Internap Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP) is a provider of data center services including colocation, managed hosting, cloud and network services. The company is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, United States with company-controlled data centers located in North America, EMEA, and APAC.
Internap was founded in 1996 and initially headquartered in Seattle. During the dot-com bubble, the company was smart to go public. The Initial Public Offering (IPO) took place in 1999 on the NASDAQ with the symbol INAP. Internap sold 9.5 million shares at $20 apiece, and the stock climbed as high as $73 before closing just below $53.
INAP relocated its headquarters from Seattle to Atlanta.
INAP acquired CO Space, Inc which provided the company with its data center offering.
Acquired Voxel for $35 million in cash. Voxel provided on-demand dedicated hosting and cloud services to enterprises and Web-centric businesses. Voxel had more than 1,000 customers and has approximately 50 employees.
Acquired iWeb, a Montreal-based web hosting and colocation services provider, for $145 million.
In September, Peter D. Aquino became the CEO of Internap. Aquino replaced Mike Ruffolo who's short tenure lasted from May 2015 to September 2016.
China’s favorite e-commerce giant Alibaba is planning the launch of a cloud region in London, two years after entering the European market with a data center in Frankfurt.
The move was not highly publicized; the company merely updated its website to advertise the future availability zones in the UK and an unspecified ‘Launch Date,’ offering early bird plans and free services to its potential customers.
Among these are three types of elastic compute services from low to high performance web servers, as well as a database hosting service, ApsaraDB for RDS.
It is unclear whether the company is building its own data center in the UK, and the information on its site – promising two nines of availability, dual availability zones and other generic data center characteristics such as CCTV, fiber diversity and 24/7 on-site engineers – gives little clue as to where it could be leasing the space.
Built in 2000 and was subsequently expanded in 2012
Although Internap is a carrier, the company operates a "carrier neutral" data center. There are a half dozen networks in the site, plus more via the CoreSite Meet-Me-Room
Data center was built in 2011
