Momentum is defined as the force or speed of movement. Momentum means going forward, moving ahead and ultimately making progress. Momentum is something we are experiencing at Internap with the multitude of recent events and new clients announced in just the last few days.
Momentum at Internap is apparent with the recent news that we have been selected as the official supplier of web hosting and content delivery network services to Sahara Force India, the fast-rising Formula One racing team, based in Silverstone, United Kingdom. As the F1 season gets underway, employees are getting up to speed with Formula One racing and the excitement is building. And yes, pun intended.
Another area gaining momentum for Internap is retail and eCommerce. Just last week we announced National Vision and Vermont Teddy Bear are leveraging our services to support their business. Both customers depend on Internap’s suite of performance-driven technologies to build and maintain their own momentum. For example, Vermont Teddy Bear can see web traffic spikes as high as 700%! In order to keep their momentum going, they need the power behind our Performance IP™, colocation, and CDN services. Likewise, National Vision has a strong growth trajectory, opening approximately 40 new stores annually and is recognized as the fourth-largest optical retailer in the U.S. After acquiring AC Lens, one of the fastest-growing online contact lens providers in the world, National Vision turned to Internap.
All three customers are welcome additions, and we are thrilled to support them. As we move ahead into the second quarter of 2012, we can’t wait to see what happens next.
