Web hosting company SingleHop announced on Wednesday it will soon open its third fully automated data center in Phoenix, Arizona.
The new data center is significant in that it represents SingleHop’s first expansion into the western-US market. Up until now, the company has only been operating two data centers in Chicago.
In just five years, SingleHop has seen tremendous growth in the hosting space. SingleHop achieved $22 million in revenues with 42 percent EBITDA margins in 2011, continuing its third consecutive year of rapid revenue growth.
The company is currently pre-selling a select portion of its initial inventory, first to existing customers and then new customers, before the data center goes live on May 1st. All pre-sold servers will be deployed on opening day and will be available for use same day.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to open a data center within the Phoenix community,” said Zak Boca, CEO of SingleHop. “The location, size, and capabilities of this facility are all important steps in the rapid growth of our company.”
The Phoenix data center features SSAE 16 Type 2 certification, certified Tier-3 facility (N+2), a highly automated architecture, 10Gbps connectivity to server cabinets, public and private network, and connectivity to Chicago data centers.
SingleHop provides dedicated hosting, cloud hosting, and reseller hosting to clients in 114 countries. The company has made several recent changes to improve its reseller program and customer service, including the revamp of SingleHop’s Tandem reseller program to include a commercial cloud computing platform, and launching an enhanced version of SingleHop’s service level agreement with new objectives and concrete goals.
