Web-hosting leader Hostway Corp. today announced the opening of its substantially upgraded Internet Data Center in Vancouver, BC. With this upgrade, Hostway reaffirms its commitment to the Canadian market and continues its strategy of building and operating a worldwide network of such centers supporting its global base of hosting customers.
In January, the company purchased a $40 million Class A Internet Data Center facility in Seoul, South Korea, expanding Hostway’s presence in the vital Asia-Pacific market. Hostway expects to announce the openings later this year of at least two more data centers in North America. It currently owns and operates data centers in 7 locations worldwide.
“With the opening of our new Vancouver data center, Hostway continues to upgrade, expand and add to our growing global network of Class A Internet data center facilities,” said Hostway CEO Lucas Roh. “Hostway remains committed to our strategy of building and managing the best infrastructure to support the growing needs of our customers worldwide. Our continuing investment in these data centers provides important proof of our dedication to putting our customers’ needs first.”
The new Vancouver data center is located in the city’s new Bentall Tower office complex, Vancouver’s newest AAA-rated commercial building. From this data center, Hostway is able to support a complete suite of hosting services starting from shared hosting services to complex multi-server dedicated hosting services. Its ideal location at the heart of the city will provide an easy-to-reach enterprise level colocation service for the Vancouver business community.
Among the center’s key technology features are fully redundant internal networks, multiple Internet backbone fiber connections, N+1 redundant HVAC system, power backup through uninterruptible power supply units and generators, and biometric security system. The data center is operated through 24/7 Network Operation Center located in the same space. The facility includes significant space for continued expansion.
