Tranquil Hosting, a web hosting provider founded in 2002, has announced the launch of its New York data center – bringing its IaaS cloud to the largest city in the U.S. The new location would offer high connectivity to leading business and financial institutions – including Wall Street banking firms – application providers, and media/content providers, in the most important financial center of the world.
Tranquil Hosting’s new data center in New York City offers access to 800 carriers, ISPs and enterprise networks as well as 60 financial networks. It allows direct connections to the New York Stock Exchange’s SFTI Network and Telx’s Financial Business Exchange. In addition, users will have access to NYIIX, one of the leading carrier-neutral IP peering exchanges – ranked in the top 10 global exchanges.
With redundant fiber cables, onsite facility engineering support, backup generators, 24/7/365 manned security with biometric access control, the data center is located outside the 100-year flood zone – further mitigating risk factors.
“Customers looking for latency-sensitive cloud deployments will have access to one of the best-connected data centers,” said Mark Price, CEO of Tranquil Hosting. “Our proximity to Wall Street offers a solution for those focused on high frequency trading presence, fintech, ad exchanges, or connectivity into one of the largest and most active Internet exchanges. Our private connection to Tranquil Hosting’s Ashburn data center in the Washington DC area is a plus, directly linking two of the most important cities on the East Coast.”
Tranquil Hosting plans to continue data center launches with its bare metal and cloud platform offerings.
