Chicago, Illinois – (The Hosting News) – April 16, 2009 – Provider of Managed Dedicated, Managed Hybrid and Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting solutions, WiredTree, has completed several strategic upgrades to its network infrastructure, including the addition of three new IP transit providers and new network hardware.
Zac Cogswell, president of WiredTree remarked, ”Our engineers began the planning process for these infrastructure upgrades in June 2008, and we have spent the last six months testing and deploying the upgrades in our facility. All WiredTree customers will benefit from improved performance, reduced pricing, and greater overall scalability in meeting their global data transit needs. This is an important milestone for our company.”
With the upgrades, WiredTree now has five tier-1 network backbone providers. Housed in downtown Chicago’s preeminent 427 LaSalle private data facility, WiredTree’s network infrastructure now features gigabit ports on routers, switches, and dedicated servers. Managed Dedicated Server customers also now benefit from 1000Mbps port upgrades to WiredTree’s public network.
WiredTree has also added connectivity to three new backbone providers for IP transit, including Sprint, NTT, and Level(3). Alongside existing providers Savvis and Cogent, the new connectivity will boost transit speeds and offer reduced latency to the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, and the Middle East. In addition, the three new providers increase domestic redundancy and boost overall network throughput.
The added network capacity has enabled WiredTree to reduce customer pricing to reflect its changed cost structure. Customers can now take advantage of less-expensive unmetered transit options and reduced data transfer overage costs. Specific pricing information can be obtained from WiredTree.
Formed in June 2006 to set a new standard for managed hosting, WiredTree provides a superior managed hosting environment through customer service, innovative network design, a unique suite of services, and the latest technological advances in server hardware. WiredTree designed a network that leverages two logically separated networks – a public Internet network and a private internal network. This modern ”network-within-a-network”design allows the company to securely provide a wide range of value-added services for business of all sizes.
