FORTRUST Achieves Milestone of 14 Years Continuous Critical Systems Uptime

DENVER, Sept. 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Serving clients ranging from small startups to Fortune 500 and 100 businesses, FORTRUST has proven to be a trustworthy and reliable data center partner for businesses that require high-availability. The Denver-headquartered data center and colocation services provider marked 14 years of 100% continuous critical systems uptime in its Denver data center since opening on September 12, 2001.

An enviable record in the data center industry, FORTRUST attributes their impeccable uptime record to organizational strategy and an operational mindset in alignment with their mission. FORTRUST employs an exhaustive preventive and predictive maintenance strategy, disciplined protocols and procedures, systematic employee training along with a dedicated and hard-working staff, many of which are military veterans.

Faction, an enterprise-class cloud infrastructure service provider (IAAS) offering private, public, and hybrid cloud solutions through channel partners, serves clients across all industries including retail and ecommerce sites, global universities and high-profile newspapers, and has been a client of FORTRUST for the past six years.

“As a cloud infrastructure service provider, the importance of having a reliable data center cannot be overstated,” explains Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of Faction. “We deliver 100 percent SLA to our clients and needed a data center to do the same. FORTRUST was able to prove and deliver on this requirement.”

Rob McClary, Senior Vice President and General Manager of FORTRUST, has been at the helm of FORTRUST data center’s electrical and mechanical critical systems and overseeing the data center’s operations since the company opened its doors 14 years ago.

“We’ve grown substantially over the years, and through that growth we have remained keenly focused on high-availability service delivery to our customers,” says McClary. “We are proud to celebrate this company milestone which is a result of the operational excellence and commitment of our team and look forward to continuing to provide reliable service on behalf of our clients.”
