ISG Technology announced today a new Data Center facility being constructed in Topeka, KS. The new 17,000 square foot building will house both a 10,000 square foot Data Center as well as ISGs local Topeka operations. The Data Center will be the fourth in ISGs network of Data Centers and is scheduled to be online in early 2013.
The Data Center will offer businesses the ability to co-locate production systems, have off-site disaster recovery or the option of running their business systems in ISGs Cloud. For those companies that require additional security, the new Data Center will be able to offer private cages and suites. This provides an added layer of protection to business critical data.
Midwest businesses understand the importance of having an off-site solution for critical business data, states John Gunn, President of ISG Technology. Whether it’s a fire, power outage or even a server failure, businesses can’t afford to be down. The addition of this Data Center will give businesses access to another state-of-the-art facility for their disaster recovery needs.
In addition to co-location and disaster recovery, the new Data Center in Topeka will be connected to ISG’s Cloud Services Data Center using high bandwidth connections. With Cloud Services, a business can run specific applications or their entire business system on ISGs virtual server infrastructure.
This is one of the biggest shifts in the IT industry as businesses look to move away from managing and upgrading their own IT equipment so they can focus on running their business, states Gunn. ISG is a proven and trusted Data Center Services partner. While there are many companies announcing their intentions to provide Cloud Services, the Topeka Data Center is a continuance of ISGs nearly decade long commitment to the cloud. We’ve been managing our clients off-site business data for more than 10 years.
ISGs full suite of Data Center Services includes infrastructure as a service to host and manage a businesses complete IT environment, web and email hosting, data backup services, disaster recovery, collocation services and more.
ISGs new Data Center in Topeka will be an addition to their existing network of Data Center facilities. Currently, ISG operates an underground Data Center in Columbia, Missouri, a Data Center in Wichita, Kansas and offers Data Center services at 1102 Grand in Kansas City. The Data Centers will be connected by fiber, allowing for communication and DR capabilities between all facilities.
The Topeka data center represents our first major infrastructure investment in ISG that leverages ISGs existing expertise in cloud computing and managed services, added Ben Foster, Chief Executive Officer of ISG Technology & Twin Valley Communications. ISGs ability to offer small & medium businesses the full spectrum of solutions ranging from complete off-site computing to premise-based solutions has been enhanced by our strategic relationship with Kansas Fiber Network and its partners. For the first time, clients will be able to deal with one IT vendor for their bandwidth and equipment solutions. As our clients continue to recognize the potential of the cloud on their business, we will continue to invest in the technology infrastructure that will give them an advantage in their markets.
