Facility to House Primary ActiVia and OmniCast Core Clusters Capable of Serving up to 10 Million Concurrent Media Devices
STRATACACHE, a leading provider of scalable, high-performance digital signage, content distribution and enterprise video acceleration technologies, today announced its acquisition of a hardened data center facility in an undisclosed location in the Dayton, Ohio metro region.
This 10,000 square foot data center, representing a $3.25 million dollar investment in facility, technology and software systems, has the capacity to host 2,000 concurrent ActiVia and OmniCast servers. It will also provide an expanded scope of services for several of the world’s largest digital media networks, powered by STRATACACHE.
Built as a ‘bunker’ facility, the new data center is designed to accommodate the growing demands of STRATACACHE’s current customers, while allowing the company to support up to 10 million additional media player devices within the next several years.
“Within the last three years we’ve experienced heightened customer demand for managed digital media services as part of our digital signage/digital media practice. This new facility will expand our ability to fulfill clients’ requirements for world-class services. Our customers are evolving from one to 10, and even 200, digital media devices per store and each device requires ongoing managed services to achieve their mission,” said Chris Riegel, STRATACACHE CEO.
This highly secure location is operated 24/7/365, includes multiple biometric and physical layers of security and monitoring, redundant data paths, emergency backup power systems, and is controlled by an advanced facility access control system.
“This facility continues to show our dedication to the region and our further investment in building first-class technology and service operations within Dayton,” said Riegel. “Our business continues to grow by ‘outsourcing’ digital signage and digital media technology and system operations for customers from high-cost urban centers around the globe to the highly skilled, but lower cost, Midwestern United States.”
STRATACACHE is a privately-held provider of efficient, scalable and cost-effective digital signage, IP video, content distribution and enterprise video acceleration solutions. Working with over 300 of the world’s largest firms in the retail, finance, service, hospitality, manufacturing, media and government sectors, STRATACACHE’s products meet the performance requirements of large-scale enterprise media solutions, while immediately providing a significant return-on-investment to the customer.
