ENP Newswire - 16 October 2013
Release date- 14102013 - EASLEY, S.C. - Encore Technology Group today announced that it has completed the build-out of its data center in Southfield, MI, a suburb of Detroit.
The new data center is one of several Encore is establishing to support its cloud services portfolio, a growing line of application delivery and infrastructure hosting solutions for organizations seeking lower-cost, cloud-based alternatives to traditional, on-premise information technology solutions.
'We continue to expand our solutions portfolio with new cloud-based offerings, and at the same time, we're seeing higher demand for our services from a nationwide client base,' said Michael Knight, CTO of Encore Technology Group. 'We're meeting this demand by investing in the infrastructure that serves as the backbone of our cloud services portfolio, and we're doing so in a strategic manner, with geographically dispersed data centers in secure colocation facilities.'
Encore selected Southfield-based 123 Networks as the colocation partner for its new data center, largely due to 123.Net's world-class facilities and positive reputation throughout the region. The facility in use by Encore in Southfield, which was purpose-built for data center operations, meets or exceeds all SSAE-16 standards and industry best practices. It features state-of-the-art security, climate control, and fire detection and suppression systems, as well as various eco-friendly aspects and an extensive electrical systems architecture with multiple backup power sources.
Encore owns and operates the equipment its team members installed within 123.Net's facility. Today, the best-in-class hardware and software, together with high-speed network connections, in Southfield are integral to the infrastructure supporting Encore's cloud services. Encore offers flexible, scalable and affordable cloud-based solutions for VoIP, backup and recovery, message archival and filtering, active directory replication, mobile device management, and more.
'Southfield was a logical choice because it's at the epicenter of an area of the nation where we're experiencing significant growth in our customer roster. And while this facility is aptly situated to support clients in Michigan and throughout the Midwest, all Encore clients benefit from ongoing infrastructure investments and every new data center we add to our network map. Each facility brings a new network point of presence online, and with our ringed and redundant architecture, each facility also increases overall network availability and processing power,' said Knight.
