MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- VISI, a leader in managed hosting and connectivity services, announced today it will move its headquarters to Eden Prairie to accommodate its significant growth in managed hosting, colocation and data center services, as well as growth in personnel.
"The expanded headquarters represents a significant milestone for VISI," says Mike Sowada, CEO of VISI. "VISI has experienced growth of over 18% a year. The additional space will allow us to keep up with customer demand."
The new Eden Prairie headquarters -- an approximately 50,000 square foot building located at 10230 70th Street West, Eden Prairie, MN 55344 -- quadruples the size of VISI's previous headquarters and provides room to build a world-class data center. VISI will also continue to expand services and increase staff at their SAS 70 Type II data center located at 180 East 5th Street in downtown St. Paul.
"Business continuity is important to our customers. They expect operations to be up and running 24x7," says Gary Elfert, Director of Sales & Marketing for VISI. "The new location will provide additional geographic redundancy for VISI's customers who require advanced disaster recovery and load balancing services."
VISI will be located in what is known as the Golden Triangle business district, a prestigious part of Eden Prairie that is home to Compellent, Digital River, Fingerhut Direct Marketing and ShopNBC.
Construction on VISI's new offices will begin immediately and the move-in date is scheduled for May 1, 2008.
