The company says the new Asia Pacific location adds to its network, which has data centers in Frankfurt, London, Kansas City and St. Louis.

All Fpweb.net data centers use enterprise-grade security. Not just cybersecurity, but also physical security such as guarded entry, access cards and biometric registration.

The company states that its global infrastructure is available, scalable and fault-tolerant. It also adheres to Tier III = Uptime Institute Data Center Standard and SSAE 16 SOC I Type II certification.

Fpweb.net offers managed cloud and security services. Its cloud services include support for AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, VMware and Oracle.
