Codero is excited to be opening our third US data center in Ashburn, VA.
The answer is why not? Virginia is the “Birthplace of the Nation” and 8 former presidents including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. It is home to some really good seafood (it even has the only oyster museum in the world), and was the first place peanuts were grown in the United States. It also serves as the home to the US Navy’s Atlantic Fleet, so you know your data is well protected beyond the walls of our new data center.
Besides us being patriotic, it is important for us to establish an east coast presence in order to better support our customers. Being located on the east coast allows us to be closer to large population centers such as Washington DC, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia as well as being closer to Europe. This allows us to serve our East Coast based customers and their consumers even better, as well as serving European customers needing a US presence.
Ashburn itself is specifically located just outside of Washington D.C. in an area known as the Dulles Technology Corridor. This is home to many high-tech corporations as well as government agencies with three letter acronyms (get my drift?). In fact, almost 60% of all internet traffic passes through the Dulles area! With a number like that you can see why it is so important for us to have a state-of-the-art facility and presence there.
Our new data center upholds the high quality standards that our other facilities are known for and features:
- SSAE 16 (SAS 70 Type II) certification
- 36″ raised floor space in a premium 71,000 sq. ft. facility
- Multiple Tier 1 bandwidth providers including AboveNet, XO and Level 3
- N+1 redundant Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) and redundant generators
- Advanced systems monitoring, 24×7 on-site security and biometric access
Already on board in another Codero location?
There’s good reason to store your data in multiple data center locations:
- Enhanced site performance and speed
- Additional back-up and site redundancy
- Protection from unforeseen natural disasters
