MADISON, Wis. (Sept. 27, 2012)—TEAM Technologies
is changing its name to Vital
Support Systems. The name change is
part of the evolution of the TDS Hosted & Managed Services, LLC (TDS HMS) strategy
and follows the recent acquisition
of Vital Support Systems LLC (June 2012).
“Changing the name to Vital Support Systems provides greater visibility to the
additional capabilities and product engineering now available to all of our
customers,” says Bill Megan, president of TDS HMS headquartered in Madison, Wis.
“Combined, Vital and TEAM have very strong capabilities, as well as talented
personnel who are positioned for growth in the quickly expanding world of cloud
offers a comprehensive suite of products and services, including: planning,
engineering, procurement, installation, and management of IT infrastructure
solutions from world-class hardware and software vendors such as Cisco, EMC,
Hewlett Packard, VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix. Combining TEAM’s
state-of-the-art Tier III and Tier II data centers in Wisconsin and Iowa with Vital’s
product portfolio strengthens the shared service offering. Together, they will
be able to provide a wide range of IT solutions, such as colocation, disaster
recovery, and data security services to businesses throughout the Midwest.
Additionally, TDS HMS’ newly launched ReliaCloud™ product offering is now available to the Wisconsin market
through Vital, at the former TEAM data center. ReliaCloud is a
complete, enterprise-class cloud solution that handles scalability and high
performance data management for use in public, private, and hybrid cloud
configurations. The compliant-capable,
cloud solution is designed for
resource intense applications and databases that require a secure operational
framework, while enabling customers to meet HIPAA/HITECH, GLBA and other regulatory compliance
TDS HMS announced
the availability of ReliaCloud in Iowa through Vital in mid-August and through
VISI in Minnesota earlier this month. Built on Cisco, EMC, and VMware
technologies, the fully redundant ReliaCloud solution is located in TDS HMS’
III data centers in Eden Prairie,
Minn., Madison, Wis., and Des Moines, Iowa.
