Host NewsHOUSTON – The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting, today announced it has once again been named to Deloitte’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Texas. The annual survey ranks the 50 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in Texas based on percentage revenue growth over five years.

The Planet’s increase in revenues of 259 percent from 2003 to 2007 resulted in a No. 41 ranking in the Technology Fast 50 for Texas. This is the third consecutive year The Planet has been included on the list.

“Sustaining high revenue growth over five years is an exceptional accomplishment,” said Skip Moore, managing partner of Technology, Media and Telecommunications for Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We commend The Planet for making the commitment to technology and delivering on the promise of market longevity. We are proud to name The Planet to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50.”

“Texas increasingly hosts a strong technology market, evidenced by the caliber of companies named to the Deloitte Technology Fast 50,” said Steve Kahan, The Planet’s vice president of Marketing and Product Management. “Our own company continues to see growth rates that consistently outpace the hosting industry. We attribute that growth to the significant investments we have made in our data centers, network, call center operations and our people, highlighting our commitment to provide our global customer base with the power to choose from a broad range of solutions.”

To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2003 and $5 million in 2007, and be headquartered in North America.
