StreetSmart, which asks diners in the nation’s top restaurants to give an extra £1 on top of their bill during the festive period, is the first UK Charity to have its website fully hosted and managed on iomart Hosting’s cloud platform.

Phil Worms, marketing director of iomart Hosting, said:” We’re very proud to be associated with StreetSmart and are pleased to be able to offer both our technical expertise and our cloud platform to this very worthwhile cause. Our CloudXtra service is perfect for organisations that require additional computing power to handle short term increases in demand such as StreetSmart’s Christmas campaign.”
