Does your organization want $200,000 in technology services?

Need technology services and support at no cost?

Cloud computing and information technology (IT) company Claris Networks is conducting a contest that will benefit a Nashville area non-profit with up to $200,000 in technology services and support.

The contest consists of a nomination phase and a voting phase, with the winner being announced in November 2013. This marks the third year Claris Networks has held the contest, and the first time it has focused on the Nashville area.

“Investing in the communities we serve is very important to us,” said Larry Bodie, CEO of Claris Networks. “An upgrade of this caliber could be a game changer for a not-for-profit organization because they so often do not have the technology and support they need. By giving away this service, we hope to make one organization more able to serve this community.”

Previous winners of this donation include Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee in Knoxville and First Things First of Chattanooga.

Members of the Nashville community are encouraged to nominate their favorite organization via the Claris Networks website (http:/

To qualify, the organization must have between 5 – 35 full-time computer users and be headquartered or have an independent location in the Nashville Area. From the group of nominated organizations, a small group of finalists will be selected.

Then, public votes will determine the winner. The organization with the most votes will win up to $200,000 in cloud computing and IT services.The prize package includes three years of high-end information technology services and support.

These services include unlimited core infrastructure, network administration and technical support, managed backups, managed firewall, hosted Exchange email, Windows software and licensing, antivirus software, basic website hosting, and other miscellaneous technical services, support and hardware.
