OnX Cloud and Managed Services Division Continues Sales Growth

IT Solution Provider Reports Record Increase in New Contracts as Services Expand

TORONTO and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- OnX Enterprise Solutions, a leading global enterprise data center IT Solutions Provider, today announced a second straight quarter of significant growth and expansion of services in FY 2013. The OnX Cloud and Managed Services division reported record sales and client acquisition in Q1, and has seen the expansion continue into Q2, recognizing over $13 million in new contracts, an increase of 30 percent over Q1 results. The company attributes its success to the advancing interest in cloud computing, for which OnX provides a number of IT solutions, including the new Application Performance Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS) and SharePoint in the Cloud.

"A key factor in our continued growth this quarter is our dual data center cloud offering which exceeds our clients' expectations for security and high-availability," said Paul Khawaja, OnX's EVP and COO Cloud and Managed Services. "The fact that our growth comes from both new clients, as well as current clients who are continuing to invest in their existing cloud environments, offers us continued optimism for the coming year."

OnX reports that organizations are exploring hybrid solutions to meet multiple business needs ranging from dedicated private hosting, private cloud computing and virtual data center cloud. It is largely dependent on the applications that clients are operating.

After an exhaustive process, Ospero, a global Cloud utility company, selected OnX as its Canadian service provider. "As a global Cloud utility company, our job is to provide elastic compute and storage in as many business hubs across the world as possible," said Jason Currill, CEO of Ospero, an OnX client. "Adhering to our strict 6 pillars methodology, all of our partners need to conform to tier 3+ data center accreditation and meet local data protection legislation," said Currill. "OnX demonstrated that they can deliver beyond the infrastructure, and could meet our rapid service response requirements as well as meet the strict data protection and compliance issues our Canadian customers face."

OnX's TaaS offers companies the ability to test their applications in the cloud before deployment. Application Performance Testing on the OnX Cloud allows companies to access compute resources to stress test important applications and measure capacity for the volume of users at any one time, as well as protect against downtime due to malicious attacks. In addition, TaaS provisions the capability to measure bottle-neck points through the transaction cycle, to pin-point exactly where performance degradation is being realized. By adjusting the application to address the points that are causing issues, companies can increase the response time and overall user experience before deployment.

SharePoint in the Cloud allows clients access to a fully customized collaboration suite that can be quickly deployed in a secure dedicated virtual cloud environment with zero up-front capital. Delivered and supported as a single unified solution with digital application services partner, Momentum, SharePoint in the Cloud delivers access to leading SharePoint skill sets deployed in OnX's leading enterprise-class Cloud solution.
