Datalink Deploys Virtual Data Center Infrastructure At Velocitor Solutions

Stocks in this article: DTLK

Datalink (NASDAQ: DTLK), a leading provider of data center infrastructure and services, today announced the completion of a $1.1M unified virtual data center (VDC) infrastructure deployment for Velocitor Solutions, a Charlotte, N.C.-based mobile/wireless software as a service (SaaS) vendor serving transportation/logistics, direct-store-delivery, field service and field sales customers. The new data center environment will enable Velocitor to quickly add SaaS capacity for company services ranging from mobile accounting to GPS vehicle tracking, help ensure 24x7 application availability, and support Velocitor’s internal staff.

"We had exploding demand for our SaaS offerings that caused our data center environment to grow by 200% in just one year. We had to constantly deploy new server and storage hardware at two locations to support new customers," said Rich Pacella, President, Velocitor Solutions. "We turned to Datalink for guidance on how to streamline our infrastructure to save time and money, position us for continued growth, and optimize the customer experience."

Datalink served as strategic advisor on the project; designed and deployed compute, network and storage components into a single, unified FlexPod™ architecture featuring technologies from NetApp, Cisco, and VMware; and deployed site-to-site failover and disaster recovery capabilities. FlexPod is a pre-tested, optimized and pre-validated data center solution supported by Datalink as part of the company’s VDC migration strategy for large and midmarket enterprises.

Datalink is also providing its OneCall SM Unified Support services to supplement original equipment manufacturer (OEM) support programs and provide streamlined solution-level assessment and resolution. Leveraging the support services teams, best practices, and data center expertise of OneCall, Datalink will assume ownership of each reported incident, conduct initial triages, and resolve issues. Should incidents be escalated to OEMs, Datalink will shepherd all incidents until a resolution is achieved.

“This project is a prime example of how Datalink is using its VDC expertise to help customers take advantage of newer cloud-based data center technologies that can help move their business forward,” said Paul Lidsky, Datalink President and CEO. “By focusing on converged data center architectures that incorporate virtualization, private cloud computing and advanced networking, we are enabling customers, like Velocitor, to gain agility, efficiency, and performance that are critical to business success.”
