New Datacenter Will Provide Multiple Layers of Connectivity, Redundancy, and Security for Clients in Late August — Corporate Office Space Also Part of Project.
DENVER, CO, July 01, 2009 – Hosting.com, the first name in managed hosting and colocation solutions, today announced that it is expanding by opening a 30,000 square foot datacenter and 13,000 square foot corporate complex in the Denver metro area in late August. Company owners Art Zeile and Joel Daly have operated three successful high-tech firms, all headquartered in Denver, including InFlow, Inc., sold to Sungard in 2005.
The demand for secure, reliable colocation space in Denver continues to outpace availability. Art Zeile, Hosting.com CEO, commented, "We are excited to serve a very large need in Denver with this new datacenter. Colocation space with our high level of service and support is absent from downtown.” He continued, "We will grow aggressively over the next 24 months through a national platform of managed and secure services; we are excited that Denver is at the center of our growth.”
Hosting.com will occupy a historic Ford Model T factory retrofitted to industry-leading specifications for the expansion. The location takes advantage of a strong network topology, multiple power grids, and close proximity to fully redundant fiber feeds from Tier 1 providers. The datacenter will incorporate Hosting.com Smart Design Standards and provide up to 10 Gb/sec of redundant connectivity for bandwidth routing optimization as well as 200 watts/sq ft of power and cooling. It will be the only datacenter of its kind in downtown Denver.
In addition to hosting and colocation services, the new facility will support Hosting.com’s new cloud hosting platforms, Cloud Enterprise and Cloud Private. Hosting.com currently operates SAS 70 Type II certified datacenters in Irvine, CA; Louisville, KY; Newark, DE; and San Francisco, CA. Hosting.com’s cloud and virtualization solutions coupled with a geographically dispersed datacenter network allows their clients to take full advantage of their services for redundancy, fault tolerance, and disaster recovery solutions for their Web enabled businesses and technology infrastructure.
Joel Daly, Hosting.com COO, noted, "By operating five datacenters from coast to coast, we provide our clients with unparalleled solution and service options. Our business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) enhancements will provide clients with cost-effective means to achieve and test true disaster recovery and fault tolerance.”
