Outcome Engenuity Selects VAZATA for Disaster Recovery Solution

Plano, Texas, October 16, 2012 – VAZATA, a full service cloud infrastructure, managed services and colocation provider, today announced that Outcome Engenuity, a world-class risk management firm committed to improving outcomes in several high consequence industries, has selected VAZATA as a strategic disaster recovery partner. VAZATA’s infrastructure footprint features three FISMA compliant, Tier III data centers and a proprietary IaaS platform, the vStructure™, for virtualization capabilities. Outcome Engenuity utilizes VAZATA’s highly secure, stable and scalable infrastructure as an alternative to building redundancy into its own headquarters server room. VAZATA’s solution is fully equipped with redundant telecom networks, redundant power providers, data replication across facilities and the vStructure™, 24/7/365 on-site technical support, and on-site security and biometrics. “As a company that helps organizations design reliable socio-technical systems, we take the responsibility for the reliability of our own IT operations very seriously. By partnering with VAZATA, we’re able to improve our own systems stability which in turn benefits our customers,” said David Marx, CEO of Outcome Engenuity.“ VAZATA’s solution is both more cost effective and more comprehensive than what we’d be able to implement ourselves. The backup power generation capabilities, generous bandwidth, and world-class infrastructure give us confidence that our data is always accessible and safe with VAZATA.” Lance Black, CEO of VAZATA, said, “Outcome Engenuity is in an interesting business – systems reliability and business continuity are paramount as they support industries like aviation, healthcare and even nuclear power. We have a strong business practice serving US Federal Government agencies and other sectors where ‘mission critical’ takes on a new level of meaning and we’ve designed our solutions to meet these type of unique needs. We’re honored to be selected as Outcome Engenuity’s strategic partner for disaster recovery – we view this as an opportunity to support the important work that they do.” -end-
