ATLANTA, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of intelligent IT Infrastructure services, today announced that YouSendIt, Inc., a leader in cloud-based collaboration services, is leveraging Internap's managed hosting, scalable storage and global Performance IP™ network. Internap's IT Infrastructure portfolio delivers the flexibility, capacity and performance requirements needed to meet the demands of YouSendIt's rapidly growing customer base.
YouSendIt provides a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based collaboration solution to more than 20 million registered users worldwide.

Seeking a highly flexible and customized solution that better supports its evolving global infrastructure needs, YouSendIt recently switched its European data center operations to Internap.
"We chose Internap because of its unique ability to offer the complete, holistic IT Infrastructure package that we were looking for, which balances flexibility, superior support and cost effectiveness," said Paul Massie, senior director of operations and IT at YouSendIt.

This flexibility is backed by the performance and high reliability our users demand."
YouSendIt is using Internap's managed hosting solution and route-optimized Performance IP network to maintain data for its European customers and meet file transfer performance requirements for users across Europe. Additionally, YouSendIt is using Internap's highly-scalable storage solution to support its new cloud collaboration service, announced earlier this week. Internap's storage solution provides flexible, elastic storage that can easily expand with YouSendIt's capacity needs.
"As global solution providers rapidly expand their businesses and services, their needs are becoming broader and more complex," said John Freimuth, vice president of business development and hosting at Internap. "Organizations like YouSendIt are turning to Internap based on our ability to offer a full range of IT platforms to meet their current and future needs, underpinned by high-performance connectivity solutions that deliver best performance to their end users."
