CoSentry, in partnership with Norm Waitt (co-founder of Gateway Computers), began operations with the opening of a Secure Data Center and Network Operating Center and began hosting several corporate clients while introducing an array of managed services.
The Company’s continued growth in business continuity and managed services drives a new branding of the Company’s offerings. The CoSentry brand is introduced providing one source for Work Group and Print-to-Mail Recovery along with Data Center Hosting and associated managed technical services. Continued strong client demand drove the expansion of the Omaha Work Group Recovery capability from 400 seats to 550 seats. CoSentry also established a 500 seat Work Group Recovery and Data Center facility in Kansas City, Missouri and a 250 seat Work Group Recovery and Data Center facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. CoSentry’s proprietary SolutionsDesk™ tool is also global in order to support, monitor, maintain and provide service dispatch for customers worldwide.
Due to increased market demands the Company launched additional raised floor expansion efforts in both the Omaha and Kansas City markets. CoSentry added over 6,400 square feet of raised floor space, bringing total raised floor space under management to approximately 22,000 square feet. The Company also announced that the McCarthy Group has partnered with CoSentry to provide additional capital and strategic resources. Construction began on the 100,000 square foot Midlands Enterprise Data Center.
