LOS ANGELES, CA – Dedicated server, cloud hosting and colocation service provider, Hivelocity, continues its impressive growth with the acquisition of IaaS provider Rackalley.com. The addition of RackAlley’s assets and data centers provide Hivelocity with a turn-key presence in Los Angeles, California. This announcement comes on the heels of Hivelocity launching its second data center in Tampa in response to increasing demand in that market. Since 2002, Hivelocity has earned a reputation as a premier cloud hosting, infrastructure services and dedicated server provider helping it amass customers in over 130 countries.

“We surveyed our customer base earlier this year and Los Angeles was high on their list of places they wanted us to expand to” explained Rick Nicholas, VP of Colocation at Hivelocity. “In addition to Los Angeles, New York City was right there at the top of the list. As part of our national expansion strategy we intend to seek opportunities in New York City with the hopes of an announcement there before the end of this year.”


The new facilities in Los Angeles will open on September 15, 2017. Considered two of the top locations in Los Angeles, the facilities will be located at 1 Wilshire and 600 Grand. The locations will be interconnected via redundant dark fiber rings operating as one facility, with the ability to operate independently as needed. One Wilshire was recently named one of the top ten network connected buildings in the world by DataCenterKnowledge.com and boasts that 1/3rd of all traffic between the US and Asia travels through it.

All employees from Rackalley.com will be retained in the transition, as Hivelocity remains committed to offering a superior customer experience in the Los Angeles hosting market. Hivelocity plans to continue the course that contributed to earning a Tampa Bay Business Journal Fast50 award in other markets across the United States.

PHOENIX, AZ – PhoenixNAP®, a global IT services provider offering cloud, bare metal dedicated server, colocation, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, today announced Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) enhancements. Enabling even more effective profiling of incoming traffic, advanced reporting and easier resource scaling, the new solution builds upon phoenixNAP’s existing security infrastructure.

With DDoS attacks on a constant rise, businesses need to constantly ramp up their capabilities to defend against the most aggressive attacks. According to Akamai’s State of the Internet/Security Report for Q2 2017 , which analyzed data from 230,000 servers in over 1600 networks globally, the volume of DDoS attacks grew 28% since Q1 this year. The report also indicates that the evolution in the DDoS field shows no sign of slowing down and that businesses are to expect new, more sophisticated threats in future.


PhoenixNAP’s continuous work on improving its DDoS mitigation solution supports its rapidly growing global network services and provides its customers with an additional layer of protection to improve their data availability on a different level from a connectivity perspective.

“Our DDoS enhancements have undergone multiple phases of maturity and there are more to come in the near future,” says Ian McClarty, President of phoenixNAP. “In the current, fourth phase, we increased overall capacity, which allows us to handle significantly bigger attacks and address smaller single-server attacks that do not have an impact on overall network performance, but that can be detrimental to a single client.”

PhoenixNAP’s enhanced DDoS technology provides an additional layer of mitigation to successfully block a greater diversity of network attacks. The new solution is more adaptive and can scale more systematically than most traditional technologies, which provides greater efficiency to phoenixNAP’s clients.

The enhancements include more granular data scrubbing to improve the overall network health and make specific clients less prone to attacks. In addition to expanded mitigation capacities, an improved inspection center offers more detailed insights into attack-associated data, while enhanced API customization enables a more robust attack overview.

“A lot of companies that we work with are under heavy security regulations and our DDoS enhancements are another way for us to respond to their requirements,” adds William Bell, VP of Products at phoenixNAP. “We can now better address the growingly aggressive DDoS landscape, which has become a harsh reality for an enormous number of businesses. By improving the intelligence on attack strength and location, we empower our clients to better understand the threats and make more informed decisions about their data protection strategies.”

PhoenixNAP’s DDoS mitigation services support a wide range of solutions, from bare metal dedicated servers to private and hybrid cloud deployments, allowing phoenixNAP’s clients to fully leverage the multitude of phoenixNAP’s global IT services.

PhoenixNAP is a Premier Service Provider in the VMware Cloud Provider™ Program and a Platinum Veeam Cloud & Service Provider partner. PhoenixNAP is also a PCI DSS Validated Service Provider and its flagship facility is SOC Type 1 and SOC Type 2 audited.

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA – Iron Mountain Incorporated® (NYSE: IRM), the global leader in storage and information management services, today announced the opening of the first of four planned data centers in Northern Virginia, the nation’s largest and fastest growing data center market. Built to serve the stringent security and compliance requirements of enterprises, cloud service providers and government agencies, Iron Mountain’s new data center is a 165,000 square-foot, 10.5-megawatt multi-tenant and cloud facility located in Prince William County. Northern Virginia marks Iron Mountain’s fifth U.S. data center market, joining Boston, Denver, Kansas City and Western Pennsylvania.

