MONROE, La. — AIMS Inc. and Fortitude Technology have partnered to offer cloud hosting services for clients in the petroleum marketplace.

Cloud hosting centers are built around the concept of sharing computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices handle applications. Cloud hosting moves some of the infrastructure, particularly servers, storage and some applications, to a remote data center operated by a professional provider. In other words, it is conceivable that using a cloud hosting solution could remove the necessity of owning and maintaining a server in the office.

Cloud hosting solutions reduce capital expenditures, eliminate hardware maintenance and associated expenses, and provide managed backup services, eliminating the worry and stress associated with premise-based servers.

“Marketers who are seeking state-of-the-art technology, high availability servers, secure data protection and peace of mind now have an alternative to a premise-based solution,” said David Dorries, director of sales and marketing for AIMS. “With AIMS’ Cloud Hosting Services, powered by Fortitude Technologies, marketers can easily add, remove and change server resources on demand.”

In business since 1968, AIMS Inc., Monroe, La., develops, markets and supports a wide array of software, services and solutions for the wholesale petroleum distribution industry.

Fortitude Technology Inc., a San Diego-based company, with hosting facilities in San Diego and Las Vegas, provides cost-effective, flexible managed hosting solutions, secure offsite backup storage, business continuity and disaster-recovery services to customers throughout the United States.
