PEARLAND, TX — October 10, 2019 - LABUSA, a provider of cloud-based managed services, announces that the company has been awarded Contract 190701 (Web Hosting, Services, or Content Management) by The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS).

The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS) is the purchasing cooperative of Region 8 Education Service Center, the Lead Public Agency that manages the contract. Approved agencies can utilize the contract for their purchasing needs. Under the scope of the new contract, LABUSA can support agencies with web hosting, and cloud-based Software as a Service including email and electronic fax.

“The new contract offers clients the ability to deploy fully managed websites, learning management systems (LMS), and content management systems (CMS). The hosting is a multi-cloud environment, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and a Data Center facility in Houston, Texas. The systems’ scalability, flexibility in levels of control, and support are some key advantages to the service offerings.”, said Martin Laster, President of LABUSA.

The LABUSA hosting solutions operate under ITIL-based controls and compliance against HIPAA, PCI DSS, and SOC frameworks. Integration between its Houston Data Center and third-party cloud providers Amazon and Azure helps reducing development cycles. The capabilities to integrate with secure cloud-based telephony applications, helps LABUSA differentiate from other providers that do not provide high-end hosting solutions.

“Beyond just another web development and hosting platform with lots of features, LABUSA has disaster recovery (DR) services that provide its clients with the confidence of knowing its workload can continue. Agencies can redefine their business rules to protect data better and quickly recover from human error, natural disasters, and even ransomware attacks. The DR capabilities in LABUSA virtualized environments can dramatically reduce the impact to operations.”, said Martin Laster.
