Qwest Web Hosting Is a Critical Part of Qwest
iQ Networking(TM) Solution
Qwest Communications International Inc. today announced it is expanding its
Sunnyvale, Calif. CyberCenter(SM), and reopening its Columbus, Ohio CyberCenter
to better meet the needs of business customers seeking Web hosting services and
related wide area networking solutions. By expanding these spaces, Qwest can
accommodate more customers and provide them with industry-leading services.
The Qwest CyberCenters provide a secure, reliable and scaleable location for
customers’ hosting needs. The expanded Qwest CyberCenter in Sunnyvale will be
adjacent to the existing Qwest facility, creating one large complex for Qwest
Web hosting in Northern California. The Columbus, Ohio CyberCenter is reopening
to meet growing customer demand in the Midwest and required minimal capital
investment because Qwest is using its existing facility.
The Sunnyvale and Columbus CyberCenters include the same state-of-the-art
features as the other eight Qwest CyberCenters, including:
* World-class centralized monitoring and management
* Highly skilled operations staff on duty
* Advanced redundant power systems
* Fully monitored cooling systems
* Multiple levels of security
* High-speed network connections
* Gigabit Ethernet connectivity
Web hosting is a key component of Qwest’s iQ Networking(TM) solution, which
addresses businesses’ wide area networking environments by providing
feature-rich platforms built specifically for customers’ business applications.
Qwest recently launched Web hosting service enhancements such as improved
disaster recovery services and business continuity giving customers solutions to
their business challenges.
“Customers want solutions-oriented networking and a critical part of that
is Web hosting. Since customer demand for hosting has grown more than 10 percent
in the past year, we decided to expand our Sunnyvale and Columbus CyberCenters,”
said Cliff Holtz, executive vice president for Qwest business markets group.
“iQ Networking is the cornerstone of our business solutions and it doesn’t
exist without our resolute commitment to Web hosting and our Web hosting
services. This is a great move for Qwest and for customers who can rest assured
that Qwest is meeting their needs.”
The additional space in the Columbus facility will be available for customer use
immediately and the Sunnyvale space will be available by June 2004, however
businesses interested in reserving space at either facility or learning more
