(The Hosting News) – The Planet, the global hosting leader, today announced that Dallas Data Center, a provider of Colo By The U, is the company’s newest referral partner, and joins its growing portfolio of referral agents within the Partner Plus program. Through the partnership, The Planet provides colocation services from its wholly owned Plano, Texas, D7 data center to Dallas Data Center customers who require less than a full server cabinet.
Dallas Data Center specializes in colocation, managed hosting, virtualization, disaster recovery and cloud computing. Its Colo By The U line of business is flexible and scalable, and allows customers to house their equipment in a secure data center without minimum cabinet-size constraints. Customers can start small and expand their technology footprint as they grow, while paying only for the cabinet space required.
“Many businesses want to manage their own IT environments, and recognize that office closets or servers under desks are no place for critical company data,” said Tim Freeze, CEO of Dallas Data Center. “Colo By The U caters to customers who are tech-savvy enough to manage their own servers, but may not have enough hardware to fill an entire cabinet. We chose The Planet as our partner to deliver our services, and our customers reap the benefits of a world-class data center that provides 100 percent uptime and a robust network, all within a cost-effective model.”
“Company data, from customer and financial information to strategic databases, is the lifeblood of any business,” said Drew Jenkins, channel sales manager for The Planet. “As more companies worry about how to secure that data, they look to providers like The Planet that offer data centers with 24/7 protection and redundant power. By partnering with Dallas Data Center, we’re able to offer these benefits to an even broader set of customers.”
