Energizer Selects Connectria to Provide Managed Hosting Services for its Microsoft Hyper-V Environment
ST. LOUIS, MO (April 14, 2010) Connectria is pleased to announce its selection by Energizer to provide Microsoft Hyper-V Managed Hosting Services. Following a rigorous selection process Energizer management awarded Connectria a contract to support its non-critical systems, including development and test environments. Energizer is planning to consolidate both physical and virtual systems that are presently distributed across North America into Connectria's enterprise class data center in St. Louis, Missouri. Connectria's customized, cost effective solution will provide Energizer with a utility hosting model that its management was seeking.
Connectria will be responsible for the 24/7 operational support of the host hardware and guest OS environments, including troubleshooting, problem identification and resolution of issues. In addition, Connectria will configure and build the Hyper-V environments. Connectria will serve as an extension of Energizer's IT organization working together with their staff to deliver the applications hosted on these systems.
Connectria's ability to design a cost-effective solution that provides Energizer the flexibility to add and remove Hyper-V servers on demand was a key contributor toward Energizer's decision.
Connectria and Energizer look forward to a continuing a relationship which began several years ago with Playtex Products, acquired by Energizer in 2007.
