Colocation Provider FORTRUST Builds Out Data Center to Meet Increased Cloud and IaaS Demands

By Laura Stotler

The demand for cloud and IaaS solutions is exploding and service providers are beefing up their resources to meet demand. As a result of these increased needs, colocation provider FORTRUST has added 2.5 megawatts of electrical power capacity.

The Denver company offers a cloud and managed services neutral data center, serving a large number of cloud providers and MSPs. Customers may collocate at the data center and select the service provider of their choice while feeling confident the facility has the capacity to meet their needs.

Faction is one of FORTRUST’s largest customers, providing private, public and hybrid IaaS. The company has eight cloud locations throughout the US and Europe and chose FORTRUST specifically because the colocation provider offer a neutral environment for customers.

"Faction is the only cloud provider in the market that is 100 percent channel centric,” said Luke Norris, CEO and founder of Faction. “Service providers, VARs, and distributors contract to resell Faction's cloud as their own. To maintain this channel neutrality we house our cloud infrastructure in cloud-friendly data centers like FORTRUST."

Last month the service provider snagged analytics and data blending company Alteryx as a client, helping to cement its position as a growing colocation provider in the Rocky Mountain region. Alteryx specializes in providing intuitive workflows for data blending, advanced analytics and deep insights. The company, like many of its kind, decided to work with an outside colocation provider to accommodate its growth and expansion, after years of maintaining mission critical systems in house.

FORTRUST also recently announced its B2B Marketplace, specifically designed to help its customers choose MSPs and infrastructure providers. The company offers a catalog of providers with a wide range of services from telecom to data center migration to IT management to cloud and managed offerings.
