Overland Park, Kan. (April 18, 2016) – QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS), an international provider of data center, managed hosting and cloud services, today announced availability of its highly scalable and secure Enterprise Cloud service in the QTS Dallas-Fort Worth mega data center. Previously, the enterprise-class cloud service was available exclusively in the QTS Atlanta-Suwanee and QTS Santa Clara data centers. With the addition of this service in the Dallas-Fort Worth location, QTS customers gain additional geographic diversity and redundancy options.

QTS Enterprise Cloud’s strategic geographic locations allow customers 24x7x365 access to data and the ability to choose where data is housed based on their specific business needs. In addition, by offering a central Enterprise Cloud location, customers in the Dallas Fort-Worth area, as well as the east and west coasts, can create optimized, low latency cloud-based disaster recovery solutions.

Built upon best-of-breed technologies from VMware, EMC and Cisco, QTS Enterprise Cloud is a flexible and secure IaaS platform, with an array of features including virtual data centers (vDC), self-management interfaces, on-line software catalogs, performance-based storage, efficient resource utilization and hybrid connectivity. The QTS Enterprise Cloud is Cisco-certified providing customers faster time to value, assured performance and continuous innovation.

“Our customers have increasing demand for strategically placed cloud and managed services locations, which gives them highly diverse and redundant networking capabilities,” said Randall Poole, Vice President of Product Development – Cloud Services for QTS. “The centralized location of Dallas offers east and west coast enterprises lower latency and improved access to their data, and is an ideal cloud platform for businesses based in the Midwest.”

QTS’ robust portfolio of colocation, cloud and managed hosting solutions enables enterprises to leverage existing IT investments and migrate to the cloud in a strategic, cost-effective way.
