Managed Hosting Company Expands Operations to Meet Increasing Market Demand
Singapore — April 15, 2008 — Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the leading provider of network-neutral data centers and Internet exchange services, announced today that NewMedia Express will expand within the Equinix Singapore Internet Business Exchange (IBX®) center to meet its growing business demands.
NewMedia Express, located in Singapore, Malaysia and other countries in Asia, is a managed hosting solutions provider established in 2002. The company, which is a SGNIC accredited registrar, provides a range of services from domain name registration to web and email hosting, as well as managed dedicated server services. NewMedia Express's clientele includes small and medium sized enterprises as well as individuals from Asia, the South Pacific and the USA.
Utilizing Equinix's data centers, NewMedia Express is able to offer its customers end-to-end Internet-based solutions from a secure and network-rich environment that allows them to pursue an active online presence at an affordable rate, without the intensive capital or manpower required if they were to host and manage their own servers.
The aggregation of networks available at Equinix enables NewMedia Express to base their network on BGP4 multi-home technology where it connects to five diverse local and international upstream providers. This flexibility allows the company to maintain high uptime and the most streamlined route for their data transmission thus reducing latency and enabling high throughput.
“We selected Equinix as our colocation partner for their network-neutrality and stringent SLAs that enables us to stand out among our competitors,” said Alan Woo, CTO & Co-founder of NewMedia Express. “Small and medium-sized enterprises value reliable hosting solutions as much as large corporations and with the popularity of blogs and other personal sites, savvy individual users are also demanding the better uptime and service quality that NewMedia Express represents.”
