Infotech Lead America: ViaWest officially announced that it has opened its Lone Mountain data center facility in North Las Vegas, celebrating the colocation industry’s first-ever North American Tier IV Design Certification.
ViaWest is one of the largest privately-held data center, cloud computing and managed services providers in North America.
The Tier IV designation certifies the Lone Mountain facility is completely fault-tolerant and capable of withstanding an unplanned event such as a fire, explosion or water leak, or failure of any power or cooling equipment, without any impact to IT equipment.
The Lone Mountain data center is an 110,000 square foot-facility, which will offer 74,000 square feet of raised floor space upon completion of final build out. It will also be Energy Star and Green Globe certified.
ViaWest first announced the Lone Mountain facility in the second half of 2012, emphasizing on the data center’s green design elements, robust security and high availability. In October 2012, the facility earned the Uptime Institute’s Tier IV design certification which measures the quality and reliability designed into the Lone Mountain facility.
Since the facility’s launch in December, Lone Mountain has been sought after by customers from the healthcare, marketing, technology, telecommunications and cloud-based services industries for their data management plans. ViaWest’s broad portfolio of IT infrastructure services, including colocation, cloud computing, disaster recovery and managed services solutions is complemented by a customer-centric approach and industry-leading 100 percent availability Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
Utah-based Progrexion is one of the largest lead generation providers in the consumer credit arena. It recently expanded its colocation footprint into the Lone Mountain facility.
