Supporting Small Businesses Across America
DSX DATA’s roots go back to 2009 when the founders were running a 20,000 sq. ft. data center and thinking they were only solving the hardware portion of the problem. Today, DSX DATA has evolved into the founders’ vision of being able to help small and medium businesses be more successful and productive by delivering CTO-level advice, technical solutions that are business-based, highly dependable, secure data center services, and high quality, cost-effective VoIP phone systems.
As a client of DSX DATA, you will have direct access to this valuable expertise, as well as the expert team of business analysts, software, communications, network and server specialists they have assembled.
Joseph P. Berardi, Co-Founder and CEO
Joe combines well-honed management skills with broad experience from his roles in high tech and communications. He has transformed many new technologies into useful applied products and is an expert in the deployment and implementation of technology. Applying that background, Joe developed our business model, product strategy and product lines.
Prior to founding DSX DATA, he was CEO and CTO of several companies in the broadcast television industry where he played a major role in moving the industry forward by transitioning from tape-based systems to IT-based systems for production, transmission, and archival storage. He also managed the design, buildout and launch of the flagship station and national network headquarters for Azteca America, the U.S. branch of the Mexican television powerhouse, TV Azteca.
Kirk Hurford, Co-founder and CTO
Kirk’s first love is software development. He is an architect and developer with many commercial software products to his credit. But his roots actually come from hardware manufacturing and so he never loses touch with the current trends and best practices for the equipment side. This gives him the ability to quickly isolate issues in a crisis as well as to see long terms trends which will have a critical impact on business planning. Kirk developed DSXDATA’s data center from the ground up and our Virtual Dataspace managed server concept. A seasoned business and technology veteran, he has a deep understanding of the ever-increasing demands of business operations, the complexity of program development and the need for continuous improvement.
Before founding DSX DATA, he served as CEO and CTO of a number of companies and worked with the National Security Agency and the Department of the Navy to do cross-domain security research and consulting.
