June 18, 2013
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN, (June 18, 2013) - VISI Inc. announced today they have signed a contract with MedNet Solutions, Inc. to provide ReliaCloud™ services and new colocation space.
MedNet, a healthcare technology company based in Minnetonka, Minn., supports pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotechnology companies worldwide. MedNet provides web-based electronic data capture, clinical study management solutions, and technology services.
“We chose VISI’s ReliaCloud service to create virtual server clusters for test and quality assurance environments and as a possibility for a disaster recovery solution,” says Ryan Anderson, vice president of Technology Services at MedNet. “Seeing the ReliaCloud technology in action was very impressive. Based on the demonstration, our existing relationship with VISI, and their local presence, choosing to add ReliaCloud virtualization to our IT infrastructure was a logical decision.”
Since 2006, MedNet has held colocation space in VISI’s data center in St. Paul, Minn. In addition to choosing to add the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) ReliaCloud solution to their existing collocation services, MedNet has also decided to move their servers from St. Paul to VISI’s Tier III data center in Eden Prairie, Minn.
“It says a lot about the partnership and the trust existing customers have in your company when they not only stay, but add on new products,” says Terry Swanson, CEO of VISI. “As an existing customer, we appreciate MedNet’s trust in VISI. As they expand their IT infrastructure and move into our cloud, we are committed to working closely with them on a smooth transition. Throughout the process and tenure of our partnership, we are committed to providing them the technical savvy and reliable services they’ve come to expect from us.”
“Adding ReliaCloud virtualization allows us to quickly create and remove test environments and test new hardware infrastructure configurations without the expense of having additional dedicated physical hardware”, adds Anderson. “It will allow us to be more flexible and improve our quality assurance process.”
