Bay Area company with global reach counts on RagingWire’s Sacramento data center for high density power and low-latency networks in a secured location outside the earthquake zone.
RagingWire Data Centers, the nation’s premier data center provider and an NTT Communications group company, announced today that MobiTV, a global leader in enabling the delivery of live and on-demand multi-screen TV services, is celebrating its tenth year in RagingWire’s Sacramento data center with 100% availability. RagingWire made the announcement at the Datacenter Dynamics (DCD) Webscale conference where it is a Lead Sponsor. DCD Webscale is being held at the San Jose Convention Center bringing together 1200+ senior business, operations, and technology professionals from the world’s largest internet companies to discuss the future of digital infrastructure in the “Zettabyte Era.”
MobiTV, a pioneering webscale company in the Bay Area, houses its IT systems at RagingWire’s 650,000 square foot Sacramento data center campus, the largest in California. These IT systems serve MobiTV’s global customer base of broadband/DSL operators, cable and IPTV operators, as well as wireless and over-the-top operators including top-tier providers: AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon.
MobiTV’s end-to-end platform helps service providers reduce time to market and control costs associated with the deployment and operation of high concurrency, multiple platform digital media services. The company’s connected media solutions solve the complexity of delivering video content across massive networks, multiple operating systems, and millions of devices while managing associated digital rights. MobiTV collaborates with industry leading media partners including NBC, CBS, ESPN, Disney, and others to deliver cutting edge TV everywhere solutions to mobile devices.
“MobiTV is committed to delivering highly available and secure live and on-demand programming to millions of concurrent users through the top telecommunications services providers in the world,“ said Bill Routt, Chief Operating Officer at MobiTV. “RagingWire has been our trusted data center partner for 10 years, meeting our requirements for 100% availability and content security in a seismically safe location, where we have room to scale our technology platform as our business grows.”
In 2006, MobiTV decided to consolidate its data center footprint from two locations in the Bay Area into a single data center that was driving distance to their Emeryville headquarters, but safe from earthquake risk. The data center needed to have 100% power availability, mission critical and secured operations, and always-on global telecommunications. In addition, the data center needed to address MobiTV’s needs for obtaining a facility assessment for the Motion Picture Association of America’s (MPAA) content security program. After evaluating multiple data center providers in Northern California, MobiTV selected RagingWire’s Sacramento campus. Today, MobiTV has two integrated deployments at RagingWire with a total of 1,100 square feet to support its production and corporate IT systems.
“RagingWire’s Sacramento data center campus is an ideal location for Bay Area companies looking for data centers with minimal earthquake risk, low-latency network access, and reduced power utility costs,” said Casey Fann, Vice President of Operations/Professional Services at MobiTV. “By selecting RagingWire, MobiTV has a partner to facilitate the delivery of live or on-demand reliable, and world-class media content with 100% uptime and impeccable customer service.”
