C I Host, a leading Web host and Internet
solutions provider, will open a data center nine minutes from Manhattan in
“The expansion will accommodate the needs of our colocation customers and
expand our portfolio of geographic-specific services,” said Christopher
Faulkner, CEO of C I Host. “We’ll offer services to SMBs usually only
available to larger companies, and at prices they can afford.”
The 10,000-square-foot Newark facility will have a direct, private fiber
connection to the London facility enabling private data transfer.
“For top speed, reliability and security, data flowing between these
centers will pass on a private C I Host network, not public Internet,”
Enhanced geographic-specific services include disaster recovery solutions,
data backup services, geographic load balancing, data warehousing and
SMBs will benefit from having greater access to geographic content
distribution, load balancing and redundant locations.
“We will introduce enterprise services to SMB owners and give them access
to service levels and features they never thought possible,” Faulkner said.
“Normally these services are reserved for customers paying more. With us, SMB
customers can have servers in Newark, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago and San
Jose, or any combination of these, for under $1,000 monthly.”
Housing equipment and serving data at locations around the globe is
important for companies with customers in several locations. The closer the
server is to the customer, the more quickly the site loads and the more likely
the customer stays online.
C I Host’s centers are protected by sophisticated physical and cyber-
security systems. The Newark center will be staffed 24/7 with trained
administrators to ensure customers’ sites and servers stay active and
