Host Virtual, a global cloud hosting provider with 16 data centers around the world, has upgraded and expanded its data center presence in Denver, Colorado. The upgrade adds additional capacity and connectivity to Host Virtual’s Anycast IaaS cloud hosting environment.
The company’s Denver data center, opened on February 2013 and the thirteenth of 16 around the world, is located in downtown Denver and in one of the areas with the least seismic activity in the United States. The improvements in capacity and connectivity upgrade the existing peering options in the Rocky Mountain area by connecting Host Virtual’s downtown datacenter location to the carrier hotel run by CoreSite in Denver.
“We constantly monitor our data centers around the world to ensure that our customers will always have access to the latest technology for their cloud hosting needs,” said Kris Slevens, director of customer experience. “This means adding connectivity and storage capacity to existing locations, in the case of our Denver location, and in other cases it means opening up a new data center. We need to be wherever our customer demands take us, and always offer the best experience.”
In addition to Denver, Host Virtual’s also recently upgraded its Dallas facility and opened a new data center in Toronto to better serve the Eastern half of Canada.
Host Virtual offers BGP Anycast, load balancing, and worldwide CDN support with its cloud hosting Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Over 300 operating system templates can be deployed by the company’s customers to its data centers that utilize native dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 support.
