Hostway, a managed cloud hosting provider and specialist in compliant hybrid cloud hosting solutions, has selected Digital Realty’s colocation data centers as the foundation for its ongoing global expansion.
Hostway has nine data center locations globally, the newest of which is located in Digital Realty’s Austin facility. Hostway serves SaaS, healthcare, financial services, e-commerce, and Internet of Things (IOT) customers, most of whom are executing hybrid IT strategies that balance on-premise infrastructure, colocation and public cloud environments.
Hostway is also joining the Digital Realty Service Exchange to provide its own clients with secured, direct access to multiple public cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
“After a wide review of all options and comparison of several data center providers, we selected Digital Realty due to its superior reliability and low latency connectivity along with great customer service,” said Emil Sayegh, CEO and President of Hostway. “We view Digital Realty as a global platform with data center locations all around the world that we can leverage in our growth. Our clients have very specific requirements to comply with various regulations and we can always depend on Digital Realty to help us meet and exceed those. Additionally, the Digital Realty Service Exchange offers an unparalleled, extensive list of public cloud providers that is unmatched elsewhere in the market.”
Global Colocation Data Centers
Digital Realty supports the data center, colocation and interconnection strategies of more than 2,300 firms across its secured, network-rich portfolio of data centers located throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
“Hostway has truly distinguished itself through its focus on compliance and security, supported by its strong track record of resiliency and customer service,” said Sherri Liebo, SVP Marketing at Digital Realty. “Its experience in conducting cloud migrations with zero downtime for such a wide range of customers and applications is impressive. We are delighted that Hostway has selected the Digital Realty data centers for its ongoing expansion and look forward to working closely with Hostway and its customers to ensure their business needs are met.”
