DataSite, a colocation provider with data centers in Orlando, Atlanta and Boise, has announced a strategic alliance with Layered Tech, a hosting provider specializing in PCI, HIPAA and FISMA data compliance. This partnership enhances both companies’ portfolio of service offerings.
The partnership enables DataSite to offer managed services and cloud hosting solutions to customers who had to look to other colocation facilities in the past. “Those customers can now take advantage of Layered Tech’s expertise while still benefiting from DataSite’s ultra-secure facilities with world-class power and cooling infrastructure,” said Robert Wilson Vice President of Sales and Marketing, DataSite.
For Layered Tech, the alliance extends the company’s network of data centers through which they deliver secure cloud, managed hosting and compliance solutions. The company, which currently operates data centers in Dallas, Kansas City, Chicago and Washington D.C. metro areas, can now easily accommodate new customers who prefer to maintain their hardware in the Orlando, Atlanta or Boise markets.
$20 million investment
“The alliance opens up new markets and gives Layered Tech an introduction to DataSite customers considering outsourcing the management of their IT infrastructure,” said Layered Tech CEO Bruce Chatterly. “At the same time, it enables Layered Tech customers who have regional requirements in Florida, Georgia or Idaho to expand their reach into those key markets without having to manage multiple providers.”
The announcement comes as DataSite prepares to open its Boise, Idaho, data center in coming weeks. The new colocation facility consists of two raised 20,000 sq. ft. floor areas and will support Tier 3 and Tier 4 requirements. DataSite plans to spend more than $20 million for future data center space and capacity in the region.
