Once only available to large enterprises with big IT staffs, we can now offer the benefits of virtualization to businesses of all sizes," said Brian Fink, EarthLink Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer. "This major shift in the way businesses use and obtain Information Technology has huge market implications across all industries. Our virtualization, cloud computing and managed services are vital to helping customers utilize technology to achieve strategic business objectives and ensuring IT security and compliance."
