“It is the end of the road for me in terms of my search for the ultimate data center. I know that sounds corny but that’s exactly what it is. IO allows me to enjoy a day skiing with my family because I’m not worrying about the network going down.”

Paul DeCrette, President

BlueChannel president Paul DeCrette epitomizes work/life balance. He runs the web development firm he founded in 1998 from Steamboat Springs, Colorado – a ski town of 12,000 150 miles northwest of Denver. His employees enjoy the same benefit – they work in the locations that suit them best. Ten years ago, that kind of flexibility was a perk; as more millenials join the workforce, it’s becoming an increasingly important differentiator in the competition for talent.

But for a technology company like BlueChannel, achieving true work/life balance – working to live, not living to work – requires a data center partner to deliver always-on connectivity. To provide remote hands support when it’s needed, and the rest of the time – stay out of the way.
