QTS data centers in Richmond, VA and Dallas, TX are key to geo-redundant commitment
Richmond, VA – Simplicity VoIP, a Richmond-based VoIP and Hosted PBX provider, has decided to stay local with its choice of data center provider to host the new netsapiens VoIP platform. As part of the year long process researching new VoIP platforms, Simplicity VoIP leadership also worked to identify the ideal data center to house and support its new switch. QTS was among the data centers evaluated. With world-class data centers located globally and in nine states, QTS has connectivity solutions with access to 500+ carrier networks and 24/7/365 premium customer support.
As a Richmond-based VoIP provider, the desire was to stay local and support community vendors when positioning the main soft switch. This priority aligned with QTS’s state-of-the-art data center that is located near the Richmond airport. With best-of-breed technologies, formidable security protocols, as well as dual power feeds and back-up generators, QTS’s 100% uptime guarantee cinched the deal. In addition to the Richmond location, a second switch presence will be in service at QTS’s Dallas, TX site. This configuration provides Simplicity VoIP’s clients a true geo-redundant VoIP solution – a significant differentiator in hosted business phone marketplace.
“We are pleased to deepen our relationship with QTS and to become a client.” said Ben Humphreys, Simplicity VoIP CEO. “Richmond is fortunate to have this caliber of data center and cloud expertise in our backyard. It was a logical decision to select QTS as our provider and was made even easier with their Dallas site to execute our commitment of a fully geo-redundant solution.”
