(Gawkwire) – Today, VISI Inc. announced they have signed a three-year contract with SelectAccount, Inc., to provide ReliaCloud™ services for the leading health spending account administrator. VISI, a division of TDS Hosted & Managed Services, LLC (TDS HMS), will also provide enterprise firewall service, VPN, and managed services across all virtual machines for SelectAccount, which is among the largest health savings account (HSA) administrators in the country.
Its relationship with VISI will allow SelectAccount to consolidate many different business technologies into a series of custom Java applications. These custom applications, which were built in collaboration between SelectAccount and VISI, require a very specific and complex setup that enables multiple systems between SelectAccount and its health plan partners to communicate with each other. In essence, ReliaCloud will host a consolidation of multiple servers, which are a mix of Windows .NET and CentOS Java servers, located within VISI’s data center in Eden Prairie, Minn.
“VISI is a very capable hosting provider and they have developed a robust cloud offering,” said Nikki Stretar, vice president of Information Technology and Product Development for SelectAccount. “Working with VISI and using their cloud-hosting solution frees us from the limitations of physical server hardware and makes scaling to meet our business needs easier.”
VISI offers a comprehensive suite of products and services, including: colocation, managed services, hosted services, and cloud computing infrastructure for small- to enterprise-sized businesses throughout the Midwest. Through its sister company, Vital Support Systems, VISI also sells, installs, and manages IT infrastructure solutions from world-class hardware and software vendors such as Cisco, EMC, Hewlett Packard, VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix.
“We are proud to be working with SelectAccount as they consolidate their IT technologies,” said Terry Swanson, CEO of VISI. “Moving to our ReliaCloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will help them gain efficiencies and allow them to take advantage of our 100 percent uptime guarantee. This means, when they need their data most, it will always be accessible.”
