03/05/12 – Retail Solutions Selects Prov.Net

Project Description

Retail Solutions (RSi) selects prov.net as data center – colocation services provider

Location, SSAE16/AT104 SOC II and Ability to Accommodate Future Growth Were Key Factors

Providence, R.I., March 5, 2012 – Provdotnet, LLC. A leading provider of data center solutions, today announced that it has begun providing a multi-cabinet colocation solution to Retail Solutions Inc.

Retail Solutions, based in Mountain View California, develops and delivers a comprehensive suite of award- winning software- as- a- service (SaaS) solutions that turn downstream data, such as point- of- sale (POS), supply chain, merchandiser feedback and category data, into actionable visibility into the store and onto the shelf.

“We selected prov.net because we needed to better support our customer and user communities by moving our computing platform and related data center closer to our technical operations staff which is located in Cranston, RI.” “Prov.net’s proposal provided us the opportunity to re-locate much of our existing data center operations to Rhode Island, and they also demonstrated that they could accommodate anticipated growth”, said Richard Swan, RSi’s Chief Technical Officer.

Ron Sacks, Provdotnet’s Managing Partner, said that RSi required a “SAS70″provider to host their platform and also said, “prov.net had completed the SSAE16/AT104 SOC2 which replaced the SAS70 Type II AICPA standards”. Sacks noted, “the addition of RSI essentially doubles the utilization of prov.net’s initial site, and as a result prov.net has begun commissioning their second site, a rack-ready 3800 square foot data center also located in Providence”. Sacks said, “The second site should be ready for new customers no later than mid-April”.
