Coleman Technologies, Inc. Taps Data Foundry’s Austin Data Center for Disaster Recovery Needs

Dec 5, 2008

Austin, TX – Coleman Technologies, Inc. (CTI™), a leading network engineering and integration firm, selected Data Foundry to provide colocation services for geographic redundancy to CTI’s existing critical infrastructure. CTI selected the Data Foundry® Austin Data Center after conducting a nationwide search for data center facilities that could meet this strategic initiative.

Data Foundry provides an enterprise class data center that securely houses CTI’s equipment, providing a redundant colocation facility which supplements existing CTI facilities in Orlando, FL. CTI also benefits from Data Foundry’s carrier neutral philosophy by establishing private network connectivity to a nationwide telecom provider currently built-out in Data Foundry’s Austin Data Center.

“Austin hosts many of the technology companies we work with, so it was a natural starting point for our search. Austin is also a sound geographic location for redundancy, backup, and disaster recovery operations,” said David Winter, Manager of the Managed Services Group at CTI. “Data Foundry fit our criteria for various reasons. Carrier neutrality was an important factor in our decision and Data Foundry was beyond obliging to our need to connect to an outside carrier. Their migration expertise, logistical planning, and overall quality of their Austin facility were also important factors. Ultimately, we wanted the best value, not a budget colocation facility and Data Foundry impressed with the people and technologies deployed at their facilities.”

Regarding CTI’s rapid expansion at Data Foundry’s Austin facility, Winter added, “When the time came to deploy more equipment at the facility, the Data Foundry staff was extremely responsive and accommodating.”

“Coleman Technologies’ colocation is a clear example of the major benefits Data Foundry offers to any client. Because our facilities are carrier neutral, we can easily set up network connectivity to just about every major carrier. Data Foundry is also readily able to facilitate significant and rapid expansion for any client. Within a month of joining our data center, CTI literally doubled their footprint with us. While such growth might require commitment above and beyond the call of duty at other facilities, rapid response and action are standards of service at Data Foundry,” said Mark Noonan, VP of Sales at Data Foundry.
