InfoRelay Online Systems, Inc., a leading IT solutions and connectivity provider, expanded its Equinix data center footprint in the Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas areas to accommodate a significant increase in demand for colocation and high availability data center solutions in the face of a growing cloud services market.
The Dallas Equinix data center is located within one of the key telecommunications hubs within Dallas: the InfoMart building. This facility serves as a key Internet and peering exchange point for many networks. The 61,573 square foot data center features industry-leading security and interconnection options. InfoMart will continue to play a major role in InfoRelay's portfolio as it continues to adopt to the shifting industry landscape and increasing adoption of cloud technologies.
Besides Dallas, InfoRelay maintains primary network Points of Presence (PoPs) within multiple markets nationwide, including Los Angeles and Southern California, San Jose and the Silicon Valley area, Washington, DC, Northern Virginia, and New York City. Within each market, InfoRelay provides high availability server colocation—the ability for clients to host their servers in secure server cabinets owned by InfoRelay. Each cabinet includes power from redundant UPS and generator-backed power systems, and is cooled by a redundant cooling infrastructure. In addition to highly redundant colocation, InfoRelay also provides bandwidth, disaster recovery, and network security solutions to over 150,000 Internet users through its main product line.
By supporting a growing number of shared hosting providers, cloud providers, and content and dedicated server hosts, InfoRelay has gained insight into providing high availability IP services over a self-healing network architecture.
“Our expanding footprint in Dallas is a direct result of our commitment to having the highest quality service for our customers. With the recent blooming interest in cloud services, geographic diversity as well as scalability are a must for any top-end hosting provider,” commented Mr. Joseph Vajda, Director of Network Operations for InfoRelay.
The expansion will take effect November 1, 2011.
