CASE STUDY

CenturyLink Improves Cost and Efficiency for Publishing Software Pioneer, Quark

Quark Software Inc. needed to consolidate their global voice and data infrastructure and services with one provider in order to grow and thrive. CenturyLink partnered with them to design a custom solution of colocation, data center and managed services to bolster innovation and reduce costs.

One Data and Voice Vendor with a Global Footprint

Challenge
Like many IT organizations, Quark’s needed to evolve with a growing global business. At Quark, their customer-facing services are just as dependent on IT as their internal operations are and downtime is unacceptable. They needed to consolidate their worldwide data and voice infrastructure and managed services with one provider that could support locations in the US, India and Europe.

Solution
CenturyLink’s global colocation presence made it possible for Quark to combine all of its outsourced voice and data networks with one vendor. Using data centers around the world connected by CenturyLink IQ MPLS improved network performance, reduced outages and increased overall reliability for the whole enterprise and its customers. Ultimately, this reduced costs for Quark and gave them more flexibility to rapidly scale their operations.
