National IT infrastructure and cloud solutions provider Peak 10 Inc. has been
selected to host the data center of Tractor Supply Company (TSC), the largest
retail farm and ranch store chain in the United States. TSC is leveraging 24/7
staff in Peak 10’s Nashville, Tenn. facility to maintain its data center

Tractor Supply Company, a supplier of basic maintenance products of farm,
ranch and rural customers, is experiencing strong growth and has plans to
expand its national footprint. By bolstering its IT operations with Peak 10’s
data center facilities and best-of-breed technologies, TSC can support its
growth plans, increase its agility, lower costs, improve performance and focus
its internal resources on its core competency, retail.

“Our relationship with Peak 10 provides us with best in class IT
infrastructure that is both highly available and conveniently located,” said
James Callison, chief information officer for Tractor Supply Company. “With
our data center environment securely set up at Peak 10 Nashville, we are now

customers knowing that our mission-critical data is in trusted hands.”

Tractor Supply Company is a leading edge retailer with more than 1,151 stores
in 45 states, 17,000 team members and revenues of approximately $4 billion.
Peak 10 offers TSC the ability to flexibly and cost-effectively support its
need to scale the business as it grows without significant capital expense.

“We are proud to work with an esteemed organization like Tractor Supply
Company,” said Drew Fassett, regional vice president for Peak 10. “Our
solutions for them are designed to scale and adapt to their needs. As Tractor
Supply Company continues its growth trajectory, Peak 10 will be on hand to
maintain and upgrade its IT infrastructure as needed. Our cultures and values

headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., announced earlier last year the opening of
its third data center in Nashville, Tenn. The 41,000-square-foot addition
brought Peak 10 Nashville’s total footprint to 71,500 square feet. Peak 10’s
enterprise-class facilities are the backbone for its robust cloud offerings.
