Caronet Completes Tier 3 Transition by Expanding Data Center Space and Power Availability

Expansion Leverages Green Energy to Reduce Environmental Footprint while Accommodating Growth across Global Markets
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – October 20, 2011 – Caronet, one of the Southeast’s premier colocation and hosting facilities and managed hosting service providers, has announced that it is expanding its space and power availability to accommodate growth experienced by its east coast data center. The company expands with more than 15,000 square feet of hosting and colocation space supported by significant increases to its power supply and backup units to bring its total data center footprint across three units to more than 40,000 square feet of Tier 3 space. Caronet’s “green” facility allows it to leverage solar power in providing customers with fairly priced, optimally equipped, environmentally conscious colocation and hosting facilities and managed services.
“Our expanded space and enhanced power availability illustrates our growing presence in several global market sectors where our experience and knowledge is unique,” said Morgan Miskell, Director of Engineering and Facilities for Caronet. “We have cultivated relationships in the online gaming industry because our expertise in the technical requirements of hosting and managed services is matched by our knowledge of the specific infrastructure challenges its developers face. Our attention to the environmental impact we make adds a unique thread to the conversation. ”
Caronet’s immediate enhancements establish the power availability and increased cooling capacities in its existing managed data center facilities to provide enterprise ready hosting and colocation services for all customers - including those who need high density application space.
“In-row cooling units have been added to increase cooling capacity and redundancy. Many customers are deploying custom applications that require fully redundant power paths for failover and these applications can draw more power than most data centers can adequately cool. This increased cooling capacity goes hand-in-hand with the newer high density applications. Caronet’s enhancements surpass industry standards and provide customers with space that is more than adequate for current needs and future growth,” adds Miskell.
Upon completion of its early 2012 expansion, Caronet will increase its capacity to more than 40,000 square feet of Tier 3 hosting and colocation space that is uniquely equipped with the power and cooling capacities to support high density application needs.
Caronet’s managed hosting, colocation and hosting services help customers improve performance and reliability as they lower costs and maximize internal resources. Caronet enhances its secure, private network and enterprise-class colocation hosting facilities with premier engineering and support, offering a wide range of solutions in a reliable, cost-efficient platform to companies around the globe.
