Austin, TX – June 22, 2011 – Data Foundry, a leading provider of data center outsourcing and colocation services, announces today that Delta Rigging and Tools, Inc. (DR&T), the largest U.S. provider of industrial lifting products and services, has chosen to outsource its corporate data center to Data Foundry. Delta Rigging and Tools relies on Data Foundry’s secure, carrier-neutral facility to effectively and reliably manage its primary corporate servers.

DR&T offers a complete portfolio of lifting solutions across a wide range of industries including Oil & Gas and Transportation. With their corporate office based in the Houston area, DR&T requires a secure colocation facility located away from the high risk Gulf Coast hurricane zone. Data Foundry’s Austin Data Center is DR&T’s main hub for its entire corporate network, utilizing colocation space, along with primary and back-up Internet connections. Data Foundry’s data centers located in Austin, Texas provide a stable environment due to the region’s low incidence of natural disasters.

“Data Foundry’s strategic location away from the Gulf Coast hurricane zone and its strong reputation in the industry were the deciding factors in our selection,” states Adam Orgeron, IT Manager of Delta Rigging. “The Data Foundry team took the time to listen and provide us with the best, most cost-effective solutions, rather than just trying to make a quick sale. I was confident that we were receiving a true consultation and the level of professionalism was beyond our expectations.”

“Delta Rigging joins a growing trend of Houston-based companies moving their primary production servers to Austin,” states Shane Menking, President and CFO of Data Foundry. “Our Austin facilities provide an ideal location for companies trying to protect their mission-critical operations from a natural disaster.”
