A3IT is the opposite of DataPipe in terms of size. As far as I know, they had only one data center. However, if someone is looking for a Certified PCI Host with a personal touch, they seemed to be the way to go. They seem to be a sub-50 person company located in North Carolina, and they took the time to understand our setup.
Initial setup costs seemed high, however was understandable for a smaller data center, which can’t spread costs based on economy of scale.
- PCI Certified Host
- Personal Touch / Small Size (could be a minus)
- Plenty of PCI Experience
- Small Size (see above)
- Couldn’t do a site-to-site VPN to servers (lack of resources?)
- Did not provide diagram of setup
- Medium to High Costs
- Didn’t have much in the way of shared storage setup (lack of resources?)
