Merit Mile recently executed our Hostapaloooza event series down under with our first Australian Tour in Sydney and Melbourne. These events were co-hosted by the largest distributor in Australia, NewLease, and sponsored by leading IT vendors including Citrix Systems, CA Technologies, and Brocade. The events were a huge success for this small hosting market, with approximately 40 service providers in attendance in each city, representing a variety of different IT hosting disciplines.
Merit Mile will continue this momentum for our spring/summer tour, likely to include India and Europe. About Hostapaloooza Microsoft Hostapaloooza is a live, in-person events series, sponsored by Microsoft Hosting University focused on helping cloud service providers activate new, small to mid-sized business customers around the world. These one-day cloud computing educational events feature presentations on the Microsoft Web Platform, Windows hosting infrastructure, as well as an impressive lineup of cloud-computing solutions from leading vendors on IT subjects related to hosting, storage, networking and more.
By participating, attendees learn how to boost profits and activate new cloud computing customers quickly and efficiently—they also receive free admission in addition to walking away with a rock guitar USB drive containing all presentations and a chance to win an Xbox 360 and Guitar Hero game. Since inception, Merit Mile has managed 15 events in the US, Canada, South America and Australia for Microsoft. To learn more about this event and sponsorship opportunities, please click here.
