Leading Provider of Location-based Solutions & Analytics Chooses Texas 1, a State-of-the-Art Facility in Austin

AUSTIN, Texas – March 25, 2014 – Data Foundry, a provider of global colocation and disaster recovery services, today announced that mobi, a leading provider of location-based software solutions, has selected Data Foundry’s Texas 1 as one of their data center facilities.

mobi provides powerful location-based routingtracking and analytics solutions for companies with field operations teams that face daily challenges in keeping their mobile workforce operating at peak efficiency. Delivered via a SaaS (software as a service) model, their solutions help customers better plan, oversee and evaluate each day in the field so they can increase productivity and reduce expenses.

Before choosing Data Foundry, mobi evaluated several Austin data centers. After touring Texas 1, a secure data center with multiple tiers of redundancy, they decided it was the right fit for its growing business needs.

“When we took a tour, it became apparent that there is a major difference between Texas 1, a purpose-built data center, and our other colocation facilities,” said Bryan Karp, vice president of operations, mobi. “Texas 1 is laid out beautifully, and Data Foundry’s knowledgeable support staff is always available. They have been instrumental in assisting our team.”

Because mobi’s product suite is primarily delivered via the cloud, they need a data center that offers extremely reliable power, cooling, carrier-neutral network services and robust physical security. Data Foundry’s stable infrastructure and knowledgeable engineering team provide mobi with peace of mind that the facility is being monitored continuously so their mission-critical applications are always available. The security, redundancy, disaster survivability, and 24/7/365 monitoring services of Texas 1 meet even the strictest requirements for mobi’s large, Fortune 500 customers.

“We pride ourselves on understanding the technical needs and the business objectives of each customer,” said Shane Menking, president, Data Foundry. “mobi can rest assured Data Foundry’s Texas 1 data center will meet their demands.”
