Host.net Celebrates 1,000 Days of vPDC Uptime
BOCA RATON, FL (July 17, 2012) – Less than three years ago, Florida-based Host.net created Virtual Private Data Center (vPDC) services to help businesses by eliminating the capital expense and management of physical servers to manage their computing and storage needs at a higher level of reliability than typical budgets would provide. This week, Host.net marks their thousandth day of continuous uptime, providing their enterprise clients with uninterrupted access to their mission critical applications.
“Our vPDCs are at the core of our clients’ needs and the basis of our growth,” said Host.net CEO Jeffrey Davis. “The continuous uptime proves the reliability of our advanced, multimillion-dollar vPDC platform, which enables businesses to create their own private clouds in a secure and efficient way, meeting the growing demand to outsource enterprise data services.”
Host.net’s vPDCs enable businesses to migrate their data center operations to a private, enterprise virtual platform to decrease their physical server needs, eliminate in-house maintenance responsibilities, and add security features including redundancy for disaster recovery. Using the latest VMware enterprise server virtualization platform and the most robust enterprise SAN solution available, the vPDCs provide access to terabytes of scalable storage, increased performance over standard SAN solutions, geographically diverse SSAE 16 SOC 2 certified data center hosting, and 24×7 system and security monitoring—all on the Host.net multinational layer 2 network.
“A thousand days of vPDC is just one milestone in many, satisfying our clients and growing our services,” adds Davis, citing Host.net’s 15 years of experience creating managed services solutions including colocation and now private enterprise virtual computing. Many clients are creating a hybrid environment leveraging both services.. “The significance of this achievement is the uninterrupted, high levels of protection, availability and functionality for our clients.”
Host.net’s vPDC architecture is a custom-built, multi-million-dollar environment engineered with best-of-breed hardware and software from Cisco, DataCore, Dell, StillSecure and VMWare, which is designed to ensure the security, integrity and availability of vital data.
