SECAUCUS, NEW JEERSEY (12/5/2005) – InterServer, Inc. , a New Jersey based web solutions provider, announced today that it has upgraded its network capacity by adding an additional transit provider, and plans to add additional capacity in the near future.
The new transit provider, Tiscali, was selected because of its large European backbone. The addition increases the number of InterServer’s carriers to 4.
“We have increased the capacity to our POP at 111 8th avenue from 1 to 4 GBPS,” said Chief Technical Officer John Quaglieri. “Tiscali will improve speeds and reliability for our European customers.”
InterServer, Inc., who currently hosts more than 800 servers at its New Jersey facility, hopes the new carrier will allow the company to continue to grow.
“We have rapidly expanded this year, beginning in February 2005 with the installation of a dark fiber ring to New York City,” said Quaglieri. “We are continuing to add capacity so our network can support the increasing needs of our customers.”
Quaglieri said that the company has also installed a custom developed solution to thwart Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, which offers protection for InterServer’s separate IRC network.
The company’s next planned phase of expansion includes PAIX and NYIIX peering, both located in New York City
