COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- DataCenter.BZ, a leading provider of colocation, private and hybrid cloud computing solutions, and vast regional and global network access, has been named to Columbus Business First's Fast 50 for the third consecutive year (2011, 2012 and 2013). Published annually, the list recognizes the fastest-growing companies in Central Ohio across all business sectors. This year's Fast 50 winners were announced by Columbus Business First on October 10, 2013 and DataCenter.BZ was included as the only data center provider.
"It is a great honor to continue to be included in the Fast 50 as compiled by Columbus Business First, and we are proud to play such an important role to mid-market and enterprise class corporations within Columbus and throughout Ohio and surrounding states since our 2007 founding," said Gordon Scherer, DataCenter.BZ President. "We expect ongoing above-market growth as we continue to enable local and regional businesses, healthcare and education systems, and state and local agencies to leverage the performance, cost and compliance advantages of our energy efficient, purpose-built and network-rich data centers."
"Our customers achieve lower operating and capital costs, enhanced uptime, and demanding compliance and regulatory requirements," added Paul Keinath, DataCenter.BZ Vice President. "And by providing such solutions as a service, what used to require substantial and persistent individual capital investment has been transformed into a predictable operating expense for our customers who can scale and evolve these services as their own IT and technology needs change, all the while benefitting from the energy efficiencies, technology innovations and enormous economies of scale that we continue to drive."
