BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Safe Technologies International Inc. (OTCBB:SFAZ), a cloud-based provider of mission-critical IT, backup and disaster recovery services, today announced it has selected Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE:RAX), the world's leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry, as its trusted hosting provider. Safe Technologies will be using Rackspace to enhance SFAZ's IT support deployments and Cloud Services Provisioning Speed. Safe Technologies chose Rackspace particularly for fast implementation time and the ability to scale along with the company's growth.

Christopher Kolb, President of Safe Technologies, commented: "Traditional hosting vendors do not offer the extensibility or cost efficiencies we realize with Rackspace. We look for solution partners that will scale with our growing business, allowing us to treat rapid infrastructure growth as an operational expense rather than an expensive, up-front capital expenditure. In addition, this kind of strategic partner provides SFAZ an inherently lower risk of technological obsolescence."

Rackspace delivers enterprise-level hosting services to businesses of all sizes and kinds around the world. With over 100,000 customers, Rackspace integrates the industry's best technologies for each customer's specific need and delivers it as a service via the company's commitment to Fanatical Support®.

"As the home of Fanatical Support, Rackspace strives everyday to deliver an outstanding customer experience," said Pat Cathey, Vice President of Sales. "We understand the pain points of running servers in-house and are excited to be able to take that burden away. We welcome Safe Technologies to the Rackspace fold and look forward to being their trusted hosting provider."
