Orlando, FL (March 18th, 2009) – Atlantic.Net, a privately owned high performance Data Center services company, is proud to announce a newly formed partnership with the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Orlando Magic. Under the terms of the agreement, Atlantic.Net will provide the Orlando Magic with a fully redundant server hosting platform in its world class Data Center. As the official server host of the Orlando Magic, Atlantic.Net will support and protect the data operations of the popular NBA franchise.
“We are excited to have joined forces with Atlantic.Net,” said Jason Coleman, Orlando Magic’s VP of Information Technology. “After evaluating a range of managed hosting options to support our data operations, we chose Atlantic.Net because of their superior infrastructure and extensive technical knowledge. Atlantic.Net’s Data Center is very impressive, and their experience in providing a high-level of managed services is what our organization was looking for.”
The Orlando Magic plans a significant deployment of server and network hardware at Atlantic.Net, including a Storage Area Network (SAN), and therefore requires a hosting partner capable of providing the highest quality infrastructure, bandwidth and redundancy. Such large scale, high-performance operations require 100% uptime and the kind of complex, high-end infrastructure found in Atlantic.Net’s Data Center.
“Atlantic.Net respects and admires the Orlando Magic for their innovation and their commitment to staying ahead of the game in technology,” said Marty Puranik, president and CEO of Atlantic.Net. “We are honored that the Orlando Magic put their trust in Atlantic.Net and look forward to working as a team to supply the critical backend infrastructure that guides the ongoing success of the Magic’s operations.”
As a service provider that owns and operates its own network and Data Center, Atlantic.Net provides fully redundant connections to the Internet backbone and guarantees 100% uptime by providing uninterruptible power feeds in a secure and fully redundant Data Center that is staffed 24/7/365.
