Ascenty, the data center infrastructure leader in Latin America, has entered into a strategic alliance with the Intercompany Group to help it expand its offering of cloud computing services in Brazil. The technology solutions integrator looked to Ascenty to provide the quality and security necessary to innovate its services, guaranteeing satisfactory results and full-time customer service.
The project started in late 2017 with the goal of migrating Intercompany’s internal data center to a cloud-based environment. Specialized in managed services and business continuity, the company was looking for a provider to host its operations in order to build a new business focused on services (backup, homologation, migration and disaster recovery in the cloud), and found in Ascenty the ideal partner to start that journey with.
“We put our trust in Ascenty, because it offered us the best business and technical proposal to meet our needs. The partnership has delivered productivity gains across the entire company, both internally and in the increase of service provision contracts Outsourcing was the best choice for security, connectivity and maintenance in a 24x7 operating environment,” said Marcelo Mathias Cereto, Operations Director at Intercompany.
Project implementation lasted three months and the cloud strategy opened up a range of development and economic growth possibilities for the company, guaranteeing the availability of several operating environments (IBMi, AIX, Linux on Power, Windows, Linux on Intel, among others). “With the enhanced remote service capacity, the Ascenty partnership allowed us to expand our customer base by providing us with the availability and security needed to keep up with the industry’s technological evolution, and we are growing our service portfolio to include Storage as a Service and Storage of Legacy Environments,” added Renan Flávio Varnier, Technology Leader at Intercompany.
With nine years’ experience in the market, Ascenty sets itself apart for the strategic delivery of data center solutions. The company continues to experience strong growth across Latin America, with 18 data centers currently in operation or under construction in the region, and offers connectivity expertise as a competitive advantage: through 4,500 kilometers of dedicated fiber-optics, the company connects all of its data centers to each other and to the world’s leading cloud providers, and enables interconnections with customers’ offices and shared environments.
“We are very pleased to grow Intercompany’s business through the cloud-based digital transformation. Our hosting colocation service offers world-class infrastructure and a certificate from industry-leading institutions,” explained Marcos Siqueira, VP of Operations at Ascenty. “The company’s growth strategy is aligned with the evolution of the cloud computing market, which will grow in Latin America at rates higher than those seen in other regions, according to the IDC. Along this path, security and efficiency – which are seen as Ascenty’s top values – can really make a difference,” Marcos added.
