Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 22, 2011 - Steadfast Networks, a Chicago-based hosting provider specializing in dedicated server hosting and colocation services, today announced a range of managed colocation solutions to complement their existing line of colocated hosting solutions. Available in their flagship Chicago data centers at 350 E Cermak and 725 S Wells, Steadfast’s selection of comprehensive colocation management services is a highly adaptable addition to their already successful hosting services, which marks the next step in the evolution of colocation hosting services. “Our popular selection of colocated hosting services already gives businesses the chance to house their own hardware within professional enterprise-grade facilities,” says Karl Zimmerman, CEO of Steadfast Networks. “We understand that customers are looking for the management services available with a dedicated server. Now, with this new range of colocation plus solutions, our experienced staff can provide expert management for Chicago colocated systems.” Currently, Steadfast Networks is a market leader in colocated hosting with facilities available in Chicago and New York. With a 100% network uptime service level agreement, fully redundant data centers and a wide array of traditional carrier or Ethernet connectivity options, businesses worldwide enjoy the use of carefully controlled facilities to house their IT infrastructures. An unmanaged colocation solution requires a great deal of technical expertise, with all hardware and software operations left in the hands of the business. Steadfast Networks’ new managed colocation hosting solutions allow businesses to concentrate their resources on other aspects of operations, with assurance that expert data center technicians are handling aspects of technical management. “We could not be happier with our managed server hosting at Steadfast,” says Steven Beasley, Director of Digital Media at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. “They answer tickets quicker than anyone, guarantee fantastic uptime and connectivity, and helped us with migrating our site. Add to that DDoS protection and other managed functions, Steadfast consistently goes above and beyond. We are able to just worry about what we host, they take care of everything else. We are hugely impressed.” Designed with flexibility in mind, the choice of managed colocation hosting services now available from Steadfast Networks ranges from a simple backup and restore service to a comprehensive, catch-all solution for full server management. This includes System Administration for repetitive daily tasks and troubleshooting, regular Backups, Proactive Response Server Monitoring and Physical Hardware Assistance, including storage space for spare hardware. Additionally, Steadfast Networks now offers Managed Colocation for Networking Equipment, with configuration and log backups alongside continual maintenance and monitoring. Steadfast Networks is also pleased to offer these services as individual products or combined together for a discounted cost, ensuring that companies can take advantage of the colocation management they require without paying for surplus services. “At Steadfast Networks, we have always been committed to outstanding customer service as the key element of everything we do,” says Zimmerman. “We actively reach out to our customers and understand that no two businesses are the same. That is why we have worked to develop a range of managed colocation solutions that cover very specific elements of server management, as opposed to one flat-rate offering. Companies can get the management they need, without paying for things they do not need. We are proud to provide this incredibly flexible colocation management service at a price that is surprisingly affordable.” After years of success with quality colocation hosting services, this impressive new choice of managed colocation solutions marks the next step in Steadfast Networks’ ongoing focus on colocated hosting with unrivalled customer service levels. With affordable colocation management now available, companies can leave their infrastructure in the hands of the experts while concentrating their attention on business growth and generating revenue.
