(Research Triangle Park, N.C.) As part of an ongoing effort to build a stronger technology community in North Carolina, NCTechNews will be publishing Q&A profile sessions with select businesses and organizations throughout our state. In today’s installment, NCTechNews talks with Frank Mobley, Founder and CEO of Immedion, a data center services and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider.
Q: When did Immedion launch and why?
A: Immedion officially launched in 2007. We saw there was a need for data centers in midsized markets like Greenville S.C. At the time, full service data center providers were primarily located in “Tier 1” cities which are not always convenient for business located outside of the major metropolitan areas. I had been with Peak10 prior to starting Immedion and knew that customers in the midsize markets were hungry for the infrastructure benefits of large-scale data centers, but they wanted the comfort of personally knowing their service provider and being within close proximity to their servers. I started Immedion to provide customers with a single point of accountability, or “one throat to choke,” for the management of all their IT infrastructure needs. (more…)
