Press release from: PeakColo

Denver, CO – PeakColo, a leading provider of enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) with its WhiteCloud Services® and technology solutions, announced today a strategic partnership to further its presence in North America by locating its newest data center node in Seattle, WA.

PeakColo, headquartered in Denver, CO, offers its enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) with its WhiteCloud Services and technology solutions from multiple data centers in North America and the UK. 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®.

“PeakColo has been expanding significantly with its enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and with our WhiteCloud Services and technology solutions. We have been looking for the right opportunity to expand into the Northwest. Our customers have been asking us to establish a presence there,” states Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of PeakColo. “The opportunity to accomplish this expansion with Digital Fortress not only supports our industry leading business model but significantly enhances it with their value-add services and exemplary operational model”.

Digital Fortress, Inc.,, is a newly formed operator of datacenter colocation facilities in Seattle, WA. Digital Fortress was launched in February 2012 as a platform to consolidate the datacenter colocation market in the Pacific Northwest and has acquired the existing datacenter businesses of digital.forest, Inc. and Fortress Colocation Centers.

Timothy Doherty, Digital Fortress’ Chief Operating Officer said, “The growth and technical requirements presented to us by PeakColo, while demanding and leading-edge for the typical datacenter, were accommodated in our standard operating model. We are excited to have PeakColo add Digital Fortress as a major PeakColo cloud services node.”

In addition to space, redundant power and cooling, Digital Fortress offers redundant 10Gbps+ bandwidth, expert remote-hands, and other value-added support services to complement its core colocation services. Unlike many local and national colocation companies, Digital Fortress owns and maintains the infrastructure equipment at its facilities and has a 24x7x365 dedicated on-site facilities staff. “By retaining complete control of our mission-critical infrastructure, Digital Fortress can assure its customers that all aspects of the datacenter are operated and maintained at the high standards necessary to meet their uptime requirements,” said VP of Operations, Greg Williams.

About Digital Fortress - Digital Fortress is a privately held datacenter colocation company based in Seattle, WA. Since 1994, more than 1,500 customers have entrusted their applications and servers to the mission-critical facilities and network operated by the merged entities of Digital Fortress.
