April 7, 2003 — Data center and Web hosting provider Springboard Managed Hosting (SpringboardHosting.com) announced last week that it has signed a multi-year contract with Nando Media, the interactive media division of newspaper company The McClatchy Company. Nando Media, says Springboard, provides Internet publishing solutions and support for more than fifty newspaper publishers, including The McClatchy newspaper Web sites. The company already had one hosting location in production in California, says Springboard, and the addition of an East-Coast facility was critical to the company providing a stable, redundant environment. Under the terms of the new agreement, Springboard will provide Nando Media with a secure caged area with room more than 100 servers, as well as 30mbps of bandwidth. Springboard says its solution will save Nando Media more than $100,000 per year versus building its own data center. “This is a significant win for us on several levels,” said Rich Lee, CEO of Springboard Hosting. “Nando Media is a recognized market leader in the web publishing space with a customer base that’s generating over 7.5 million page views a day. Moreover, we were the clear winner after they conducted a rigorous review process of competitive facilities and financial statements. This win affirms our belief that profitable companies with sound business models are being rewarded. Our competitors will continue to get penalized for their ‘build it and they will come’ strategy, which we all know doesn’t work in today’s economic climate.”
