Phoenix, AZ, May 16, 2006 -- Sterling Network Services, LLC, a leading provider of data center and colocation services, announced today that it has expanded its Phoenix data center complex by more than 45,000 square feet. The expansion enables Sterling to continue to meet the growing needs for outsourced data center space for many of the Fortune 1000 companies.
The new space increases the capacity at Sterling's Phoenix colocation data center by more than half a city block. "This expansion allows us to continue to offer the highest quality, most secure data center services at the most reasonable costs. We are the preferred solution for enterprise companies looking to move data centers, maintain the highest levels of service and uptime, and save money," said Anthony Wanger, Managing Director of Sterling Network Services. "Sterling can meet and exceed any data center or colocation requirement at virtually any level of security and redundancy."
The newest data center space is some of the highest grade and most reliable ever offered in an "internet gateway" building. As an Internet gateway, Sterling offers carrier neutral access to over forty telecommunications and Internet service providers, including all of the largest providers in North America.
The new space is protected by Emerson Network Power, using their Liebert technologies equipment, including the new Liebert DS precision cooling system, the Liebert 610 UPS systems and Power Distribution equipment. "The Sterling Network Services application uses the Liebert DS system to precisely control temperature, air quality and humidity in the controlled environment of their data center," said George Samson, Director of Sales Western Region, Emerson Network Power. "Sterling chose to protect their operations with the Liebert 610 UPS, the most field proven UPS platform on the market with more than 3 million hours MTBF, a fact that Sterling Network Services' clients require."
The raised floor data center was constructed to 150+ watts per foot, and 2N+ configuration for superior redundancy. A portion of the space is comprised of dedicated data centers for enterprise use, each designed to meet and exceed Tier 4 and Tier 3 data center standards.
Sterling Network Services enables companies to focus on their business rather than building data centers. Sterling provides cost effective business continuity plans for "always on" enterprises, which are impervious to internal and/or external threats. Sterling currently operates 2N+1, 2N+2, N+2 and N+1 power systems.
The Sterling Network Services telecom data center environment is the only one of its kind in Arizona, and because Arizona is significantly less susceptible to natural disasters than other parts of the country, Sterling Network Services is the chosen outsourced data center provider to the Fortune 1000.
The Sterling Network Services data center complex is one of the world's elite data center management facilities, with an array of carrier options and connectivity unsurpassed anywhere in North America. Sterling Network Services is focused on data center services as its primary business and owns and operates the carrier-neutral complex for single-point-of-contact control and accessibility.
