Emory University Signs 10 Year Deal Valued at up to $10 Million; Will Provide Real Time Backup of Data to AtlantaNAP in the New Data Center Expansion

/PRNewswire/ -- Emory University signs a 10 year, up to $10 Million deal with AtlantaNAP (www.atlantanap.com) to provide backup services for the university and hospital systems. Emory University will provide real time backup of their data to the servers in the Atlanta colocation facility. Emory has extended their 10G ring from Atlanta Gas Light Networks to the facility for high capacity online backup and archival.

AtlantaNAP is a premier Atlanta colocation facility implemented by Global Net Access, LLC (www.gnax.net) that is located in West Atlanta. AtlantaNAP just finished the expansion of their new Enterprise Data Center in May 2008 which has added 12,500 additional square feet of cage colocation, cabinet colocation and rack colocation space. Emory University was the first client to reside in the new Data Center with up to 5,000 square feet of cage colocation space and fully redundant power feeds as part of their deal.

President Jeff Hinkle is delighted to have Emory University as a customer. "They are great to work with and add to our growing list of high-end enterprise users choosing the NAP for their mission critical data center needs," said Hinkle.
