HostMySite, a provider of cloud hosting solutions based in Newark, Delaware, has launched its ‘Light Up The Cloud Sweepstakes’, an 8-week contest aimed specifically at the start-up community. The contest, sponsored by Microsoft, will award one Microsoft Surface 2 a week, and a Grand Prize of $10,000 worth of cloud hosting with HostMySite using their new Cloud OS product offering.
From July 1st to August 26, 2014, entrepreneurs and developers will be able to submit a company photo, short description of their business, project or application, and how they would use $10,000 in free cloud hosting services from HostMySite for a chance to win weekly prizes and The Grand Prize. The winners will be announced and featured on the HostMySite website, blog, and social media platforms as the contest goes on.
“Oftentimes, the most difficult phase of any new service or application is getting it off the ground,” said HostMySite President, John Enright. “Our goal with this contest is to give some interesting projects an extra boost in the all-important launch phase, and to showcase the creative ways that developers and entrepreneurs are using new technologies such as HYPER-V, System Center, and the Windows Azure Pack from Microsoft.”
Entrepreneurs and start-ups can enter the contest here.
HostMySite’s Windows cloud hosting platform uses the Microsoft Azure management interface on top of its servers and network infrastructure, and includes free phone support from its team of support experts in its Newark, Delaware headquarters.
