Our goal is to keep our customers online, all the time.Irides was founded in 1998 by a team of broadcast, finance and Internet leaders. Our initial successes were as an Internet Service Provider specializing in media and streaming solutions. Over the years, Irides has grown to become a leading Managed Service Provider delivering tailored hosting solutions to a broad range of businesses.
Irides operates a private, Class A Data Center in Arlington, Virginia and maintains space at a second, carrier-neutral colocation facility in Northern Virginia. In 2008 we connected the two centers via a redundant fiber loop allowing us to expand our multi-site offerings. We now support thousands of businesses around the world.
Through common ownership, Irides is in the same family of companies as the publicly registered Allbritton Communications Company, which owns and operates eight television stations in seven markets across the United States. Irides provides hosting and application services to the web properties of Allbritton Communications Company and to its sister organization, POLITICO.com.
To all our customers we provide flexible and reliable technology. We provide consulting services to assist in the design of the best solution for our customers and we provide 24/7 coverage with a team of dedicated engineers that take the time to understand both the technology and the business needs of individual customers.
