Network aggregator Virtual1 has today announced the launch of a new Co-location solution to its Channel Partners.

The solution is a development for Virtual1 which has previously focused exclusively on its portfolio of network capabilities.

Managing Director Tom O’Hagan explained the move, “Over the past 12 months, we have had many of our Partners turn to us looking for advice on how best to support their customers as they adopt cloud services. Fast, resilient connectivity is a must, but so is secure hosting. By investing in our own Co-location facilities, we can offer our Partners all the advantages of an on-net hosting solution, including the enhanced speed, resiliency and security essential to cloud adoption.”

Virtual1’s Co-location services are provided via a Tier 4 data centre which boasts the latest state-of-the art facilities including multiple backup power capabilities, stringent security and environmental controls. What’s more, the data centre, which is ISO 9001 and BS 7799 compliant, is powered solely by alternative energy to reduce carbon emissions.

O’Hagan continued “Launching this new Co-location solution in response to demand from our Partners is the first step in a number of planned developments for our network and portfolio as a whole, as part of our overall commitment to supporting all the needs of our Partners and their customers.”

Virtual1 are offering free 100M Internet or MPLS ports on all new Co-location orders until 1st December 2011.
