ePlus Moves MSP Business Forward

By Doug Barney

ePlus Inc. is driving more MSP business into North Carolina with a new data center right in the heart of Raleigh. This is the third ePlus data center designed to support managed services.

 The MSP is focused on the North Carolina region with other offices in Charlotte, Morrisville and Wilmington, but serves clients across the U.S.

Raleigh is a strategic location for ePlus and holds a tremendous pool of technical talent in the Research Triangle Park area, from which we can grow our staff and broaden our service offering. In addition, the new Managed Services Center has proximity to many of our key partners, including Cisco and NetApp, which will enable us to expand our service capabilities to joint customers.”
