Fiber Optic Network and Data Center Collocation Services Combine to Help Drive Growth for Computer Support Specialists
Minneapolis, Minn.—Nov. 21, 2011—Vaultas, a premier provider of collaborative, vendor-neutral data center, collocation, and BCDR (business continuity and disaster recovery) facilities in the Upper Midwest, today announced a collaborative partnership with Lakes PC Help based in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
With the growth of virtualization technology, Lakes Area PC Help has experienced considerable growth over their 13 years in business; evolving from a provider of residential computer repair services to a robust offering that includes innovative technology solutions for the B2B market. The company was built on a reputation for excellent customer service and continually providing affordable, in-demand technology solutions to the local community. As a result of its partnership with Vaultas, Lakes Area PC Help is expanding its offering and its business operations with the creation of Wireless Data Systems, LLC. Currently in beta, Wireless Data Systems will provide web design, wireless access, web hosting and cloud computing to both residential and business customers in and around Alexandria, MN.
“The opportunity to significantly expand our geographic and product footprint to customers in both Detroit Lakes and Alexandria is largely driven by our new partnership with Vaultas,” said Lakes Area PC Help owner Tim Schacher. “With Vaultas’ state-of-the art data center facility, their 800 gigabit fiber-optic network, and access to many other network providers, combined with their team’s collaborative, can-do attitude, I’m now empowered to grow my business while providing the community with more-affordable wireless internet access. My critical data was previously stored in Texas, but now Vaultas gives me peace of mind with servers one hour away in Alexandria, and soon in St. Cloud—all providing my business complete control over my data and uptime.”
Vaultas develops, owns and operates vendor-neutral IT data centers and business continuity and disaster recovery facilities that provide customers with secure, strategically located, private and semiprivate data center solutions that meet even the most stringent strategic and technical requirements. Vaultas’ vendor-neutral environments reduce the TCO (total cost of ownership) for clients through effective use of infrastructure, energy conservation, vendor collaboration, network consolidation and strategic partnering.
“Vaultas is delighted to play a role in empowering the Alexandria business community with much-needed economic development and the most advanced colocation data center,” said Vaultas President John Unger. “Our new Alexandria data center facility is completed, bringing the local business community collocation solutions, data storage and backup solutions, web and application hosting, and high-speed internet access that scale to meet their requirements. We are pleased to play a role in the impressive growth and success of Lakes PC Help and their founders, and we look forward to many more such initiatives that drive economic growth throughout Minnesota.”
