Fugro Chooses StratITsphere for IT Infrastructure, Security & Disaster Recovery Overhaul

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - Fugro Inc., a Texas-based oilfield services company, recently hired StratITsphere to implement and provide its primary collocation site.

"The types of projects we need to have done require specialized expertise that's beyond what you find in a good company IT department," said Adam Lee, Fugro's manager of information technology. "I've worked with StratITsphere's team in the past, and they are hands down the sharpest guys I've ever met when it comes to technology."

As part of Fugro's disaster recovery plan, the firm will house duplicate servers at StratITsphere's new Tier-4-design data center, located west of Houston. StratITsphere will create a network infrastructure that will allow a seamless switchover in the event that the systems in Fugro's offices should go offline. The infrastructure also will provide voice and data communication between the collocation facility and Fugro's headquarters.

In addition, StratITsphere will assist in securing Fugro's digital assets through various upgrades to internal systems.

Fugro is a welcome addition to StratITsphere's clientele portfolio, a company leader said.

"The work we'll be doing for Fugro is what we do best, and we have the best people in the business to do it," said Stephen Webster, president & CEO of StratITsphere. "We're pleased to be working with them, and we're looking forward to helping them with their IT needs so they can continue to grow their core business."
