Zoot, a provider of instant credit decisioning and loan origination solutions, has activated a Tier 4 data center in Salt Lake City.
The creation of the new data center is in response to a growing number of clients and the desire for broader geographic diversity, the company says. Zoot has a Tier 4 data center in Bozeman, Mont., and a Tier 3 facility in Billings, Mont. The new location creates a broader connection to the telecommunications grid and provides a higher level of redundancies.
"Our distributed processing network approach allows us to dynamically move transactions between servers and data centers to maximize performance and improve reliability," states Tony Rosanova, chief technology officer at Zoot. "The addition of the Salt Lake City data center proves our commitment to continued quality improvement initiatives that benefit our clients."
Tier 4 centers are designed to host mission-critical servers and computer systems, with fully redundant subsystems and compartmentalized security zones controlled by biometric access controls methods.
