Fortrust, a colocation provider headquartered in Denver, with data center locations in Phoenix, Arizona and Edison, New Jersey, has won a contract with Goodway Group – a third-generation, family-owned company that has taken 30 years of local retail-marketing experience and applied it to the digital-media space.
Goodway Group’s signature service, the Custom Audience Platform, is an on-demand digital-media infrastructure engineered to help customers reach their target market more effectively online. To support their “popular” platform, Goodway Group’s mission critical servers required 100 percent uptime. With their dedicated server solution falling short, the company was experiencing prolonged outages for up to 4 hours, resulting in lost revenue and business.
Consolidating their colocation services at Fortrust has significantly increased processing capabilities, according to Goodway Group, at less than half the cost of their previous provider.
“Uptime was the biggest deciding factor for our data center partner selection,” said Richard Henretta, Senior Systems Administrator, Goodway Group. “FORTRUST has provided its customers uninterrupted uptime since 2001 and has the proven capabilities to maintain a 100 percent SLA. They are unquestionably the best data center in the region, and the clear choice for Goodway Group.”
Fortrust Denver is one of the largest colocation data centers in the region with over 300,000 square feet and 34 megawatts of data center capacity.
“Fortrust’s strategically selected data center location and risk mitigation features make it an ideal disaster recovery site,” said Josh Moody, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, FORTRUST. “We look forward to continuing to provide 100 percent uptime and the highest quality data center services to Goodway Group.”
