KineticD Opens U.S. Datacenter

Toronto – 17 April 2013 – KineticD™ today announced the opening of its U.S. data center and the appointment of Troy Cheeseman as vice president of datacenter operations for both the U.S. and Canada. The facility will incorporate the same state-of-the-art protection, scalability and security as KineticD’s successful Canadian datacenter.

The U.S. datacenter will facilitate the company’s expansion and support an OEM partnership with a global provider of technology solutions for computer manufacturers. As early at Q3 2013, new KineticD customers will have the option to choose where their data resides on a per account basis. 

Jamie Brenzel, CEO for KineticD, said: “Data location is a major concern for all businesses that find it necessary to comply with regulatory requirements such as HIPPA in the U.S. and PIPEDA in Canada. Data safety is always top of mind for KineticD as we strive to provide our customers with the means to realize the benefits of storing and accessing sensitive information in the Cloud while meeting government regulations.” 

Troy Cheeseman, VP U.S. datacenter operations for KineticD, said: “As we expand datacenter operations in the U.S., I look forward to helping our customers focus on the most strategic and cost-effective way for them to grow their businesses without having to worry about data storage and backup.”
