BLOOMFIELD HILLS — Avalon Technologies Inc. Thursday announced its 10th anniversary in business, specializing in IT services, consulting and implementation.
Also, Avalon marked the successful launch of the refreshed data center and hardware consolidation at Comerica Park for the Detroit Tigers.
Avalon also announced it had achieved Premier Partner status within Dell’s PartnerDirect program.
Brian Flynn, founder and president of Avalon, said the achievements “took a great deal of hard work and I am very thankful to our entire staff for their dedication and all their efforts. We have put together a very strong team and are looking forward to the future and continuing to grow our company.”
The completed Tiger data center project is the second successful in-house data center upgrade project for an organization owned by Illitch Holdings, Inc. Avalon Technologies also provided consultation and services to upgrade data center technologies for the Detroit Red Wings, making the two team systems compatible in leveraging resources and disaster recovery.
During the six month project, Avalon Technologies designed and installed an in-house data center that gives the Tigers’ IT department more speed and responsiveness for scores, game statistics and play-by-play video presentations. The data center now has better post game editing capabilities and more capacity for long-term storage of high definition videos.
Avalon specializes in data center infrastructure and new data storage solutions such as internal “cloud” systems with virtually infinite expansion capabilities. Avalon offers training and “immersion workshops” throughout the year at its training center in Bloomfield Hills. Avalon Technologies remote and on-site IT solutions includes: virtualization analysis and implementation, distributed research scheduling, Microsoft domain services and distributed file sharing, QL performance optimization, disaster recovery, business continuity, server clustering and failover.
As a Dell Premier Partner, Avalon Technologies gains expertise in hardware, software and services that help eliminate IT complexity for customers and help create greater efficiencies.
