bodHOST Achieves Accelerated Momentum in $148 Billion Market with CEO Appointment

Cloud & Dedicated Server Hosting Company

The “cloud” is overshadowing all information technology: charming the technicians with its “elasticity”. And only one cloud vendor offers true elasticity: bodHOST.

Edison, NJ, March 07, 2013

bodHOST, the technology leader in automated vertical scaling cloud computing, reported market gains that it attributes to the appointment of Probal DasGupta as chief executive officer in 2012. Under Probal’s leadership, bodHOST sought to accelerate its growth in the rapidly expanding cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market that will surpass $148 billion (worldwide) by 2014, according to Gartner.

Probal brings more than 20 years of senior leadership experience to bodHOST. After having served as Head of I.T. at Mittal Steel (precursor to ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steel manufacturer today) for 10 years, Probal was involved in a number of startups in the U.S., including several years of close cooperation with the Object Management Group (OMG) to propagate the Model Driven Architecture (MDA) paradigm worldwide. With his appointment as CEO of bodHOST, Probal brought that experience and wide industry connections to the company.

“bodHOST has developed an innovative and highly differentiated cloud infrastructure through its ground-breaking and patent-pending eNlight software, which alone – even today – provides automatic vertical scaling in the entire industry,” said Probal DasGupta. “With an established customer base of 1,500 enthusiastic cloud adopters, bodHOST is poised to become a major player in the $148 billion global market for cloud services. The Public Cloud segment in the U.S. alone is projected for compound annual growth rate of 41.7 percent from 2012 through 2016, and we are well positioned to capitalize on this dynamic growth by extending our eNlight offering across the IaaS market, including public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.”

“Probal is a great match for bodHOST. His vision of a cloud-based economy matches our vision for a new ecology of data centers and cloud services,” said Piyush Somani, President of bodHOST. “We have invested years of R&D in building eNlight, which is the best technology for resource-intensive and real-time applications, and we are ready for a broader audience that Probal can bring in. His leadership and expertise will spur the next phase of growth for bodHOST.”
