(Gawkwire) – ScaleMatrix, a San Diego based growth leader in the evolving Cloud and Colocation market, announced today that industry veteran John Teeling would join the organization as Vice President of Data Center Operations. Teeling is a seasoned data center expert with 20+ years of hands-on management and operational experience under his belt.
Teeling joins ScaleMatrix after more than a decade at Intuit, where he held several key management roles within the Enterprise Data Center Management and Operations Teams. His tenure included responsibilities for the operation and support of multiple state-of-the-art production-level Data Centers, including large scale MTDC’s responsible for hosting Intuit’s revenue generating offerings.
“Having held various responsibilities for both private Intuit owned data centers, as well as a number of 3rd party multi-tenant facilities around the US and Canada, I was immediately intrigued by the sophistication and efficiency of the new ScaleMatrix Dynamic Density Control™ platform. I’ve watched the evolution of enterprise data centers with great interest, and I believe that this new platform is a game changer. I am extremely excited to be part of a team who is redefining the value proposition for outsourced data center operations.” Teeling said.
John’s resume includes more than 10 years of data center operations and management experience, split between Intuit and Raytheon Technical Services, in addition to his distinguished career as a Navy Electronics and Computer Systems Specialist. He holds enterprise level process experience in Incident, Change, Problem and Asset Management, as well as ITIL V3 certification. John has overseen and led critical compliance and audit efforts at data centers throughout North America, helping implement and maintain operations in support of PCI, SSAE16, and AT101 type reporting. At Intuit, a technology focused Fortune 500 organization, he held responsibilities for Enterprise Incident Management as well as coordinating critical system maintenance and support with multiple vendors and support staff across multiple data center locations. John holds a M.S. degree in Telecom Systems Management and a B.S. degree in Electronics Management.
Teeling, whose new role and focus will complement the work ScaleMatrix is already doing as a leader in data center operations, will strengthen day-to-day operations of all ScaleMatrix data center facilities nationwide.
“As we continue to grow our high-density, high efficiency data center footprints across the nation, we are actively recruiting top talent to ensure that our clients receive the best support and services available anywhere.
