(The Hosting News) – OneNeck® IT Solutions, a leading cloud services and ERP Application Management provider, announced today they have signed a new three-year contract to provide ReliaCloud™ for Minnesota-based Metafile. The cloud-based hosting solution, known as ReliaCloud, is designed for resource-intensive applications and databases that require a secure and compliance-ready operational framework.
Established in 1979, Metafile is an established, independent and efficient provider of paperless document management software applications supporting accounts payable, accounts receivable and human resources departments in middle-market and large businesses nationwide. Metafile also provides one of the industries most cost-effective cloud based CRM and donor management solutions for non-profit organzations.To date, more than 3,500 organizations have translated Metafile’s information management solutions into an enterprise-wide value and competitive advantage.
According to Jeff Boe, vice president of Operations and a Partner at Metafile, the company built its own data center a year ago and has since been developing new products in it. Prior to their relocation to OneNeck’s ReliaCloud, the company has been in a traditional colocation setting where they own and manage all of their servers, storage and networking equipment.
Boe says, “Moving to OneNeck is one of our most strategic decisions. We know data centers and the technology involved. We want to put our most valuable assets, our IT infrastructure, in OneNeck’s data center. We’re going to do it using their ReliaCloud service. The ReliaCloud model gives us much-needed flexibility and elasticity in our IT hosting environment. It will allow us to quickly ramp up or down based on our business needs.”
Although Metafile had been using a colocation provider for many years, the company was looking for an end-to-end IT provider. Boe noted that as soon as he read about all the companies coming together as OneNeck IT Solutions, he knew that’s where Metafile needed to be.
“OneNeck represents a great platform for our hosted solutions and our internal IT needs,” said Nick Sprau, VP of Marketing for Metafile. “We are also working with their ERP application management division to offer MetaViewer Paperless ERP solutions to existing ReliaCloud Microsoft Dynamics AX and Baan from Infor customers all in a single, totally managed and secure ReliaCloud environment.”
“Metafile will benefit from moving their IT infrastructure to our ReliaCloud platform,” says Terry Swanson, senior vice president, Solutions Providers at OneNeck. “By leveraging our high-performance cloud computing platform, their mission-critical business applications, which require reliable and scalable computing infrastructure, are guaranteed to be operational and backed by our 100 percent uptime guarantee.”
