February 8th, 2008 By: Rich Miller
Santander Consumer USA Inc. (formerly Drive Financial Services) has selected Terremark Worldwide (TMRK) to provide disaster recovery services for its managed infrastructure. Santander’s managed dedicated servers and storage solutions in the NAP of the Americas in Miami will be supported by Terremark’s Infinistructure utility computing platform.
Terremark’s connectivity was a key factor in Santander’s decision, providing the ability to easily move data between Terremark facilities throughout the world and Santander Consumer USA’s remote international call centers.
“Santander Consumer USA’s decision to expand their relationship with Terremark is further proof of the strong demand from current and prospective customers in our full-suite of services,” said Barry Field, Senior Vice President of U.S. Commercial Sales for Terremark Worldwide, Inc. “Santander Consumer USA has been an excellent customer and we look forward to continuing to grow our mutually beneficial relationship in the coming years.”
“Terremark has consistently provided reliable world-class services and we believe our expanded relationship will only enhance our ability to serve our customers,” said Don Goin, CIO of Santander Consumer USA. “The company’s ability to continuously provide highly available services through the massive and diverse connectivity offered across its datacenter footprint remains a key ingredient to our successful growth.”
