Top tier data center to provide high-availability, mission-critical facility space for OnX clients
TORONTO and NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2016 /CNW/ -- OnX Managed Services, a leading enterprise data center IT solutions provider, today announced a partnership with top tier data center provider New Continuum that expands the data center capabilities of the North American service provider.
The partnership brings together world-class data center capabilities with an outcome-focused managed services offering. New Continuum's Midwest data center, located in the western Chicago suburbs, will house OnX clients' data in a cloud-based environment with multi-tenant capabilities, private cloud or a hybrid combination of both. The facility is an 80,000-square-foot, purpose-built, high-density, concurrently maintainable data center with high performance computing for SAP HANA and other high in-memory computing instances, such as business intelligence.
"While OnX maintains its own data center facilities in both the United States and Canada, it is our strategic direction to meet double-digit market demand through partnering with world-class data center providers such as New Continuum," said Wayne Kiphart, President, OnX Managed Services. "We know that our clients are looking for the highest levels of security, availability and performance, and we know that we have found that in our partnership with New Continuum."
"I am thrilled our company has been selected by OnX Managed Services to help them meet their data center infrastructure requirements. I think this is a testament to the outstanding facility itself, as well as our team- and service-oriented approach," said Eli Scher, Chairman and CEO, New Continuum. "I know that having a strong managed services provider in the building will help our customers achieve their strategic objectives for IT. We have invested heavily in connectivity, power and cooling, but we need world-class partners like OnX Managed Services to manage the compute. The partnership with OnX allows each of us to focus on our core strengths while benefitting one another in the process. We are excited by the potential."
In addition to offering managed production in the New Continuum data center, OnX will offer a range of data protection services, including data backup, disaster recovery and full dual data center high-availability solutions to protect clients against loss of critical information as well as downtime.
