Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Components distributor VIP Computers is trying to distance itself from the recent collapse of near neighbour, Memsolve, as it moves on to the Web. It is set to open an ecommerce site and set itself up as an ISP. The Mancunian outfit, Voice Integrated Products (VIP), will launch CommPort, co-ordinating a national chain of retail Internet shops. Its second venture, Insight-Media, is an Internet service provider offering Web site design and maintenance, or full site hosting. The company was swift to allay fears that the diversification will lead it to moving away from its main market. Stan Cookson, VIP sales director, stressed: "Whenever a company makes fresh lateral moves, rumours fly regarding the business for which it is best known. I’d like to ‘nail’ this from the outset; VIP is not moving away from its main market. "The company’s commitment to trade-only computer and component distribution is long term and will remain its prime corporate consideration." ®
