Freudenberg IT Announces The Grand Opening Of Its Newest Office and Data Center In North America


DURHAM, N.C. ---- Freudenberg IT (FIT), a global leader of mission-critical managed hosting services today announced the opening of its newest data center and office in Durham, NC. By investing in new offices and data centers, and hiring talented personnel, FIT is responding to the growing demand for its IT outsourcing, application hosting, and SAP managed hosting services.

We have been running and hosting SAP systems for over 40 years and we understand the importance of security, data privacy, quality of service, agility, and the service level requirements in support of mission-critical applications,” said Michael Heuberger, President & CEO. “We are at the forefront of the latest IT trends that impact our customers, including cloud computing and big data. As a result, we continue to enhance our mission-critical hosting services portfolio to meet the growing demands of the markets we serve.”

The new office and data center is located in a 30,000 square foot solid-concrete building on a 13-acre campus in the heart of the Research Triangle Park. The property offers plenty of space for future expansion, utilizing FIT’s unique modular data center concept to scale out the facility. Based on business growth, FIT can construct data centers as self-contained, reinforced bunkers within the data center building without the need to retrofit or interrupt existing data center operations and modules. It also allows FIT to implement the latest data center technologies when expanding the data center footprint.

The new data center is consistent with FIT’s other data centers and incorporates its highly successful and robust “Metro Data Center Cluster” and “Bunker-within-a-Bunker” infrastructure designs. Customers are able to achieve mission-critical service levels, high availability, disaster recovery, and data security simultaneously. The data center infrastructure is completely “2N” redundant throughout, supporting both planned and unplanned downtimes without interruption to customer systems. Furthermore, the new data center houses FIT’s most popular cloud hosting platform, FITvFlex.

“FIT has been and continues to be a trail-blazer in the hosting of mission-critical applications, like SAP, in the cloud. FITvFlex provides our customers with rapid system deployment, application availability and throughput, ongoing technical applications support, and robust data security policies and procedures; all with an improved cost-benefit ratio. Our services have been uniquely engineered from the ground up to specifically deploy and operate mission-critical software applications, like SAP, in the cloud with optimal performance and unbeatable uptimes. The FITvFlex cloud architecture is rapidly becoming the platform choice for our customers, supporting over 40% of our existing customers’ SAP applications, and over 90% of our new customers over the past two years,” said Todd Kemmerly, SVP of Sales and Marketing.

“This multi-million dollar office and data center expansion reflects the significant growth that we have experienced since we opened our doors in the America’s in 2003. We chose to locate our North American headquarters here in Durham, NC due to its mild climate, availability of power and networking infrastructure, and availability of highly qualified IT personnel drawn in by the many high tech companies and world-class universities located in the area. Best of all, North Carolina offers our employees a great quality of life, and we are very proud that we are able to contribute to the economic development of the area,” explained Michael Heuberger.
