DISTek(R) Integration, Inc. Selects Vital Support Systems as New IaaS Provider 
Through ReliaCloud(TM) Service 
DES MOINES, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/13 --   Vital Support
Systems and DISTek Integration, Inc. announced today they have signed
a multi-year contract. Vital will provide Infrastructure-as-a-Service
(IaaS) and ReliaCloud(TM) services (a virtualized, outsourced
production server environment) for DISTek.  
"Our number one objective was to get out of the network
administration role," says Bob Theisen, Information Technology
manager at DISTek. "In choosing Vital Support Systems, we have
successfully transferred our IT processes to a strong, local partner
that provides system redundancy and failover. We feel confident our
IT is in an environment that's highly secured and element-protected.
Plus, we get more time to focus on our core business." 
DISTek is an embedded software services provider specializing in
off-highway vehicle systems. The company specializes in turning
proof-of-concept software into production-ready firmware for the most
demanding off-highway systems. 
In choosing Vital Support Systems and its ReliaCloud service, DISTek
is moving to a completely virtualized, outsourced production server
environment.  
"We found that with ReliaCloud, we could move to a more
comprehensive, enterprise-class solution at a lower cost," Theisen
said. "Easy access to the Vital data center was probably the key
driver of all the benefits. But, I can't speak enough about the
completeness of the service offering, from access to hosting, to
administration, to managed services, support services and
implementation, the Vital project management team has met or exceeded
all my expectations." 
In addition to ReliaCloud, Vital offers a comprehensive suite of
products and services, including: planning, engineering, procurement,
and installation. The company also provides management of IT
infrastructure solutions from world-class hardware and software
vendors such as Cisco, EMC, Hewlett Packard, VMware, Microsoft, and
Citrix. Vital provides a wide range of IT solutions, including
colocation, disaster recovery, and data security services to
businesses throughout the Midwest. 
"We are thrilled to partner with DISTek," says Jeff Sparling, CEO,
Vital Support Systems. "We look forward to delivering the highest
level of service and the technology infrastructure that DISTek is
counting on."
