DynaSis, Atlanta’s premier provider of IT services and support for small and medium businesses (SMBs), today announced it will be providing turn-key IT services and support for Conway Data, Inc. a global data, media and communications services provider. DynaSis will be providing its 24/7/365 Digital Veins IT service, website hosting with backup/failover support, and infrastructure upgrades for the international powerhouse.
“DynaSis provided the best overall solution for us,” said Gary Nickerson, Digital Team Leader for Conway Data. “We wanted a vendor that could be a one-stop shop, and the team at DynaSis bent over backwards to provide the information we needed. We looked at 10 different vendors, and they were by far the strongest candidate.”
Conway Data’s search for a new IT service provider was propelled by the desire to update aging network hardware and other infrastructure elements and transition its six websites from in-house servers to a more reliable, fully protected cloud solution. At the same time, Conway wanted to replace its inefficient tape backup solution with a more functional alternative and achieve round-the-clock support for its desktops and servers, both physical and virtual. “24/7/365 support was very important for us, especially for our servers,” said Nickerson, “Many of the vendors we evaluated were not set up to do that.”
After installing Digital Veins and creating full image backups for Conway Data with its Boomerang backup service, DynaSis will transition Conway Data’s website to being hosted in the cloud at DynaSis’ world-class data centers with redundant backup and failover support. DynaSis will also assist with key infrastructure upgrades and work with Conway Data to help it isolate data that should be archived for long-term storage.
“Conway Data is like many progressive organizations—they have advanced business systems, but don’t have a partner that can ensure their IT solutions operate at the same level of sophistication,” said Ried Thiel, DynaSis’ Chief Information Officer. “We look forward to being that partner to Conway Data, helping them better leverage the benefits of technology while reaping maximum ROI.”
