We wanted a data center partner who maintains the highest levels of certification and compliance to guarantee that our customers are getting the best in the business.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Today, VISI Inc. announces End 2 End Technologies (E2E) is switching to its ReliaCloud™ service. E2E is also contracting with VISI for data center space and using the company’s ReliaCloud platform to build out Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for a number of customers.
“We wanted a data center partner who maintains the highest levels of certification and compliance to guarantee that our customers are getting the best in the business,” said Greg Crow, president and CEO, End 2 End Technologies. “We were also looking for a private cloud solution that provides scalability and reliability, as well as robust security. VISI and their ReliaCloud service meet all of these needs and more.”
VISI owns and operates a Tier III data center in Eden Prairie, Minn., which is certified by the Uptime Institute. With the redundant infrastructure VISI has established, the company is fault-tolerant and guarantees uptimes beyond the norm. Even if a critical component is taken down, data center services will not be interrupted. VISI is also working toward ISO 27001 certification, further demonstration of the company’s ongoing commitment to managing IT security risks.
“Many of our security-conscious customers require this level of commitment to standards and processes,” Crow noted. “We are always concerned about large-scale disasters, but with VISI’s built-in redundancy, we are confident we’ll be able to continue operating our business from remote data centers across state lines, should disaster strike. These features were very important in our decision-making process.”
According to Crow, finding cost effective solutions that provide great peace of mind were also an important part of the decision to choose VISI. Crow said, “We know that our private cloud implementations are built on the best technologies, at the best facilities, managed by the best technicians in the area. It's difficult to put a price on that peace of mind.”
E2E is a comprehensive solutions provider specializing in communication architecture design, network management, and total solutions for industrial wireless and commercial networked data systems. E2E often works with customers, both large and small, who are not able to host their own systems infrastructure for a variety of reasons.
In partnership with VISI, E2E is able to offer SaaS solutions for these customers. The relationship with VISI allows E2E to be very flexible in designing solutions for each customer situation. “And there are no uncertainties,” noted Crow, “about guaranteeing reliability or security for any of our implementations.”
“We are pleased to have been selected by End 2 End Technologies and to be working very closely with them as they design solutions for their customers,” said Terry Swanson, CEO of VISI. “The solutions they are implementing have many moving parts and are quite complex. Our experienced team of IT professionals is working closely to help facilitate the process and ensure all their needs are met.”
