The Internet Services Providers’ Association has today announced the finalists for the 2014 ISPA’s. The UK’s longest running internet industry awards and Memset are delighted to have been recognized in the Managed Service Innovation category.
Memset have made serious inroads into the managed-services market thanks to their all-inclusive model including storage, virtualization, server infrastructure and cloud computing.
With Memstore, their cloud storage product, a content delivery network is provided at no extra charge other than for bandwidth. This is a highly-resilient cluster of multiple servers in geographically diverse locations, all with massive network connectivity.
Memset’s CDN allows customers to replicate their infrastructure in the desired geographic locations by using a virtual machine with the required specifications - essentially, buying a "slice" of Memset’s pre-built infrastructure, providing a more cost-effective way to scale and reduce latency for geographically dispersed areas.
Providing this service for member dining club Tastecard, Memset have been shortlisted for this award which enables Tastecard to not only save precious bandwidth and processing power of the web servers, but to also provide web visitors with a better and faster access to content.
ISPA Secretary General, Nick Lansman said: "Congratulations to all those shortlisted for the 2014 ISPAs which again shows the real strength and diversity of the UK internet sector, which underpins the whole economy. The new categories reflect the massive rise in cloud and digital services in the last year, and it’s great to reward those who have innovated in these areas.”
The ISPA award winners will be announced during a gala ceremony at the Park Lane Hotel in London on 10th July.
