WICHITA, KS; ISG Technology, a majority owned Twin Valley Telephone, Inc. company, announced today a new data center being constructed in Wichita, KS. The new data center, the third in ISG’s network, is scheduled to be online by the fall.
In addition to collocation and disaster recovery, the new data center will house ISG’s “Cloud Services” infrastructure. With Cloud Services, a business can run specific applications or their entire business system on ISG’s virtual server infrastructure.
“As a business located in the Midwest, the importance of having an off-site solution for your critical business data is imperative,” states John Gunn, President of ISG Technology. “Whether it’s a tornado, fire, power outage or even a server failure, businesses can’t afford to be down. This is one of the biggest shifts in the IT industry as businesses look to move away from managing and upgrading their own IT equipment so they can focus on running their business. “
ISG’s full suite of Cloud Services includes infrastructure as a service to host and manage a businesses’ complete IT environment, web and email hosting, data backup services, disaster recovery, collocation services and more.
“Speaking as an operator of a communications company who has focused intensely on diversification of our business, ISG presents a premier partnership opportunity for companies like Twin Valley Telephone, said Ben Foster, President and COO of Twin Valley Telephone, Inc and CEO of ISG Technology. “Building a Cloud Services offering is capital intensive. However, through wholesale and future White Label offerings, ISG will provide other companies a path to the market with legitimate profit potential. With the right partner, other companies can carve a niche, differentiate themselves from the competition through their brand, and make a solid return on investment.”
