Storm Internet announced as finalist for two prestigious ISPA awards

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Multi-award winning hosting company Storm Internet Ltd. (, have been named as finalists for the third year running in both the Best Business Customer Service, and Best Business use of Cloud categories at this year’s highly prestigious Internet Service Provider Association (ISPA) awards.

The annual awards are the longest established and most respected awards in the internet industry, ran by the Internet Services Providers’ Association (ISPA UK) to herald the best of the Internet industry and to celebrate innovation and best practice. Competing against a number of industry leaders the competition is tough, but Founder and MD Salim Benadel is hoping to claim yet another award, giving them a hat trick for their third win at these awards in as many years.

Entrants had to put forward a case study for each submission including examples of how they had gone the extra mile for business and how adopting cloud technology has helped their customers to meet their business objectives, increasing their overall productivity.

Benadel comments “We’re delighted to have been short listed in these categories. Over the last 12 months we have continued to invest in our team, employing experts in individual areas to enable us to provide the best customer service possible. We also launched our Private Cloud solution, StormCloud Private, last month so to be named as a finalist in this category within such a short space of time is a huge achievement.” StormCloud Private combines the security and independence of a Dedicated Server, with the flexibility and scalability of the Public Cloud, at a cost significantly less than traditional Private Cloud services. It is this revolutionary product which has enabled them to become a finalist in the Best Business use of Cloud category.

“To make the finals in both of these categories is a testament to all of the hard work the team have put in over the last 10 years. We feel that the key to our success is our innovation and always putting the customer first in all that we do. We work closely with our customers by really getting to know their business, so that we can provide exactly what they need both now, and in the future,” Benadel concludes.

Responsibility for selecting the winners now lies with a high profile panel of expert judges which again this year is chaired by Andrew Ferguson, Think Broadband Editor. The winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on the 2nd July at The Brewery in the City of London.
