QTS Realty Trust has announced that it has expanded its portfolio of Cisco Powered™ services with its QTS Managed Hosting solution — part of the company’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform. With this enhanced service, QTS can provide its customers with a wider range of cloud capabilities to help them increase their business agility.

QTS is already certified as an Advanced partner by the Cisco® Cloud and Managed Services Program (CMSP), placing it within one of the top tiers of Cisco CMSP partners. To be able to offer QTS Managed Hosting as a Cisco Powered service, QTS needed to complete a rigorous third-party audit of its services. This audit verifies that services are delivered with enterprise-class reliability, security and support.  

The Advanced designation recognizes QTS’ investment and commitment to providing cloud and managed services at Cisco’s highest standards. The shared goal is to help businesses and organizations realize faster time to value. 

“We are pleased to announce the expansion of the QTS Cisco Powered portfolio with the addition of our Managed Hosting solution,” said James Reinhart, chief operating officer, operations, QTS. “Having our cloud platform’s best-of-breed architecture meet Cisco’s strict standards is a validation of QTS’ approach to cloud and managed services and our commitment to providing our customers scalable, secure and compliant solutions.”

Cisco supports QTS through enablement programs, incentives and go-to-market benefits. QTS and Cisco will continue to work together to provide ongoing innovation through these services.

QTS’ complete portfolio of Cisco Powered cloud and managed services includes QTS Enterprise Cloud and QTS Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).
