One part of my job I really enjoy is talking to customers. I probably sit in on 20+ calls with customers and potential customers a week. Over the past 6months two common themes have emerged. The challenge of achieving compliance (both commercial and federal) and how to best take advantage of cloud computing. This is why the news we are sharing today is so exciting.
Carpathia Hosting is acquiring ServerVault, both companies are industry veterans and have a long history of delivering excellent customer and financial results. Each are headquartered in northern Virginia, home to some of the highest demand for hosting services on the planet. Also happens to be the home of the worlds largest IT department, the federal government spending over 77 billion a year.
ServerVault has had a laser like focus on delivering highly secure, compliant hosting to commercial and federal customers. This strategy doesn’t happen overnight. It has taken close to a decade to build up the right mix of people, process and technology required to truly deliver compliant hosting.
Carpathia by contrast has focused on developing an industry leading portfolio of services that allow us to engage with customers no matter where they are on the IT adoption curve from foundational services like colocation to managed cloud computing.
Bringing these two companies together allows us to both take Carpathia’s portfolio into a highly secure/compliant facility “The Vault” and also take the process rigor from ServerVault and deliver compliant hosting in Carpathia’s footprint of 9 datacenters across North America.
If you can’t tell by the tone of this post, this is a very exciting time for us. Expect to hear a lot more of our plans over the coming weeks.
