Host Virtual Opens New Datacenter in Frankfurt
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
Customers of Host Virtual now have entry into Germanyâ€™s central location in Europe and its booming connections into financial institutions, cloud services and internet service providers.
Located about 20 kilometers from Frankfurtâ€™s airport, Host Virtualâ€™s new data center will be located at the Interxion campus, which is home to seven independently operated but interconnected facilities. The Interxion campus is completely carrier- and cloud- neutral. It also offers a variety of connectivity options and scalable infrastructure.
Interxionâ€™s Frankfurt campus is ISO 27001, BS 25999 and PCI DSS-certified. It also features 24/7/365 security, uninterruptible power supplies and generators to ensure uptime even in the event of power loss, and an on-site team.
The facility allows Host Virtual access to over 400 carriers in Germany, as well as DE-CIX, Germanyâ€™s largest internet exchange and the largest exchange point in the world, in terms of peak traffic, with a maximum throughput of 3.4 terabits per second. In addition to Frankfurt, DE-CIXâ€™s exchange points can also be found at Hamburg, Munich, New York and Dubai.
"Germany is one of the biggest internet markets in Europe and its centralized location in the continent means that it offers some of the best ways to connect to other countries in the EMEA," said Kris Slevens, Director of Host Virtualâ€™s customer experience. "Interxionâ€™s scalability options give us the ability to stay one step ahead of our customersâ€™ needs and the DE-CIX exchange gives us fast access into Germany."
In addition to cloud hosting and BGP/Anycast services, Host Virtual offers load balancing, and worldwide CDN support with its cloud hosting infrastructure as a service, or IaaS. Over 300 operating system templates can be deployed by the companyâ€™s customers to its data centers that utilize native dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 support.
