West Palm Beach, Florida, UNITED STATES

RENO, Nev., April 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Encompass Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets:ECMH), www.encompassholdings.com, reported today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Quadrant Data Systems Inc. (QDS-I), www.qds-i.com, has completed its move to their new data center facility located at 100 Wood Hollow Drive, Novato, California.

Quadrant has now completed the migration of its data center to an improved bimodal network infrastructure utilizing licensed microwave in conjunction with terrestrial copper and fiber connections. This includes the installation of a new backbone connection using facilities managed by TelX at 200 Paul Street in San Francisco.

"This is where our connections to Tier One providers like XO and Cogent take place, so it is vital that the facility be managed by a reliable and competent vendor. We are very impressed by the rapid service provided by TelX and look forward to a long and stable relationship," said Kirk Hurford, Quadrant's COO. Mr. Hurford also noted, "In addition to the current network infrastructure, an additional Opt-E-MAN fiber optic circuit is scheduled to be installed by the first week in May. With this final piece in place, we will have the scalable bandwidth and N+2 redundancy necessary to meet the long term requirements and expectations of our clients."

Joseph Berardi, Quadrant CEO, commented, "In addition to having a more modern facility, we are working with the building management to provide a synergistic solution so that new tenants can have a built-in connection to the secure data center. The 3 story, 128,000sq ft building is already wired for connections to the data center providing building tenants with a direct connection to their servers as well as the internet."

Scott Webber, CEO of Encompass, commented, "Now that Quadrant has settled into their new facility, Mr. Berardi projects significant progress on the company's initiative to expand into the Cloud Computing arena. We couldn't be more pleased with the competence and dedication the Quadrant management and staff have shown in meeting completion deadlines and customer care during the migration to the new center. We expect to make significant announcements over the next few weeks."
