McKINNEY, Texas – The McKinney Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) announced technology company Vazata has moved their corporate headquarters to Adriatica Village in McKinney. Vazata provides cloud infrastructure, managed hosting and colocation services. The move brings more than 30 jobs to the city.

“We are thrilled to make McKinney our new home. We fell in love with the unique architecture of Adriatica, there’s nothing in the metroplex that compares to it. Even though the outside of our building has an Old World feel, we are a fully modern tech company on the inside,” said Lance Black, president of Vazata. “We are excited to be part of the city’s rapid growth and look forward to contributing to the community.”

MEDC offered a job creation incentive to Vazata that is dependent upon the number of employees hired in the first year.

“We are excited to welcome Vazata to McKinney. They bring high-quality jobs in a technology-focused industry, and that’s one of the many sectors MEDC strives to attract to our community,” said Chad Walker, Director of Business Development for MEDC.

Vazata was founded in 2000. The company also manages data center locations in Dallas and Virginia.
