Hosted Solutions, a provider of IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS), announced today that the company has significantly expanded its suite of application hosting and management capabilities to include support for a full range of leading business applications, including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, WebSphere, WebLogic and JBOSS.

This, when coupled with Hosted Solutions' industry-leading managed services and web hosting capabilities, enables the company to provide a complete range of IT services to its mid-tier and enterprise-level clients throughout the United States, moving it away from the traditional, and increasingly outmoded, pure "hosting-only" business model.

"As companies become more comfortable with the concept of hosted and managed services, the old ways of doing things no longer suffice," said Christopher "Kip" Turco, Hosted Solutions' Chief Operating Officer. "By moving deeper into the stack and providing a greater range of services, such as applications hosting and support, we deliver greater value to our clients. They, in turn, are far more likely to regard us as their trusted partner, ready to help them solve a full scale of business challenges."

"We've seen a significant level of interest in this offering from our customers," Turco added.

As part of today's announcement, Hosted Solutions said it would provide its customers with additional access to application environment planning, administration, and monitoring services. Through its "Hi-Touch" approach, a team of seasoned application engineers will provide subject matter expertise for end-to-end support of all aspects of customer application environments, including architecture recommendations, incident triage, and in-depth knowledge and troubleshooting on a wide range of J2EE technologies.

Hosted Solutions provides its full suite of application and network hosting services to Motricity, a leading provider of data solutions and services to the world's most successful mobile operators and content providers. Those services include functions in key areas needed to ensure consistent uptime, featuring more than 100 terabytes (TB) of backup and storage, Oracle RAC administration, dedicated account management and security to meet PCI compliance standards.

"We found a solid partner in Hosted Solutions to assist us in our optimization and platform consolidation efforts," said Chris Rivera, Vice President of Managed Services/IT at Motricity. "The Hosted Solutions professional services team includes a well-seasoned group of Oracle DBAs, WebLogic and J2EE application engineers, UNIX, Windows and Linux systems administrators and network engineers. They clearly have the technical expertise and impressive uptime we require to manage a series of complex applications, ensuring that we meet our customers' demands," Rivera said.
