Quest’s HABC and the Quest Cloud Platform®:

When your cloud environment needs high availability

What if you could reduce your operations and infrastructure costs while hosting your data and apps on-premises and/or in a public cloud, provide instant OS patches and upgrades with no downtime, create and deliver software faster, perform zero-downtime deployments, and shorten software release times?

And what if you could do all that out of a Tier 3 High Availability Business Center (HABC) in an environmentally stable location above flood plains, clear of mudslides and forest fires, and well inland from extreme weather?

Quest Cloud Platform® + an HABC

Quest’s SSAE 18 SOC Type 1, 2, & 3-compliant Roseville High Availability Business Center is the perfect environment for the Quest Cloud Platform® that has been shown in an independent study to decrease time-to-production, boost developer productivity by 81%, and deliver a return on investment of 135%.*

What Quest does to set the Roseville HABC apart

Quest’s 122,000-square-foot Roseville High Availability Business Center is one of many Quest Global Service Delivery Centers and has been designed to be highly customizable so you can get the most out of its five key capabilities:
