STERLING, VA – September 15, 2015 — / — Virtacore, a leading cloud service provider specializing in virtual Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions utilizing VMware, is thrilled to unveil a new strategic partnership with CoreBTS, a leading provider of managed services including network operation and data security.

Virtacore provides cloud data backup and assistance with disaster recovery planning to its valued customers – the company was one of only two domestic cloud service providers with zero downtime in 2014. Virtacore offers both IaaS and VMware-based cloud hosting solutions to meet clients’ needs. With locations at Equinix data centers stationed in Ashburn, Virginia, and Chicago, Illinois, Virtacore has been in the cloud services business since 2009.

CoreBTS brings another element to the table. As a managed services provider (MSP), CoreBTS runs additional assets, such as network operation center and security operation center services, which should prove invaluable to Virtacore clients moving forward.

Rick Rothenberger, national director of cloud and managed services at CoreBTS, is looking forward to working with Virtacore in the near future.

“We had a multitude of choices when looking for a partner in the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) space. Virtacore just fit,” Rothenberger said. “They use reference architecture for their systems infrastructure such as Cisco UCS, Nimble Storage and VMware. CoreBTS are experts within those technologies.

“Also, Virtacore’s willingness to be flexible is a key to our success, as our customer base is varied across multiple verticals. For example, some of our customers are running Oracle, and a few are using open-source technologies. Our customers’ success depends on our flexibility, adaptability and resourcefulness.”

For CoreBTS, it was a strategic decision to team with Virtacore. The company wanted to make absolutely sure that it could provide an IaaS solution that would allow existing customers to scale their services while keeping their applications highly available. Combining CoreBTS, Virtacore and Equinix into one unified solution does this perfectly.

Virtacore Chief Executive Officer George Naspo is similarly excited about the prospect of working with CoreBTS.

“We are thrilled to add CoreBTS into our CoreCHANNEL program. Together, with our IaaS and DRaaS capabilities and CoreBTS’s multiple network managed services, we can provide our customers with the security and flexibility they need to protect their data.”
