Emerald Data Solutions Enhances Solutions with New Server Host Site

The New East Coast Site Will Enable the Company to Continue to Deliver the Fastest, Most Reliable eGovernance Solution Available

ATLANTA (December 12, 2011) – Emerald Data Solutions™, Inc., the eGovernance pioneer and developer of BoardDocs® paperless meeting solutions, has announced the addition of an additional hosting site in Sterling, VA. The new east coast collocation facility expands on the Company’s existing operations provided through Qwest®/CenturyLink™ and its national CyberCenter network. The recent addition cements BoardDocs as the nation’s fastest growing, most dependable eGovernance service.

This year, Emerald Data Solutions experts worked tirelessly to optimize reliability and increase performance on their hosting environment by adding the new site. Since moving to Qwest/CenturyLink over five years ago, the hosting environment has been consistently dependable through a combination of intelligent design, proactive monitoring and constant upgrades. This latest investment in hardware, software and bandwidth more than doubles the capacity of the BoardDocs cloud. These improvements illustrate the Company’s commitment to its subscribers as a premier cloud-based service provider.

“Emerald Data Solutions is committed to providing world-class services and our advanced technology is a key component to our success,” stated Ari Ioannides, President and Chief Architect. “We are adding new subscribers at a record pace and expect the rate of adoption to continue to accelerate. Our technical team wants to make sure our existing subscribers continue to get the service they expect, build capacity for our growing community and assure our infrastructure can support our new services, including meeting video.”

Inc. Magazine recently named Emerald Data Solutions one of the fastest growing private businesses in the nation on its 29th Annual Inc. 500/5000 List, just as the Company surpassed its 500th subscriber mark. Anticipating rapid subscriber growth, Ioannides and Emerald Data Solutions Director of Operations, Brian Sandenaw, felt the need to invest in an additional, fully-redundant hosting site. Together with engineers from Qwest/CenturyLink, Oracle/Sun, IBM, F5 and ESG, they designed and implemented the expanded and exceptionally fast, secure and fault-tolerant hosting solution.

Emerald Data Solutions offers two powerful and easy-to-use eGovernance solutions: BoardDocs Pro and BoardDocs LT. Both products are fully supported on most mobile devices, including the Apple® iPad™. Plus, only BoardDocs includes dedicated project management, on-site training and US-based, 7 x 24 technical support with every subscription.
