IaaS provider ServerHub has launched services in the Seattle area this week to meet growing customer demand for a location in the Pacific Northwest.
Located in the heart of Seattle, ServerHub’s new data center builds on its 2016 plan to expand operations across the US in an effort to meet the needs of its enterprise clients who are continually looking to operate dedicated, cloud infrastructure, and disaster recovery services out of multiple geographical locations.
ServerHub’s Seattle location is the latest US city in its expansion, following its recent expansion to Chicago, announced in January. ServerHub has locations in Phoenix, Chicago, Dallas and now Seattle.
“Our customers have given us a lot of feedback on the locations that matter most to them. Seattle was a clear winner for our customer base. ServerHub is proud to call Seattle home for our Pacific Northwest Operations,” ServerHub CEO John Brancela said in a statement. “This facility will allow us to meet the ever evolving demands of our customers and provide decreased latency to important markets especially in Asia, due to the proximity of Seattle as well as the strategic transit partners in that location that cater to the Asian markets.”
Seattle is of course is a key location for many tech companies, not only Microsoft and Amazon but also smaller startups looking to access more affordable talent as the median engineering salary in Seattle is $150,000 compared to San Francisco’s $175,000.
According to ServerHub, General Availability of its IronMetal Dedicated Servers, IronGrid Big Data and IronGrid is scheduled for Feb. 22, 2016. The location will also offer ServerHub’s newest addition to its IronMetal portfolio, the Intel E3 v5 Processor Family, offering double the memory per E3 Bare Metal Server over its predecessors.
