David Weekley Homes 

  • Industry: Construction and Real Estate
  • Solutions: Hybrid Solution, LightEdge Cloud Recovery, Managed Backup

David Weekley Homes is the largest privately-owned home builder in America. Since it was founded in Houston, Texas in 1976, the company has expanded to operate in 20 markets across the US, offering everything from custom designs for single lot builds to masterplanned communities. David Weekley Homes was the first builder in the US to be awarded the Triple Crown of American Home Building, an honor which includes “America’s Best Builder”, “National Housing Quality Award”, and two-time recipient of the “National Builder of the Year” honor.

David Weekley Homes, based in hurricane-prone Houston, faced cost-inefficiencies from underutilized managed solutions and the threat of potential disasters causing downtime. Seeking enhanced IT capabilities, they aimed to strike a balance between control, expertise, and cost-effectiveness. 

To address these challenges, David Weekley Homes chose LightEdge’s unique blend of colocation and cloud services, featuring managed storage and backups. Unlike their previous provider, LightEdge offered cooperative collaboration, 24/7 support, and expertise. 

“The flexibility LightEdge offers is unparalleled. Able to serve as our remote hands for routine maintenance and one-off occurrences, we have developed a relationship where LightEdge serves as an extension of our IT department.”
