By Leveraging Peak’s Cloud, Genpro Inc. Eliminates Costly CAPEX Model and Ensures Maximum Uptime
Denver, Colorado – January 21, 2014 – Colorado-based Peak®, an enterprise-class IaaS Cloud provider for channel partners, announces that Genpro, Inc. leverages its enterprise-class cloud to ensure high IT performance, eliminate costly CAPEX models and deliver maximum uptime. True to Peak’s 100% channel centric model, Genpro was first introduced to Peak by channel partner, Telx. All teams work closely together to design the most optimal cloud solution and ensure smooth migrations to the cloud. With a cloud solution powered by Peak, Genpro is able to migrate its entire data infrastructure to the cloud along with full implementation of a Virtual Desktop Solution. By utilizing Peak’s cloud and not managing their infrastructure in-house, Genpro eliminates all hardware, and will enjoy a 20% cost reduction over a five-year period.
As a national logistics management company, Genpro’s expertise lies in the safe, reliable transport of freight, which requires the highest reliability and 24×7 support. The company specializes in transportation management solutions for perishable and non-perishable freight throughout North America, and must adhere to strict requirements to ensure 100% contact with its drivers, optimal freight temperatures and compliance with many state regulations.
“IT managers and directors today are tasked with future-proofing IT environments, using the most efficient, flexible and reliable platform as possible,” comments Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of Peak. “By leveraging Peak’s secure cloud platform, companies like Genpro do not have to build out their own cloud environment or manage the physical aspects of their data networks, which frees them up to focus on core initiatives. Peak’s cloud solution eliminates costly tasks like maintenance contracts, buying new equipment, outfitting a data center with reliable systems and purchasing licenses.”
“Peak‘s guidance and expertise was crucial in our decision to outsource to the cloud versus running our own datacenter,” states Ari Weinstock, Information Technology Manager for Genpro. “Peak works closely with us to help determine how much CPU capacity, IOPs and hard drive space we need. When looking at a five-year plan, we will have savings each year along with other benefits. Had we decided to run our own IT environment, our hardware would be in need of a complete refresh in years four and five. Also, we would have had to make sure we had the right kind of in-house support to keep up with older systems and we would still have needed to purchase new equipment. By outsourcing, Peak will refresh our hardware in year three and we will always have the best in breed configuration and equipment. Peak made the decision to move away from our expensive CAPEX model quite easy.”
Distributing cloud services exclusively through channel partners, Peak helps resellers, distributors, agents and service providers leverage the cloud powered by Peak. In turn, end-user clients are able to increase control of their environments and manage resources on demand – all with a 100% SLA guarantee.
