Tenzing opens up New Data Center in United States
Dallas, Texas, Data Center Increases Geographic Coverage for Growing Number of E-Commerce Clients
TORONTO – May 23, 2013
Tenzing Managed IT Services (Tenzing), a leading provider of hosting solutions for e-commerce clients, System Integrators (SIs) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers, today announced the opening of its first U.S. data center to support the company’s growing number of cross-border e-commerce clients. Located in Dallas, TX, the new enterprise-class facility is now ready for new deployments. All existing Tenzing services will be supported in the new data center, including Tenzing’s Everest Enterprise Cloud.
Through its data centers located in Toronto, ON, and Vancouver and Kelowna, BC, 30% of Tenzing’s current business is from clients outside of Canada. The addition of this fourth facility in Dallas, TX provides greater flexibility for clients that prefer to have their systems housed and managed in a U.S.-based data center. The location and proximity of the new facility also benefits clients in South and Latin America.
“Over the past year, we’ve been very focused on building and delivering the services our e-commerce clients need to keep their stores running smoothly around the clock,” says Brian Shepard, Founder and CEO of Tenzing. “Our efforts are paying off and we are now seeing increasing demand from large cross-border clients looking for the unique managed services we provide. The Dallas location offers one of the best network connectivity hubs in North America and an attractive business climate for technology companies. We are now even better positioned to service our e-commerce and other mission-critical clients across the continent.”
As a highly specialized IT service provider in the e-commerce sector, Tenzing supports leading technology platforms such as Oracle ATG Web Commerce, IBM WebSphere Commerce, Intershop, Magento and others. The company offers an array of complementary services such as comprehensive application monitoring, DoS mitigation, end-to-end PCI compliance, content delivery, and load testing.
