Charlotte, North Carolina – (The Hosting News) – March 27, 2007 – Independent data center operator and managed services company, Peak 10, has appointed Monty Blight, to Vice President and General Manager of Managed Services, to direct Peak 10â€™s growth, new product development and partner relationships.
David H. Jones, President and Chief Executive Officer of Peak 10 remarked, â€œMonty has been a formidable contributor to the success of the company for over five years and as a result, he understands our markets, services and what it takes to deliver superior customer value. We are fortunate to have a key senior executive with his background and knowledge leading the growth and expansion of our managed services.â€
Mr. Blightâ€™s promotion is a response to a steady increase in the number of new and existing Peak 10 customers asking for help in managing their expanding mission-critical equipment and applications to enable their in-house technical staff to address daily business IT needs.
Mr. Blight commented, â€œThere are just so many customers whose business success is outstripping their ability to properly fund and staff reliable IT functions in-house. We work closely with them to provide scalable, economical options to grow their business without being buried by the increased storage, security and server management needs. Other customers simply choose to focus their technology staff on their core business applications while leaving the mundane but ultra critical infrastructure and services piece to Peak 10.â€
According to Mr. Blight, more and more customers are asking Peak 10 to centrally manage their enterprise applications and equipment in one of Peak 10â€™s state-of-the-art, secure data centers. Peak 10â€™s managed services include data protection, server management, system administration, monitoring, enterprise messaging, disaster recovery, remote hands and managed security.
