ST. LOUIS, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Contegix, a privately held technology firm specializing in Internet infrastructure services, announced plans today to begin the process of expanding globally to Europe, at the 2010 Atlassian Summit being held in San Francisco.
"Everyone at Contegix is excited and thrilled to be expanding on our capabilities by having a data center in Europe. It also signifies a period of tremendous growth and expansion for our company. We'll be adding to our staff and will be expanding the size of our corporate and support divisions to handle the growth. We've already had several notable clients express an interest in having data managed in our state-of-the-art center in Europe," said Matthew Porter, CEO and Co-Founder of Contegix.
Contegix provides Internet infrastructure services for a variety of companies – from innovative tech start-ups, to widely recognized brands such as Live Nation, and Six Apart, as well as some non-disclosed Fortune 500 companies. Clients are driven to Contegix seeking reliability in customer service and advanced engineering support to handle complex security challenges - all areas that set this unassuming, Midwestern firm apart. "We've built our business directly from referrals of happy clients. That's a pretty big testament to the quality of our work," said Porter.
The announcement comes in the wake of last year's groundbreaking news - that Contegix would offer cloud services to its customers. The Contegix cloud is now virtually unmatched by any other cloud service, public or private, in the industry when it comes to reliability and performance.
"We decided that now is the time to expand and make ours a global company, allowing us to offer more data security diversity to existing and new clients. We've also considered opening additional satellite offices in San Francisco and possibly Boston – but those options are still being considered at this point in time. First things first – Europe," stated Porter.
News of the forthcoming expansion was announced by the CTO and Co-founder, Craig McElroy, at the Atlassian Summit's Launch Pad event. "A lot of careful planning and work went into these efforts. It's a long time coming. We are ready to grow and be positioned to offer our services to more clients across the globe. We are appreciative that Atlassian permitted us to make the announcement at the Summit, which we helped to sponsor this year," said McElroy.
