STORM Systems Selects USWeb/CKS

STORM Systems LLC, a developer of performance enhancement and infrastructure software for the Web, has hired USWeb/CKS of Santa Clara, CA to collaborate on creating the company's brand identity.

USWeb/CKS will refine and strengthen the positioning, name and graphic expressions of both STORM's corporate identity and product suite in preparation for the release of the company's first product in May. Billings were not disclosed.

In response to the demand for increased performance of the Web, STORM will offer a series of software solutions that speed performance and improve management of Web sites with large numbers of files and users. STORM's first product is based on a patent-pending server-side technology that dramatically increases the speed with which Web servers find, access and retrieve information.

"As a leader in the development of enterprise-level e-commerce initiatives, USWeb/CKS understands our market and the significance of our technology on a first-hand basis," said Sam Leinhardt, president and chief executive officer of STORM Systems. "The creativity, market savvy and impressive track-record of USWeb/CKS will help us to differentiate our products and establish STORM as an innovative company with practical solutions to a variety of operational problems resulting from the explosive growth of the Internet."

STORM Systems develops and markets software products that address the inherent limitations of Web-based applications and systems architectures. The goal is to provide solutions that allow Web sites to optimize, manage, monitor and control the resources they need to maintain state-of-the-art commercial sites and corporate intranets.
