Carpathia's capabilities include comprehensive services for network, security, server, storage and back-up, complete with adherence to security and compliance standards. Together with Digital Realty, new solutions include modular colocation designs that allow for scalability from a single rack to a private cage or a fully dedicated data center suite; expert data center strategy guidance; and cloud services and managed hosting that meet the most stringent security and compliance standards. This includes private, community, hybrid and public clouds.  For example, Carpathia designed and deployed in a Digital Realty data center a highly available, low-latency hybrid cloud environment with connection to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud for Urban Airship, along with a customized colocation solution to support Altiscale's Hadoop-as-a-Service (HaaS) platform.

"Expanding our existing relationship from being a client of Digital Realty to delivering trusted cloud services to other Digital Realty clients means any business – regardless of size, industry and location – can use public, private and hybrid cloud solutions to meet their business needs," said Philip Hedlund, vice president of business operations at Carpathia.

Carpathia brings decades of experience designing, building and operating cloud services and complex and compliant managed hosting solutions to some of the world's most demanding enterprises and federal agencies. Utilizing the best virtualization technology and the latest software-defined networking and storage advancements, the alliance will deliver efficient and optimized environments and expertise across industries for improved IT infrastructure management. 

"We are thrilled to combine our expertise and global footprint with Carpathia's deep experience and impressive reputation to provide an unbeatable suite of data center solutions," said Mike Bohlig, director of global alliances at Digital Realty.
