Overland Park, Kan. (March 19, 2015) – QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), one of the nation’s largest and fastest-growing providers of data center facilities and cloud services, and a leader in security and compliance, has partnered with Comstor to become a key supplier of cloud solutions, specifically the FedRAMP compliant, QTS Federal Cloud.
New York-based Comstor, with $6 billion in annual sales revenue, is a dedicated, value-added distributor of Cisco networking, collaboration, security, cloud and data center solutions through a global network of specialty resellers.
“QTS’ cloud solutions are exactly what our reseller network needs to meet their clients’ demand for flexible cloud services,” said, Geoff Fancher, Senior Vice President - Comstor U.S. “QTS’ FedRAMP certification gives our Federal customers the peace of mind they need to move to the cloud and meet the stringent requirements the government has set. Plus, both Comstor and QTS are part of the Cisco InterCloud partner ecosystem, so our strategic priorities are well aligned,” he added.
QTS Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions are available to customers who seek increased budget flexibility and control while maximizing the benefits of cloud services. QTS Enterprise Cloud and QTS Federal Cloud, both built on best-of-breed platform technologies including Cisco, EMC and VMWare, were launched in early 2014, and the QTS Federal Cloud achieved FedRAMP compliance in December 2014.
“This joint business opportunity is a win-win due to Comstor’s network of Cisco resellers and their desire to expand into the Federal market,” said Frank Eagle, vice president, business development – QTS. “There is great synergy between the two companies. We anticipate broadening our partnership beyond the Federal space to other industry verticals rather quickly,” he added.
