DENVER -- Due to a large influx of IaaS, cloud and IT service provider demand, FORTRUST – a leading co-location provider headquartered in Denver – announced it has added 2.5 megawatts of electrical power capacity.FORTRUST_logo

FORTRUST said customers that co-locate with it can select the IT managed service or cloud provider they prefer without obligation or interference from their co-location provider.

“We believe managed service or cloud service providers shouldn’t have to compete with their co-location provider,” said Rob McClary, FORTRUST’s senior VP and GM.

“We recognize that many of our customers still need cloud and IT-managed services to complement their co-location services, which is why we’ve started the B2B marketplace.”

Faction, an IaaS cloud provider, said it chose FORTRUST because of its cloud and IT-managed services neutral environment.

“Faction is the only cloud provider in the market that is 100 percent channel-centric,” said Luke Norris, Faction founder and CEO. “Compounded with a flawless uptime record and fantastic customer service, FORTRUST was an obvious fit for us.”

FORTRUST Denver is the largest data center in the region with more than 300,000 square feet and 34 megawatts of data center capacity.
