Internap and Enzu, the infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) hosting provider, have announced a multi-year colocation agreement in INAP’s Los Angeles data center.
Enzu’s hybrid cloud and colocation computing platform provides 100 percent uptime across its network infrastructure, the company said, with continuous availability and functioning. INAP is offering Enzu a high-performance, flexible and scalable data center solution in the context of a national platform with a strong track record of reliability and access to leading enterprises, cloud providers and internet peering exchanges.
“To properly support our customers’ growth, it was critical that we find a facility in the right location with the correct architecture, capacity and scalability for rapid, high-density, high-bandwidth deployments, and INAP’s purpose-built data center fit the bill,” said Steve Empie, CEO of Enzu. “The facility’s design allows us to step in and deploy a wide variety of customers at the required 4-10Kw level without having to make modifications. INAP offers us access to dark fiber, allowing a multi-terabit DWDM solution, while maintaining not just the redundancy of being outside LA’s power grid but a very strongly built environment that can sustain power in an outage, which has frequently happened in this geography. INAP is the right partner to serve our customers’ needs, and we look forward to a quick implementation.”
INAP’s data-center services feature a concurrently maintainable design to eliminate single points of failure and ensure reliability, as well as on-site data center engineers, advanced security features and remote management self-service tools.
“INAP is pleased to welcome Enzu as a customer in our data center,” said Mike Higgins, SVP sales and customer service – colocation business unit. “Companies in the rapidly growing cloud vertical recognize INAP data centers are a good fit for their infrastructure needs due to our patented, route-optimized connectivity to the cloud exchanges, high power density and agility to rapidly stand up footprint which enables them to hyper-scale their cloud infrastructure as they grow.”
