NEW YORK, March 8, 2013

NEW YORK, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --451 Research, a division of The 451
Group, is extremely pleased to announce that industry experts Al Sadowski and
Liam Eagle have joined the 451 Research team.

The lines between traditional colocation, hosting, and network service
providers are blurring. Cloud and virtualization technologies continue to
shape the way services are delivered, with these providers moving more
aggressively to cloud-style provisioning platforms. At the same time,
disintermediation along the IT value chain is spurring these same providers
into adjacent services. Al and Liam – and the entire Internet Infrastructure
Services research team – will be at the forefront of these transformative
changes, expanding the scope and depth of 451 Research's analysis.

Al Sadowski

For more than 20 years, Al has held management positions in software
development, network operations, product development and product management at
AT&T, Global Crossing and Level 3 Communications. He led global teams that
developed customer care applications, defined cloud strategies, managed
colocation product portfolios, and launched multiple network-based managed
services for the enterprise sector. Al is PMP-certified, and holds a BS in
Business Administration from Bryant University, and an MS in Management from
Stevens Institute of Technology.

Liam Eagle

Liam Eagle covers managed hosting, cloud, and mass-market hosting for the
Internet Infrastructure Services practice. Prior to joining 451 Research, Liam
covered the hosting services market as Editor-in-Chief of Web Host Industry
Review for more than 10 years, where he had a front-row seat to many of the
transformative trends shaping the industry, including the emergence of
virtualization and cloud technologies, and the development of the partner
ecosystem that underpins the hosting market. Liam also served as Co-Chair of
HostingCon for several years, where he built the educational program for one
of the industry's most highly regarded and well-attended events. Liam holds a
Bachelor of Journalism degree from Ryerson University in Toronto.

"Al and Liam bring a wealth of experience, insight, and expertise to the
Internet Infrastructure Services practice," said Simon Carruthers, Chief
Operating Officer, 451 Research. "With their knowledge of cloud and hosting
markets – and their long-standing involvement in the industry – they are
strong and welcome additions to the 451 Research team."
