NEW YORK, NY — December 17, 2007 — Logicworks, a leading provider of high-availability hosting solutions to support business-critical applications and content, today announced it has joined the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP). Achieving greater levels of flexibility, scalability, and consolidation by leveraging VMware Infrastructure, Logicworks can help customers optimize their hosted IT environments.
