Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) March 16, 2010
Latisys, a national provider of colocation, managed hosting, managed services and disaster recovery solutions, today announced it has expanded to the Greater Washington market by acquiring Pryme Technologies, LLC, a provider of managed hosting and colocation services. Latisys purchased Pryme's Ashburn, VA business and is converting it into a brand new, state-of-the-art data center campus at two long-term leased buildings at the Corporate Campus at Ashburn Center.
The new 123,000 square foot Tier III Ashburn, Virginia data center campus - strategically located within minutes of Washington Dulles International Airport and in close proximity to the Federal Government - rounds out a national footprint that covers four U.S. time zones including data centers on the east and west coast of the U.S. The data center is available now for customers, delivering high-density (HD) data center colocation power, fiber rich network connectivity to domestic and international networks, managed hosting and managed services, including enterprise-class security, disaster recovery and storage.
Key attributes of the Latisys state-of-the-art data center campus:
- Network-centric facility - The data center campus is geographically positioned in Ashburn for reliable connectivity to carriers on a fully diverse fiber infrastructure.
- Scalable space and power - the approximately 123,000 square foot campus is comprised of a 71,000 square foot building and a 52,000 square foot building, each of which can deliver in excess of 200 watts per square foot to the customer.
- State-of-the-art security - The data center campus features highly secure and multi-layered security systems, digital video surveillance network monitors, and a facility manned 24x7x365 all tied into Latisys' national support structure.
- Optimized for high density deployments - The data center campus features redundant power and cooling, 36"raised floor space optimized for high density dedicated cabinet, custom cage and private suite deployments.
"We believe the addition of this campus in Ashburn provides an outstanding east coast presence in a strategic market. The acquisition compliments our other U.S. markets and allows us broader reach into business and government customers, while positioning Latisys with an important gateway to Europe," said Pete Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer at Latisys. "The expansion reaffirms Latisys' flexible service delivery approach is resonating with organizations that face demanding IT infrastructure and growth requirements."
With the newly-leased Ashburn Virginia Tier III Data Center complimenting existing SAS 70 Type II compliant facilities in Chicago, Denver and Irvine, California, Latisys now delivers coverage across all U.S. time zones - and gateways into the Asia Pacific and Europe - delivering unmatched scalability and multi-site redundancy to enterprise customers whether they want to off-site, off-load, outsource or optimize their IT infrastructure.
