(Gawkwire) – Today, Vital Support Systems announces Symmetry Corporation has selected to expand their IT environment into Vital’s Tier 3 data center space near Madison, Wis.
“Our rapid growth in the hosting/cloud market, along with demands by new clients, put our search for a world-class state-of-the-art Tier 3 data center facility on the fast-track,” said Dan Wilhelms, Symmetry founder and board member. “We needed to find a new, competitively priced facility that could match our best-in-class service model. We were also looking for a facility that would allow us to not only meet, but exceed, the high quality of service our clients expect from Symmetry. We found that partnership with Vital.”
According to Symmetry, the company evaluated at least six vendors, including the facilities’ quality assurance and price point. Wilhelms noted, “Vital stood above the competition in standards, its support model and value to Symmetry. The cultural fit between Symmetry and Vital’s employees was also highly compatible.”
Symmetry Corporation provides technical managed services, security administration and project consulting in support of SAP solutions for customers in the U.S. and around the world. Based in Milwaukee, Symmetry has experience in Basis, the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform and security consulting. With a proven methodology for delivering technical managed services in support of SAP software, Symmetry delivers flexible, high-quality solutions that help businesses reduce the total cost of ownership and enable high-performing, secure, stable SAP solution-based environments.
“Our client base is rapidly growing in diversity and size,” Wilhelms added. “Their requirements are evolving and we need to be able to ensure our end-to-end hosted solutions provide the peace of mind they are looking for.”
Wilhelms goes on to say, “We chose Vital for several reasons. First, we were impressed and proud to tout a partnership with a Fortune 500 company. And, we chose them because our quality service is now backed by an accredited data center partner who is certified, highly secure and able to scale up quickly. In addition, they are located in a disaster safe zone, reliable and designed to the highest of industry standards.”
Vital Support Systems provides IT network and systems solutions. In addition, Vital provides cloud infrastructure, colocation and managed services through sister companies VISI Inc. and OneNeck® IT Services Corp. Together, the companies are part of TDS Hosted & Managed Services, LLC (TDS HMS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Telephone and Data Systems. With the redundant infrastructure TDS HMS has established, their Tier 3 data center near Madison is fault-tolerant and guarantees application uptimes beyond the norm. Even if a critical component is taken down, data center services will not be interrupted.
“We are excited about the synergy between Symmetry and Vital,” said Phil LaForge, president of TDS HMS. “We’re able to showcase our enterprise-grade facility in Wisconsin. Plus, Symmetry now has the proper architecture and capacity to adhere to the needs of their growing customer base. Along with our experienced team of IT professionals, our SSAE 16 compliance, redundant connectivity and onsite monitoring, we’re providing Symmetry with the stable, agile environment their customers expect.”
