Jamie Pechak, Content Specialist, ServerCentral, @ServerCentral
Incorporated in 2000, ServerCentral provides colocation, cloud, disaster recovery, and managed services worldwide.
In 25 words or less, what is ServerCentral all about?
We move businesses to the cloud.
How did you get started?
As college students, Jordan Lowe and Daniel Brosk wanted to sell the extra space on their virtual private server. They posted an ad on a daily deal site, and their phone wouldn’t stop ringing. That original server ran out of room, so they bought another one, and another one, and another one and so on. When customers are buying racks and servers, that launches a company.
What problem do you solve and how do you address it better than the competition?
"For most businesses, it’s no longer a debate of cloud vs. colocation — it’s cloud and colo. That’s why we let our customers transition their infrastructure spend to the cloud at any point during their contract.”
-Jordan Lowe, CEO
How has your company culture evolved as ServerCentral has grown?
"Our culture has remained helpful and friendly despite our growth because we’re committed to hiring service-oriented people. As we've grown as a company, so have our families. Now instead of happy hour outings, we have company picnics at Six Flags with our staff and their families!"
-Bethany Saxton, Vice President of Human Resources
This one is all you. Anything else you want to tell us?
"Most people don’t know this, but ServerCentral helps customers take advantage of everything Amazon Web Services has to offer. We make moving to the cloud easy by making applications cloud-ready before a migration."
-Erin Hallett, Sales Director
