Animalytix Expands Presence in KC Animal Health Corridor With Cosentry's Colocation Services

The Leading Source of Geo-Located Sales Information for the U.S. Animal Health Market Reduces IT Expenses and Improves Data Security at Cosentry's New KC-Area Data Center

(Kansas City, MO) August 25, 2014 – At tonight's KC Animal Health Corridor Homecoming event, Animalytix LLC (ALX) announced their continued investment in the Corridor with the establishment of its fully redundant technology infrastructure hosted at Cosentry's new data center facility located in Lenexa, Kansas.

Animalytix is a leading provider of market intelligence services for the US animal health industry, offering a variety of market insight reporting options to manufacturers, distributors and financial concerns active in the US animal health market.  As a leading data processor in the segment, Animalytix has chosen to supplement its primary data services infrastructure located in Valley Forge, PA, with the new site hosted by Cosentry's colocation services. The new platform is intended to reduce the risk of network failure by providing a fully redundant infrastructure as well as data security and the necessary bandwidth to facilitate the company's data processing requirements.

"For a technology-based company like Animalytix, selection of the right data center is a critical decision. Given the significance of the Kansas City area to our business and the animal health industry, we wanted to establish a key part of our technology infrastructure in the Corridor and continue our strong commitment to the region," said Chris Ragland, CEO, Animalytix.

The KC Animal Health Corridor extends from Manhattan and Emporia, Kansas to St. Joseph and Columbia, Missouri and is home to more than 300 animal health companies, representing the largest industry concentration in the world.

"We are proud to help Animalytix establish their presence in the Corridor in 2012, and we are excited to witness their continued growth and success," said Kimberly Young, vice president of bioscience development for the Kansas City Area Development Council and the KC Animal Health Corridor.

Cosentry has six secure, high-performance data centers throughout the region.  From Lenexa, KS to Sioux Falls, SD, the company continues to be the preferred provider of resilient and versatile IT solutions.

"In addition to the extensive animal health knowledge and expertise in the KC area, with Cosentry, we are able to leverage expert data center knowledge and get world-class reliability and security from a strong Midwest partner," adds Bryan Gathagan, CTO, Animalytix.

"Animalytix provides important data-derived services their clients use for strategic business decision making," said Mike Polcyn, CFO, Cosentry. "As they expand these valuable services, Cosentry will continue helping Animalytix reduce IT costs and risks as well as provide the redundant infrastructure, security and bandwidth needed to process this valuable information."
