HostDime, one of the world’s largest hosting providers providing solutions like cloud hosting, dedicated servers and colocation, has officially opened a new corporate office in Research Park, Orlando, Florida. HostDime chose the area for its proximity to the University of Central Florida and the technology-focused area. The estimated cost for the build-out and all furniture reached close to $1M.
The new 15,000 square foot corporate office will house over 100 employees in HostDime’s support, sales, creative design, marketing, and management teams. The new headquarters will be operational around the clock to facilitate HostDime’s 24/7/365 customer service and support.
Founded in 2001, HostDime currently has over 250 employees in seven countries. The hosting provider is conservatively estimating the addition of 40 to 50 new jobs in the coming year and many more in the future.
HostDime’s IT room
The newly renovated space includes a 1,000 square foot fully-redundant IT room with UPS and generator backup. A corresponding diesel fuel reserve was installed on site to power all operations for up to a week in the event of an emergency. The room is primarily designed to facilitate the sales and support operations so there is no downtime in the event of a power failure.
The IT room will also serve as a backup facility for HostDime’s primary internal systems for customer communication. In addition, the room will house disaster recovery servers from HostDime’s DimeNOC data center for clients on a disaster recovery plan. A 1G private fiber line to the DimeNOC data center network will facilitate the data replication and the backup capacity needed to ensure full redundancy.
