Lifeline Data Centers Named One of 20 Most Promising Data Center Solution Providers in 2016 by CIOReview

INDIANAPOLIS – June 29, 2016 – Indianapolis-based Lifeline Data Centers was named one of the 20 most promising data center solution providers in 2016 by CIOReview last week. As an innovator and expert in this field, Lifeline is thrilled to receive an accolade of this caliber from a trusted industry resource.

CIOReview called Lifeline’s data center workspaces “superior and compliant”, citing Lifeline’s 99.999 percent uptime, multi-layered security systems, and highly compliant processes. By building custom processes and scaling them across their client base, Lifeline is able to provide these services for less than what a company would have to invest to develop them internally.

With plans to expand, Lifeline Data Center’s flagship data center, which will be located in Fort Wayne, Ind., is slated to be up and running by the end of 2016. The 60,000 square foot facility will create 90 to 100 high-paying jobs in the Fort Wayne area.

“Lifeline Data Centers has a long history of innovation, bringing Lifeline to a point where we’re able to obtain our FedRAMP certification, “ says Alex Carroll, co-owner and data center innovator. “Not only are we FedRAMP-ready, but we are in the process of building one of the first — if not the first — EMP-resistant, commercial data centers in the country.”

“FedRAMP should be important to any business in corporate America,” said Rich Banta, co-owner and compliance expert at Lifeline. “It promises our clients the highest level of security for their data, while also being certified by the federal government to execute on military and government cloud computing contracts.”

Recognizing Lifeline’s standard of care for their operations, CIOReview included Lifeline Data Centers on this prestigious list for 2016. As a leader in the data center space, Lifeline Data Centers will continue to dedicate its mission towards innovation, excellence, and the highest level of compliance.
