NWN Corporation Opens Geo-Redundant Data Center in California


Sacramento, CA – Santa Clara is home to NWN Corporation’s new state-of-the-art data center. The new data center serves customers who choose to have their IT infrastructure hosted by NWN, an IT solutions provider that has been serving the region for nearly twenty years.

NWN prides itself on offering a local touch with world-class services and technologies. The Santa Clara data center does just that by providing bi-coastal coverage and geo-redundancy for customers who demand reliable availability. That means if a major disaster strikes one data center, another data center can pick up the service with minimal disruption.

NWN has always designed high availability into our NWNComm hosted collaboration services. The addition of this new data center facility allow us to continue building the industry’s most reliable services platform, adding geo-redundancy, disaster recovery, and additional storages capabilities to our already enterprise-class telephony and collaboration service.

“Customers look to NWN to provide them with enterprise-class solutions delivered with a local touch by people they know,” says Drew Phelps, Senior Vice President of NCare Managed Services. “Our new datacenter allows our customers on both coasts to enjoy a service that is both high-performance and redundant.”
The new Santa Clara location also builds on a nationwide footprint, giving West coast customers lower latency than other data centers located in the East. NWN staff operates the Santa Clara data center so customers don’t have to worry about their critical IT infrastructure being farmed out to the lowest bidder.

Brian Gai, Senior Vice President based out of NWN’s Sacramento-area office, share his thoughts on why NWN chose Santa Clara.“NWN is excited to make the investment locally in our California-based data center. We felt it was important to have a state of the art physical site to support our California Hosted Collaboration customers. We hope that this further builds trust in the solution offering as we embark on our journey to be the phone company for the State of California.”

The Santa Clara data center combines technologies from leading manufacturers, including Cisco, EMC, and VMware, with NWN’s own highly-rated services to support customers all over the country with hosted solutions.
