Sodexo, the Quality of Life Services provider, has chosen a Tier III data center partner to ensure the availability of Sodexo’s business critical applications and meet the business imperative that the user community have 24/7 access to their data.
The Tier III data center is expected to ensure that Sodexo’s systems have robust physical security and a facility that provides redundant power and cooling for IT equipment. Establishing a Tier III facility provides the foundation to keep critical systems always operational and available globally 24/7.
“We are able to provide our users with a greater level of uptime thanks to the level of redundancy built into the facility, and the facility is staffed around the clock with data center engineers monitoring the health of the facility,” says Vice President of IT Operations and Infrastructure Tim Porzio.
Sodexo’s data center partner has a global presence allowing Sodexo to expand or for global consolidation of data center assets. Now, Sodexo has two global data centers fully interconnected to provide common services to users worldwide. The data center partner was chosen because of its rich set of connectivity options allowing Sodexo to provide connectivity to meet the ever growing demand for anytime access to applications at an affordable price. The data center partner also has a rich set of cloud providers in its ecosystem. This allows Sodexo to subscribe to cloud offerings by interconnecting to them within the data center providing fast, secure, access to the ever-growing suite of cloud options available.
