In business, redundancy is generally synonymous with waste — with one notable exception.
“Most businesses can’t afford redundant servers,” said Christopher Furey, founder and CEO of Virtual Density L.L.C., a managed IT services and cloud computing firm. “We can’t afford not to offer redundant servers.”
This spring, Virtual Density celebrates its five-year anniversary and marks one year since moving from the Danbury-Brookfield border to the heart of downtown Danbury.
Now that he’s here, Furey, a 30-year veteran of IT management, is intent on pitching the downtown as a location ripe for business activity.
“When I moved to Danbury, I really made a commitment to this city,” Furey said. “I love it here. … Downtown Danbury might have a bad reputation, but it’s only a reputation.”
The move has been a boon for business and helped Virtual Density to stay online during Hurricane Sandy and the ensuing winter storms, said Furey, who after two relocations in five years is sold on downtown Danbury.
“For anyone looking for office space, why wouldn’t you want the visibility a downtown offers?” Furey said. “What we need to let folks know is, while they can be in an office building somewhere, they could also be part of the community.”
