We understand what customers want and need in a colocation facility, and we believe we can bring that to the underserved market here in the Twin Cities,” says Brian Emerson, President of Point North Networks, Inc.”
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
Point North Networks, Inc. (http://www.pointnorth.net), a leader in Hosting, Virtualization, & Managed Services, announced today the launch of their new Minneapolis Data Center & Colocation suite, located in the 511 building across from the new Vikings stadium. The data center will allow Point North to offer colocation services at a lower cost than is currently available in the Twin Cities market.
With the launch of the new facility, Point North will be able to offer its current client base a more reliable local service offering, which includes server virtualization, web & email hosting, managed support, and hosted apps as well as full rack, half-rack, or single server colocation & network services.
The new data center is a state-of-the-art facility located in downtown Minneapolis, MN, and has the densest collection of networks in the upper Midwest. It is also home to the Midwest Internet Cooperative Exchange (http://www.micemn.net). Colocation (Colo) offerings include the choice of rack configurations, redundant utility feeds, blended BGP bandwidth, N+1 chilled water with redundant well backup system, as well as a host of add-on services such as monitoring, backups, patch management, and advanced support.
“Up until now, Point North has chosen to outsource its large server infrastructure to colocation facilities here in Minneapolis as well as other areas of the country. With our rapid growth rate, it makes sense to operate and manage our own facility. In doing so, we can control the quality, reliability, and value to a higher degree than when outsourcing. Being a colocation client for so many years ourselves, we understand what customers want and need in a colocation facility, and we believe we can bring that to the underserved market here in the Twin Cities,” says Brian Emerson, President of Point North Networks, Inc.
The Data Center & Colocation offering adds to Point North’s already extensive services, including Remote IT support, Web & Email Hosting, Cloud Servers, Windows & Linux Virtual Servers, Server Consolidation Services, and Consulting & Engineering Services.
