Colo5 to House GTE Federal Credit Union Data Center Operations

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Colo5, LLC, a leading independent data center operator headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, announced it will provide comprehensive Colocation/Disaster Recovery services to GTE Federal Credit Union. 

"We are very excited to have a client like GTE Federal Credit Union in our facility.  Our goal is to expand our offerings outside of the Jacksonville market," said Scott Larsen, Vice President of Sales for Colo5.  "When clients like GTE Federal Credit Union make the decision to come to our facility, it further validates our strategy and validates Colo5 as a viable Data Center/Disaster Recovery option for companies across the state of Florida and beyond."

GTE Federal Credit Union is a non-profit financial cooperative chartered in 1935 and is one of the leading financial institutions in their market. With 21 Community Financial Centers and almost 200,000 members, GTE Federal Credit Union offers a broad range of financial products and services, from youth accounts to business services.

"We chose Colo5 mainly for two reasons. The first reason was the location. We considered other locations outside of Florida but Jacksonville made the most sense from a logistical stand point. The other reason was cost," says Anthony Bender, Vice President Member Systems and IT. "Colo5 was more cost effective and provided everything that was required for us to do business out of their data centers."
