Hostworks and HP with charity program

Application hosting provider, Hostworks, has joined forces with HP to throw combined weight behind the Inspire Foundation.

The national non-profit organisation was formed in 1996 in response to the high rates of youth suicide and attempted suicide and reaches out to troubled young people with a message of hope. It relies on its Internet-based services and websites to reach thousands of young people daily through its Reach Out program.

Hostworks is assisting the charity by providing fully managed, 24x7 services to ensure its site is access­ible . HP, which signed an agreement with Inspire in 2004 to provide technology for its Beanbag Centres, will offer IT infrastructure for the website.
