Web Hosting ToolsRaleigh, NC — Hosted Solutions, the East Coast’s premier provider of IT infrastructure as a service (IaaS), announced today that the company has completed a $12 million expansion of its SAS-70 Type II Raleigh data center. This includes the completion of 8,000 square feet of additional raised floor space in the data center and the completion of a state-of-the-art network operations center (NOC).

More than 500 people from the region joined the company to celebrate the expansion at a launch event last week.

The expansion makes the Hosted Solutions facility the largest, highest quality, commercially available data center available in the region. It features robust and fully redundant electrical systems, HVAC infrastructure, and multi-provider network access deployed in a best practice 2n+1 configuration to maximize redundancies. The Raleigh data center’s advanced physical security and next-generation building automation systems assure a secure and optimal operating environment.

The announcement follows a similar, multi-million dollar expansion to Hosted Solutions’ data center in Boston, completed in April. Together, the improvements demonstrate a significant commitment by Hosted Solutions to provide its customers with superior, reliable service. That commitment begins with a state-of-the-art physical infrastructure, and extends through its exclusive “Hi-Touch” consultative services to help companies design, implement and operate services that directly and positively impact their bottom line while helping them operate more efficiently.

The Raleigh data center is Hosted Solutions’ flagship facility, serving customers from the Raleigh region as well as cities throughout the East Coast. The facility also houses the new Stratus Trusted CloudTM infrastructure. The Raleigh expansion includes:

* 3′ raised floor for higher density server environments
* Dual sourced static switched PDUs capable of switching between sources within 4ms in case of failure of primary source
* High efficiency compressorless Stulz CRAC units back-ended by redundant 450ton McQuay chillers and dual chilled water loop
* Redundant paralleled UPS systems
* Redundant 2MW generators -8MW of utility power delivered to the facility with expansion plans to add an additional 4MW for a total of 12MW

“Our customers are increasingly outsourcing their entire operational IT infrastructures to us,” said Rich Lee, Hosted Solutions’ Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “They have comfort in doing this because of the quality and reliability of our facilities and the strength of our internal teams. They appreciate that even in a down economy, we’re willing to make such a significant investment, ensuring that they have access to a state-of-the-art, green, energy-efficient infrastructure. Our customers, which include 800 companies ranging from SMEs to Fortune 100 businesses, can rest assured, knowing that their mission-critical systems and applications are protected and available 24/7.”
