COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – January 13, 2009 – Accellos, a leading provider of supply chain execution software solutions, is pleased to announce the general availability of its newly built managed hosting environment, offering enhanced security, reliability, speed and capabilities to its customers seeking off-premise data hosting.
The facility is located in Denver, Colorado, and is collocated with Viawest Corp. (www.viawest.com). ViaWest is a leading provider of Collocation Services, with 15 datacenters throughout the U.S.
“Our customers continue to ask us to supplement their on-premise IT capabilities by providing a robust, secure location to run their mission-critical applications.
