IDE Group’s network helps Securus offer triple cloud failover
Securus, the Private Wide Area Networking company with a view that service is key, took up IDE Group services after deciding what was needed to ensure their clients lived the ‘always live’ uptime promise.
Over a four week period, IDE Group’s Partner team worked with Securus on the most critical decision they would make for their business and helped them discover the best forward thinking solution. It was of paramount importance that Securus had resilient access to a large network backbone to deliver multiple connectivity services, not just on closing the sale.
IDE Group’s network footprint and Data Centre coverage as well as leverage of third partnerships already in place, was the perfect fit for Securus’s requirements, plus by going with IDE Group their entire infrastructure was under one single contact too.
Securus were provided with racks of colocation space in two of IDE Group’s Points of Presence (PoP) DC’s in London, connected by IDE Group’s network as the backbone to link their sites. This was valuable because being on the same infrastructure is future proofed, meaning IDE Group guarantee further growth scalability.
As well as colocation and access to the network, IDE Group also provided IP Transit so that Securus could make use of the excellent peering.
Before and during the living partner relationship, IDE Group’s Partner team have continued to work on future business plans with Securus to ensure their technology will allow them unrelenting growth. Huge amounts of IT infrastructure as the foundation of Securus’ business, requires a wholly honest relationship, and the partnership has allowed this consistently.
The IDE Group solution will continue to improve business for Securus as it has ultimately extended Securus’ reach considerably by allowing them to link, in a virtual way, with all the DC’s that sit on IDE Group’s network already. This opened up an ever expanding pool of customers who share DC space with IDE Group.
Securus are about uptime, everything they do is geared around making sure their customers get access to their cloud based applications 24/7/365 without outages and problems, so the IDE Group culture of relentlessly protecting customers and ensuring live time has been invaluable to Securus.
