Britton Gallagher Selects VAZATA for Disaster Recovery Solution

Plano, Texas, May 21, 2013 – VAZATA, a full service cloud infrastructure, managed services and colocation provider, announced today the addition of Britton Gallagher to its customer portfolio. Britton Gallagher is a leading insurance advisory firm that specializes in various areas of commercial insurance, personal insurance and health benefits.

Al Vasek, CIO of Britton Gallagher, said, “as a key part of our business continuity planning, we elected to couple the power of VAZATA’s highly reliable infrastructure with VMware’s Site Recovery Manager to protect our mission critical applications in the event of a disaster or disruption. We’re based in Ohio and chose VAZATA for geographic diversification and to access their Tier III, SSAE 16 Type 2, FISMA and HIPAA compliant facilities. VAZATA has consistently delivered a level of personal attention during the planning and implementation of our solution, and we now have the ability to fully restore operations in literally minutes. This of course in turn ensures that we are able to continue delivering reliable service to our customers without disruption.”

Chuck Hixson, SVP of Sales for VAZATA, said, “we really do view every customer relationship as something far more than just a transaction. We’re honored to be selected as a key part of the disaster recovery plan of a leading insurance advisory firm – this is a company that specializes in risk mitigation. I’m also pleased to hear the feedback that we’ve maintained a high-touch level of service throughout the solution implementation process. It’s our intent to build a lasting relationship with Britton Gallagher so we can continue to support them as their needs evolve and as their business continues to grow.”
