Colocation Case Study
A Professional Services Firm
A startup tech services firm offers leading ISPs, ESPs, and webmail/Email software providers a targeted, optimized advertising solution to improve advertising revenue streams for webmail traffic.
The Technology Challenge
With the impending launch of this new company, the firm was faced with the decision of whether to purchase and colocate or lease server equipment. After conducting a thorough cost/benefit analysis, they came to the conclusion that the long-term cost of ownership and colocation was a more cost-effective solution. The decision to colocate led them to search for a data center with the highest levels of security, redundancy, reliability, infrastructure, and technical expertise necessary to secure their equipment – a search that ultimately lead them to HopOne.
Our Solution & Benefits to Client
With the help of our experienced team of engineers, the firm was able to quickly and efficiently move and install their equipment at our DCA3 data center in Springfield, VA. Thanks to our depth and breadth of capabilities, the professional services firm was able to efficaciously deploy their Internet operations via a colocation solution, utilizing our technicians working alongside their own as we used our decades of experience to help them improve the redundancy and reliability of their deployment architecture and networking. Because our data center staff are experienced at application development, software/hardware configuration, and especially advanced high availability cluster design and mission critical networking, our customers, like this up-and-coming enterprise, benefit from our capacity to deliver a complete suite, or “stack”, of services and from the many decades of combined knowledge that our staff at each location have, based on working with a number of highly diverse clients in consultative roles, often functioning as the extension of (or escalation for) our clients’ in-house IT team.
