Host.net Launches New Colocation Center, adding 7,000 square feet of high-density enterprise class data center
BOCA RATON, FL (October 2, 2012) – Host.net, a leading provider of managed infrastructure services, announces the launch of its fourth colocation center at its Boca Raton campus. The phase IV expansion is a physical storage and redundancy facility built to meet the increased security, compliance and data requirements of the company’s diverse, regulated, professional services clients.
“The addition of phase IV on our Boca Raton campus was driven by the ravenous demand for high-end colocation,” says Lenny Chesal, Chief Marketing Officer and Vice President of Strategic Sales at Host.net. “Specifically, larger clients are demanding the security and flexibility of a private cage.”
Host.net offers safe, secure and conveniently located facilities to support mission-critical applications. Choosing colocation eliminates any worries about infrastructure as Host.net employees maintain facilities around the clock. Host.net colocation solutions offer a “World-Class”, enterprise-level, safe and secure data center environment with redundant and robust network connections for companies to place mission-critical infrastructure including servers, VoIP switches, and storage devices. Host.net has multiple data centers available to protect data and applications, although many clients are choosing a hybrid solution of colocation and cloud services or moving completely to the virtual private data center (vPDC). The combination along with Host.net’s other managed services enables the unique ability to provide clients with solutions not available from other providers.
“Healthcare, financial, manufacturing, and professional services clients with compliance requirements continue to fuel the rapid growth of our managed services lines of business,” adds Mr. Chesal. “Additionally, more and more of our clients are leveraging our enterprise, private cloud solution or vPDC, to create hybrid environments. We expect this growth to continue and increase with an expected 35 billion terabytes of data to be stored in the cloud by 2020.”
Host.net Boca Raton phase IV is located at 3500 NW Boca Raton Blvd., in the 800 Building, a concrete/CBS Twin-T structure, adds 7,000 square feet of colocation space, with multiple connectivity options and sophisticated fire suppression, safety and security features. For full specs, see attached.
