Netriplex announced today that it has expanded its workforce by 30 percent since January 1 to better support its rapidly expanding customer base.
Asheville, NC (PRWEB) April 30, 2009 — Netriplex LLC, a global datacenter provider headquartered in Asheville, NC, announced today that it has expanded its workforce by 30 percent since January 1 to better support its rapidly expanding customer base. Plainly, the current economic recession is not affecting all industries equally. Independent datacenters, in fact, are growing. In its April forecast, market research firm Forrester says that it expects IT outsourcing sales to increase by 2.1 percent in 2009 and 6.5 percent in 2010.
Chief Technology Officer at Netriplex, Jonathan Hoppe, comments: “Despite a difficult economy, the unabated growth of the Internet for social networking, streaming media, software as a service and other application delivery continues to drive demand for more datacenter space and power. Rather than invest significant capital and operating costs in private data centers, businesses are increasingly outsourcing to independent datacenters like Netriplex who offer high value in both dedicated and colocation hosting.”
Netriplex made significant investments in its infrastructure in 2008, making it one of the most robust independent managed datacenter companies of its size. “Facility space at the Asheville datacenter was enlarged by 50 percent, power infrastructure was tripled, network capacity was enhanced to a new ceiling of 480 Gigabits-per-second, and bandwidth providers were increased to 13 and counting, Now we’ve expanded 30 percent in both sales and support engineering staff,” explains Chief Operating Officer, John Thompson. “With that level of robustness and redundancy, Netriplex remains a value leader in our industry.”
Founded in 1999, Netriplex is a global provider of IT infrastructure hosting and business continuity solutions. Its new 15,000 sq. ft. SAS70 Type II certified data center in Asheville, NC, offers web hosting, grid computing, server colocation and disaster recovery office space in a state-of-the-art and completely redundant environment designed for 100% uptime. Netriplex operates other datacenters in Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, San Jose, Seattle and London, U.K.
