The following is a post from Jad Jebara, President & CEO of Tuangru, about joining the i2Coalition.
I am very pleased to announced that Tuangru has joined the Internet Infrastructure Coalition (or i2Coalition), an organization that supports those who build the nuts and bolts of the Internet.
i2Coalition believes the continued growth of the Internet is vital for growing an environment of innovation in North America and seeks to foster growth within the Internet infrastructure industry by driving others to harness the web’s full potential. Tuangru shares the organization’s passion for the Internet and the common goal of all members–to be the principle voice and leading advocate for the industry; an industry that is expected to generate an estimated direct and indirect $55 billion in annual revenue this year.
Tuangru levels the playing field amongst all hosting service providers through the power of group buying. We drive down an HSP’s price for mission-critical technology like servers and software, while drive up their ability to self-fund innovation and growth with the resulted savings. We do this by bringing together exclusive technology vendor pricing and the collective demand for their wares by many HSP clients to create a ‘win-win’ situation for both parties. This allows HSPs to aggressively pursue technology and service innovation that helps shape the future of the Internet.
