Raleigh, NC (PressExposure) March 10, 2009 -- Hosted Solutions, the East Coast's premier data center and managed services provider, announced today that the company is the official IT infrastructure host for the 143rd build for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The Emmy-award winning hit reality show on ABC Television is coming to the northeastern area of North Carolina to surprise a lucky and deserving family with an extreme home makeover.
Several companies and thousands of volunteers are coming together in Edenton, N.C. to implement an intense, concentrated one-week build of a new home that will make a miracle happen for a deserving family.
Hosted Solutions is providing the IT infrastructure and services to support the official website and central registration database for the show. As part of this, the company is donating a fully redundant infrastructure consisting of fully managed firewalls, load-balancing, server and storage infrastructure supported by an enterprise class data center and multi honed bandwidth across multiple tier 1 providers. Several Hosted Solutions employees donated their time in the evenings and over the weekend to support this initiative.
"We're thrilled to support such a great cause," said Rich Lee, founder and chief executive officer for Hosted Solutions. "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is an incredible show. The way they rally an entire community to come together and support a family in need is truly amazing. The websites for each Extreme Makeover show experience tremendous traffic between visitors and volunteer registration. They needed a robust platform that could support substantial spikes in traffic. We handle high volume like that for clients every day so we were well equipped to help."
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is one of several charitable organizations that Hosted Solutions supports. The company actively supports Band Together, The Boys and Girls Club of North Carolina and The Tammy Lynn Foundation.
