FORTRUST teams up with University of Colorado’s athletics program as their official data center and colocation services provider

University of Colorado Athletics has selected FORTRUST, Colorado's only Tier III Gold certified data center, as their official data center and colocation services provider, FORTRUST announced today.

A nationally recognized and prominent collegiate athletics program, CU provides a high quality and comprehensive student-athlete experience.  The program sponsors 17 varsity teams and in their history, the Colorado Buffaloes have collected an impressive 28 national championships.

"We at FORTRUST value the discipline and teamwork that athletics programs instill in their student athletes," states Josh Moody, SVP of Sales and Marketing at FORTRUST. "Which is why we are very pleased to support CU Athletics as their official data center and colocation services provider."
