State-of-the-art data center offers increased capacity to better serve customers and manage Software-as-a-Service offerings
Sep 29, 2009
BOTHELL, Wash. - September 29, 2009 - Vertafore (http://www.vertafore.com), a leading provider of software and services to the insurance industry, announced today that it plans to move its largest data center to Savvis' state-of-the-art hosting facility in Fort Worth, Texas.
Vertafore will continue to manage its SaaS-based products internally, while Savvis - a global leader of managed and outsourced IT services - will operate Vertafore’s scale-related IT infrastructure. Vertafore’s products will continue to run on company equipment managed by Vertafore employees.
"The new data center will give our customers faster results and greater peace of mind," said Darryl Lemecha, Vertafore CIO. "Savvis' facility allows us to better accommodate the rapid growth of our SaaS offerings, and our customers will benefit both from Savvis' dedication to data center infrastructure and from continued product innovation from Vertafore. This move will allow us to focus on what we do best: creating, delivering and supporting our suite of industry-leading products."
By co-locating its hosting services in the Savvis facility, Vertafore will significantly increase its network performance through greater bandwidth and connectivity. Additionally, the facility is highly secure and redundant, offering 24x7 surveillance and generators to ensure uninterrupted availability of Vertafore’s hosted solutions.
"Savvis' experience in providing a full range of hosting and SaaS services makes us uniquely qualified to support Vertafore as its needs grow and change," said Bryan Doerr, chief technology officer, Savvis. "We are excited to support such a fast-growing company and help it benefit from new services that will help transform its business."
The move, which should be completed by May 2010, will be seamless due to the use of remote data replication and duplicate hardware. Customers will not experience any disruption to their service during the transition.
Savvis operates 28 data centers globally, encompassing more than 1.4 million square feet of raised floor space designed to support enterprise IT operations. In addition, Savvis was recently positioned as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Hosting and Cloud Infrastructure (on Demand), 2009, and can be accessed at www.savvis.net/magicquadrantleader.
