    The Open House was designed to showcase the recently expanded facility which was completed in late 2007 and made more than 2,000 square feet of additional rack space immediately available to customers.

We look forward to exploring working together to deliver next generation solutions to the Baltimore market."

We did so much in 2007, it was great to host so many people interested in learning more about us and celebrating our success."

Attendees were introduced to information from industry leading companies including Hatteras Networks, LeftHand Networks, NEC and Cisco via informational kiosks located outside the data center, and had the opportunity to win more than $5,000 in prizes including a free month's of service on a new rack within the data center.
