TriCore Solutions has Tripled its Internap Data Center Footprint to Support Customer Growth
Managed service provider expands its presence within Internap’s facilities to bolster high-performance networking and infrastructure resources and help customers scale more quickly
ATLANTA – June 16, 2016 – Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a provider of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, today announced that TriCore Solutions, a provider of scalable and reliable managed application, cloud and infrastructure hosting, has expanded its data center presence with Internap to support increased demand from its customers. TriCore has grown its managed services more than 20 percent year-over-year since 2012, prompting the need to invest in additional data center resources.
“We have significantly increased our data center capacity to keep up with the changing needs of the organizations we support and to accommodate their requirements for scalability,” said Peter Salamanca, Vice President of Infrastructure, TriCore. “Expanding our data center footprint with Internap enables us to meet these growing demands as an applications service provider. We have been running and managing larger, more complex infrastructure environments thanks to increased end-to-end capabilities across Internap and TriCore’s breadth of expertise. TriCore is poised for future expansion and continued customer satisfaction that meets the highest levels of service.”
Internap is known for its highly-redundant and scalable data center facilities that support power draws of more than 18 kilowatts in-rack, which allow TriCore customers to grow more efficiently without consuming additional floor space. Based on increasing power consumption and bandwidth demands, these uncompromising performance capabilities were what originally attracted TriCore to Internap as a hosting and colocation provider.
Internap infrastructure is backed by its global Performance IP(TM) connectivity service with multi-carrier redundancy and patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer (MIRO) technology, a crucial component for ensuring high availability and performance for customer applications. Bringing these capabilities to TriCore customers played a huge role in the company’s decision to leverage Internap for its infrastructure resources. TriCore is able to build upon these features when offering its services to customers within Internap’s data centers.
“TriCore is a valued partner to our company,” said Mike Higgins, SVP marketing and customer services, Internap. “As a major data center tenant, TriCore has worked closely with us to realize opportunities that mutually benefit our customers. The sky’s the limit as we grow together, bringing superior application and database management – with TriCore expertise – to companies who rely on our high-performance infrastructure and route optimized network. Collectively, we can provide the right combination of hardware and services to help businesses run smarter and scale more quickly in the digital age.”
Internap, headquartered in Atlanta, operates a global platform of hosting and colocation facilities that spans North America, EMEA and APAC, making future growth opportunities for TriCore more easily realized, particularly with customers across numerous regions within the United States.
