Switch and Data (SDXC), a provider of network-neutral data center and Internet exchange services, has announced that SoftCom Inc., a provider of Web hosting and business communication services has relocated its data center operations to Switch and Data’s 151 Front Street facility in downtown Toronto.
SoftCom has decided to move its operations from a carrier’s data center and expects to benefit from improved cooling capacity to scale its operations, a choice of providers for better redundancy, and improved performance and reliability, which will allow it to focus IT resources on new product development and customer support.
“We chose Switch and Data as our data center provider because it is best in class,” said Mark Salerno, vice president of Technology at SoftCom. “Customers trust us to host their corporate e-mail, Web sites and e-commerce products and expect the highest level of service with no downtime. By working with a leader in Switch and Data, we are able to focus our IT team’s time higher up the service stack, serving customers and developing new offerings to keep them satisfied and loyal.”
Switch and Data’s 151 Front St. Toronto data center provides enhanced resiliency for SoftCom’s infrastructure with resilient and redundant cooling, UPS and generator systems plus 24/7 site security, environmental and infrastructure monitoring, and technical support.
