Chicago, Illinois – (The Hosting News) – December 6, 2007 –
Managed dedicated and virtual private server (VPS) hosting solutions provider, WiredTree, has selected 427 LaSalle Street in Chicago, as the location for its most recent datacenter expansion.
Zac Cogswell, President of WiredTree remarked, ”After an extensive evaluation process, we selected this facility because it has the redundant infrastructure and controls in place that our mission-critical hosting requires. Not only has the facility been recently renovated, it’s located just a couple of blocks from our corporate headquarters in downtown Chicago.”
The new datacenter, which provides up to 60,000 square feet of conditioned datacenter space for WiredTree to move into immediately, is hoped to allow the company to expand its product and service offerings while still maintaining its rigid quality control standards. The new facility provides WiredTree with three 3,000 AMP 480Volt 3 Phase ComEd electrical feeds from multiple power sub-stations; three 2-megawatt electrical generators; four 500KvA UPS systems; and four 300-ton chillers. The new datacenter also provides 24×7 security staffing, including digital security cameras, a key card access system, and data tracking and recording.
Additionally, the facility has automated logic monitoring of all electrical equipment, as well as connectivity to multiple backbone providers, including Savvis, Level3, AT and T, Qwest, XO, Sprint-Nextel, Verizon, Abovenet and Cogent.
Mr. Cogswell continued, ”Our new datacenter will allow us to continue to both serve our existing client base and expand our network to additional Tier-1 providers. It’s always been our goal to provide the latest technology – whether it’s datacenter capabilities or server hardware â€“ to meet the growing needs of our customers. This new facility is latest step in that process.”
Formed in June, 2006, WiredTree provides Fully-Managed Dedicated and Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting, with customer support, a suite of service offerings, and comprehensive network design.
