StrataCore, the premiere IT services broker in the Pacific Northwest, and QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), a leading provider of secure, compliant data center, hybrid cloud, and managed services, worked together to provide a high-quality data center solution to meet the unique business needs of a large, multi-billion-dollar retailer in the Pacific Northwest.
The large retailer engaged with StrataCore to quickly vet the market for best-in-class data center options close to their customers in the Midwest. The Midwest is a major hub for data center providers, with a high demand for storage space and data solutions. QTS’s fully integrated technology platform featuring customizable data center solutions, including colocation, managed hosting, and hybrid cloud, paired with service top-notch levels and competitive prices, made them a standout option in the area.
StrataCore knew that high-quality customer service and technical support, as well as a flexible, cost-effective solution was key for the providers brought in to bid this opportunity. It became clear as the options were narrowed during StrataCore’s custom selection process that the QTS team was truly invested in the customer’s strategic plan and committed to helping them build an infrastructure solution to meet their unique business needs. This differentiator was what sold the retailer on moving ahead with QTS.
“We value our partnership with StrataCore and are proud to serve our new joint customer,” said Frank Eagle, VP of Channels & Alliances at QTS. “StrataCore’s long-term relationship with this major northwest retailer gave the QTS team a deep understanding of their business and data center requirements.”
“QTS’ ability to deliver top-notch, customized infrastructure solutions, as well as their focus on customer care, makes them a great partner for StrataCore. We look forward to the next big win”, commented Jay Schwartz, COO and General Counsel at StrataCore.
