Peak® (formerly PeakColo) has announced its consistent Top 10 ranking on CloudSleuth, an application designed to help users understand the reliability and consistency of popular Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud providers. CloudSleuth’s performance data is algorithmically checked and filtered to ensure accuracy and consistency.
Peak’s cloud ecosystem includes eight cloud locations spanning the U.S. and U.K. Its fastest growing cloud location in 2014 is its Chicago node, located in AlteredScale’s Chicago data center. Over the last 12 months, CloudSleuth has consistently recognized Peak’s Chicago cloud node as a high performing and highly available cloud platform across its global rankings. Because of the growth Peak has experienced in the Chicago area, Peak expanded its data center footprint with AlteredScale 25% over the past year, increasing power and space at the facility.
AlteredScale provides flexible data center solutions from a 25,000 sq. ft. carrier-neutral facility housed at 601 W Polk, Chicago. This data center is Tier III compliant and SSAE 16 Type II certified. Thanks to this combination of redundancy and compliance, AlteredScale can easily accommodate the stringent IT requirements of enterprise and technology companies.
“Chicago is a big market for Peak and because of our growing channel base there, it has spurred 25% growth year over year,” comments Luke Norris, CEO and founder of Peak. “AlteredScale, a long term Peak partner, reinforces our model of low latency design and of connecting our partners and ultimately their end-users to the nearest cloud point of presence. This all works to enhance our performance and reliability; and furthers our high rankings on CloudSleuth and other cloud computing rating entities.”
“AlteredScale’s fault tolerant infrastructure makes it a perfect location for supporting mission critical applications and services,” states Kevin Francis, president of AlteredScale. “We applaud Peak’s success in this region and look forward to ensuring its cloud platform is highly secure and scalable with direct access to ample space, power and reliable connectivity.”
