HostedLABS Data Backup Center

(Post: English)
" The idea of using data centers 'round the world to accommodate huge numbers of Web surfers isn't new. Akamai, for instance, which provides and manages servers, has done far-flung storage of "read-only" online content since 1999. "

Now, native Chicagoan Jason Rexilius is using the same concept for sites that require user input, such as blogs and small online stores.

Rexilius, 34, started HostedLABS in Evanston in 2004 and spent the next 2 1/2 years and $25,000 of his own money developing software.

For a fee, HostedLABS will place a client's data in data centers around the world, so that when too many people access the site from one location, the site won't shut down.

Instead, visitors can continue to access it via backup repositories.

Revenue came to $250,000 in 2007. But Rexilius predicts his four-person shop will hit $1.5 million this year.
