Colo by the U
– Joanna Styczen, spokesperson for iMPR, says:
As requirements change, technologies evolve and budgets tighten, companies are constantly seeking innovative ways to do more with less. Nowhere is this more prominent that in the realm of technical infrastructure. Technological advancements have enabled efficiencies across hardware design. Today, many companies are trading in their massive gear for substantially scaled-down, single rack unit configurations. This migration has spurred the need for alternative colocation options.
Traditionally, data center and colocation providers require at least a half-cabinet commitment with every colocation service, while those that do often fail to deliver on several critical capabilities and features. These include:
- Access to diverse connectivity to major metro and emerging markets;
- Secure, redundant data center facilities offering ample space, power density, capacity and availability for customer online applications;
- Fast service turn-up; and
- Maximum uptime ensured by once central Network Operations Center (NOC).
To fill this gaping void in the marketplace, companies such as Mod Mission Critical (MOD) are fortifying their colocation services to offer Colo by the U. Colo by the ‘U’ provides customers with flexible, scalable and cost-effective colocation options available by the single rack unit – approximately 1.75 inches of vertical cabinet space. This way, customers have the ability to pay only for the space they need – with the ability to scale rapidly as their business needs grow. No longer will companies have to forfeit connectivity and top-of-the-line colocation for scalability and cost-efficiency.
MOD is a network service provider that combines facilities and non-facilities-based assets to deliver comprehensive, mission-critical network solutions. The company’s data center presence spans over 100 secure and controlled facilities around the globe. Its Colo by the ‘U’ is currently available in facilities across Ashburn, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, Phoenix, San Jose, Toronto and Sydney, with future deployments scheduled in Amsterdam, Chicago, Denver, London, Miami, São Paulo and Seattle.
