Thought Leadership Series: Per Werngren discusses Virtual Hosting

Check out the new series of Thought Leadership Series, featuring Accelerator! Per Werngren discusses about Virtual Hosting and how to Find success beyond operating data centers.

Description: Being a hoster has been a phenomenal business model for many years. The concept was easy: You built a datacenter in your own building or rented colocation space elsewhere, and then you bought hardware and expanded as needed. It was a simple way to earn good money when you did it right with a structured, industrial approach. But times are changing and by becoming a Virtual Hoster you can once again create success and grow your revenue and bottom line profits.
