Data Foundry, a provider of data center colocation, disaster recovery and managed services, is expanding its Ashburn, Virginia presence by deploying a colocation business suite inside Equinix’s DC10 data center.
Data Foundry owns and operates four premium data centers in Texas and offers a suite of global colocation and managed services in data centers located in Ashburn, Los Angeles, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.
The business suite inside Equinix’s DC10 data center allows Data Foundry to meet the growing demand from its customers for managed services and managed colocation in Northern Virginia’s “Data Center Alley”. The region is one of the largest Internet exchange points in the United States. It also gives Data Foundry access to a high concentration of IT, telecommunications, biotech, federal government, and international organizations in the region.
Current Data Foundry customers, among which Apptix, a provider of hosted business communication, collaboration, and IT solutions, have already signed up for space in DC10.
“Having partnered with Data Foundry for several years in Austin, we’re excited that Data Foundry is expanding its capabilities within our Northern Virginia backyard,” said Peter Walther, Vice President of Business Operation, Apptix, Inc. “The proximity between our corporate headquarters in Herndon and their new Ashburn data center enables Apptix to more effectively leverage Data Foundry’s capabilities to enhance our service for our blue-chip channel partners and global customer base.”
Founded in 1994, Data Foundry supports more than 1,000 enterprise customers with its colocation and managed services across a variety of industries including energy, healthcare and financial services.
