Printronix Selects Latisys to Support Business Expansion and Corporate Relocation
Latisys Flexibility and Responsiveness Cited As Key Factors in Decision to Outsource IT Infrastructure
Englewood, CO, June 13, 2012 — Latisys, Inc., a leading national provider of outsourced IT solutions delivered on a high density, high security platform – from colocation to cloud – today announced an IT infrastructure services agreement with Printronix, Inc., the worldwide leader in business critical industrial printing solutions.
In response to business growth and in conjunction with a corporate relocation initiative in Southern California, Printronix chose to outsource its IT infrastructure to Latisys’ newest, state of the art, west coast data center.
Under terms of the multiyear IT infrastructure services agreement, Printronix will establish a footprint on Latisys’ Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform, securing high-density space, power, and bandwidth from Latisys’ SOC 2 and SOC 3 audited data center in Irvine, Calif.
“Printronix is the worldwide leader of business critical industrial printing solutions. We deliver highly reliable, cost effective, innovative products and services to meet our customer’s most mission critical printing needs said Randy Eisenbach, Chief Executive Officer, Printronix. “To support our strategy, we require responsive and trusted business and technology partners who deliver industry-leading services. Latisys clearly demonstrated the business value of outsourced IT infrastructure and was highly responsive in developing a flexible solution mapped directly to our current and future requirements.”
“Printronix exemplifies rapidly growing enterprises that recognize the business value in outsourcing IT infrastructure services to a trusted provider,” said Pete Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer, Latisys. “By collaborating closely with Printronix, we have developed a flexible and scalable solution that drives even greater cost and operating efficiencies for Printronix while powering best-in-class performance for their customers.”
Latisys’ data center platform is now operated under SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3 audited controls. This replaces the SAS 70 guidebook and reaffirms Latisys’ commitment to meet the highest standards for availability and security, while making sure all of the appropriate controls and safeguards are firmly in place.
Earlier this year, Latisys announced that it is adding 72,000 square feet of highly secure, high density, carrier grade IT infrastructure space along with significant power upgrades. Latisys’ total data center platform now exceeds 343,000 square feet across seven data centers in four major markets.
