Atlantic.Net has announced its new HIPAA data center hosting facility in Northern Virginia is now up and running and the company is now providing the full range of hosting services and solutions through the new facility.
In response to demand for its cloud and managed services, Atlantic.Net has invested significant resources to improve its infrastructure and has embarked upon a major expansion of its data center footprint.
The new Ashburn, VA data center is one in a string of new facilities that have been set up to meet the needs of the company’s rapidly growing client list. The Ashburn facility is located in Northern Virginia close to Washington D.C., and has historically been a hotbed of innovation.
The new facility is protected by 24/7 manned security, state-of-the-art-security systems, biometric access controls, 2N generator power capacity, a N+2 cooling system, and the facility has been audited and has demonstrated compliance with HIPAA, HITECH, and SSAE 18 SOC1 and SOC2. The new data center joins those in New York, Dallas, Toronto, San Francisco, London, and Orlando.
The launch of the new data center comes shortly after the announcement of the release of Atlantic.Net Secure Block Storage (SBS). SBS allows customers to attach extra storage to their cloud servers to meet their application, database, and backup storage needs and scale workloads more easily.
SBS allows customers to increase storage on the fly and move data between cloud servers and includes a 100% uptime guarantee. The new service has been developed for mission-critical applications that require highly scalable, robust block storage and for running database queries that require low latency and high performance.
