365 Data Centers, one of the top U.S. colocation providers by market presence, today announced that Utopia Systems Inc., a provider of hosted Microsoft® Office solutions for small to medium-sized businesses, chose 365’s Philadelphia data center to deliver hosted software-as-a-service (SaaS) and managed service solutions. Using 365 Data Centers’ Philadelphia facility for colocation enables Utopia to focus on its core business of delivering Microsoft solutions and growing its customer base. Utopia chose the facility because of its choice of carriers, convenient location, scalability, compliance and security.
365 Data Centers offers the scalability that Utopia needs to rapidly meet increasing customer demand for cloud and virtual servers. Utopia provides hosted SaaS applications for firms working in industries such as legal, accounting and medical records which makes 365 Data Centers’ HIPPA and SSAE 16 compliance critical to its customers. The facility provides direct access to eight cable and Internet service providers, enabling fast access to the Internet and a superior end-user experience for Utopia’s customers. Utopia’s customer base is nationwide with a concentration in the eastern U.S., making 365’s Philadelphia location at 3701 Market Street very convenient for the company and its clients.
“Utopia started with a very small, local colocation provider but once we hit our first growth spurt, they could not deliver the flexibility required for rapid expansion. With hundreds of users and a forecast for thousands, we needed to add scalability and diverse carrier access to our list of requirements,” said Eric White, President and CEO at Utopia Systems. “365 worked with us to provide flexible terms and design tweaks to best-fit our needs without charging an artifi cial premium. The value provided by 365’s flexibility and ‘white glove’ approach to customer service makes them the perfect partner for us.”
“At 365, we know that our customers’ requirements are constantly evolving. When Utopia’s business began to accelerate its growth, 365 helped them to scale,” said Keao Caindec, CMO, 365 Data Centers. “Utopia has grown rapidly from a small deployment of a couple of cabinets to having a whole private enclosure at our facility. We are passionate about helping our customers to succeed and grow.”
