Houston, Texas (January 11, 2010) Alpheus Data Services, a network and data center services provider in Texas, today announced that it has successfully completed a SAS 70 audit on its Data Centers in Houston and Austin.  The SAS 70 Type II certification confirms that Alpheus delivers fully secure, reliable, high quality operating standards in its data center operations.

“The SAS 70 certification combined with our 99.999% network reliability affirms our commitment to provide the highest standards of operational excellence to our data center customers,” said Gary Bartkus, Alpheus VP of Enterprise Sales and Marketing.   “Our network is used by most of the top telecom carriers in the United States because it is engineered and maintained to provide maximum uptime performance.  With SAS 70, our data center customers now have the added assurance that our collocation facilities are equally robust.”
