AGI Shorewood Selects Connectria Hosting for Data Center Outsourcing Services

ST. LOUIS, MO (June 22, 2012) - Connectria Hosting announced today that it has been awarded a contract with AGI Shorewood for data center outsourcing services. After an acquisition by Atlas Holdings, AGI Shorewood was able to transition its entire multi-platform environment over to Connectria under an extremely aggressive timeline and was able to avoid potential penalties. The environment includes Sun Solaris, Windows, Linux and VMware, all connected by a back-end SAN. In order for the transition to be fully completed Connectria also used Citrix, Oracle e-business suite and MS SQL.

AGI Shorewood selected Connectria as its hosting partner for a number of reasons, including:

  • The flexibility to use a mix of its assets along with Connectria's, such as licensing and hardware, which is very unique to the hosting industry
  • Connectria's ability to support a wide variety of multi-platform environments which made this project possible

AGI Shorewood is now running their environment in a standalone manner with a fixed fee contract that allows them to budget into the future with certainty. The availability of Connectria's engineering expertise and management tools provides peace of mind and ensures potential issues are addressed and resolved quickly.
