Connectria Hosting Services

Connectria was formed more than 20 years ago as an infrastructure consulting firm and moved into hosting two years later in 1998, signing up Deutsche Bank as its first client followed by IBM. The company then expanded its hosting services and dropped the consulting side of the business in 2005 to concentrate solely on hosting.

Connectria became the first company to deliver HIPAA-compliant cloud hosting in 2007, started providing its HIPAA compliant solution on AWS in 2014, followed by its HIPAA-compliant Azure solution in 2016. Today, the company is a recognized leader in HIPAA-compliant clouds and provides more than 1,000 HIPAA-compliant environments to hospitals, clinics, physician and dental practices, payers, ISVs, EMR companies, and billings firms.

Connectria offers managed HIPAA- and HITECH Act-compliant public and private cloud hosting solutions in addition to on-premises solutions, with all appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI. The company’s data centers and hosting services undergo annual third-party audits to confirm compliance with HIPAA/HITECH, and are re-tested each year to ensure continued compliance with SOC 2, ISO and PCI.

The company has created a highly experienced team of support staff who understand the hosting components that can be used by HIPAA-covered entities and those that can’t, with its staff having extensive experience of how those components must be implemented to ensure compliance.

The company’s operates enterprise-class data centers in St. Louis, Missouri, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Dallas and all have successfully completed SOC1 type II audits and have demonstrated compliance with SSAE 18 auditing standards.

Connectria works closely with major tech companies and is a member of the AWS partner network, is an IBM Silver Business Partner, Citrix Partner Service Provider, VMWare Partner, Microsoft Gold Partner, and a Redhat Premier Business Partner.

In addition to providing managed hosting services, Connectria offers a range of managed services including application support and development, remote monitoring, disaster recovery, and cloud management.

HIPAA-Compliant Hosting Services

Connectria offers multiple hosting solutions for healthcare organizations and their business associates, together with a range of associated services.

The company is happy to enter into business associate agreements with HIPAA-covered entities and their business associates and will also help customers obtain signed business associate agreements from Microsoft, Google, and AWS if customers need to house workloads in a public or hyperscale cloud.

Private Hosted Clouds

Connectria offers high-performance dedicated cloud-based resources in SOC 2 certified data centers. For ease of migration and to minimize disruption, Connectria can host X86 workloads on VMware vSphere or IBM i and IBM AIX hardware.

HIPAA-Compliant Public Clouds

Connectria supports AWS, Azure, and the Google Cloud platform and provides assistance with configuration to ensure compliance with HIPAA and the HITECH Act. Connectria engineers will first configure the platform to ensure compliance prior to the migration of workloads and will continue to provide assistance with compliance through continuous monitoring, as well as optimizing public clouds for performance and cost.

Remote Management

Connectria also offers support for legacy, on-premises workloads. Those environments will be remotely monitored 24/7/365 to check for compliance issues, with ongoing assistance available covering system administration and IT security.


Connectria’s HyperCare service provides healthcare IT environments with the extra care necessary to ensure continued security, reliability, and performance. Customers also benefit from Connectria’s TriA Cloud Management platform which provides full visibility into all cloud environments through a single management console. The platform allows customers and support staff to continuously monitor performance to get the best ROI.

The TriA Cloud Management platform is provided as standard with all HIPAA/HITECH compliance packs to help healthcare customers achieve their compliance objectives. Connectria’s compliance experts are also on hand to help customers conduct their own internal HIPAA compliance assessments and will also be on hand to assist if customers are selected for an official compliance audit by OCR or state attorneys general.
