Highly available infrastructure, location, and security are key criteria in selection process
Dallas, TX (August 13, 2013) – Global colocation solutions provider CyrusOne (:CONE, news) announced today it will provide disaster recovery colocation services for Turner Industries, one of the leading heavy industrial contractors serving the U.S. petrochemical industry. Based in Baton Rouge, La., Turner Industries was recently selected by ENR Texas and Louisiana magazine as its 2013 Contractor of the Year.
“Turner Industries is responsible for managing and staffing industrial projects at petrochemical and refining complexes across the country,” explained Scott Gautreau, manager of technology for Turner Industries. “In the event of a disaster, it’s imperative that we maintain access to our business-critical systems, which include enterprise resource planning and payroll. CyrusOne’s data center presence in Dallas provides a geographically diverse location to house our backup and disaster recovery systems. In addition, the high availability and redundancy built into their infrastructure and a close attention to detail and customer service were exactly what we were looking for in a data center partner.”
