John Drake & Associates (JDA), a systems integrator and provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions, has chosen Latisys’ data center in Denver as its IT infrastructure platform to underpin new Disaster Recovery (DR) services.
Under terms of the IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS) agreement, JDA will leverage Latisys’ Denver data center to enable new Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities in support of a portfolio of customized Managed IT services currently being delivered via Latisys’ Chicago data center. Latisys Denver would serve as an ideal DR destination for large and mid-size enterprises.
JDA has been building its business in Chicago, leveraging Latisys‘ Cloud-Enabled Systems Infrastructure (CESI) to deliver hybrid hosting for over four years.
