Web hosting company and data center operator FortaTrust announced on Tuesday it has opened its latest data center in Doral, Florida, which expands its market reach in North America, while improving the performance and speed of its network.
Dubbed FTNA5, the Tier 4 data center formally housed the core infrastructure of AT&T, provides close to 20,000 square feet of data center space, and is an immediate benefit to the clients of FortaTrust and its hosting and colocation services.
FTNA5 features six separate external fiber optic vaults for redundant carrier connections, direct access to AT&T, Level 3, PCCW, FiberLight, FPL Fiberlight, Verizon, and Comcast, a FortaTrust owned and operated fiber optic redundant path ring to the Terremark NAP of the Americas, providing access to a range of carriers with a lit presence at this NAP.
The data center also featuers full redundant underground multi-grid 1.5 Megawatt Electrical Feeds, full redundant electrical backup including Liebert Power Systems and Onan diesel generators, transport and IP transit ports from 100Mbps to 10Gbps provided exclusively by Cisco, direct access to the FortaTrust cloud infrastructure, including the FortaTrust Panama data center, and integrated NOC with a 24-hour staff.
“As a result of the opening of FTNA5, we are able to expand our North American services, providing our customers with immediate access to the full suite of FortaTrust products and services,” said Miguel Abood, FortaTrust brand manager. “We now have access to even greater resources to build upon and improve our service level for customers desiring services in North America.”
To celebrate the opening of FTNA5, FortaTrust is offering customers two limited time promotions exclusively for the new location. The first consists of a half a rack of colocation space with 50Mbps of dedicated IP transit and a dedicated server in FortaTrust’s Panama data center for $300 per month.
