Adhost Internet, a leading provider of server colocation and shared server hosting in downtown Seattle, today opened the doors to a greatly expanded data center - 50% more rack space than the original one. In addition to the extra rack space, the data center, which is located in the Fisher Plaza in downtown Seattle, features a more efficient air conditioning system and an improved security system.

“Just one year after moving into our data center at the Fisher Plaza, we had added so many servers for our colocation clients that we had to start planning a data center expansion,” commented Will Riffle, President and CEO of Adhost.

Added Kurt Widmann, Adhost Sales Manager, “It’s a relief to have the extra space available for our new and existing clients. We’ve had a wait-list since the spring. Our lockable ¼ and ½ cabinets have been very popular.”

Other features of Adhost’s data center include:

•    Seismically braced cabinets with lockable front and back doors for added security

•    Redundant HVAC environmental cooling systems

•    Two emergency wells to supply water to cooling towers if city water is unavailable

•    Perimeter and interior card key access system with 24/7 security monitoring

•    Proprietary, redundant and cross-configured multi-homed router network
