DAILYHOSTNEWS, December 15, 2011 – KnownHost LLC announced today that it expanded its VPS offerings to include a New Jersey-based datacenter. The addition joins its already-established locations in Texas and California, and is the company’s third major datacenter brought online in six years.
The development comes on the heels of the firm’s news earlier this year that it now monitors 201 physical servers, placing it as the number-one webhost among the HyperSpin rankings for reliability and uptime. According to the newest figures, KnownHost achieves a 99.967% uptime ranking, exceeding the 99.954% benchmark that HyperSpin considers to be a reliable webhost.
“Our growth is allowing us to rapidly invest in more managed virtual private server offerings,” said Justin Sauers, CEO at KnownHost LLC. “Adding our third datacenter allows our customers to have more flexibility and reinforces our commitment to providing the best products and the most reliable support in the industry.”
Congruent with technological trends in managed VPS systems, KnownHost is recognizing the benefits of investing in the use of additional datacenters. The Data Center Journal noted in June that according to the Uptime Institute’s inaugural datacenter-industry survey, “nearly two-thirds of respondents (60%) expect to upgrade/renovate an existing datacenter or construct a new data center within the next three years.”
As such, KnownHost has selected a leading datacenter provider in Piscataway, New Jersey, that was ranked by Inc. magazine as a fastest-growing company in America, that holds a certification for operating effectiveness, and that has the resources for world-class support within the surrounding New York City metro area.
KnownHost has been consistently ranked as a top Managed VPS Host in the HyperSpin rankings over the previous four years. It also received a 2011 Editors’ Choice Award from the Web Hosting Directory and Review site FindMyHost.com, which bases its recognition on both editor-level and consumer-level reviews.
