I had the pleasure of attending the Wow Technologies 10 year anniversary & open house celebration today. The event was hosted at the brand new Tukwila @CoLoInSeattle facility. Several sponsors including f5 Networks, Datec and TechCafe helped to make the event a fantastic networking opportunity with around 100 guests attending. I was honored to meet one of the founders and managing partner Erwad Osckar while he led a group of 15 guests on a tour of their new state of the art facility. Erwad was incredibly knowledgeable and made sure that all questions were answered. The facility is very clean and organized, you can tell a lot of thought and planning went into the build out of the facility.
WowRack offers Managed, Dedicated and CoLocation services with a compelling value proposition. The tour was very comprehensive but somewhat chilly and noisy. This is a good thing because they have really covered all the bases. If you are interested in learning more or seeing for yourself remember that the WowRack team offers site visits and tours of the facility.
