You need a home to live. Similarly, your website too needs a place to live, or to be specific, it needs web hosting. Without it, your website will not work. Choosing the right web hosting solution may seem a little difficult, since there are several choices available like shared hosting, cloud hosting, Virtual Private Server (VPS) and Dedicated Server. If you are an established business with decent traffic on your website and have concerns for security, and uptime, then you should go with either VPS or dedicated server. These hosting options vary in terms of performance level, scalability, as well as cost – but how are they exactly different? To get the wisdom in your choice, you need to understand the main differences between VPS and dedicated server so that you can determine which option suits best for your business. Read on.

Dallas, TX – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, connectivity and managed services, announces that Southern Telecom, Inc. (STI), a subsidiary of Southern Company, has completed its fiber connectivity into DataBank’s ATL1 data center, located in Atlanta.

The STI partnership adds to DataBank’s long list of network access providers, increasing true carrier-neutral access to DataBank’s customers, all the while enabling STI to provide network access to those customers. ATL1 already houses Southern Crossroads, which provides high-speed connectivity to research and education sites throughout the southeast. With the addition of STI, DataBank becomes an even more integral hub for regional connection and peering in the region.


“We are pleased to welcome STI into the facility,” states said Brandon Peccoralo, ATL1 General Manager. “The arrangement bolsters DataBank’s position in the attractive technology-driven market. Atlanta continues to be a great fit for DataBank, given the region’s large base of enterprise companies looking for high-quality data center services.”

In addition, the center facilitates a newly carved out relationship between STI and a third player, Linode, the world’s largest independent cloud provider.

“We are excited to work with DataBank, which enables us to provide fiber connectivity to Linode. This new connectivity will also provide DataBank customers an additional option for network providers,” comments Steve Laufersweiler, Carrier Account Executive for STI.

SANTA CLARA, CA – Colovore, the Bay Area’s leading provider of high-performance colocation for high-performance computing infrastructure, today announced that it has expanded again and now has 3.5 MW of high-density capacity currently available in supply-constrained Silicon Valley. Colovore continues its rapid growth by providing unrivaled power densities in Bay Area colocation, exceptional uptime and service quality, and a cost-effective, pay-by-the-kW pricing model. With Silicon Valley data center vacancy rates at historic lows near 5% and a lack of suitable land constraining development, Colovore’s expansion adds much needed high-quality colocation capacity to the marketplace.

Based on the ever-increasing power and cooling capacities required by modern, data and processing-intensive servers, Colovore continues to innovate its market-leading high-density offering. It now offers 50 kW cabinet capacities cooled by its traditional rear-door heat exchangers, and also supports direct liquid cooling (liquid to the platform or to the chip) for the highest-density server deployments. Its minimum customer power commitment per cabinet is only 8 kW, supporting a wide range of IT requirements.


“We are seeing a major change in colocation requirements, driven by incredible advances at the chip and component layers in modern servers,” stated Sean Holzknecht, President and Co-Founder of Colovore. “GPUs, dual CPUs, and flash storage architectures supporting the explosion in A.I., Big Data, and HPC applications and services require data center environments with 10-20x the amount of power and cooling per cabinet compared to only a few years ago–1 kW of draw per modern server rack unit is now common. We are proud of our high-density, liquid-cooled colocation facility which allows our customers to fully-pack their server cabinets and optimize their IT footprints while significantly lowering TCO.”

About Colovore

DALLAS, TX – DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity, and managed services, announces today that it has reached the 100 percent renewable energy mark at one of its Minneapolis, MN, data centers, MSP2. The milestone was reached by entering into an agreement with utility provider Dakota Electric Association to purchase 100% renewable energy to meet all of MSP2’s 6MW of critical IT load for the next five years. The renewable power is being provided through Dakota Electric’s Wellspring program, which will procure the power from clean wind sources provided by Great River Energy.

DataBank had already begun preparing to offset a majority of MSP2’s power requirements when it was approached by its largest customer in the data center, a F1000 enterprise software company. As part of its own CSR initiative, the customer had the goal of reducing its environmental impact across the company, and asked DataBank if it was possible to use renewable sources for all its power consumption in MSP2. DataBank then made the decision to purchase enough green power from Dakota Electric to cover 100% of MSP2’s needs. Now that customer, and all other MSP2 customers, will be powered by 100% renewable wind energy.


For DataBank, this represents the third such milestone – as both of its IND1 and IND2 data centers in Indianapolis are powered by 100% renewable energy sources – and fits into DataBank’s larger commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and reducing environmental impact across its facilities.

Last year, U.S. based data centers used more than 90 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, representing up to three percent of all U.S. electricity consumed, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. The collaboration between DataBank and Dakota Electric reduces the carbon footprint of a significant data center in the Minneapolis market.

“Green energy and sustainability are critical aspects of DataBank’s Data Center Evolved™ strategy,” states Kevin Ooley, DataBank’s President and CFO. “This milestone reached at our Minneapolis data center is a major step toward enhanced energy efficiency across DataBank’s portfolio and a further example of how we enhance the data center experience for our customers.”

“Data centers need tremendous amounts of reliable and cost-effective electricity to power their servers, storage equipment, back-ups and power cooling infrastructure,” said Greg Miller, Dakota Electric’s president and CEO. “We’re excited to have DataBank in our Wellspring program and look forward to providing them with 100% renewable energy to meet their green initiative goals.”
