Contegix maintains a state-of-the-art data center from which it offers web hosting services with 100 percent uptime and strict support guarantees.

"We can provide everything necessary to move a customer's infrastructure out to a hosted environment and manage their applications," said Contegix Co-founder and CEO, Matthew Porter. "In many cases, the proper management and operation of the database is one of their key concerns.
