As summer slowly transitions into the fall season, there was no such slow-down with the VPLS team this past August!

Come see why August was a such a HOT month for the VPLS team by checking out our monthly recap…
VPLS Recognizes Greatness in Character: July 2018 Employee of the Month Kate Bisaillon!
VPLS sincerely appreciates a team member who takes the initiative to lend a helping hand around the office without being asked. This is why Executive Assistant Kate was named Employee of the Month for July 2018. Kate plays an important part in the day to day operations at VPLS Solutions. She handles all forms of communications with utmost professionalism in addition to ensuring all shipments are sent and received in a timely manner. She is Co-Founder John Minnix’s right hand and she steps in to take care of his correspondence when he’s not available. Congratulations Kate! Your award is well-deserved!
VPLS Upgrades East Coast Data Center: The Second Coming of Virginia Data Center!
A major project at VPLS calls for the entire team to be unified as one! Currently, VPLS is refurbishing the data center (IAD2) located in Ashburn, Virginia, in order to expand company presence on the East Coast as well as to better cater to data center users by providing additional services including Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), cloud hosting, along with increased bandwidth and storage. To ensure a smooth execution during this renovation, every team involved, internally and externally, is in constant communication with one another (while fulfilling their own assigned tasks) to help move the project forward as a whole. The team spends numerous hours configuring, testing, modifying and retesting the necessary equipment to properly prepare for the project. Being the reliable and supportive team that VPLS stands for, every single team member is committed until completion, turning this project into an opportunity to actively put the company’s core values into practice.
