Reston, VA (May 24, 2010) – ICMA, a professional and educational organization for appointed local administrators, selected Clearpath Hosting services after trying the services of much larger providers. After several years of alternating between a variety of inflexible providers, Clearpath Hosting was selected due to its resilient cloud infrastructure and consumption based resources model. When ICMA decided to update their website infrastructure, adding an array of new highly interactive features, they realized the current systems and data center lacked the performance and capability necessary to handle the projected web traffic from around the globe.
By outsourcing to a Clearpath Hosting, an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, ICMA was able to focus personnel on their applications, instead of the equipment and infrastructure used to support it. Clearpath Hosting accomplished this through the use of virtual machines hosted on the Clearpath Cloud. ICMA provides publications, data, and technical assistance and training to thousands of city, town, and county experts, supporting nearly 9,000 members worldwide. With Clearpath Hosting, ICMA found the flexibility and scalability needed during to launch of their new web services.
