Companies large and small will now have a way to safely store and manage their valuable information with the opening of Banks DataCom in Greenville this March.
The new high-tech venture is part of the growth experienced by Computer Peripherals Unlimited, which will open its new 2,500 sq. ft. office at 208 Arlington Boulevard as part of its expansion.
Computer Peripherals has served Eastern North Carolina businesses and residential computer users since 1999. Dan Wilson says the Banks Datacom and the new office “helps us keep up with demand. We just haven’t had enough room in our current location.” Wilson is partner with Sean Van Haelst and their company has been located at 930 A Evans St. The new location will continue to offer a computer repair service center, Wilson explained.
Banks DataCom is an affiliate of Computer Peripherals Unlimited and will provide state-of-the art network servers, security and backup for companies, regardless of size. The new venture will also provide “cloud” services, which allow companies to store and retrieve data from other locations.
“We are doing this to serve the needs of North Carolina companies who want a secure location for storage, management and maintenance of all their mission critical information,” Wilson explained. “This is a great solution for banks, medical offices, law firms and anyone who wants a secure backup.”
In the case of a “weather event,” the facility will use diesel generators to provide 25,000 watts of power that “can go 3 days before they need to be refueled,” Wilson said.
Computer Peripherals’ expansion will include the hiring of another business technician. The company provides desktop, laptop and Microsoft Windows network support, along with offsite backup, Microsoft Exchange email services, virus and spyware removal, virtual servers and technology consulting.
