dcVAST is rebranding!

Thirty years ago, dcVAST was founded to provide high touch, rapid response, support services to customers who were using the Information Technologies that were popular in the late 1980’s. The net effect of our services was to increase user and IT staff productivity and improve their confidence, which allowed them to push the envelope with these new technologies. This delivery model was superior to the services provided by the technology vendors and manufacturers. The services of dcVAST provide a coordinated support for multiple technologies employed in customer’s datacenters. They have proven to be very effective in the market, as evidenced by the satisfaction of our customers, and as demonstrated through long-term partnerships and long-lasting loyalty. I sincerely thank you for the confidence you have shown in dcVAST.

Over the years, we have evolved our portfolio of services to match the evolution of technology and the ways in which you have employed the technologies in your businesses. For the first 20 years of our history, our services were delivered primarily in on-premise datacenter environments. Approximately 10 years ago, we saw that many customers no longer wanted to own and control the IT resources in-house, and they turned to hosted infrastructure, private cloud, and Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) types of delivery models. dcVAST followed that trend, building out and delivering IaaS services and Managed Services. Those services benefitted our customers because they did not need to own infrastructure and could rely on dcVAST to perform more of the management. IaaS was especially helpful to those that were not comfortable with the public cloud, with respect to privacy, security, compliance, and availability. More recently, we have focused on helping customers evaluate and migrate to public cloud services.

Today we deliver our support services in a three-pillar model: On-Premise, Hybrid Cloud, and Multi-Cloud environments. We have put in place a robust cloud management platform, “VAST View™”, which is instrumental in managing your cloud usage and spend. We will continue to deliver our high-quality support, including our high availability and data management and data protection services.

We are now launching a major re-branding of dcVAST into “VAST IT Services™”, providing the same quality of support, managed, and professional services you have enjoyed in the past, wherever your IT resources reside now and in the future. We call it, “IT without Limits.” For the past 30 years, you have known us as dcVAST, and now you will know us as VAST. The full story will unfold in more depth and breadth in the coming days!

We look forward to the next 30 years of support to you, focusing on your needs as we have in the past. I sincerely thank you for your loyalty and long business relationship. I welcome any comments you may have regarding this exciting evolution of our company. I wish you all the Best!
