To achieve that, our team of IT experts attends weekly training sessions conducted by various IT solution providers.

Our Tech Talks blog series offers a snapshot of these educational sessions.
A new brand has emerged in the data center and hybrid IT provider space: Flexential. The new name resulted from the re-branding of the company formed when ViaWest and Peak 10 merged in August 2017. Our team of expert cloud consultants recently had a discussion with a Flexential representative to discuss the solutions and services they offer.
The company provides data center solutions including colocation, managed solutions, cloud, and professional services. With assets including 41 data centers, 100Gb of network backbone and 95 megawatts of power, the provider serves more than 4,200 customers in the U.S. and Canada across more than 31 industries. Additionally, the organization can ensure compliance with industry regulations including HIPAA, HITRUST, SOC 3, SSAE 18, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS.
Here’s a quick overview of just some of the services and solutions the data center provider offers to clients.
