StratITsphere, ScaleMatrix Announce Data Center Partnership to Provide Greater Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity to Clients(April 26, 2012)
HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 04/26/12 -- Colocation customers of two data centers in Texas and California will enjoy greater protection from disasters thanks to a new alliance announced today.
ScaleMatrix, a San Diego colocation and private cloud hosting provider, and StratITsphere, a
Houston-based data center, cloud computing, and IT & security infrastructure consulting firm, will provide high availability and geographic redundancy services to clients within each other's facilities.
"Our Alpha Data Center will act as a backup for ScaleMatrix, and their data center will act as a backup for us," said Stephen Webster, president and chief executive officer of StratITsphere. "In the extremely unlikely event that one of the two data centers should experience down time, clients could continue operations from the other location to keep their businesses up and running."
While both data center operators have had redundancy partnerships in the past, what makes this arrangement unique is the investment in a private, 10 Gbps transport ring that is being established between the two data center sites. Each company will set up dedicated, cage-secured equipment in the other's facility as part of the agreement.
"This partnership gives both best-in-class data center operators the ability to have a visible solution for geographic diversity," said Chris Orlando, chief sales and marketing officer with ScaleMatrix. "StratITsphere's mix of physical infrastructure, reputation and client service capabilities made them a perfect choice to help support the high availability needs of our clients."
StratITsphere found ScaleMatrix to be a good fit for similar reasons, including ScaleMatrix's ability to host clients requiring high density power of more than 30 kilowatts per rack in their San Diego data center.
"When we evaluated this partnership, we found ScaleMatrix shared our dedication to excellence in equipment, personnel and customer service," Webster said. "We're proud to be working with them."

Its Tier-IV design provides the best quality protection available from man-made and natural perils for client's mission critical systems and data.
