I am thrilled to announce that we will have a third data center opened and ready for business sometime in May 2012. Currently, our two data centers are located in the Chicagoland area but that is about to change! It looks like our fearless mascot, Poindexter is heading west.
The newest data center will be in Phoenix, Arizona. This hits close to home for me, as I graduated from Arizona State University. With ideal weather and cost-effective energy, the Valley of the Sun has become a hotbed for data centers. One of the most unique features about this new addition is that it is a modular data center. The easiest way to describe this new technology is it is essentially a data center within a data center.Â This new type of technology is extremely cost-efficient, and makes it very easy to scale up the size of the operation.
To celebrate this opening, we are happy to announce that we are going to allow for some pre-sale opportunities. You get a brand-new hardware in a brand-new data center! But wait, thereâ€™s more! You also get:Â Free Double RAM (2x default),Â Free Double Bandwidth (20TB), and 10% off for 6 months.The current Windows offer can be combined with this, too.
The pre-sale begins at 12 PM on April 4th and is available to existing customers and then new customers, before the data center scheduled is go live on May 1st, 2012. All pre-sold servers will be deployed on opening-day and will be available for use same day.
The Phoenix data center features:
- SSAE 16 Type 2 Certification
- Certified Tier-3 Facility (N+2)
- Highly Automated Architecture
- 10Gbps connectivity to server cabinets
- Public & Private network
- Connectivity to Chicago data centers
We are thrilled about this expansion and know that moves just like this one are going to help our continued success. We also know that without our nearly 4500 clients would be heading to the dessert for home of the reason!
