CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2013) - Latisys, a leading national provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions, today announced an IT Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) agreement with ProviNET Solutions, a leading provider of cloud-based IT solutions with an emphasis on healthcare organizations.
ProviNET provides a wide array of IT solutions for multiple vertical markets including education, manufacturing and retail. They have particular expertise in hosting, supporting, maintaining, and integrating specialized electronic medical records (EMR) applications. ProviNET is unique in its ability to host and support these applications top to bottom -- from first level support all the way up to custom integrations.
Responding to rapid business growth, diminishing capacity, and increasing emphasis on healthcare regulatory industry standards, ProviNET is moving its solution service delivery from its in-house data center to Latisys' recently expanded data center in Oakbrook, IL.
In addition to providing PCI and HIPAA compliance, Latisys' data centers are operated under SSAE 16 (SOC 2 Type 2 and SOC 3) audited controls, affirming Latisys' commitment to meet the highest standards for availability and security, while making sure all of the appropriate controls and safeguards are firmly in place.
"Our rapid business growth serving leading healthcare organizations significantly increased the need to boost our security and capacity requirements," said Steve Bruggeman, Director of Technology for ProviNET. "By moving our solutions delivery to Latisys we eliminate questions about compliance while shifting our focus from managing data center operations to the business of service delivery for our customers. Overall, the move to Latisys lowers our total cost of ownership while making our cloud services more robust with even better performance and availability."
HIPAA compliance and high security standards are mandatory for most healthcare organizations. Under terms of this multi-year deal, Latisys tailored an IaaS solution to ProviNET's specific business requirements -- leveraging Latisys' secure and compliant platform to deliver optimized bandwidth services that are passed along to ProviNET customers.
Future plans call for a distributed disaster recovery solution that will initially leverage ProviNET's current data center facility before establishing a permanent solution in one of Latisys' geographically dispersed data centers.
"We are pleased to support ProviNET with a secure and HIPAA compliant infrastructure solution underpinning their service delivery and business growth," said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Latisys. "Our national platform is ideal for delivering highly flexible and scalable IaaS solutions and exceeding demanding enterprise requirements for a variety of industries."
