In the mid 1990's, Connectria's CEO and founder, Rich Waidmann, recognized that nearly all companies were running IT Infrastructures (data centers, servers, networks, databases, applications) that used the same core technologies and skill sets as every other company. With nearly 20 years in the IT industry, Rich realized there would be significant economies of scale by creating a world-class commercial IT Department that could support IT Infrastructures for hundreds of clients. So in 1996, Rich set out to create a better model to deliver IT Infrastructures and founded Connectria Corporation.
From day one, Connectria was built from the ground up as a world-class Virtual IT Department focused on the needs of large and mid-sized companies. Rich began by assembling a talented team of software engineers, systems engineers, network engineers, and database administrators from some of the top IT organizations in the world. Then in 1998, Connectria built its first 10,000 sq. ft fault-tolerant World Class Data Center in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1999 Connectria opened its world-class Network Operations Center (NOC) staffed 24/7 with skilled technicians. In 2001 Connectria opened its second fault-tolerant World Class Data Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to provide data center redundancy and disaster recovery.
