“It seems like forever, in fact nearly 14 years, since APSU started providing co-location and a fully managed service with technical support for our iSeries systems. I can say that the duration of our contractual relationship is testimony to the excellent service we receive from APSU. I find that as far as the iSeries is concerned, APSU provides the complete service and manages it very well.”
