The Marussia F1 Team is pleased to announce a further new partnership for the 2012 season, with VPS.NET.

VPS.NET, a division of the UK2Group, has simplified the process of virtual private server cloud hosting making it available and affordable to everyday users, whilst giving small to medium enterprise users the flexibility they need to adequately scale and handle their growing IT demands.

Through the partnership with the Marussia F1 Team, VPS.NET will benefit from enhanced exposure in key European markets, where utilisation of cloud services is growing at a rapid rate. With VPS.NET launching new locations in both France and Germany this month, the relationship will help to build awareness for the company and its innovative technological capabilities to dynamically scale computing resources for each customer’s unique demands in relevant markets.

VPS.NET was one of the first cloud hosting providers and continues to match this progress with innovative products and services. The partnership with the Marussia F1 Team provides a fantastic opportunity to grow awareness on the global stage as the two brands are aligned in their quest for speed, innovation and success. 

The VPS.NET brand will benefit from exposure on the livery of the Marussia F1 Team’s new MR01 race car at selected Grand Prix this season, within the team’s trackside environment and further team collateral.

Andy Webb, CEO, Marussia F1 Team

“We are delighted to be growing the technology sector of our partner portfolio, which is further boosted with the announcement of VPS.NET today. Cloud computing is developing at a phenomenal rate, as are the advanced technologies required to keep pace in Formula One. VPS.NET and the Marussia F1 Team share similar goals in terms of our pursuit of enhanced performance, and of course our global ambitions, and we look forward to getting our new partnership off the ground.”

 

Rus Foster, Managing Director, VPS.NET

“Partnering with the Marussia F1 Team makes perfect sense for VPS.NET. As we are launching seven new clouds around the world, we want to associate ourselves with brands that think on an international level. And thanks to our instant deployment times for cloud services, our customers are used to Formula One speeds.”
