VAZATA, a full service cloud infrastructure, managed services and colocation provider, announced today that FC Dallas has chosen VAZATA for a hybrid cloud solution that includes a custom-built private cloud deployment fully integrated with VAZATA’s multi-tenant IaaS platform for disaster recovery capability.
FC Dallas, a professional American soccer club competing in Major League Soccer, has been a VAZATA customer for several years. A recent cost evaluation of a necessary hardware refresh alongside the organization’s requirement for business continuity supporting critical applications including CRM, ticketing, finance and communications, built a case for a hybrid cloud solution. VAZATA deployed a private cloud solution for FC Dallas, which was augmented with disaster recovery services provided through VAZATA’s vStucture™ platform that includes network services, managed services and three Tier-III data centers that have each completed SSAE-16 Type II audits.
“VAZATA designed an optimal solution for FC Dallas, and we are delighted to partner with them,” FC Dallas Chairman Clark Hunt said. “Our IT needs have evolved considerably over the last several years, and we trust VAZATA to provide our team with the flexibility and security required by an increasingly mobile workforce.”
Lance Black, CEO of VAZATA, added, “this is an excellent example of our ‘Colo to the Cloud’ mission. We were able to flex with the customer’s unique needs and build something that gives the customer what they need, when they need it, and with all of the benefits of virtualization. People get confused about the benefits or drawbacks of a public cloud or private cloud. Our stance is that the right solution is entirely defined by the specific needs of the business and the right provider can build virtually anything. In this case, we architected a hybrid solution because that’s what best served our customer. Cost considerations and, more importantly, business stability were top priorities and we responded to both.”
