NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 13, 2010) – Peak 10 Inc., a managed services company with world-class data centers, is pleased to announce that it will provide hosting and network monitoring services to Dick’s Last Resort, a one-of-a-kind restaurant chain with locations across the United States. Peak 10 will deliver fully-monitored data center services for Dick’s Last Resort out of an enterprise-class facility on its Nashville campus.
“Although we met with various regional IT providers, none offered us the same level of customer support as Peak 10 or the overall feeling that we could entrust its expert team with our entire IT operations,” said Ralph W. McCracken, President and COO of Dick’s Last Resort “Had we continued to host in-house, we would not have the high level of security and redundancy that Peak 10 provides to help us avoid disruptions from commercial power emergencies or natural disasters.”
Nashville, Tenn.-based Dick’s Last Resort is a restaurant group that prides itself on being a completely unique dining experience. Its seven locations are known for their outrageous, irreverent, energetic service staff that inflicts sarcastic humor upon their many guests. “A 25 year old established business like Dick’s Last Resort cannot afford to lose network access. Our high-availability hosting and around-the-clock monitoring services allow for the chain’s restaurants to be up and running on the network at all times, allowing credit card processing and continuous service to customers,” said Drew Fassett, the vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Nashville. “As Dick’s Last Resort grows and opens additional restaurants across the country, we look forward to supporting its growth and effectively maintaining its IT infrastructure.”
