The AmeriPride Services data center in Minnetonka MN is a showplace, a model for groups planning data center upgrades of their own. It wasn’t always that way. “We knew how to run a data center but not how to upgrade one,” says Data Center Manager Jeff Baken. “Our goal was to create an enterprise-class data processing center without interrupting ongoing operations, and we were looking for a reliable local partner with good relationships with the vendors who would be providing systems and services for the new center. 2NSystems came highly recommended and was prepared to oversee the entire process. They provided a project management team, coordinated all the players and all aspects of the process, and brought the project in on time and within budget.
