Las Vegas, Nevada – (The Hosting News) – January 28, 2008 –
Shared, reseller, colocated, dedicated and VPS hosting solutions firm, ServerPoint, has added a new gigabit uplink from XO Communications, providing additional network redundancy and capacity for its Las Vegas, Nevada data center facility.
Erik Johnson, CTO of ServerPoint noted, ”XO has a very large network that peers with every other major provider, in addition to having the largest IP capacity in Las Vegas. Having worked with XO communications previously, we are confident our customers will benefit from the high quality network access they provide.”
The addition of the new connection provides ServerPoint with new routes for data entering and leaving its network, allowing many visitors to connect to hosted sites at lower latency. With the added redundancy the connection provides, ServerPoint can also minimize the chance of any possible network downtime. ServerPoint hopes to increase its network capacity to 8-10 gigabits within a year.
Mr. Johnson added, ”ServerPoint is housed in a neutral-carrier facility, fully redundant in everything. We provide our customers with our own network, including two new routers, in which we recently invested more than $100,000. We focus on providing a reliable, very fast, high-quality network, so that our customers can focus on their businesses.”
