Acquires On-Demand Services not Available from Managed Hosting Provider
Montclair, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/11/2007 -- OpSource™, the SaaS delivery experts, today announced that TeeBeeDee (www.tbd.com), a community for people 40 years old and older, has chosen OpSource On-Demand™ to deliver its online experience network. Within months of launching TeeBeeDee via a managed hosting provider, the company realized it needed more services to reliably serve its users. TeeBeeDee found those services in OpSource On-Demand.
TeeBeeDee is an experience network that provides a platform for members to learn, exchange information, and connect with each other. TeeBeeDee includes features such as discussions, questions and answers, member profiles, interest groups, and user-generated content.
Greg Sherwin, vice president of engineering, TeeBeeDee, said, "Our managed hosting provider was handling the fundamentals, like networking and system administration. But as our user base grew, we needed more service than the managed hosting company could provide, like 24x7 management and monitoring of our Java application servers. OpSource On-Demand provides a proactive approach to delivering our applications, multi-point customer experience monitoring and application management. OpSource speaks our language and clearly understands the business of effectively managing our Web applications."
Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource, said, "TeeBeeDee's story makes clear how OpSource is different from managed hosting providers. Like TeeBeeDee, any Web company that is running a live application to provide a service to users via the Web needs much more than a place to park its Web pages and underlying program code. OpSource has expertise in all aspects of Web application delivery and we handle all the details, so TeeBeeDee and on-demand companies like it can focus on their core businesses."
