Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) July 14, 2008 -- DataChambers, a North Carolina-based technology firm, today announced that the Premier healthcare alliance has renewed and significantly expanded a multiyear contract with the company for disaster recovery and business continuity services.
Premier operates one of the nation's leading healthcare purchasing networks and the most comprehensive repository of hospital clinical and financial information in the country. Its clients include more than 2,000 U.S. hospitals and 53,000 other healthcare provider sites. In 2006 Premier received the nation's prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, which was established by Congress to enhance the competitiveness and performance of U.S. businesses.
"Premier not only excels in the highly competitive market for healthcare services, but also is setting performance benchmarks that most companies only aspire to," said Nicholas Kottyan, CEO for DataChambers. "We're helping them deliver a level of service that sets them well apart from other providers in the marketplace."
Premier's contract with DataChambers ensures the continuity of services it delivers to its customers in the event a system or network connection fails or its offices are inaccessible. DataChambers provides managed, high-availability data center services, redundant high-speed Internet bandwidth and disaster recovery workspaces that can be used in the event staff members are displaced.
"Nowhere is business continuity more imperative than in the healthcare field," said John Huddle, senior director of infrastructure at Premier. "Our clients count on us to deliver uninterrupted access to information and services so they can reduce costs and boost the quality of their operations. With the experienced team, high-security data center and state-of-the-art disaster recovery center that DataChambers provides, we're confident we have the resources we need to succeed."
Both DataChambers and Premier have significant operations in North Carolina. Premier has nearly 650 employees at the LakePointe Corporate Center in southwest Charlotte and recently announced plans to expand its footprint in the city by as much as 40%. DataChambers is headquartered in Winston-Salem on an 80-acre campus that includes an underground hardened data center and workforce recovery area. In March DataChambers announced it has expanded into the Charlotte market with an 85,000-square-foot facility at Ridge Creek Business Park.
DataChambers meets the demand of small and medium businesses for stable, secure, long-range information management and business continuity. The company specializes in electronic data storage, network and monitoring solutions, managed information technology solutions, co-location services, secure tape vaulting, and offsite records storage and management.
