(Gawkwire) – Vaultas, a premier provider of collaborative, vendor-neutral data center, collocation and BCDR (business continuity and disaster recovery) facilities in the Upper Midwest, today announced a technology partnership with MyTELEPATH, (http://www.mytelepath.com) a provider of managed communications services based in Minneapolis, Minn. By leveraging Vaultas’ redundant fiber-optic network and new colocation data center facility in Alexandria, Minn., MyTELEPATH will expand its Hosted PBX and Hosted Call Center offerings to businesses throughout the Upper Midwest.
MyTELEPATH is a leading provider of Managed Services and hosted Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services designed for the ever-changing communication needs of today’s businesses of all sizes. Through its technology partnership with Vaultas, MyTELEPATH will collocate critical IT equipment and infrastructure in Vaultas’ new Alexandria data center to support an expansion of its SMB VoIP offering and its nationwide Call Center services. Affordable and flexible access to Vaultas’ redundant fiber ring connecting Alexandria, Duluth and Minneapolis was critical to MyTELEPATH’s decision to proceed with a regional expansion.
“Nine years ago, we started by focusing on providing small to mid-sized business with a VoIP solution. However, as new opportunities have emerged, we have capitalized when and where it makes sense for our business,” said Mike Larson, partner MyTELEPATH. “Vaultas has opened up a new market for us in the Upper Midwest, and this partnership has already generated new customers and revenue acceleration for us—all made possible by Vaultas’ new Alexandria data center facility and their scalable and highly redundant fiber-optic network throughout Minnesota.”
Vaultas develops, owns, and operates vendor-neutral colocation data centers and business continuity and disaster recovery facilities that provide customers with secure, strategically located, private and semiprivate data center solutions that meet even the most stringent strategic and technical requirements. Vaultas’ vendor-neutral environments reduce TCO (total cost of ownership) for clients through effective use of infrastructure, vendor collaboration, network consolidation, energy conservation and strategic partnering.
“Businesses of all types across the Midwest are often thwarted in their aspirations to expand by lack of access to key infrastructure, including data storage facilities and even more frequently by lack of affordable and flexible network bandwidth,” said Vaultas President John Unger. “MyTELEPATH is a perfect example of such a business, with forward-thinking leaders and aggressive strategies, yet insufficient IT infrastructure to realize those plans. We are proud to partner with MyTELEPATH and help take their business plans to the next level, all while driving economic development in our home state of Minnesota.”
Since 2002, MyTELEPATH has delivered managed communication solutions to business customers that reduce CAPEX (Capital Expenditure) without increasing OPEX (Operating Expenses). MyTELEPATH continues to be an expert in IP Telephony. By leveraging emerging technology changes, the company has expanded nationally into other market segments, like call centers, over the last three years.
