Integra™ has connected 30 data centers to its network since October 2013. The surge brings Integra’s total on-network data centers to 92, a nearly 50% increase in the timeframe, reflecting continued demand among enterprise and wholesale customers for high-bandwidth, low-latency fiber connectivity to critical infrastructure.
The recently added retail and wholesale data centers serve a broad range of data center operators and their customers with reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity to support their critical data, transport solutions, cloud services, and infrastructure needs. The data centers are located in Integra metro fiber markets with a concentration in Phoenix and the California Bay Area. Integra customers will benefit from this and other recent strategic investments in network expansion, such as a new long-haul fiber route connecting Salt Lake City with Northern California and expanded Ethernet-over-Copper (EoC) access.
“The continued acceleration in our on-network data center relationships tracks with the steadily growing demand, particularly among our enterprise customers, for dependable high-speed connections to data center services as well as Integra’s hosted and managed solutions,” said Dan Stoll, Integra vice president, strategy and development. “More and more, our customers are looking to data centers to maintain their critical data and support their most important workloads, including access to public and private cloud services across multiple providers. And, by focusing on connectivity to third-party data center providers, we’re able to support customers who prefer a best-of-breed approach to provisioning their critical infrastructure.”
