Built on a partnership between established technology companies, the StartPaq offers companies a fully scalable solution for their site hosting requirements. "The concept is not unique. What differentiates StartPaq is the added value for the customers in the long run" says Hans Ristner, CEO at Driftbolaget. "StartPaq is a great addition to our core service offering. It gives Driftbolaget the opportunity to target smaller companies with the same quality of service it has been providing to larger corporations. StartPaq will operate as a digital nursery, providing small projects with a fully scalable, cost-effective solution that will grow with their requirements." This cooperation has been an initiative of Compaq Computer in Denmark and sees Driftbolaget strengthen its strategic partnerships with Compaq, Microsoft and Oracle. StartPaq is based on Compaq´s standard products, Business Critical Servers and Industrial Standard Servers along with software from Microsoft and Oracle. "StartPaq is initially launched in Denmark, but we expect similar operations to soon be implemented in our Hosting Center in Stockholm", concludes Hans Ristner.
