipe (News - Alert) has been recognized as one of America’s Most Promising Companies by Forbes. The New Jersey-based company is one of many entrants in the cloud hosting space, but one of few that holds real promise.
Datapipe, which provides managed hosting, IT security and data storage for mid to large-sized companies in financial, pharmaceutical and technology industries, boasts popular clients such as Johnson & Johnson and Thomson Reuters (News - Alert).
The company, which was founded in 1998, raised $176 million in debt and equity funding from TD Securities and ABRY Partners in May 2011, according to Forbes. As of February 2013, Datapipe earned $114 million in sales – a 23 percent increase since 2009.
The company offers a globally available, high-performance managed cloud computing platform called Stratosphere, its signature offering, which is designed to meet enterprise requirements for governance, usability, compliance and interoperability with traditional compute platforms.
The Stratosphere cloud portal provides immediate access to cloud resources over a secure Internet connection, including the ability to:
- Provision, run, manage and de-provision virtual machines through a simple, easy to use interface
- Know exactly what your are spending on cloud compute resources with daily spend reporting
- Create additional user accounts
- Provides access to performance monitoring with reports on Network Throughput and CPU Utilization
Even more, Stratosphere enables self-service cloud environments, cloud diversity in conjunction with the AWS ecosystem and hybrid cloud options featuring Datapipe’s managed hosting, compliance and security services. The Stratosphere platform is fully managed up to the application layer, according to company officials.
All of Datapipe’s products and services are backed up by its renowned customer service, which raked in five awards in 2012 alone, as well as 100 percent uptime guarantee.
In fact, the company is so dedicated to delivering the best for its customers that it managed to maintain its services even during Hurricane Sandy, despite having a major data center in Jersey City, N.J. Datapipe was named the most reliable hosting center in both October and November of 2012 by Netcraft, which measures the response times of around 40 leading hosting providers’ sites. In December 2012, Datapipe managed to maintain a spot in the top five most reliable cloud hosting sites.
Is it really such a surprise that Forbes recognized this young yet incredibly promising company’s potential? The future certainly holds a lot for this quickly growing company!
