ViaWest reduces risk associated with natural disasters as data center operations are consolidated into hybrid development which allows ARS to focus on driving business efficiencies.
The company said ARS consolidated its collocation space into a smaller footprint and move into a ViaWest data center.
Additionally, ARS migrated many of its applications and workloads into ViaWest’s cloud.
ViaWest said it has worked with in conjunction with CDW on this project.
In addition, customers can create flexible solutions for their specific IT needs by combining traditional collocation services with cloud computing.
“ViaWest helped us understand how a migration to cloud services could relieve the pressures of maintaining an older data center and how we could manage differing workloads with agility and scale,” said Kevin Worley, chief information officer & vice president of IT at ARS.
In May, Grand Canyon University selected ViaWest Arizona data center to support IT plans and to better curriculum options for its computer science department.
Also, Extra Space Storage tapped ViaWest data center and managed services to support its production and disaster recovery.
