IO Powers PROACTIS Cloud Solutions

IO Data Center Infrastructure Helps PROACTIS Drive Bottom-line Value and Future Growth

Phoenix – December 10, 2015IO, a leading global provider of data center services, today announced PROACTIS utilizes IO colocation to deliver its cloud-based Spend Control and eProcurement solutions to its North American customer base. IO colocation enables PROACTIS to have secure, highly available data center infrastructure to help customers reduce costs, improve efficiencies and minimize risk.

CyberTrails, a leading provider of managed information technology services, provides PROACTIS with security, monitoring, patch management and professional services at the IO Phoenix data center. The PROACTIS Spend Control and eProcurement platform and Intesource (a PROACTIS company) Managed Services for Sourcing are used by blue-chip organizations across industry sectors and powered by IO.

“Central to our company growth plan is leveraging technology best practices to not only provide a platform for innovative solutions but also deliver process efficiencies and cost savings,” said Gabriel Gabaldon, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of PROACTIS and Intesource. “IO and CyberTrails are helping us meet the rigorous security and compliance demands of our enterprise customers with top-notch data center infrastructure that provides the foundation for our cloud applications.”

IO provides PROACTIS with high-performance, state-of-the-art data center solutions, without them having to invest resources in building and maintaining their own physical infrastructure. Included among the reasons PROACTIS chose IO Phoenix were that the data center provides low latency to network hubs, concurrent maintainability, and 24x7x365 security and compliance. IO Phoenix is SSAE16 SOC1 Type 2 compliant and has Tier III certification for design documents from the Uptime Institute. It is geographically placed for optimal uptime in a region with limited risk from natural disasters.

“PROACTIS is at the vanguard of leveraging the cloud to help customers harness technology to transform their businesses,” said Pat Lewis, Vice President of Technology Sales, CyberTrails. “IO data center solutions support their growing business by enabling PROACTIS to scale their data center footprint in an agile, reliable and secure environment.”

“Moving to IO reflects how PROACTIS and Intesource are focused on enhancing their North America market presence and the success of their clients,” said IO’s Rick Crutchley, Managing Director, North America. “IO provides the critical infrastructure and uptime needed to help their customers ensure they achieve maximum return from technology investments.”
