RagingWire Data Centers, the nation’s premier data center provider, announced today that Silverchair Information Systems, a Virginia-based provider of scholarly and professional publishing solutions, has selected RagingWire’s Virginia data center to host the company’s SCM6 publishing platform.

“Data center performance is a critical link in delivering top-notch service to our customers, and so it was a strategic business decision to choose RagingWire, a colocation provider focused on innovation and customer experience,” said Benjamin Floyd, manager, technical operations at Silverchair.  “Our decision to physically host our SCM6 production environment at RagingWire’s Ashburn data center gives our staff the ability to focus on building and delivering meaningful products to our customers instead of worrying about our data center infrastructure.”

Silverchair works with leading commercial publishers, professional societies, and government organizations to deliver high-value scholarly publications enhanced with innovative meta-tagging, indexing, and application layer technologies.  While most scholarly content is presented online in its original print-derived format, Silverchair’s SCM6 platform adds an additional level of semantic enrichment and analysis that enables publishers to break free from those constraints and drive the next-generation of online content products for researchers and professionals.

“RagingWire is proud to welcome Silverchair, an exciting innovator in the digital media and content delivery space, to our Ashburn data center,” said Doug Adams, senior vice president and chief revenue officer.  “Silverchair’s decision to move their business critical production systems to RagingWire is an excellent example of the advantages that IT-focused companies can gain from RagingWire’s 100% available data centers.”
