(The Hosting News) – ServInt, a pioneering provider of managed hosting for enterprises worldwide, today announced it has completed build-out of its new data center facility in Reston, Va., and that customers are now being turned up in the new location.
The Reston data center – built to accommodate ServInt’s strong recent growth – initially adds more than one-half a megawatt of capacity to ServInt’s existing North American data center footprint, and provides ample, additional on-site capacity for further expansion. The Reston location, which joins three other ServInt facilities in McLean, Va., Washington, DC and Los Angeles, offers excellent power and connectivity redundancy, and meets the highest standards for environmental sustainability.
“ServInt has been growing rapidly over the past year,” said ServInt CTO Matt Loschert. “This new private data center – built to our exacting specifications within one of the most advanced facilities on the East Coast – will allow us to easily accommodate that growth. The fact that our new location, like our DC facility, has access to some of the highest-quality connectivity in the country is an additional plus.”

- SAS 70 Type II certified;
- Six public utility feeds from two separate substations;
- 2N/N+1 UPS power configurations;
