Dorel Juvenile USA Selects Data Cave to Advance Digital Security

Columbus, Ind. October 3, 2013

Dorel Juvenile, a segment of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), and the world’s largest juvenile products manufacturer, has selected Data Cave, a full service, fully redundant data center in Columbus, Indiana as its colocation provider. With the majority of Dorel Juvenile USA’s operations being centrally located in Columbus, Indiana, the need to partner with an accessible data center for colocation was of great importance.

“During our evaluation process, we knew that our three highest priorities for a colocation provider were redundancy, security, and a proven track record,” says Andy Riddle, IT Manager at Dorel Juvenile.

Additionally, the Data Cave facility provided assurance to Dorel Juvenile that it has selected a secure and professional partner. “After touring the facility, we knew it was state of the art. The people at Data Cave take great pride in following industry best practices. That is a big deal to us,” said Riddle.

Zack Ellison, President at Data Cave, said,  “Data Cave is excited to have Dorel Juvenile joining a growing list of customers who recognize Data Cave as a premium data center that delivers the security and 100% uptime that they require.”
