Shelton, CT - Cervalis, a premier and trusted provider of technology and IT services, today announced it has been named to the 2014 Marcum Tech Top 40, a joint initiative of the Connecticut Technology Council and Marcum LLP.
“We are honored to once again be recognized as one of the Marcum Tech Top 40 honorees,” said Michael Boccardi, president and CEO of Cervalis. “We’re proud to be part of a state that is committed to improving its economic competitiveness. As companies grow and invest in their IT infrastructure, they will contribute in a greater way to the state economy, and take advantage of a rebounding U.S. economy.”
Recognition as a 2014 Marcum Tech Top 40 honoree in the IT services category, an award with which Cervalis was previously bestowed, comes amidst continued growth for the regional IT services provider. The Shelton-based company opened its newest data center in Norwalk in December 2013, which is also the largest in Connecticut. Cervalis also owns and operates high-availability data centers in Stamford, Connecticut, Totowa, New Jersey and Wappingers Falls, New York.
“Cervalis’ expansion allows us to support Connecticut’s growing industries – hedge funds, biotech and health care, to name a few – that rely on 100% uptime and business resiliency to maintain operations,” said Boccardi. “To that end, we view ourselves as an integral part of the state’s economic development agenda.”
Of note, while 20 percent of the country’s data centers are housed in the northeast, only 20 data centers call Connecticut home, according to Datacenters.com. Cervalis’ newest facility is unique in that it has power supplied by two electric companies.
The Marcum Tech Top 40 celebrates Connecticut’s technology companies in the area of revenue growth. Awards are given annually in six verticals: advanced manufacturing; energy/environmental technologies; life sciences; new media/Internet/telecom technologies; IT services; and, software.
As a company built by IT veterans for IT organizations, Cervalis understands the importance of security, availability, scalability and reliability in helping businesses achieve their goals. For more than a decade, the company has provided work area recovery to businesses in the tri-state region. Currently, more
than 200 companies, including Fortune 500s to SMBs in the financial, legal, healthcare, insurance, telecommunications, media and high-tech industries, trust Cervalis to boost their business resiliency.
