Modern Data Center

At EchoStor, our mission is to deliver innovative IT solutions that empower businesses to thrive in an ever-evolving digital landscape. We’re proud to share a recent two-part interview by Channel Insider, featuring our partnership with the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVM). These interviews provide a glimpse into our journey, values, and future vision, highlighting the strong bond we’ve built with UVM over more than a decade.

Part 1: EchoStor and UVM – A Decade of Partnership

The first part of the interview delves into our long-standing relationship with UVM Medical Center. For over ten years, we’ve had the privilege of supporting their IT infrastructure, working closely with CC Larner, the Director of Compute, Database, and Desktop Engineering Services. CC’s role is vital, directly connecting the hospital’s IT systems to the patient care provided by UVM’s dedicated medical staff.

One of the most compelling stories shared in this segment is from 2020, when UVM faced a severe cyber attack. In a moment of crisis, our CEO, Mike Johnson, didn’t hesitate to jump into action. Despite being dressed for a Halloween party, Mike drove fresh servers across two states to ensure UVM’s operations could continue uninterrupted. This story is a testament to EchoStor’s unwavering commitment to our clients, reflecting our core values of reliability and dedication.

Part 2: Trust and Innovation for the Future

In the second part of the series, the focus shifts to the trust we’ve built with our clients over the years and our vision for the future. EchoStor CEO Mike Johnson and Enterprise Account Manager Caleb Morgan discuss how fostering long-term relationships is at the heart of our business model. CC Larner shares her perspective on this trust, expressing confidence in reaching out to us without concerns about being charged for every interaction. This level of trust is what makes our partnership with UVM so special.

Mike Johnson, who became CEO at the end of 2023, shares exciting insights into EchoStor’s recent growth and our plans to sustain this momentum. Despite his leadership responsibilities, Mike remains closely connected with UVM, embodying our customer-first approach. This close-knit relationship is a cornerstone of EchoStor’s success and a driving force behind our innovative solutions.


The two-part interview with Channel Insider provides a unique opportunity to see EchoStor’s journey through the eyes of our valued partner, UVM Medical Center. We’re proud of the trust and collaboration we’ve built with CC Larner and her team, and we’re excited about the future of this partnership.

We invite you to watch both parts of the interview to gain a deeper understanding of EchoStor’s commitment to excellence and innovation. Stay tuned for more stories and insights as we continue to lead the way in the tech industry.
