DIGITAL FORTRESS LAUNCHES ITS CLOUD-BASED SERVICES OFFERINGS FROM ITS SEATTLE, WA AREA DATACENTER
Branded Offering from PeakColo Provides Digital Fortress Customers with Enterprise-Class Cloud-Based Services
Seattle, WA – April 4, 2012 – Digital Fortress, Inc., www.dfcolo.com, a newly formed operator of datacenter colocation facilities announced today it will be offering its customers an enterprise-class suite of Cloud-based services from its datacenter space in Seattle, WA. These Cloud-based services, built upon industry leading VMware vCloud Powered® solutions from PeakColo, provide a complement to its hosting and colocation services and fill out the suite of sophisticated offerings and services for its customers.
Tim Doherty, Digital Fortress’ Corporate Chief Development Officer said, “Digital Fortress will differentiate itself in its markets by delivering its own branded, enterprise-class Cloud-based services to our customers. In addition to these Cloud-based services, our operating model will continue to deliver best-in-class infrastructure solutions comparable to nationally recognized competitors, but at a more attractive value to customers.”
With the emergence of cloud computing, a growing number of Digital Fortress’ customers were asking for a robust cloud services offering running on an enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Digital Fortress’ core competencies, however, revolve around highly reliable physical infrastructure and colocation services, not cloud technology. Therefore, Digital Fortress decided to find a partner that could provide a white-label IaaS solution.
Digital Fortress selected the WhiteCloud Services® from PeakColo. PeakColo, based in Denver, CO, is a leading provider of white-label Cloud-based services. Its WhiteCloud Services are built upon VMware and NetApp foundational technologies. As a testament to its design, development, support and validated world-wide usage of its WhiteCloud Services, PeakColo’s offerings have achieved the designation of VMware vCloud Powered.
“We are delighted to enter into this relationship with Digital Fortress for their white-label usage of our WhiteCloud Services”, states Luke Norris, CEO and founder of PeakColo. “In partnering with PeakColo, Digital Fortress is able to immediately offer its customers highly flexible, efficient and reliable Cloud-based services with enterprise-class features and performance”.
