Beaumont, TX September 12th, 2006 -- AmeriCommerce has chosen Internap’s Houston facility as its primary datacenter for its shopping cart software hosting services, positioning the company for future growth and the highest service quality possible. Internap’s patented technology, which finds the fastest route from the servers to the web site visitors for every page view, has given AmeriCommerce online stores an increased boost in performance and availability.
As the need for expansion continues and service level requirements continue to increase, AmeriCommerce has made a big switch from the Data Foundry data center in Houston’s Galleria area to the Internap data center in downtown Houston. AmeriCommerce plans to use Data Foundry’s Austin data center for a disaster recovery presence, providing automatic off-site backups of all databases and online store content.
“We looked at several data centers in our area and considered all of the potential risks involved in making this decision. Internap was clearly the winner when it came to quality bandwidth, service, reliability and expansion potential,” said Stefan Barlow, IT Director of AmeriCommerce. “Since the transition to the new facilities in early September, we have noticed a significant increase in speed across the board for our online store customers.”
