Englewood, Colorado, March 26, 2012 — Responding to increasing enterprise demand for managed and cloud infrastructure services, Latisys, a leading national provider of IT outsourcing solutions – from colocation to cloud – today announced data center expansions and general availability of the Latisys Cloud.

The company also announced availability of the Latisys Cloud, enabling enterprises to rapidly provision on-demand, pay-as-you-go IT infrastructure services through a self-service portal.
