IntelliNet Picks 365 Data Centers to Host Cloud Service

IntelliNet, a managed services provider, has chosen 365 Data Centers’ Cleveland facility to host part of its IntelliNet Cloud service.

The company cited 365’s commitment to reliability.

"IntelliNet offers a variety of sophisticated technologies but cloud solutions are only as good as the power source and data center they are housed in," said Ronald Taton, president at IntelliNet. "We work in a high-growth industry where competitors are constantly trying to steal market share, so if a data center goes down and you don't have redundant, reliable systems backing up your data and applications then you will lose business. We've experienced zero downtime in seven years and couldn't be more pleased with our relationship with 365 Data Centers."

The company also chose 365 Data Centers for its selection of carriers, compliance certifications and fiber convergence.

IntelliNet is hosting part of its IntelliNet Cloud service, which offers its customers hosted virtual servers, virtual desktops, IaaS, PaaS, disaster recovery, and email services, among others.

The provider, also based in Cleveland, initially hosted everything on-premises, but a series of power outages forced them to look to an outside data center. 365’s data center happened to be in the same building as IntelliNet’s, making the decision to outsource its infrastructure and management to 365 seven years ago even easier.

IntelliNet has experience no downtime since going with 365, which 365 says is the result of its commitment to 100 percent uptime.  The support enables IntelliNet to focus on its core business.

"The potential costs of data center downtime can have grave business consequences not just for our clients but for the consumers and businesses that use their services," said Keao Caindec, chief commercial officer for 365 Data Centers. "365's operations teams work diligently to maintain 100 percent uptime and deliver the highest level of service and performance possible from our facilities. As evidence of that, we are the only company to achieve five critical compliance certifications across all of our facilities."
