While many data centers operate most comfortably in the proverbial cloud, for the Space Coast’s SD Data Center, relationship with clients starts with a good old fashioned white board meeting. “For all of our customers, we first want to sit down and identify what problems they are trying to solve,” explains Frank Huston, Satcom Direct’s director of Global Data Services and the head of the SD Data Center division. “We’re not trying to sell you widgets A, B, and C. We walk our clients through the process very differently from the standard data center.” With state-of-the-art facilities, SD Data Center is the only freestanding purpose-built data center in Brevard County, meets several national compliance requirements (including HIPAA and CJIS), and provides colocation and cloud services to multiple vertical industries, including aviation, finance, legal and healthcare. ◆
