Lunarpages Selects Latisys for Continued Business Expansion
Provider of Managed Hosting and Colocation Services With 150,000+ Customers Expands Services Platform in Latisys’ State-of-the-Art Facility in Irvine, CA
Latisys, a leading national provider of IT Outsourcing solutions from colocation to cloud, today announced that Web hosting firm Lunarpages, a leading provider of fully managed web hosting services with over 150,000 customers, has expanded its presence on the Latisys platform at the Irvine data center campus by an additional 3,500 square feet of high density (HD) colocation space.
For more than a decade, Lunarpages has focused on providing secure and reliable hosting for a broad range of customers ranging from individuals and small businesses to Fortune 100 corporations. In 2009, Lunarpages turned to Latisys for colocation and managed IT services as a result of customer growth and broader customer use of HD applications. Based on Latisys’ success delivering secure, scalable and reliable IT infrastructure services across its platform, Lunarpages sought to expand its presence at the Irvine facility.
“We continue to be impressed by Latisys’ commitment to investing in state-of-the-art technology, infrastructure, and enterprise cloud services that enable Lunarpages to meet and exceed customer expectations,” said George Natzic, Chief Executive Officer, Lunarpages. “Latisys has proven itself to be a trusted partner, and we look forward to building upon this relationship going forward.”
In Fall 2011 Latisys launched a 93,000 square foot data center (OC2) adjacent to the firm’s existing 50,000 square foot facility (OC1) — uniquely positioning Latisys as the largest data center operator in the Orange County region, with HD power and cooling to accommodate enterprise customer requirements for managed hosting, cloud solutions and data center colocation.
“Lunarpages has built a reputation for delivering secure and reliable hosting, and expanding their presence at Latisys’ Irvine data center campus demonstrates our flexible approach to IT infrastructure services is truly resonating with the dynamic needs of web hosting providers — and their customers,” said Tom Panarisi, Regional VP, West, Latisys. “By offering a full range of services from colocation to cloud, we hope to continue to enhance our relationship with Lunarpages to not only support its growth, but further enable it.”
Lunarpages will be able to leverage several capabilities and services at Latisys OC2:
- Reduced TCO with elimination of capital expenditures – Rather than making capital investments in power, cooling, security and network access often required for a leased space, Lunarpages and other organizations can leverage Latisys’ investments in next-generation technologies, operational expertise and efficiencies, in addition to the data center infrastructure.
- Scalable HD power and N+1 cooling – Latisys supports between 250 kilowatts to 2 megawatts of high-density, N+1 redundant power and efficient cooling with 36″ raised floors and optional hot-aisle or cold-aisle containment for additional efficiencies.
- Network-neutral facility – Located in the heart of the Orange County business community and less than a 10-minute drive from John Wayne Airport (SNA), the Irvine data center campus is geographically positioned in Irvine for convenient access and reliable connectivity, featuring connections to multiple Tier 1 providers.
- State-of-the-art security – Each Latisys data center facility features multi-layered security systems, digital video surveillance, network monitors and a 24x7x365 fully manned Network Operations Center (NOC) that is tied to the national support team.
