The Accomplishment Is a First for Any Cloud Exchange Provider, and Cements Intermedia's Position as the World's Largest Exchange Hosting Provider
Intermedia announced today it now hosts more than 600,000 premium Microsoft Exchange mailboxes. Intermedia stands alone globally among third-party Exchange providers as the first to hit this mark.
Joining in the celebration is Rockstar Incorporated, maker of Rockstar Energy Drink, which provisioned the 600,000(th) Exchange mailbox to catapult Intermedia over this milestone. Rockstar is so pleased to boost Intermedia with the same energy they deliver to athletes, rock stars and anyone who leads an active lifestyle that it has teamed with Intermedia in a "Replace your Server with a Fridge Full of Rockstar" promotion. Every customer who signs up for Intermedia's hosted Exchange service before September 30 will be entered to win a Rockstar-branded refrigerator along with a year's supply of Rockstar Energy Drink.
"I felt a rush just seeing Rockstar's name among our 50,000 cloud customers," said Michael Gold, president of Intermedia. "When they provisioned Exchange seat number 600,000, I wanted to grab my skis and attempt to recreate one of their high-action videos. I'm excited that such a vibrant company can help us reach and celebrate this milestone -- to say nothing of the fact that Intermedia reliably delivers the support, security and mobility that vibrant and fast-moving companies like Rockstar need to succeed."
Industry firsts are nothing new for Intermedia. Intermedia broke through in 2000 as the first provider to offer hosted Exchange anywhere in the world. Since then, it has led the hosted Exchange industry with numerous first-to-market benchmarks, including being the first provider to offer Microsoft Exchange, Lync and SharePoint 2013 from the cloud in October 2012.
Intermedia energizes small and medium-sized businesses not only with hosted Exchange, but with its entire Office in the Cloud(TM) suite of services. This suite makes Intermedia a one-stop shop for Fortune 50-level IT capabilities across a business's fundamental communications, collaboration and content management needs. Its services include Microsoft Exchange, Lync and SharePoint, along with proprietary services such as Hosted PBX, mobile device management, security and file sharing and syncing with SecuriSync. Extremely reliable, fully integrated and very mobile, Intermedia makes SMBs more agile by providing the flexibility to choose the services that best fit their needs.
Intermedia continues to invest in its existing services while creating new and innovative ways to better serve its growing customer and partner base. Over the last few weeks, Intermedia has introduced compliant Email Archiving and launched a new and improved partner program and sales portal. The company also announced the preview period for SecuriSync, its new proprietary business-grade file collaboration service designed to meet the needs of both IT administrators and end users. All of its integrated services offer a worry-free cloud experience with enterprise-grade infrastructure reliability, free migration performed by its Cloud Concierge(TM) team and 24/7 phone and email support.
