(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Data Center and Managed Services provider InfoRelay Online Systems, Inc. announced on Monday that it has officially acquired its second data center in Northern Virginia. The purpose-built facility is equipped with both N+1 and 2N redundancy options and was previously owned by 365 Data Centers, who originally purchased the site from Equinix in 2012. Although InfoRelay has provided network and colocation services at this facility since 2006, their new ownership of this data center will allow the company to offer more customized and robust solutions to new clients and legacy customers already colocated at the site.
Conveniently located in the heart of Reston, VA, this is a carrier-neutral data center featuring diverse fiber entrances that connect the facility to multiple network providers including: Cogent, Level(3), Verizon Business, Zayo, and others. InfoRelay offers a suite of services at this location, including: AC and DC power, commercial-grade Internet and private network connectivity, managed services and cloud services. InfoRelay also offers direct access to dozens of other carrier networks, which are accessible via its expansive dark-fiber network, interconnecting the commercially dense Northern Virginia region.
Russell Weiss, President of InfoRelay, commented that the company’s acquisition of the Reston-based data center will benefit the 20 year old firm in many ways. “Aside from adding experienced technical talent to the team, we can now provide high levels of flexibility pertaining to cage deployments and network connectivity at the Reston facility,” he explained. “Unlike many data centers in the area, we can provide cage space with relatively minimal power density requirements. This flexibility provides lower cost of entry, allowing us to address the needs of a broader client base. We can also provide short-term contracts for data center staging as well as diverse connectivity options to key network providers which are already built into the facility.”
As of June 1st, 2015, InfoRelay now owns two of the four Northern Virginia data centers in which the company operates. Their data center footprint extends nationally, with eleven other data centers in seven major cities across the United States. “InfoRelay was already uniquely positioned as one of the only providers of managed colocation and cloud services with a national presence,” stated Josh Abraham, Director of Product Development for InfoRelay. “The acquisition of this Reston facility is really exciting for several reasons. Not only does it add experienced staff but it also allows us to offer even more flexible disaster recovery and business continuity solutions to clients nationally. This further cements our significant presence in Northern Virginia.”
