Cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions provider Savvis has been named an industry leader by Gartner Inc. The company was chosen in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for European Managed Hosting report.
Savvis and the savvisdirect platform was named CA Technologies’ AppLogic Partner of the Year as part of the company’s 2013 CA Technologies Partner for Impact Awards. This award is given out to businesses that have innovatively used the AppLogic platform to deliver additional value to customers and drive customer adoption.
BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, awarded Savvis a Silver Certified Energy Efficient Data Center Award for its LO3 London Docklands data center. Savvis is the seventh organization in the world to demonstrate its leadership in sustainability and data center energy efficiency by earning a CEED honor, which is administered by DCProfessionals on behalf of BCS.
All of Savvis’ UK data centers have been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard. This recognizes Savvis’ ongoing efforts to ensure its operational procedures are as energy efficient as possible in its LO1, LO3, LO5 and LO6 data centers in London, Slough and Reading.
The Carbon Trust Standard is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading certifier of organizational carbon footprint reduction. The certification has been achieved as a result of Savvis’ long-term commitment to reducing its carbon and the associated energy costs. Savvis is one of a small number of cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions companies to achieve this standard across all of its UK facilities.
