Carpathia Hosting Announces New Virginia Data Center


Delivers Significant Power Availability Resulting in Flexible Power Configurations

June 25, 2008 — Carpathia Hosting, a leading provider of managed hosting services for enterprises and government agencies that require 100% availability, announced today the addition of over 20,000 square feet of raised floor, Tier III data center space at their Blue Ridge Data Center. The new data center combines some of the most cost-effective data center space in the Washington, D.C. region with industry-leading managed hosting and disaster recovery services.

The Blue Ridge Data Center features tremendous power advantages over other regional data centers with two 20-megawatt electrical substations on site that provide unparalleled flexibility and scale. Carpathia Hosting will offer power configurations for both high and low density hosting solutions with the ability to scale to meet ongoing energy demands. The uniqueness of having two electrical substations on site will allow Carpathia to deliver enterprises and federal agencies tremendous flexibility and assurance to meet the most stringent hosting requirements.

Located in Harrisonburg, Va., the Blue Ridge Data Center was built just 100 miles from Washington, D.C. and is outside the 50-mile blast zone and over 50 miles from the nearest nuclear power plant. With a focus on delivering the highest quality and most secure managed hosting services in the industry, Carpathia Hosting holds a number of key certifications, including Department of Defense Information Technology Security Certification and Accreditation Process (DITSCAP) and SAS70 certification. Carpathia is able to meet even the strictest federal and enterprise data center site requirements.

The Blue Ridge Data Center was designed in partnership with DBT Development Group, Total Site Solutions and Carpathia Hosting and was created to meet or exceed the Uptime Institute’s Tier III Data Center classifications. “Rising utility rates and limited availability of power drove us to partner with DBT and Total Site Solutions to develop a data center option that gives our customers an extremely competitive price point for their complex hosting requirements”, explained Brent Bensten, Senior Director of Operations at Carpathia Hosting. “At the same time, we have delivered a facility that meets the strict data center standards government agencies and enterprises require including secure managed hosting and disaster recovery services.”

The Blue Ridge Data Center is designed to address a variety of enterprise and federal hosting needs, as well as the needs of large system integrators. Carpathia Hosting’s Integrator One program, announced earlier this spring, provides system integrators with a broad range of data center design, management and support services in their drive to meet customer requirements, on time and within budget.

The announcement of the new Blue Ridge Data Center continues a period of growth and expansion for Virginia-based Carpathia Hosting, who continues to expand its federal and enterprise clientele in the Washington, D.C. and Phoenix, Ariz. metro areas by providing highly secure and flexible managed hosting services while maintaining aggressive plans aimed at delivering the most cost effective solutions.
