8KMiles to Showcase Services and Celebrate Community Milestone at SMB Nation

Outsourcing-as-a-Service Vendor to Mark Substantial Growth and Showcase Cloud-Based Services at SMB Nation in Las Vegas, October 2-4

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/29/09 -- 8KMiles, a leading provider of on-demand workforce and cloud computing infrastructure, today announces its latest milestone with the addition of over 6,000 members to its online marketplace in just 6 months since its launch. To continue to meet the demands of its rapidly growing community of SMBs, 8KMiles will be exhibiting at this year's SMB Nation, October 2-4 in Las Vegas to showcase its current services, as well as provide a sneak peak of its soon to be launched voice-enabled services.

8KMiles online marketplace offers SMBs:

--  A vast network of highly-skilled service providers including
    background check and skills testing
--  Project management tools and online collaboration including video
    conferencing, instant messaging and environment with fine grained controls
--  Secure cloud-based Virtual Computing Environment (based on Amazon EC2)
    and integrated infrastructure to outsource and carry out projects online
    using cloud-based software and ready to use development environments

Through 8KMiles' vast network of highly-skilled professionals and cloud computing infrastructure and services, SMB can safely and securely outsource their projects online with complete visibility and control. SMBs simply log-in, create their profile, search and select talent for their projects and then lease virtual company infrastructure on an hourly pay-as-you-go basis, with no upfront costs.

But the service goes further, offering a collaborative platform for projects. With browser-based tools, SMBs can attack and manage projects with video conferences, message boards, and more. Users can even install their own tools in the Windows and Linux environments offered through the 8KMiles marketplace.

"Our rapid growth is testament to the fact that our service is addressing a staunch need. Unlike the big outsourcing giants, 8KMiles is enabling SMBs to take advantage of cloud computing economics and real world IT outsourcing, essentially allowing SMBs to set up a global business online without a real world footprint," said Dr. Suresh V. Chari, founder and CEO of 8KMiles. "By leveraging recent advances in cloud computing, 8KMiles is not only allowing SMBs to circumvent the risk and heavy capital investment historically required to starting and running a business today, it is also leveling the playing field."

8KMiles not only offers huge cost savings for SMBs, it also offers greater revenue generating opportunities for seasoned IT and business development professionals. IT professionals, SMB consultants and business development professionals are now able to sign up as service brokers and create their own Virtual Company with 8KMiles. In doing so, they can connect with other professionals with specific domain knowledge within the 8KMiles network, team up and offer services as a specialist project team, enabling them to work on high-value projects as well as sell value-added services within the 8KMiles marketplace.

8KMiles also provides intuitive dashboards for service brokers, enabling them to effectively manage the accounts and their pipeline, arming them with all the tools and communications mechanisms required to ensure a successful project. Furthermore, service brokers can earn attractive compensation by negotiating rates with their service providers and also reselling the virtual computing infrastructure offered through 8KMiles.

In addition to showcasing its core services, 8KMiles will also discuss its upcoming unveiling of a new suite of voice-enabled services at SMB Nation, aimed at improving voice solutions and adding functionality for SMBs. 8KMiles will exhibit at SMB Nation, October 2-4, at Riviera Hotel & Casino, Booth #225. Attendees can also participate in 8KMiles' raffle for the chance to win 200 hours of access to cloud computing infrastructure with which to execute projects online.