Iron Mountain commemorates the opening today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony including Governor Terry McAuliffe, U.S. Representatives Robert Wittman, Gerry Connolly, and Kevin Yoder, Virginia Senator Jeremy McPike, and Prince William County Supervisor Jeanine Lawson.


“This data center, like our others, is especially suited for heavily regulated enterprises, cloud providers and government agencies who seek a highly secure, highly compliant environment for hosting their data center operations,” said William L. Meaney, president and CEO of Iron Mountain. “With this new facility, we enter the hottest data center market in the U.S. and add further capacity for serving existing and new governmental customers, a group where our brand for security, service and compliance resonates particularly well. Together with our existing data centers and recent acquisitions, this data center helps to further accelerate our fastest growing business segment.”

“Since 2006, more than 6,600 new jobs and over $11.8 billion in investments have been announced in Virginia’s data center industry and we are thrilled to add this important project to that roster,” said Governor McAuliffe. “We are honored to have such a dynamic global leader like Iron Mountain continue to invest in the Commonwealth aiding our efforts to build a new Virginia economy.”

Iron Mountain invested over $80 million in the first phase of this data center, which opens as an Uptime Institute Tier III certified facility for design and construction. And, like other Iron Mountain data center facilities, this new data center is designed to serve organizations with exacting service delivery and comprehensive compliance requirements, and supports key standards such as ISO 27001, FISMA High, PCI-DSS Level 1, HIPAA, SOC 2 Type II and SOC 3.

The new data center also opens with more than half of its first phase capacity pre-leased, including customers like Virtustream, a Dell Technologies business. Virtustream is the enterprise-class cloud company that is trusted by organizations worldwide to migrate and run their mission-critical applications in the cloud. The company selected Iron Mountain based on the security, comprehensive compliance support and scalability of the facility to serve its regulated customer base and support its growth projections.

With two additional phases to come in this first data center and plans to develop three other facilities on the campus, Iron Mountain’s total investment for the site is expected to be over $350 million. The 83-acre campus design ensures efficient long-term customer scalability for a total of 60 megawatts. Iron Mountain is participating in Virginia’s data center tax program which helps provide long-term visibility into operating costs and lower total costs to customers.

“The opening of Iron Mountain’s new facility in Prince William marks a new age of data development in Virginia,” said Representative Wittman. “When this project is finished, Iron Mountain will have four state-of-the-art secure data facilities in Manassas – contributing to our local economy. With already 173 employees in Virginia, I am excited to welcome them to a new area of Virginia’s First District and to see what opportunities lie ahead. The work they do is critical to preserving private information of people and businesses across Virginia and the Nation.”

“Congratulations to Iron Mountain on the opening of this state-of-the-art data center,” said Representative Connolly. “The 83-acre Prince William County campus is a great addition to our region’s growing IT footprint. Northern Virginia has quickly solidified its role as the Silicon Valley of the East and a leader in fostering the technologies of tomorrow thanks to companies like Iron Mountain.”

“The tech sector continues to grow in Northern Virginia, and these are the jobs of the future – innovation, research, cybersecurity,” said Senator McPike. “I am pleased to welcome Iron Mountain to Prince William County, as a key piece of that technology-focused approach to growing our economy.”

“Today we congratulate Iron Mountain on their latest expansion in the data center industry,” said Corey A. Stewart, Chairman, Prince William Board of County Supervisors. “This is indeed an important milestone and a testimony to Prince William County’s strong business proposition in that industry, one which aptly satisfies the need for innovative technology, security, efficiency and reliability, while providing sustainable opportunities for a qualified and job-ready workforce, all set within an aesthetically pleasing environment.”

“Iron Mountain is opening what we believe is one of the most compelling data center offerings in Northern Virginia,” said Mark Kidd, senior vice president and general manager of Iron Mountain Data Centers. “Our new campus provides superior physical security, lower power costs and a reduced tax structure compared to locations locally and nationally and delivers on our customers’ high standards for performance. Iron Mountain would like to thank the State of Virginia and Prince William County as well as our development partners, customers and dedicated employees for their contributions to this successful launch.”

In addition to the ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the data center launch, Iron Mountain held an open house event co-sponsored by Burns and McDonnell and Donwil / Vertiv on September 14th attended by members of the local business community.
