Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) June 10, 2011
Data Based Systems International, Inc. (DBSi) opened its third data center outside of Breinigsville, PA in a well-attended Open House celebration last week. DBSi is a leading provider of managed hosting services, high-end colocation, and workspace recovery in the Mid-Atlantic region. Its newest Hosting and Recovery Advanced Technology Center at TEKPark is an impressive 220,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility with over 100,000 square feet available for data center expansion.
The data center is being commissioned in four phases with approximately 50% of TEKPark's first phase already under contract by several major healthcare and manufacturing clients. Among the first includes St. Luke's Hospital & Health Network (SLHHN) - a multi-hospital system affiliated with more than 1,200 doctors serving the greater Lehigh Valley. Of the decision to select DBSi TEKPark as their data center hosting provider, Director of Architecture and Engineering for SLHHN, Jeff Stone said, “DBSi offered the best options hands down, across the board.” “Making a data center hosting decision was easy; the challenge was in identifying a viable location that would best secure our investment in systems and health care information and would be capable of scaling into the future.” After touring the facility at the open house event, Stone remarked, “Working closely with their teams over the last several months and now seeing the fruition of all their hard work only further confirms our decision to move forward with DBSi – outstanding!”
Strategically positioned, DBSi’s TEKPark facility was designed to support cost-effective technology solutions for clients who require exceptional support for mission-critical business processing and operations. The data center also supports the ever growing cooling and power requirements of high-density servers and storage along with many innovative green technologies. Fed by multiple electrical substations, it has the capacity to grow to over 100 megawatts.
The company’s third facility expands its regional presence by joining its Valley Forge and Bethlehem sites with dark fiber to support real-time data replication between the sites. This allows DBSi clients to create an active-active production IT strategy while leveraging a tertiary site for long term archival storage of mission critical data, or a third active site. DBSi’s carrier-neutral network topology extends its three data center ring to major cities including New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago. This combination of multiple data centers and network paths was strategically designed to provide the highest level of redundancy and resiliency for DBSi clients.
Headquartered in Bethlehem, PA, DBSi operates secure, high performance, highly available data centers in Bethlehem, Valley Forge, and Allentown (Breinigsville), PA.
