Paperspace began building its cloud in earnest upon its founding 2014, but the small team was just getting started and couldn’t sufficiently balance meeting immediate growth needs and planning longer-term scaling. Help came quickly in the form of COLOpeople, a managed IT services company specializing in colocation, data center selection, and migration services for startups and growing companies like Paperspace.
COLOpeople prides itself on keeping up to date on all things data center, including the skills and capabilities of each provider, common cost structures, and even the frequency or severity of outages and other interruptions. With years of experience in matching emerging businesses with the right data center partners, COLOpeople went immediately to work connecting Paperspace with full-service data center partners. The team selected CoreSite’s NY2 data center to host its North American operations and mirrored its U.S. deployment in Europe at Interxion’s Amsterdam facility as part of a strategic alliance between the two data center providers.
