Specializing in developers who utilize OpenBSD, NetBSD and FreeBSD, RootBSD and require cloud, bare metal and MAAS, opens its data center in San Jose’s Central Colo – SV1 to serve the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay area.

RootBSD brings its rock solid *BSD-based hosting service to the world’s tech hub, Silicon Valley. Announcing the opening of its cloud and bare metal services at its San Jose Central Colo- SV1 datacenter, RootBSD will have a presence and access to the headquarters of the world’s leading tech companies and hottest startups.

Developers can utilize both bare metal and cloud service deployments through RootBSD’s service, which supports OpenBSD, NetBSD and FreeBSD. The San Jose datacenter connects to more than 125 providers as well as one of the world’s largest peering points and internet exchanges. RootBSD users can interconnect directly to hundreds of companies (including global telecom companies, cloud service providers, content companies and leading social media platforms) colocated at the datacenter.

“Our expansion into Silicon Valley and the Bay Area means that our customers can now service a very vital and important part of the tech sector in the manner they wish to deploy – through cloud services or through bare metal servers,” Mark Price, RootBSD’s CEO, said. “Most importantly, we offer users who prefer to work in OpenBSD, NetBSD and FreeBSD environments the best service of any hosting company. This is also important to us, as Silicon Valley and the University of California at Berkeley is the birthplace of BSD – FreeBSD was also known as ‘Berkeley Unix’.”

The addition of San Jose to the RootBSD’s global presence is the latest in in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. Bare metal FreeBSD servers are deployed, instantly, to any of RootBSD’s data centers, no matter where they are.

In addition, all RootBSD services come with a native IPv6 connection. RootBSD has provided *BSD IPv6 capable services for years. With the exhaustion of older, legacy IPv4 address space, IPv6 capability is becoming a critical requirement for any online presence and RootBSD is able to bring that to the *BSD world.
