WowRack – Hosting in the Cloud

I had the pleasure of attending the Wow Technologies 10 year anniversary & open house celebration today. The event was hosted at the brand new Tukwila @CoLoInSeattle facility. Several sponsors including f5 Networks, Datec and TechCafe helped to make the event a fantastic networking opportunity with around 100 guests attending. I was honored to meet one of the founders and managing partner Erwad Osckar while he led a group of 15 guests on a tour of their new state of the art facility. Erwad was incredibly knowledgeable and made sure that all questions were answered. The facility is very clean and organized, you can tell a lot of thought and planning went into the build out of the facility.

WowRack offers Managed, Dedicated and CoLocation services with a compelling value proposition. The tour was very comprehensive but somewhat chilly and noisy.  This is a good thing because they have really covered all the bases.  If you are interested in learning more or seeing for yourself remember that the WowRack team offers site visits and tours of the facility.

Security: Fingerprint and magnetic key card access gives you 7.24.365 access to your equipment. The site is fully monitored via closed circuit video surveillance.

Environmental Controls: Advanced cooling and air circulation systems

Environmental Safety: Monitored Heat Detection, Carbon Monoxide Detection and Fire Suppression systems

Network: 100% fully redundant Cisco enterprise network with BGP and HSRP protocols

Power: Supplied by Seattle City Light and backed up with onsite generators and UPS equipment

Disaster Recovery: Chicago, Surabaya and Jakarta backup and monitoring facilities

I was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the staff. It occurred to me that the facility is a great option for organizations looking for a competitive alternative to other more expensive outsourced data center facilities in the Northwest. Bottom line is these guys built this themselves and they care about your business as much as they care about theirs. When you are laying awake at night wondering if your infrastructure is safe and secure you can rest assured that the WowRack team has you covered. Many organizations are interested in how private cloud computing and virtualization can benefit their organizations but are unsure how to get started. One distinct advantage that the WowRack team provides is complete design, implementation, consultation and ongoing monitoring of your business infrastructure.  In addition they partner with local value added hardware partners like Datec, so you can be assured that even the procurement of hardware will be handled and can give your company a competitive advantage. There are many options to explore but with the flexibility and support this team can provide it will ensure your infrastructure is available to support your business needs.

Thanks to
Ed Kimm for the personal invitation and all the staff that made this an event to remember.
