​​As life-long residents of NE Ohio, we understand the core values of hard-work, professionalism and loyalty to not only our client partners, but also our excellent employees. Our "difference" is that we want to be your local partner, not just a faceless provider, and we have proven these values to thousands of clients over our 15+ year existence.

To earn that right, Datacore was founded on, and continues under, three core principles.

  • Reduce client risk and exposure

  • Guarantee 99% uptime to clients

  • Operate a highly ethical company that contributes to the surrounding community


Technology Changes Fast But Core Values Always Stay The Same

As a veteran owned company, Datacore is committed to keeping all operations U.S. based, therefore Datacore has built a world class Help Desk where all employees are trained and certified on Linux, Mac, Microsoft, VMWARE, and Citrix, as well as most smart phone operating systems with every feature from remote access and chat to online video conference support.

All engineers and in house technical staff are Datacore employees or owners. Datacore owns and operates a research and design/manufacturing center in Cleveland where all BDR units are assembled and supported. This ensures Datacore has full control over all operations concerning the design, implementation and support of all our services.

With full control over solutions and products, Datacore has grown from a regional company to an international company with a strong global presence. Datacore’s rapid growth is reflected by its 2011 Weatherhead 100 award. With clients from a dozen countries and throughout the U.S., Datacore is positioned to be a world class leader in Business Continuity.

"Willoway Nurseries has been partnered with Datacore for over seven years. The service and support provided by Datacore is such that we won’t even allow other IT vendors to make a pitch; not even when they promise lower rates. That’s the value of trust. We’ve never had a backup fail to restore, they’ve always been able to solve the most troubling tech issues, their reports help me find potential issues before they become problems, and the advice they give is invaluable. I’m a better IT professional just from working with them all this time."

"We engaged with Datacore over 8 years ago when they helped us navigate an IT disaster and they have been our IT provider ever since. They have helped us navigate many complicated transitions (data migrations, companywide hardware upgrades) as well as handled the day to day questions of staff with knowledge and care. We could not ask for a better support team! Thank you to Steve, Phil, Josh, Tresa, Mike, Brian and everyone at Datacore for all your help throughout the years!!"
