Centri Logic Press Release

  1. 1. Media Contacts: Tracy Sutherland, CentriLogic Inc., 416.219.0730, tracy.sutherland@centrilogic.com David M. Grome, Eric Mower and Associates, 585.389.1843, dgrome@mower.com CENTRILOGIC PARTNERS WITH COOKIE JAR ENTERTAINMENT TO PROVIDE NETWORK SUPPORT ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 10, 2008 – When user traffic goes up, the server goes down—or so seems to be the pattern for online role playing game sites. CentriLogic and Cookie Jar Entertainment aim to improve the user experience with a new partnership and a plan to increase network capacity and reliability. CentriLogic, an outsourced IT and datacenter provider, will offer Cookie Jar Entertainment back-up server support for its online gaming websites. The key behind CentriLogic’s solution is server redundancy. Server redundancy is a set of back-up servers. Memory can be re-routed to a new server at the CentriLogic facility, and Cookie Jar’s gamers can continue to play. “We have recently expanded our products by introducing massive multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPGs). The younger generation is very computer-saavy,” said Kenneth Locker, senior vice president of digital media, Cookie Jar Entertainment. “In addition to blogs, photos, and video streams, these online games provide our viewers with another way to enjoy their favorite television shows.” Cookie Jar Entertainment, home to celebrated children’s brands such as “The Doodlebops” and “Caillou,” targets family audiences with fun, intellectually stimulating “edutainment.” “We’ve created an environment for Cookie Jar that is essentially redundant in every aspect of the network,” CentriLogic President and CEO Robert Offley said. “It can double capacity in seconds. CentriLogic’s technology will help to mitigate the risk of a system shutdown.” CentriLogic provides network hosting, managed IT infrastructure and disaster recovery services to businesses seeking an outsourced remedy for their mission critical information. The company launched its tier-1 headquarters in Rochester in the fall of 2007.
