Here at EarthLink, we like to talk about ourselves as “the original cloud company” due to our long history providing a virtual environment to millions of customers. That is a bold statement, but considering that we’ve provided secure online billing, virtual customer care, email and ecommerce in the cloud with a high level of network security and PCI compliance since the 1990’s, EarthLink can back up this statement with experience and expertise.
Now, as we continue our transformation to an integrated communications and IT services provider for business customers, we’ve announced several recent IT Services product launches that underscore how far EarthLink has travelled down the path.
This week, EarthLink Business launched Cloud Workspace™, a hosted desktop service and our latest virtualization product. This customized environment enables customers to control business applications and data with secure access for employees from anywhere, from any device and via any high-speed Internet or private MPLS connection. Cloud Workspace also helps to significantly reduce operating costs, eliminate capital expenditures, increase employee productivity with easy application access and reduce complex security challenges.

And in late April, EarthLink premiered three new IT Services packages designed to simplify the cloud so businesses can leverage the benefits of virtualization services. The Cloud Launch Pad, the Cloud Entry Bundle, and the Secure Email Bundle enable customers to economically partner with EarthLink to complement their internal IT resources by leveraging a comprehensive mix of IT Services and security experts in an enterprise class data center environment.
“With these carefully designed bundles, EarthLink has removed many of the real or perceived barriers for customers of any size to explore what the cloud can mean for their business,“ said Barbara Dondiego, EarthLink Chief Marketing Officer. “We often hear from customers that they want their provider to act as an extension of their internal IT team, helping them become more productive and effective. These bundles are a toolkit that enables that to happen easily.” Read more.
Watch for even more exciting IT Services product news in the weeks and months ahead as EarthLink enhances its suite of virtualization, data center, managed security services, and managed support services. By converging our extensive telecom assets with proven cloud-based IT technologies, EarthLink is well-positioned to offer both its existing and new business customers with an ideal blend of the services they need to run their enterprises as efficiently as possible.
