ProviDyn Doubles Data Center Capacity to Meet High Demand for Private Cloud Services

Increased Adoption of Private Cloud by Clients Prompts ProviDyn to Expand its
Data Center Capacity Twofold

Atlanta, GA — April 14, 2012 — ProviDyn, a provider of IT support, strategy and managed services, announces it has doubled its data center footprint with additional rack space to meet the growing demand for private cloud services. This expansion mirrors the increase in the adoption of cloud services by small and medium-sized (SMB) businesses looking to benefit from IT services typically out of budget for smaller companies — at a lower cost and with greater efficiency.

ProviDyn’s private cloud is hosted in a tier 4 SSAE 16 Type II (formerly SAS 70) audited data center which features: fully redundant power through a dedicated grid, 36 generators and 16 independent UPS systems; fully monitored cooling systems; internal environmental protections against fire and water damage; 24×7 monitoring and support; advanced biometric physical access controls; a hardened facility rated against external environmental threats. As with its managed technology and strategy services, ProviDyn customizes its private cloud solution for each client based on factors such as industry, growth rate and the need for scalability. Unlike many service providers, ProviDyn’s cloud is proprietary and dedicated, allowing its clients more control over data, security and compliance.

“The expansion of our data center footprint is indicative of how SMBs are beginning to warm up to private cloud services as a smart way to manage technology,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of ProviDyn. “The cloud makes sense for most businesses that truly don’t need to operate and manage their own IT systems. The flexibility, option to scale as you go, pay only for what you need and many other benefits make the private cloud a great option for most SMBs.”

ProviDyn’s Private Cloud Benefits:

  • Remote Access – Access to files, applications and data from anywhere, anytime.
  • Hosting of Critical Business Applications – All business applications are automatically updated and running at peak performance.
  • Security – Encryption and expert firewall management provides a deep layer of security for critical information and systems.
  • Cost Savings – No more large investments in equipment, software or personnel.
  • Scalability – Priced to fit current needs with the flexibility to quickly and easily expand or contract as the business changes, and without downtime or capital expenditure.
  • Backup and Restoration – Automatic replication and back up of all data, applications and systems.

ProviDyn Alleviates IT Burden for Renmatix, Allowing the Company to Focus on its Mission of Reducing the World’s Dependence on Fossil Fuels

Leading Cellulosic Sugar Provider Selects ProviDyn for Private Cloud Services and IT Strategy

Atlanta – April 27, 2012 – ProviDyn, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today it is providing Renmatix, a leading cellulosic sugar producer for global biochemical and biofuels markets, with private cloud services and IT strategy.

Experiencing rapid growth, Renmatix was consistently adding office space and employees across multiple locations. Its IT equipment was aging and the company recognized that enlisting an additional resource to help manage and scale its IT infrastructure was necessary for success. Renmatix selected ProviDyn to assess its current technology situation and provide recommendations for building out an infrastructure that would ensure efficiency as the company continued to grow.

To set Renmatix on the proper path, ProviDyn began by providing managed services to stabilize and support the existing IT environment. With its assessment and readiness methodology, ProviDyn was then able to uncover opportunities for Renmatix to increase efficiency and implement new technology. Rather than make an “out of the box” recommendation, ProviDyn interviewed key stakeholders, evaluated existing hardware and equipment and assessed the status of software licensing, along with legal and technological compliance. As a result, ProviDyn was able to provide Renmatix with a solid recommendation of migrating to a private cloud based on a lower upfront investment and the benefits of better equipment, updated licenses, scalability, remote access and disaster recovery.

“ProviDyn came in at the perfect time,” said Duncan Cross, Director of Marketing for Renmatix. “We tried other approaches, such as hiring an internal IT resource, but knew that a managed environment would run more efficiently, reduce costs and add an element of strategy to our existing infrastructure. Because ProviDyn took the time to understand our business inside and out, we felt confident in going with the recommendation to migrate to a private cloud versus building a data center in-house.”

“We are excited to work with Renmatix and provide the forethought and expertise needed to get the most out of their investment in technology,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of ProviDyn. “By taking the IT burden off of Renmatix, we can help them work toward and meet business goals without worrying about how technology will impact growth.”
