January 15, 2009
'Dream Team' Agreement Provides Full Spectrum Service to Broad Range of Clients
Duffield, VA & Johnson City, TN - The OnePartner Advanced Technology & Applications Center
(ATAC) today announced a partnership agreement with BCTI
, combining ATAC's exclusive commercial Tier III
data center with the managed network and information technology services of BCTI.
The new agreement -- the first between OnePartner and a managed services company -- provides ATAC's colocation clients with additional application and network services in a seamless fashion. Additionally, as OnePartner's first authorized reseller, BCTI receives a dedicated cabinet which may be subdivided for clients seeking less than a full cabinet space. These clients can also use BCTI as a resource for assistance with operation system support, email services, business application needs, database support and even custom programming.
The nation's first and only commercial data center to receive a certification
from The Uptime Institute
for a Tier III (or higher) design, ATAC provides ideal power, temperature, humidity and connectivity for computing environments through multiple active power and cooling distribution paths and fully redundant components.
A Cisco Certified Partner and Microsoft Gold Certified Partner serving northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia, BCTI provides comprehensive IT solutions, including networking, operating system installation, application management, (Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server) and programming.
"Our partnership with BCTI gives us the opportunity to work with a service-driven provider to leverage ATAC's resiliency and high availability resources for single server requirements" said Tom Deaderick, Director, OnePartner. "We want ATAC clients to have the best on every front, and partnerships like ours with BCTI give our customers better service and flexibility. They also enable us to stay focused on managing the data center."
OnePartner's partnership strategy gives managed services companies throughout the U.S. the opportunity to combine IT and networking support with the premier capabilities of ATAC's data center to both large and smaller clients.
"With ATAC, we have a partner in the region with the same performance and service focus we have at BCTI. It comes through in their commitment to clients and their innovative approach to partnerships," said Chase Boles, BCTI President. "We toured numerous data centers, and found the ATAC to be unique in almost every way. With ATAC we've partnered with the best designed commercial data center in the country in accordance with the Uptime Institute's standards. We appreciate OnePartner's focus on redundancy and how they didn't sacrifice resilient design to cram in more server room space. This means the customers we refer to them are not getting a giant warehouse with underpowered infrastructure; with ATAC, our clients are getting the best."
