MarquisNet, Colo5 Now Offer Coast-To-Coast Co-Location, Disaster-Recovery Services in Joint-Operating Agreement

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 25, 2010) - Las Vegas-based MarquisNet LLC, a leading provider of next-generation co-location and disaster-recovery services in Nevada and California, today announced a joint-operating agreement with Colo5, one of Florida's largest independent data center operators. Enterprise clients of the two companies can now enjoy protection and peace of mind by having the option of redundant data and business continuity centers in three major U.S. metropolitan locations coast-to-coast.

Under the agreement, MarquisNet and Colo5 will jointly support clients of both companies that want to protect and secure their mission-critical equipment in more than one data center. Together, the two companies have state-of-the-art co-location centers in Las Vegas, Southern California, and Jacksonville, Fla.

Colo5 clients now can access MarquisNet's end-user disaster recovery solutions, which include co-location hot and warm sites, voice and data connectivity, and professional services to aid with disaster recovery. MarquisNet's customers can receive the same services and support in Colo5's state-of-the-art Florida data center.

"Whether it's natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, blackouts or manmade events, clients of both our companies can now take advantage of our co-location, recovery and business continuity solutions," Paul Reynosa, MarquisNet's director of new business development, said. "Both companies' clients now have co-location centers available in diverse inland locations nationwide. Our customers and prospects can develop localized and regional disaster recovery strategies that make sense."

According to Colo5 CEO Doug Recker, "This partnership gives our valued clients belt-and-suspenders protection against virtually any disaster scenario. It's exciting for us because it allows us to expand our service offerings and provide even greater levels of redundancy and support to our customers."

All MarquisNet and Colo5 data centers are designed to meet the highest industry standards. They are SAS 70 certified, redundant 2N+1 or N+1, high-security network facilities with 24/7 access to equipment. They feature ultra-reliable uninterruptible power supplies for continuous availability, with generator backup to ensure the highest standards of power stability.
