Host.net Launches 7,000 sq. ft. of Colocation Space
By Tabitha Naylor
Host.net (News - Alert), a leading provider of managed infrastructure services, announced the launch of its fourth colocation center at its Boca Raton campus. Built to meet the increased security, compliance and data requirements of the company’s diverse, regulated, professional services clients, the phase IV expansion is a physical storage and redundancy facility.
“The addition of phase IV on our Boca Raton campus was driven by the ravenous demand for high-end colocation. Specifically, larger clients are demanding the security and flexibility of a private cage,” said Lenny Chesal, chief marketing officer and VP of Strategic Sales at Host.net.
In order to support mission-critical applications, Host.net offers safe, secure and conveniently located facilities. Since Host.net employees maintain facilities around the clock, choosing colocation will eliminate worries about infrastructure.
Offering a “world-class,” enterprise-level, safe and secure data center environment with redundant and robust network connections, Host.net colocation solutions will allow companies to place mission-critical infrastructure including servers, VoIP switches, and storage devices in its facility.
To protect data and applications, Host.net offers multiple data centers, although many clients are choosing a hybrid solution of colocation and cloud services or moving completely to a virtual private data center (vPDC).
Chesal adds that the rapid growth of the company’s managed services lines of business is continually fuelled by healthcare, financial, manufacturing and professional services clients with compliance requirements. Nonetheless, more and more clients, in order to create hybrid environments, leverage Host.net’s vPDC.
In fact, it’s predicted that 35 billion terabytes of data will be stored in the cloud by 2020.
Located at 3500 NW Boca Raton Blvd., Host.net Boca Raton phase IV is situated in the 800 Building, a concrete/CBS Twin (News - Alert)-T structure which adds 7,000 square feet of colocation space along with multiple connectivity options and sophisticated fire suppression, safety and security features.
