CentriLogic Launches Advanced Technology Services Business Unit

New Division Delivers Virtualization, Data Center Consolidation, and Managed IT Solutions to Customers Worldwide

ROCHESTER, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 09/25/14 -- CentriLogic, a global provider of managed hosting, cloud computing, co-location and advanced IT outsourcing solutions, today announces its new Advanced Technology Services business unit. The service offerings help organizations streamline IT infrastructure and application management through a comprehensive managed services program with CentriLogic.

The new business unit was developed to fulfill the infrastructure and application management challenges experienced by several of its existing customers. CentriLogic currently offers professional services and on-demand support to all hosting customers, but the Advanced Technology Services unit extends its managed services capabilities by helping customers plan, transition, and implement a fully managed IT model. New services include:

  • Data Center Consolidation: Physical and virtual migration of enterprise level data center components to new locations.
  • Managed Applications: Ongoing management of enterprise applications, including PeopleSoft, SalesForce.com, and Email.
  • Managed IT: 24/7/365 management and monitoring of critical IT infrastructure and systems, including Managed UNIX, Databases, VMware & Hyper-V, Active Directory, and Helpdesk.
  • Managed Data: On and off-premise management of Databases, Backups, and Storage.
  • Managed Network: Network infrastructure management including managed routers, switches, firewalls, VPNs, Load Balancers, and Security Services.

These services remove the day-to-day support tasks and management activities for both on and off-premise infrastructure and applications from a customer's internal IT team, allowing them to focus on more strategic projects and initiatives. The business unit will be supported by a team of CentriLogic employees worldwide with plans to increase headcount based on customer demand. CentriLogic's Director of Advanced Technology Services John Abbett will run the business unit, reporting directly to President and CEO Robert Offley.

"With Advanced Technology Services, CentriLogic can help alleviate the burden of ongoing infrastructure and application management experienced by many of our customers. Unlike many of our competitors, this business unit enables us to act as an extension of our customer's IT departments, providing them the ability to refocus their efforts on achieving operational efficiencies, cost-benefits, and strategic developments within their organizations," says John Abbett, Director of Advanced Technology Services. "The team we have assembled at CentriLogic holds the highest levels of industry-leading certifications, and collectively has over 100 years of IT infrastructure and application management experience."

CentriLogic has been testing the new Advanced Technology Services portfolio since early 2014 with existing managed hosting, cloud and co-location customers including Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Kodak Alaris, and Delaware North. After preliminary discussions with other high-profile accounts requesting more comprehensive management solutions, the company predicts that roughly 50% of its existing customer base will engage CentriLogic's Advanced Technology Services within the next 12 months.

"CentriLogic works diligently to architect solutions and strategies that are tailored to our organization's specific needs and requirements," says Brian Baggett, Senior Director, Business Technologies at Delaware North Companies. "Their efforts to provide simple and effective solutions have allowed me to focus on supporting core business activities."

Customers who engage the Advanced Technology Services can choose to have their equipment and applications managed at their own facility or at one of CentriLogic's global facilities, or throughout any combination of the above. CentriLogic is now offering its Advanced Technology Services to customers throughout North America, and will expand into the UK over the next three months.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
