CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Sept. 5, 2013) – National IT infrastructure and cloud solutions provider Peak 10 Inc. is proud to donate disaster recovery services to Tampa, Fla.-based Metropolitan Ministries.
Metropolitan Ministries is a charity that serves underprivileged and homeless families in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Polk counties in Florida through services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity, and instill self-sufficiency. The organization uses Peak 10’s Tampa data center for data backup and for a disaster recovery failover site. Metropolitan Ministries’ database consists of thousands of donors, volunteers and clients who receive services for emergency food, clothing, shelter and educational support. The result of losing such critical information would affect the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
“We keep a copy of all essential data at Peak 10 and have the option to spin up virtual servers and transfer our external Internet there in the event that a natural or man-made disaster strikes our own building where our essential data resides,” said Tim Marks, president and chief operating officer of Metropolitan Ministries. “Having Peak 10’s IT support and services ensures that no matter what we may encounter, we are able to continue our mission of helping the needy families in the Tampa Bay area.”
Metropolitan Ministries has been serving those in need since 1972, having provided over 23 million hot meals and more than 354,520 safe haven shelter nights over those 41 years. To learn more about Metropolitan Ministries or to get involved, visit www.metromin.org .
