AUSSIE HOSTS JOINS VERIDAS IN JOINT VENTURES
BRISBANE, QLD, August 25, 2003. Aussie Hosts, the web hosting division of the Enhanced Design and Information Technology (EDIT) Group, has joined forces with Veridás Communications, to introduce affordable dedicated server and co-location services in Brisbane, Australia.
The EDIT Group, a well established Internet industry member, started as Home Information Technology Solutions in 1996 providing computer hardware and Internet service throughout Brisbane and surrounding areas. Veridás is one of Australia's premium convergent networks.
In September 2003 dedicated server and co-location services will be expanded as part of a strategic Channel Partner agreement with Veridás. This will primarily expand the core operating base of Ventana XP, a unique software solution for ISPs/ASPs that provides single point automated server management, administration and configuration of single servers right through to whole server farms. Ventana XP has the capacity to deploy stand-alone co-located servers, or individual servers such as web, email, FTP and DNS servers. The Veridás US datacentre will then be expanded later this year to cater for the expected influx of new business abroad.
"Ventana PRO has been the turning point in the way we do business", says Gary Meadows, EDIT Group's Managing Partner. "Being able to provide clients across the nation with one central point to administer their web hosting, dialup, ISDN and ADSL, has reduced the steps we need to take to deliver our services. The next step is Ventana XP which will deliver globally for us".
One of Australia's earliest Internet pioneers, John Russell, the CEO of Veridás, has developed Ventana from the ground up and is looking forward to breaking new ground with Aussie Hosts. "We have identified a huge void in the hosting market today, and we already have the tools running securely and efficiently on our own Network that we can take to a global market. After 2 years of development and field testing, we're confident that together with Aussie Hosts we're introducing a system that will take the industry by storm".
EDIT Group and Veridás have worked together in various capacities since 1996, and this venture will be the pinnacle of developing better "tools of the trade". EDIT Group has been appointed the first strategic Channel Partner for a wide range of Veridás products and services, with a special focus on distributing Ventana XP which will be launched this September. This partnership will become a driving force behind Australian and US based web hosting.
