Carpathia Hosting has opened a new data center in Toronto, Ontario, which is the company's first international facility. Just 45 days after being provisioned, the new site is already "managing hundreds of servers, over 5 petabytes of storage and over 80 Gigabits of bandwidth," the company said today.
"To meet customer demands for datacenter space and services outside the United States, we selected Toronto as our first international datacenter location," said Peter Weber, CEO of Carpathia Hosting. "This expands our datacenter footprint to nine Tier 3 facilities worldwide, allowing us to provide geographic diversity and redundancy to our global customer base."
Carpathia Hosting offers secure managed hosting services for federal and enterprise customers with high storage and bandwidth requirements. The Toronto expansion caps a period of rapid growth for Carpathia, which now manages more than 18.5 petabytes of storage and pushes over 350 Gigabits per second of content.
"Using cloud computing principles, we have developed solutions to manage immense amounts of storage in the most reliable and cost-effective manner possible," said Jon Greaves, CTO of Carpathia Hosting. "Customers with significant storage requirements that demand scale and resiliency should take a closer look at our unique approach."
Carpathia is among the managed hosting providers who have rapidly expanded their infrastructure after being acquired by a private equity firm, a trend also seen at Latisys, Cyrus One and Hosted Solutions. Spire Capital Partners acquired a majority interest in Carpathia last year.
Carpathia Hosting also has data centers in Los Angeles and Sacramento in California; Phoenix, Ariz.; Kansas City, Mo.; and Ashburn and Harrisonburg, Va. Carpathia is the anchor tenant in the Blue Ridge Data Center in Harrisonburg.
