Contegix Beefs Up Cloud, Managed Hosting Capabilities with Full Data Center Migration

Cloud and managed hosting provider Contegix has finished a full data center migration to a new facility in St. Louis. The company’s local operations are now officially consolidated under one roof.

Contegix’s main business is providing Go Beyond support for its various services. These include custom and strategic cloud solutions as well as colocation and managed hosting for enterprise applications and infrastructure.

The enhanced data center is located in the recently renovated Digital Realty Trust building in St. Louis. It features N+1 backup power, multiple UPS modules configured for N+1 redundancy and energy efficient down flow cooling units. Customers may configure their equipment however they like and the facility allows for specialized equipment and configurations.

Contegix is now offering an upgraded backup infrastructure thanks to the migration, and will also be providing object storage and IPv6. The service provider is also offering enhanced flexibility for customers with ad hoc network requirements and hybrid environments comprised of cloud, colocated and managed infrastructure. Additional benefits of the data center migration include more network capacity and capabilities, like faster connectivity and reduced hops to Europe, Asia and Australia. Contegix is also offering reduced bandwidth and cross-connect costs along with increased redundancy of managed private networks and faster managed backups and restorations.

"As a company, we made the strategic decision to perform a major upgrade of our data center infrastructure and core network to better serve our clients," said Matthew Porter, CEO of Contegix. "Our ability to provide Go Beyond service and support to our customers will be strengthened even further with this infrastructure upgrade."

According to Floyd Marinescu, CEO of Contegix customer InfoQ, the upgrade has improved his company’s site speed and response times tremendously. "Now InfoQ is running blazing fast, it responds faster than CNN or Facebook (News - Alert),” said Marinescu. “This improvement was unexpected and greatly appreciated, and we are not being asked to pay anything extra for it."
