June 19, 2013
DES MOINES, Iowa (June 19, 2013)—Vital Support Systems™ and DISTek® Integration, Inc. announced today they have signed a multi-year contract. Vital will provide Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and ReliaCloud™ services (a virtualized, outsourced production server environment) for DISTek.
“Our number one objective was to get out of the network administration role,” says Bob Theisen, Information Technology manager at DISTek. “In choosing Vital Support Systems, we have successfully transferred our IT processes to a strong, local partner that provides system redundancy and failover. We feel confident our IT is in an environment that’s highly secured and element-protected. Plus, we get more time to focus on our core business.”
DISTek is an embedded software services provider specializing in off-highway vehicle systems. The company specializes in turning proof-of-concept software into production-ready firmware for the most demanding off-highway systems.
“We found that with ReliaCloud, we could move to a more comprehensive, enterprise-class solution at a lower cost,” Theisen said. “Easy access to the Vital data center was probably the key driver of all the benefits. But, I can’t speak enough about the completeness of the service offering, from access to hosting, to administration, to managed services, support services and implementation, the Vital project management team has met or exceeded all my expectations.”
In addition to ReliaCloud, Vital offers a comprehensive suite of products and services, including: planning, engineering, procurement, and installation. The company also provides management of IT infrastructure solutions from world-class hardware and software vendors such as Cisco, EMC, Hewlett Packard, VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix. Vital provides a wide range of IT solutions, including colocation, disaster recovery, and data security services to businesses throughout the Midwest.
“We are thrilled to partner with DISTek,” says Jeff Sparling, CEO, Vital Support Systems. “We look forward to delivering the highest level of service and the technology infrastructure that DISTek is counting on.”
