September 12th, 2013 By: Rich Miller
Cloud infrastructure provider Ajubeo will expand into the New York metro market with a new deployment of modular data center capacity in Edison, New Jersey, the company said today. For the expansion, Ajubeo continues to work with FORTRUST, its data center partner in in its home market of Colorado.
FORTRUST will house Ajubeo’s IT equipment in an IO.Anywhere modular data center in space it leases inside IO’s massive facility in Edison. The installation will be Ajubeo’s primary cloud hub in the Northeast.
Ajubeo is a Boulder-based provider that offers enterprise hardware, software and networking technology packaged for either direct sales to end users or as a private-label Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud platform for channel partners. Ajubeo is backed by Grey Mountain Partners, a Boulder-based private equity firm that recently boosted its investment in the cloud provider.
“The combination of strong demand for Ajubeo high-performance cloud infrastructure as a service and new funding from Grey Mountain Partners made this an ideal time to expand our Northeast cloud hub footprint,” said Tom Whitcomb, a co-founder of Ajubeo. “We selected FORTRUST and IO.Anywhere for its unparalleled energy efficiency when supporting high-density colocation environments such as Ajubeo cloud computing. Additionally, the new modular data center will increase operational efficiency and reinforce our layered cloud security model with multiple new access denial features.”
FORTRUST has been Ajubeo’s data center provider in the Denver market since the company’s inception. All of FORTRUST’s locations are Tier III design certified by the Uptime Institute.
“The best validation of business and operational success is customer loyalty and continued expansion,” said David Shepard, SVP of Sales & Marketing for FORTRUST. “IO.Anywhere was built for companies like Ajubeo who demand maximum uptime, scalability and security. IO.Anywhere can handle increased per rack densities, and provide intelligent data center design that enables expedited cloud hub commissioning and data center expansion. We were able to provide this optimum solution in a standardized deployment across states to expedite Ajubeo’s growth.”
As the first participant in the Powered by IO program, FORTRUST uses IO modular data center technology exclusively as it expands its colocation and disaster recovery services. IO Anywhere is a family of modular data center components that can create and deploy a fully-configured enterprise data center. FORTRUST now has IO data modules in all three of its locations, which include its own data center in Denver and IO-operated facilities in Phoenix and Edison,
