MELBOURNE, Fla., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TerraCom Direct, a leading provider of custom data center solutions including colocation, cloud, engineering design, and consulting, was selected among 50 statewide companies expected to see significant growth over the next several years.
TerraCom Direct was selected from more than 500 nominees for Florida Companies to WatchSM, a statewide program managed by economic development group GrowFL, in association with the Edward Lowe Foundation. TerraCom Direct's management team, competitive market position, and strong community involvement were among several factors that put them in contention for the award.
"These stand-out companies are all led by entrepreneurs, and have demonstrated their capacity and intent to grow," said Dr. Tom O'Neal, executive director of the Florida Economic Gardening Institute and associate vice president for the University of Central Florida's Office of Research and Commercialization. "They also all have critical intellectual property or a niche position that gives them a competitive edge in their markets," he said.
"Many data centers provide real-estate space for your equipment and that's about it," said Frank Huston, President of TerraCom Direct. "In that model, you buy your space, move your equipment in and it is up to you to manage it. We took a different tact. We seek to understand our clients' pain points and offer customized hybrid solutions, including colocation for legacy applications and integration for cloud services."
Huston and TerraCom Direct are grateful for the visibility that comes with being recognized as a GrowFL Florida Company to Watch. "For us it is validation for the amount of work we have put in growing a data center in a market that doesn't readily know we exist," Huston said.
Companies named to the list were officially recognized November 3rd at the Hard Rock Live, Universal CityWalk, Orlando.
