Home Industry Strategy Future Hosting sets up shop in Brisbane

Hosting service provider Future Hosting is now operating from a Brisbane data centre.

Future Hosting previously offered virtual private servers and hybrid servers from data centres in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and London, with support delivered from five time zones around the world.

The company has now opened a facility at an unspecified Brisbane location with connectivity to Telstra, TPG-Soul, Pipe Networks and NextGen Networks.

"The Australian hosting market is rapidly growing and represents an important opportunity for Future Hosting," said CTO Nick Zyren.

"As we continue to refine our network infrastructure and make our services available to more parts of the world, Australia is an important addition to our global footprint.

"Our facility in Brisbane not only offers the robust physical network infrastructure that our clients demand, but it also provides us with the physical capacity we need to continue our growth."
