Data Centers

We are proudly now Deft, a Summit company!


IT infrastructure is what we do, what we know, and what we love.

Together, we can deliver on the promise of technology.


You can reach our engineers 24/7/365 via chat, phone, email, or the customer portal. We’ll get back to you within 15 minutes, guaranteed.


We don’t just run the local network for you, we run the ISP behind it. That gives us the power to keep things running smoothly by reacting when they don’t.


We can competently support your entire IT environment, from traditional servers and networking gear to disaster recovery and the cloud.


We provide 100% uptime SLAs on network and power, so we literally won’t let you or your customers down.


Deft has 24+ years of experience managing complex IT infrastructures — and it shows.


We provide fully managed cloud and data center migrations. You can move yourself in, or our team will handle the entire migration for you.


Redundancy is provided at no extra cost. Critical power, environmentals, and network connectivity are delivered in fully redundant configurations by default.


We’re certified in the tech we use every day. Deft is a certified partner with VMware, Equinix, Digital Realty Trust, Zerto, Veeam, Dell, Intel, NVIDIA, Cloudian, and more.

“I particularly appreciate your patience in explaining what are probably mundane things in your world without ever once talking down to me. This has actually been a fun and educational experience.”

“When the guy who helped design the networks for YouTube and PayPal says Deft’s data centers and IP backbone are the most impressive he’s ever seen, I trust him implicitly.”

“We love our friends at Deft. Been working with them for some 14 years now? Similar size to 37signals. The antithesis of big tech. Good service is its own marketing!”

“Having the flexibility to use Deft’s resources to manage our network gives us the perfect hybrid solution. It allows us to focus on what we know best and rely on Deft for the rest.”
