iomart Hosts the Video Star! - wins managed hosting contract with Chillibean


iomart hosting is pleased to announce that it has won the contract to provide digital media company, ChilliBean, with managed hosting services.

London based ChilliBean was set up in 2005 and has quickly established a foothold in the digital media market. Its clients include some of the biggest names in global advertising, such as Sony and Saatchi &Saatchi, who trust it to manage and distribute their commercials to local agencies in key global territories. The local agencies then download and distribute the adverts across television, cinema and websites in country.

With so much data being sent back and forth across the world, an average of 40 terabytes per month, ChilliBean required a data centre partner with proven experience coupled with a resilient and reliable infrastructure.

Ben Smith, ChilliBean’s Chief Technical Officer, said: “We’re really proud of the clients we have and to hang on to them we have to be able to continuously prove that their important data is safe with us. To physically handle the data we need solid foundations for our hosting purposes. We have that with iomart hosting – there are a lot of hosting companies out there but we immediately felt that we could trust iomart hosting.”

He added: “When we met with iomart hosting they understood our world which is a great head start. We’re moving such a lot of content around and we wanted our hosting partner to have a grasp of our business.”

Cost was an issue too, said Ben. “We’re looking at some pretty hardcore storage solutions and we’d been quoted some silly prices in the past – iomart hosting had a very competitive pricing structure which made the decision that bit easier.”

Sarah Haran, Managing Director, iomart Hosting stated: “We’re delighted that ChilliBean have entrusted their hosting requirements to us. They are a fast growing, successful and vibrant company and we know that they have some very exciting growth plans. We look forward to helping them achieve their goals over the next few years.”

ChilliBean also handles all the digital media for the annual international awards programme organised by advertising charity D&AD, which recognises outstanding work in design and advertising.
