Hosted Solutions has completed more than $6 million in upgrades to its Boston data center, with improvements in power, cooling, back-up power and security. With the upgrades, Hosted Solutions has begun offering a suite of managed services including application management, managed replication, disaster recovery, load balancing and advanced monitoring.
“We have seen tremendous momentum with our customer growth throughout New England,” said Mike Lee, Regional Manager for Hosted Solutions. “Given current market conditions, companies today require a trusted partner who can provide them with services across all areas of IT, rather than simply providing data center space or point solutions. Increasingly, companies recognize both the immediate and ongoing value of having a trusted partner provide them with the full range of outsourced technology services.
Lee said Hosted Solutions’ expansion in New England is part of the strategic direction the company has embarked upon, as part of its acquisition last year by ABRY Partners. The company also has four other high-capacity data centers in North Carolina, serving markets up and down the East Coast. ABRY Partner also owns Houston-based colocation provider CyrusOne, and has invested in significant data center expansions and upgrades at both providers.
This is the second series of upgrades to the company’s Boston operations. Hosted Solutions invested $1 million in upgrades after its acquisition of Boston Datacenters in 2006. Upgrades include a redesign of the interior layout to promote better cooling, an improved data backup system, and additional UPS power support.
