Welcome aboard to SoftLayer and Edublogs September 28, 2008

Posted by ClustrMaps Team in News.

We’re pleased to announce the addition of SoftLayer and Edublogs to selective sponsorship roles, which means that a dedicated ‘Sponsor:’ banner slot in the upper right of some our large world map pages has been made available to them on a rotating basis.

We have a special relationship with both: SoftLayer is our dedicated hosting provider, and supplies the robust hosting infrastructure and support team that underpins the ClustrMaps server farm. We have been absolutely thrilled with their overall quality of service, performance, reliability, price, feature set, speed and ease of use! [Note: no one advised me about how or whether to write the preceding sentences: I can’t help it – we love ’em!]. Edublogs (“Blogging for teachers and students, made easy”) runs a WordPress-powered blog-hosting solution for educators and students of all ages. Moreover, they have taken a WordPress-specific widget that we developed and made it a prominent part of their widget pack, thereby making it drag-and-drop simple for Edublogs users to add a ClustrMaps widget to their sites. They also provided (via The Edublogger) some very nice screen grabs and instructions for their users, as we indicate on our relevant instruction pages. [OK, no one advised me about any of that wording either – we love them too!]
