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.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
