"Due to a large influx of IaaS, cloud and IT service provider clientele, FORTRUST, a leading colocation provider headquartered in Denver, has added 2.5 Megawatts of electrical power capacity.
As one of the only cloud and IT managed service neutral data centers in the Rocky Mountain region, these specific industry clientele have found colocation services from FORTRUST to be both reliable and flexible to their specific business needs. Customers that colocate at FORTRUST can select the IT managed service or cloud provider they prefer without any obligation or interference from their colocation provider.
""We believe managed service or cloud service providers shouldn't have to compete with their colocation provider,"" states Rob McClary, Senior Vice President and General Manager at FORTRUST. ""We recognize that many of our customers still need cloud and IT managed services to complement their colocation services, which is why we've started the B2B marketplace.""
Faction, a private, public and hybrid IaaS cloud provider with eight cloud locations in the United States and Europe, chose FORTRUST as a result of a cloud and IT managed services neutral environment.
""Faction is the only cloud provider in the market that is 100% channel centric. Service providers, VARs, and distributors contract to resell Faction's cloud as their own. To maintain this channel neutrality we house our cloud infrastructure in cloud-friendly data centers like FORTRUST,"" explains Luke Norris, CEO and founder of Faction. ""Compounded with a flawless uptime record and fantastic customer service, FORTRUST was an obvious fit for us. Our entire partner ecosystem can resell Faction's cloud to their customers free of competition from the data center.""
