INAP’s Amsterdam Data Center selected for strategic location and low latency enabled by INAP’s route-optimized Performance IPTM technology

RESTON, Va. and BOULDER, Co. – (August 14, 2018) Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a leading provider of high-performance data center services including colocation, cloud, and network, and Sovrn, an advocate and partner to independent publishers that represents more than 25,000 sites, today announced an expanded cloud hosting agreement.

INAP’s ownership of Tier 3 design Data Centers, including Amsterdam, spread across a strong global footprint, was a critical factor for Sovrn as it expanded within a highly competitive environment.

In 2017, Sovrn chose to partner with INAP based on the company’s ability to support Sovrn’s growth through targeted cloud agreements at INAP’s New York/New Jersey Metro Data Center. This partnership was then extended to include Sovrn’s west coast expansion to INAP’s Silicon Valley Data Center in Santa Clara. This expansion represents a third agreement in just over a year, and the first international Data Center location.

“INAP continues to support the rapid growth of Sovrn’s platform worldwide with the performance, reliability and elasticity they need,” said Corey Needles, SVP & GM of INAP US. “We are pleased that Sovrn continues to trust and value this strong working relationship.”

“Sovrn handles roughly 170,000 HTTP requests per second, while responding in less than 120ms. Also, that latency includes HTTP roundtrips to our bidding partners. A stable and scalable network is, therefore, incredibly important to our success, and INAP’s route-optimized IP service makes this possible. INAP continues to exceed our expectations as a proven partner, helping Sovrn to meet its current and future growth plans. We look forward to continuing our partnership in other locations,” said Jesse Demmel, CTO of Sovrn.
