July 23, 2008 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Web host DiscountASP.NET (http://www.discountasp.net) has opened a European data center, the company announced recently. The center, located in London, United Kingdom, offers Advanced Windows 2008 hosting, Windows 2003 hosting, and SQL Server hosting. The company partnered with Equinix for state-of-the-art data center infrastructure services and its ASP.NET hosting infrastructure is powered by DELL servers, NetApp SAN storage solutions, and VMware virtualization solutions.
"We have a large European customer base and we wanted to address their concerns of website latency issues due to data transport over long distances, explained DiscountASP.NETs Vice President of Marketing, Takeshi Eto. Our global expansion is a strategic move for us, and now, with our ASP.NET hosting infrastructure available in the United Kingdom, we can better serve our international customers.
For a seamless experience, customers can select the data center location where they desire to host their website as part of our online ordering process and after successful order submission, the website account will be instantly setup, added Eto. And we did not leave out our existing customers; we have a team ready to assist in data center location migration. Our team worked hard for the past year on this project and we are extremely proud to officially announce our European expansion is open for business.
DiscountASP.NET is a Microsoft Gold Certified partner and one of the first hosts to launch Windows 2008 hosting.
