Move to CentriLogic expected to significantly reduce IT costs for the aviation services giant; CentriLogic agrees to provide 50% more space and capacity in next five years to support Menzies Aviation’s growing IT requirements
BRACKNELL, UK, October 24, 2012 – CentriLogic, a leading international provider of data center solutions to global enterprises, today announced it has been selected by Menzies Aviation, the global provider of passenger, cargo and ramp handling services, as the primary data center services provider to host its “always on-demand” business applications.
Menzies Aviation, with operations in more than 136 stations in 32 countries and supported by a worldwide team of 18,000, needed to partner with a flexible and reliable data center services provider to fulfill its IT hosting requirements. After spending several months evaluating multiple data center services providers throughout Europe, Menzies Aviation selected CentriLogic and its new state-of-the-art data center in Bracknell, UK.
“Menzies Aviation is a true 24/7/365 business – with daily operations across the globe, our operations never stop and our business applications are always on-demand,” commented Justin Apps, Head of Enterprise Architecture. “After a thorough evaluation of multiple facilities and providers, CentriLogic’s Bracknell data center immediately ticked all of the required boxes for security, network connectivity, power, redundancy, scalability, and accessibility. Additionally, the emphasis that CentriLogic places on knowledge, expertise, and flexibility, along with its dedication to developing strong vendor-client relationships is unmatched in the industry.”
The move to the new facility has more than doubled the capacity of Menzies Aviation’s systems and has produced significant savings on the IT spend. The aviation services giant has been a fast adopter of the latest technology offerings and the savings will enable them to continue investing in state-of-the-art infrastructure. CentriLogic has also entered into an agreement to reserve an additional 50% of space and capacity to cater to Menzies Aviation’s growth requirements throughout the next five years.
“We are very excited to provide Menzies Aviation with the technological infrastructure and robust hosting environment it requires to successfully and securely run its mission-critical business applications on a global scale,” said Robert Offley, President and CEO at CentriLogic. “By selecting CentriLogic, Menzies Aviation can achieve peace of mind knowing that their customers will consistently receive the highest level of service reliability and availability.”
