As part of the multi-year agreement, Sahara Force India can count on a reliable, high-performance web hosting environment to deliver a first class website to its global fan base.

The solutions from Internap will help the team distribute its content – including high-definition images, videos, live streaming and social media – to fans and members of the press worldwide on computers, smartphones, tablets and other devices. Internap also gives Sahara Force India the global footprint to seamlessly support local spikes in website traffic across the various countries where races are taking place.
Dr. Vijay Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director of Sahara Force India: “Growing our brand and our international fan base requires that we build a strong web presence. But the global nature of our sport means that this presence is always on the move, so our fans need to be able to follow us whether they are at the track or on the other side of the world.
