ATLANTA, GA – December 12, 2010 — The National Football League’s Atlanta Falcons Football Club, currently 11-2 and tied for the best record in the NFL, has partnered with world class hosting and colocation provider NationalNet to provide managed hosting and data center solutions for the team’s core web properties. Under the terms of the agreement, NationalNet will provide the football club with its total suite of fully managed hosting solutions. The main Atlantafalcons.com website and a variety of high-profile ancillary websites will take advantage of NationalNet’s fully managed hosting solutions and be housed in their brand new cutting-edge Atlanta Data Center.
“We sought out a hosting provider that could not only handle our intense in-season traffic spikes but also manage a complex server configuration that ingests content from a variety of third-party sources,” said Dan Levak, Director of New Media for the Atlanta Falcons. “After a visit to their state-of-the-art data center in Marietta, Georgia and meeting with a diverse cross-section of their organization’s employees, it became clear that NationalNet was the perfect partner. The personalized support we’ve received throughout our engagement with them reinforced their reputation for unparalleled customer service.”
The Falcons re-launched their award-winning main website in September, and the franchise has been relying on NationalNet’s managed solution throughout a season that has seen huge crests in site traffic due to the team’s success and their preponderance of thrilling, last-minute victories.
“Our newly-launched website has performed flawlessly, even during times of intense traffic,” Levak said.
NationalNet CEO Tony Morgan has always approached his business in a similar fashion to Falcons Owner & CEO Arthur Blank, intensely focusing on superior customer service as a means to providing the highest quality product possible.
“Being born and raised in Georgia, I have been a lifelong fan of the Atlanta Falcons, having watched them play through the good times and the bad for more than 35 years”, said Morgan. “I have been so impressed watching the team’s current ownership and management with their strategic moves, both on and off the field, to bring to my hometown a world class football team. Nothing makes me any happier than to be able to put my professional team to work for their professional team.”
