Apptix Expands Into Data Foundry's Ashburn Data Center

Apptix Grows the Relationship by Entrusting Its Cloud Infrastructure to Data Foundry

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Data Foundry, a leading provider of data center colocation, disaster recovery and managed services, today announced that Northern Virginia based Apptix (OSE: APP), a premier provider of hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions, will expand its footprint within Data Foundry's new global colocation business suite in Ashburn, Virginia. Apptix is a well-established customer of Data Foundry's Austin, Texas locations.

"Having partnered with Data Foundry for several years in Austin, we're excited that Data Foundry is expanding its capabilities within our Northern Virginia backyard," said Peter Walther, Vice President of Business Operations, Apptix, Inc. "The proximity between our corporate headquarters in Herndon and their new Ashburn data center enables Apptix to more effectively leverage Data Foundry's capabilities to enhance our service for our blue-chip channel partners and global customer base."

Apptix has more than 500,000 users under contract who rely on its hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions. The company caters to businesses of all sizes -- from SOHO to Fortune 500 -- and major, blue-chip channel partners. As a provider of hosted services, it's critical the company avoid IT related downtime. For this reason, they partnered with Data Foundry, which offers extremely reliable power and cooling, carrier-neutral network services and robust physical security to avoid outages.

"People think of data centers as high-tech real estate, but we separate ourselves by focusing on being a service organization. We take responsibility for key elements of our customers' data center operations so they can focus on their core business," said Carolyn Yokubaitis, co-CEO of Data Foundry. "We are pleased to be a business partner to Apptix and look forward to their presence in our Virginia colocation facility."
