What our customers are saying:

  •  

    We visited Savvis’ [CenturyLink's] data center and the operations center, and sat down with the people who would be answering our calls, reviewed their processes, analysed their escalation procedures, and witnessed how they troubleshoot problems. We couldn’t have been more thorough – or more satisfied. Savvis [CenturyLink] is everything a top-tier managed service provider should be.

    One of Savvis’ [CenturyLink's] many strengths was its rich portfolio of managed services that spanned hosting, network and security functionality. I don’t think there’s anything Savvis [CenturyLink] offers that we don’t use.
