Genesis Group invests in hosting centre

The Software as a Service (SaaS) arm of business mobile provider Genesis Group has underlined its ambitious expansion plans by investing in a new multimillion pound data centre.

Servelogic, which provides Hosted Managed Server Solutions, Hosted Email, Hosted Intranet and BlackBerry Enterprise Services has just opened its first fully-owned data centre in Leicestershire.

DC-3 has the capacity to house 2000 servers enough to service 60,000 business customers and Servelogic aims to fill the space in the next 12 months.

The new centre will provide hosted space for new customers whilst safeguarding the companys existing data centre hosting space in London and Manchester against major incidents in those areas.

Nick Sellors, Servelogics head of managed services, explains the new offering that Servelogic brings to Genesis: For the majority of businesses, a hosted server is the ideal solution to the problems of managing an on-site server.  With 24 hour support, including backup, our customers can be assured that their information is safe without the cost or staffing overheads generated by having a server in-house.   We also offer our customers Hosted Email, Hosted Intranet and BlackBerry Enterprise Services, making us a one-stop-shop for Software as a Service solutions.  This is the perfect complement to Genesis existing range of services, which currently has a strong focus on Blackberry.

Weve seen an increase in business from both large corporate and SME businesses, both of whom stand to benefit from an affordable Hosted Server solution.  In this way, were aiming to fill DC-3 in the next 12 months.

Sellors is excited about the prospects for Genesis as the two companies work together going forward: With the two businesses integrated, we will be the only company that can supply customers with a fully converged Hosted Exchange Service, Blackberry handset and phone calls, fixed line solution and mobile tracking all from the same provider and listed on the same bill.  Were also offering online sign-up and instant switch-on to make it even easier for customers to start using our products.  Its an exciting time and its fantastic to be able to offer customers something that isnt currently available anywhere else in the marketplace.

Current customers of Servelogic include divisions of Virgin Atlantic Airways, the Environment Agency and Fitness First.
