Host NewsDENVER – FORTRUST, Colorado’s leading high-availability data center services provider and colocation facility, today reported that 2008 was a banner year of growth for the Denver data center with the addition of customers, completion of its $30 million expansion project and development of a full suite of managed services offerings.

“We are delighted with our year-end results and expect to maintain and accelerate this momentum into 2009,” said Steve Knudson, chief executive officer of FORTRUST. “Our success may be attributed to the top-notch team at FORTRUST and the investment we’ve made into our facility and systems to ensure that we offer a superior data center experience for our customers.”

The data center has reported growth in nearly every metric including its financial and customer acquisition benchmarks. In 2008, the data center experienced 115 percent revenue growth since the first of the year. FORTRUST achieved this growth due in part to the influx of customers who colocated with the data center. FORTRUST increased its customer base by 83 percent this year.

In addition to its physical expansion, the data center added a full suite of FORTRUST Managed Services including Monitoring, Management and Reporting, Managed Data Services, and Managed Security Services. The services are attracting customers who seek not only high-availability colocation, but critical services to protect their IT infrastructure.

Further, in 2008, FORTRUST completed its $30 million expansion project without incurring downtime for any of its customers. The expansion added 32,000 square feet of “server-ready” raised floor space and is part of an overall $100 million investment in the data center, which included preinstalled infrastructure elements for future expansion. FORTRUST now maintains 48,000 square feet of high-availability colocation space with the ability to scale to 113,000 square feet of raised-floor space in the future.

Finally, FORTRUST invested in programs to increase market awareness of the data center’s offerings including a significant pay-per-click e-campaign as well as launched its new website at The new website allows visitors to view full-motion video tours and learn about the various options for customizing colocation space.

In 2009, the Denver data center expects to continue its progress by adding small, medium and Fortune 500-size customers across a variety of market verticals.
