Edge colocation company EdgeMicro, founded in 2017 by an “elite” team with telecommunications and data center expertise, has selected Murphy Company as its nationwide partner for a range of data center support services within its Micro Data Center (MDC) implementations across the U.S.
Murphy Company is a 100+ year old, 4th-generation, family-owned mechanical contractor. Murphy’s Data Center Services will provide 24/7/365 NOC services for EdgeMicro. Next to that, Murphy will also support EdgeMicro customers with remote hands, preventative and predictive maintenance, incident response, and other data center support services.
“Murphy has been at the forefront of supporting mission critical facilities for decades, and its data center services team has unmatched experience,” said Loren Zweig, Vice President of Operations at EdgeMicro. ” They are an ideal partner for supporting our MDCs and our customers’ needs. We chose Murphy for a number of reasons, including their outstanding track record in the data center and mission critical systems industry. That experience includes working with a long list of companies in regulated industries that must adhere to stringent compliance requirements. But the most important reason is that the Murphy team gets it. They understand how to operate facilities simply and effectively, they have a ‘get ‘er done’ attitude, and they will be a seamless extension of the EdgeMicro team.”
>1,000 Data Centers
Murphy Company currently operates in over 40 states supporting over 1,000 data centers through its network of mission critical contractors. Murphy will immediately begin supporting the data centers that EdgeMicro has deployed in its first three markets: Austin, Raleigh and Tampa. Murphy will also support the 30 additional sites that EdgeMicro will launch over the next 36 months.
“One of the things that stood out at the beginning of our conversations with EdgeMicro is their focus on the needs of their customers,” said Eric Gottschlich, Director of Data Center Services at Murphy. “The EdgeMicro team’s mindset aligns with our own philosophy, which is about supporting the customer’s business objectives not simply their physical assets. Murphy supports the data centers and mission critical facilities of many of the largest companies in North America, and our experience will make our team an asset to each of the companies that use EdgeMicro MDCs.”
“This partnership with Murphy is a major milestone for our company, and I’m really excited to have its outstanding team working with us,” said Mike Hagan, CEO of EdgeMicro. “One of the things that makes Murphy such an important partner is their geographic reach. As EdgeMicro scales up from where we are now to hundreds of MDCs in the U.S., Murphy’s geographic reach will ensure that we can provide the same high standard of service, consistency and quality no matter where our customers want to be – not to mention the potential to develop a framework to, one day, support thousands of MDCs internationally.”
