When you hear “Fortress”, a few powerful words such as ‘resilience’ and ‘safety’ come to mind. Well, Faction’s Seattle cloud node is housed within a true Fortress: Digital Fortress, that is. At this location, Faction customers can enjoy any combination of private, public, hybrid and disaster recovery cloud solutions. Digital Fortress’ facility has 24×7 assistance, N+1 infrastructure and onsite NOC support. The data center is well positioned to support even the most complex of IaaS cloud environments. What’s more, dark fiber access to Seattle’s major Point of Presence (PoP) ensures customers can use their existing network carrier to plug into the Faction cloud, ensuring a seamless, interconnected network with low latency and high performance.

Digital Fortress’ Seattle Data Center resides at Intergate West, which is one of the largest campuses in North America. We aren’t saying bigger is better, but in this case, it might as well be. Digital Fortress is also in close proximately to Seattle’s Sea-Tac International Airport, making it super convenient for out-of-town engineers.
