Web Host Digital Forest Moves from Bothell to Tukwila

March 26, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - After seven years in Bothell providing web hosting solutions for companies around the globe, digital.forest has found a solution of its own by moving to the Intergate technology campus near Tukwila.

"digital.forest has more than tripled in size over the past four years. We needed a facility with the capability to handle our continuing growth, while maintaining the reliability and high quality services our customers expect and need," said Kris Bourne, CEO of digital.forest. "With its carrier-quality infrastructure, scalability and access to international fiber-optic networks through all major providers, Sabey Corp.'s Intergate.West was the perfect solution. It was an opportunity we could not pass up."

digital.forest was founded in Seattle in 1994 at the onset of the high technology boom to provide companies a place to create, store, manage and present databases and web applications on the Internet. The company moved to Bothell in 1997. While many dot.com businesses had a meteoric rise -- and even swifter fall when the boom went bust -- digital.forest persevered on the strength of a strong customer base built through the nurturing of collaborative relationships.

"One of the many things that attracted us to Intergate.West was that the Sabey philosophy meshes so well with our own," Bourne said. "They focus on building relationships and delivering real value, and they understand the specific infrastructure and security needs of high-tech service providers. At digital.forest, we are all about service and flexibility -- making sure we address each and every client's unique needs. We enjoy working with a landlord who shares those same values."

digital.forest, which has 25 employees, offers a range of Internet-based services including shared and dedicated hosting, web and database server colocation, website components and development expertise. The company currently serves more than 4,000 customers, whose operations span the entire U.S. and some 50 other countries. digital.forest customers range from small and mid-sized companies all the way up to some of the world's largest corporations, including MasterCard, Apple Computer, Cisco and Alaska Airlines to name a few.

"We are extremely pleased at the improved offering this move provides our clients: a rare combination of high-level, hands-on service, coupled with a true enterprise grade data center facility," said Bourne.

At Intergate.West, digital.forest found a facility with ample free parking, close proximity to Sea-Tac Airport, and much more floor space, power, cooling capacity and other features than were available at their previous location. Combining Intergate.West with Intergate.East, Sabey Corp.'s 76-acre Intergate.Seattle technology campus is the largest multi-tenant Internet complex in the country with more than two million square feet of floor space, 14 buildings, multiple fiber providers and numerous other assets.

"We're very pleased to have digital.forest as a tenant because it demonstrates the versatility and flexibility of our facilities," said John Sabey, Senior Vice President, Real Estate, for Sabey Corp. "We've already proven we can serve very large companies that have expansive needs. The arrival of digital.forest shows we can also meet the needs of small and mid-sized tenants who are attracted to all the features we provide and who see the benefits of working in close proximity to Fortune 100 companies."
