Atlanta (PRESS RELEASE – January 22, 2011) – Cbeyond, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBEY), a leading provider of IT and communications services to small businesses, today announced the company has made virtual servers and managed dedicated servers, a recent addition to its robust portfolio of technology solutions, widely available to small and medium-sized businesses across the U.S. and in more than 60 countries.

Virtual and dedicated servers by Cbeyond are now available through all of Cbeyond’s sales channels.

If businesses are serious about growth in 2011, it’s time to look to the cloud.”

The server requires very little configuration and all the updates are automatically done – now that is peace of mind!” said Shawn Bordeaux, chief information officer for Just Right Auto Sales, a Cbeyond Cloud Services customer that also leverages Cbeyond’s broadband, data and security solutions to run and grow his business.
