Ultimate Software, a provider of talent management solutions, has selected 1Vault Networks, a provider of disaster recovery and hosted IT services, for secured data backup and server colocation for some of the company’s corporate applications and backup systems.
Ultimate Software has signed a multi-year agreement for customized internet connectivity and colocation backup at 1Vault’s Category five hurricane-rated data colocation center in Fort Lauderdale.
In addition to data colocation, 1Vault offers businesses and governmental agencies hosted IT services and disaster recovery suites. The high-tech facility provides a fully redundant infrastructure with utility power feeds backed by maximum-load generator support, A/C chillers for environmental control and a raised floor data center with full nine feet ceiling height.
Bill Hicks, chief information officer of Ultimate Software, said: Ultimate Software believes in having redundancy in place for all of our corporate systems. To do this, we required a secure data center located close to our headquarters in South Florida that has the hardened infrastructure, FEMA class-1 rating, and world-class security features we were looking for in a colocation facility. 1Vault Networks has been a great choice in providing us a safe and convenient location to create a redundant environment for our corporate applications.
