Flexential’s DNA has deep roots in the southeast and the west. For two decades, Peak 10 and ViaWest have helped data-intensive organizations transform IT from a cost center to an asset that helps achieve innovation, improve speed to market and lower risk. We joined forces in August 2017, and rebranded as Flexential in January 2018.

Our company is the product of a lot of hard work, good luck and a dash of serendipity. Peak 10 and ViaWest were by no means destined to wind up together, but our two companies were on parallel journeys. At the core of both company identities was a deep commitment to people and a dedication to delivering market-leading products and services with a human touch. Both grew steadily for nearly two decades while remaining true to the values that made them unique.
