Company Inks 501 Congress Lease, Nearly Doubles Square Footage in Downtown Business District

AUSTIN, TX – July 7, 2015 — / — Spanning Cloud Apps LLC, an EMC company and a leading provider of SaaS data protection, today announced it will move into the recently redesigned 501 Congress building located in the heart of downtown Austin in early fall. The new space will increase Spanning’s square footage by more than 80 percent, thereby enabling Spanning to more-than double its headcount in order to help meet the increasing demand for Spanning’s cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery solutions, including SaaS data protection offerings for Google Apps, Microsoft Office 365 and Salesforce.

“This move enables us to grow in a location that is a natural fit with Spanning’s culture. By remaining at the center of Austin’s business and tech scene we are proud and happy to continue to provide employees with easy access to the energy of the neighborhood as well as entertainment, retail and recreational opportunities unique to downtown Austin. The new space fits all of our key criteria, which is important as we continue efforts around attracting and retaining the area’s best talent to meet increasing customer demands for cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery solutions,” said Jeff Erramouspe, vice president and general manager of Spanning by EMC.

501 Congress—a complete re-imagination of an existing structure in the heart of Austin’s downtown—was designed by the Austin-based Michael Hsu Office of Architecture and Sixth River Architects. Notable highlights for the space include abundant natural light; open workspaces; access to a rooftop lounge; and easy access to downtown Austin and the State Capitol. The new space will carry forward Spanning’s collaborative and dog-friendly environment.
