OTTAWA, May 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Grade A, a leading Ottawa-based managed IT company with over 600 corporate customers has selected Granite Networks to be its primary data centre facility. Granite Networks is Ottawa and Eastern Ontario's only data centre designed to meet Tier 3 and LEED standards.
“Grade A has extensive experience working within the data centre industry,” said Grade A CEO Alan Ghosn. “As a company, we have deployed or managed over 5800 servers to date. We not only understand what is required to run an ultra reliable internet infrastructure - we demand it.”
Built to industry leading standards, Granite Networks' Tier 3 Ottawa data centre includes multiple certifications and provides 100% redundant mechanical, electrical and networking facilities. “Granite's carrier and vendor neutral Ottawa data centre is absolutely ideal for companies that require 100 % up-time for their server or internet infrastructure,” said Granite Networks CEO Rainer Paduch.
As a managed IT company, Grade A builds, plans and manages IT for hundreds of businesses. We are extremely thorough and tough minded when it comes to investigating and recommending major IT decisions for our clients,” said Ghosn. “Prior to selecting Granite, we spent many hours reviewing their facilities, support procedures and security apparatus. We were extraordinarily demanding when it came to reviewing Granite's power, network, security, support, and even their financials. Grade A audited Granite to ensure that we were completely satisfied that Granite had the right staff, the financial wherewithal and the proper corporate culture to provide 100 % up-time to our customers,” said Ghosn. “I am very pleased to say that Granite met our expectations with flying colours.”
“Grade A is one of the top managed IT companies in Canada. They have an enormous amount of expertise in building and managing IT infrastructure, so getting the stamp of approval from Grade A would mean a great deal to any data centre company – not just Granite,” said Granite Networks CEO Rainer Paduch. “Smaller organizations with less developed IT expertise can confidently move their internet infrastructure to Granite's Ottawa data centre knowing that the facility has already been vetted by a top notch managed IT firm like Grade A.”
