NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap Interactive, Inc. (OTCBB: STVI) (or "SNAP" or the "Company"), owner of AYI.com, announced today that SNAP recently completed a data center move that it believes will increase operational flexibility while delivering significant future cost savings.
SNAP's Chief Financial Officer Jon Pedersen commented, "Our recent move from managed hosting to a co-located facility where we own the equipment gives us full control over our development and production environments. We expect better performance, faster speed, and extra capacity for our AYI application, which will allow us to deliver a better experience to our users."
Mr. Pedersen continued, "This was a significant undertaking, something we have been working on since the end of 2012. We are extremely happy that the transition went smoothly and that we are now fully operational. We expect that our new data center will cost approximately $500,000 less to operate on an annual basis. This will allow us to better allocate our resources as we continue to grow our business."
