Greatresponder.com on Nov 01, 2012: Web hosting provider ViaWest announced providing co-location services for The University of Texas in Dallas. In a decision to deploy more cost-effective and efficient solution, UT Dallas outsourced its co-location service transformed to ViaWest instead of building its own data center. The move was after ViaWest signed healthcare IT services provider HMS as an anchor tenant at its Lone Mountain data center in the Northern Las Vegas area as a secondary disaster recovery site. ViaWest hosting has twenty four data centers that offer a wild range of options, including private suites, lockable cages, and half and full size cabinets. In addition to the hosting services, ViaWest provides a range of co-location solutions including physical security, disaster mitigation, fire detection and suppression over redundant infrastructure.
“Education is a vital resource that is experiencing tremendous growth rates due to a proliferation of data,” states John Greenwood, regional vice president of sales and general manager for ViaWest. “Many organizations like UT Dallas face challenges and complexities associated with building and managing their own data center versus outsourcing to a reliable partner. By outsourcing to ViaWest, UT Dallas can leverage power, utility and other system redundancies, in addition to ensuring they have the latest in technological innovations. With our expert operations and engineering teams in place, we strive to be a partner to universities like UT Dallas, allowing them to focus on their research developments, while we ensure the security and reliability of their IT infrastructure.
