Next Wave Logistics Chooses Latisys Chicago Data Center as New Home for SaaS in the Cloud

Next Wave PCI Compliant e-Commerce Platform Now Colocated at Latisys and Backed up by Latisys Disaster Recovery Services

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2014) - Latisys, a leading international provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions, today announced an IT infrastructure as a service agreement with Next Wave Logistics www.nwlinc.com, a rapidly growing provider of web-based software and services for direct selling companies worldwide.

At the heart of Next Wave is a robust, mobile-enabled platform with extensive merchandising, pricing and promotional capabilities built explicitly for the unique needs of the mobile sales force. 

With continued growth and an eye toward international expansion, Next Wave recognized the need for a more flexible, scalable and cost-effective IT infrastructure solution while containing costs.

Under the agreement, Next Wave has moved into Latisys' Chicago data center -- a 148,000 square foot, purpose-built Tier 3 facility. Latisys datacenter colocation underpins Next Wave's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business model -- including its PCI compliant e-commerce platform delivered from the Next Wave Private Cloud. Latisys is also providing new levels of resiliency and redundancy via a new disaster recovery solution that leverages Latisys' Ashburn, Va. data center.

Due to Latisys' hybrid model and scalable IaaS offerings, Next Wave is also evaluating Latisys' Cloud-Enabled Systems Infrastructure (CESI) -- a unified and highly scalable cloud hosting platform -- as it continues a methodical shift away from CapEx to a more OpEx-oriented strategy that utilizes outsourced IT infrastructure services. 

"By moving to Latisys' ultra-secure and carrier-diverse Chicago data center, we have migrated our entire business, including our cloud-based e-commerce platform, onto industry-leading technology -- in a very short period of time," said Michael S. Wherry, Senior Director, Data Center Operations. "Latisys is delivering better performance, faster network speeds, and a comprehensive DR solution, all at a cost comparable to our previous solution provider."

Over 1,100 enterprises and government organizations rely on Latisys as their trusted provider of critical IT infrastructure solutions.
