Operating with Integrity
A Message from Nancy
For more than 17 years, ViaWest has grown significantly by offering the highest-quality data center and cloud services in the industry. We built our business model on operating with honesty, integrity and transparency, and by putting the needs of our clients first. The rest, we believed, would take care of itself. And it has. Focusing on those core values has helped ViaWest attract a growing client base with a 90-percent contract renewal rate.
At ViaWest, we believe competition is important to the growth of our own business, and that our competitors inspire and challenge us to offer our clients the very best IT services possible. But we also believe that competition must be consistent with the highest ethical and legal principles. We live that philosophy, and expect our competitors to as well.
ViaWest’s relationship with our clients is the most important thing to us. We go to great lengths to provide them with a reliable, flexible and efficient experience. Our 2,000 clients, 30 data centers in nine markets, and numerous industry awards speak to those core client values. We look forward to continuing to serve our clients with integrity and transparency.

Client Focused From the Beginning
A Brief History of ViaWest
ViaWest was started in 1999 by co-founders Nancy Phillips and Roy Dimoff, with the goal of transforming IT. By 2010, ViaWest had a growing managed services portfolio and a fleet of 16 data center and colocation sites. Over the next four years, ViaWest established itself as a leader in the industry and continued to add additional advanced data center facilities.
In 2014, ViaWest was acquired by Shaw Communications Inc., the leading pure-play connectivity provider in Canada. The acquisition provided the lift to enable continued growth. In 2015, ViaWest broke ground on a new data center in Calgary. In the same year ViaWest expanded its solutions offering through the acquisitions of AppliedTrust and INetU. These companies enabled ViaWest to deliver additional complementary capabilities.
On June 13, 2017, ViaWest announced an agreement to combine with Peak 10, a national IT infrastructure provider and portfolio company of GI Partners. The increased scale and broad geographic coverage will enable the combined company to serve its clients across an enhanced platform of products and capabilities.
