The Aldridge Company Listed Among Houston's Leaders for Cloud, IT Services

HOUSTON, May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Aldridge Company (, a leading provider, consultant and integrator of information technology (IT) and cloud computing solutions for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), is ranked among the Houston area's leaders in cloud hosting and IT services by the Houston Business Journal.

Based on the number of local full-time employees, The Aldridge Company is ranked sixth among Houston-area cloud service providers. This was the first time the Houston Business Journal compiled such a list. Cloud hosting allows businesses to utilize The Aldridge Company's IT infrastructure, security, and backup to store and access information, and deliver applications over the Internet. This can make it possible to avoid upfront infrastructure costs and to rapidly scale up or down to meet fluctuations in business demand.

Among the Houston-area's computer network and system integrators, The Aldridge Company ranked 12th, based on local gross revenue.

"At the Aldridge Company, our role is to help customers align their technology systems and processes with their business strategy by leveraging the right tools and removing IT obstacles," said Patrick R. Wiley, President of The Aldridge Company. "Ultimately, information is the most valuable asset of any business, and we are very proud and thankful that our customers entrust us to make sure their information is available when they need it wherever they need to access it."

The Aldridge Company's IT solutions include complete management of servers, PCs and networks coupled with rapid and accurate technical support. They also provide audits of security and disaster recovery readiness.

The Aldridge Company's hosting services include cloud hosting, dedicated servers and colocation, which provide constant and current data availability, security and stability, thus giving customers peace-of-mind and allowing them to focus on their business. Last year, The Aldridge Company geographically diversified its data center portfolio for colocation and cloud hosting needs by adding a data center in Phoenix, Ariz., one of the safest-from-natural-disaster cities in the U.S.
