Memset Joins The Cloud Industry ForumAug 12, 2011 11:43 BST
Memset today announced it has formally joined the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), an industry body established to promote trust, security and transparency within the sector.
Memset is an award-winning IT hosting company providing managed hosting and cloud computing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions for businesses.
Kate Craig-Wood, managing director of Memset commented: “Cloud computing presents end users with the opportunity to do more with less, however there is still work to be done in driving trust in cloud based services. We fully support CIF’s messaging, which is to assist business users in identifying and investing in secure, reliable services, and our company values go hand-in-hand with this aim. CIF educates the end user on how to identify the most suitable and cost-effective services for them and we in turn endeavour to provide our customers with low-cost, high-quality services. We pioneered virtual machine technology in the UK, launching our Miniserver VM® virtual servers in 2002, and have continued to develop it since. This month we are also launching our cloud storage product, Memstore™, completing our cloud portfolio, so we believe the time is right to commit to support the good work of CIF.”
Andy Burton, chairman of the Cloud Industry Forum commented: “Memset is one of Britain’s leading suppliers of dedicated physical and virtual servers so we are delighted to have yet another focused service provider on board. Memset promotes three key qualities that we encourage vendors to provide to their customers; transparency, support and high quality services at a low cost, which coincides with our Code of Practice’s three guidelines; accountability, transparency and capability. We have every confidence that this will be a successful relationship for both parties and we look forward to working with Kate and her team as we pursue our ambition of bringing business consumers and suppliers of Cloud and Hosted Services closer together in a trusted, sustainable and rewarding ecosystem.”
