)-- Hosted Solutions, the East Coast’s leading data center and managed services provider, today was named to Inc. magazine's annual Inc. 5000 ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. As a leader in the data center and a managed services industry, Hosted Solutions ranked No. 1274.
