Seeking infrastructure that is robust, resilient, secure, available and responsive, Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services, chose a Tier III data center partner to ensure the availability of Sodexo’s business critical applications and meet the business imperative that the user community have 24/7 access to their data.
The Tier III data center ensures that Sodexo’s systems have robust physical security and a facility that provides redundant power and cooling for IT equipment. Establishing a Tier III facility provides the foundation to keep critical systems always operational and available globally 24/7.
“We are able to provide our users with a greater level of uptime thanks to the level of redundancy built into the facility, and the facility is staffed around the clock with data center engineers monitoring the health of the facility,” said Tim Porzio, vice president of IT Operations and Infrastructure.
