Fortrust introduces managed services

Colorado-based data centre operator and colocation firm Fortrust said Tuesday that it had added new management services around its high-availability data centre services.

The company says its new service will be marketed as Fortrust Managed Services, and will enable customers to outsource the management, monitoring and maintenance of their applications and information systems to the company.

The new managed services are immediately available to existing customers of the company's data center, and are on sale to new customers as well.

Fortrust says the managed services were developed in partnership with fellow Colorado-based firm Absolute Performance, a software and services company that will support monitoring, management, pre-production load testing, end user experience validation and reporting functions.

Absolute, says Fortrust, is focused on managed services, and is committed to reliability and quality service. Its ability to scale its solutions quickly to meet Fortrust's projected growth was reportedly a key to its selection.

A set of Absolute's servers and platforms dedicated to supporting the Fortrust Managed Services product will be hosted on-site in Fortrust's facility.

"We're pleased to announce that Fortrust Managed Services will provide additional value to our data center clients," said Rob McClary, general manager of Fortrust, in the press relase.

"Just as our clients trust us to deliver a superior experience for colocation, they can expect the same level of customer service and precise attention to detail with our managed services offering."

In March, Fortrust announced two new appointments - a new business development manager and a critical systems manager.
