LOS ANGELES, CA - (NewMediaWire) - October 20, 2015 - GAWK, Inc. (OTC PINK: GAWK) announced the successful implementation of its Cloud and Edge Data Center Services offerings in 21 countries in addition to 31 major cities with 16 cities in the US. Scott Kettle, CEO of GAWK, Inc., said, "GAWK has joined the OnApp Federation (onapp.com), and consequently we can now compete with the all global giants, including Amazon, whose presence is in the same number of countries. This will increase our potential revenue significantly, while lowering our costs of doing business."
Kettle added that the Company posted the best quarter, ending July 31, 2015, since its inception, reporting that revenue was up 952%. Kettle continued, "In addition to our most recent customer win, HEMP, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), this is another major step forward in our long range plans of acquiring data centers in Tier 2 cities, both locally and abroad, while offering a superior suite of services to our customers"
According to Henry Clarke, CEO of WebRunners, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of GAWK, "The last twelve months as a member of the growing Gawk family of companies have been terrific for our customers and our team." Clarke continued, "WebRunners has been at the forefront of virtualization technology for several years but our OnApp platform takes us to a new level of reliability, scale and value for our customers. We can now offer self-service IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), fully customized Cloud packages, bare metal and dedicated servers; then we raise the bar with high availability, backup services, and global reach for customer's websites, apps and streaming needs. Our build requirements for this platform were high; the OnApp team exceeded all of our expectations and delivered great platform."
