EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (Oct. 24, 2012)—Curenci, an online payment platform processor based in Bloomington, Minn., announced today it has selected ReliaCloud™ from VISI, a TDS Hosted & Managed Services (TDS HMS) company. With a need to respond rapidly to demands for services, Curenci was looking for a cloud computing provider that guarantees reliability, security, and provides an overall robust infrastructure. They chose VISI, also of Minnesota, and entered into a three-year agreement.
“As an online payment processor, we need to rapidly scale as our customers’ needs change,” says Bill Whalen, director of sales for Curenci. “It is critical that we can do it quickly without a lot of capital investment. VISI’s ReliaCloud allows us to provide uptime guarantees to our customers and supports our mission-critical applications.”
VISI is Minnesota’s leading managed services, cloud computing, and data center services provider. The company recently began offering ReliaCloud, a reliable, enterprise-class IT Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform. It’s designed for resource intense applications and databases that require a secure and compliant operational network.
“We’re pleased to welcome Curenci to our ReliaCloud platform," said Terry Swanson, CEO of VISI. “Our cloud service is attractive to Curenci, and growing companies throughout the region, for many reasons including the fact that they don’t need to invest in assets like infrastructure or hardware."
Racks of newly installed Cisco, EMC and VMware equipment are housed in VISI’s Tier III data center in Eden Prairie, Minn. They are ready for use in public, private, and hybrid cloud configurations. The Minnesota data center is also connected to TDS HMS data centers in Iowa and Wisconsin. This provides a unique cloud option for Midwest businesses in need of disaster recovery capabilities with an interconnected cloud.
According to Swanson, the enterprise cloud product offers support to companies who want to be in the cloud but still have their data close by. He says, “It means IT managers can move their data close to home and sleep better at night knowing it’s also in a safe and secure enterprise-class environment.”
Business owners and IT professionals can learn about the “Second Wave of Cloud Computing” at VISI’s upcoming webinar. The free educational event will be held on Nov. 27 at 11 a.m.
