365 Data Centers has announced the availability of Compact Cabinets across its footprint of 17 U.S. data centers. Compact Cabinets provide a cost-effective entry point for businesses looking to get started with colocation and for existing customers who want to incrementally expand or reduce their data center deployments. The new offering continues the company’s mission to make colocation more accessible, delivering increased choice and flexibility by providing another option for clients seeking the security and reliability benefits of local data center colocation in a hybrid cloud environment.
Compact Cabinets, about one-third the size of standard cabinets, are an ideal option for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs), systems integrators, and managed service providers (MSPs) that do not need a full-sized cabinet. In September of this year, 365 Data Centers introduced 365 Cloud Storage, an on-demand cloud storage-as-a-service available locally in all of its data centers. Customers that use 365’s cloud storage reduce their need for colocation space by offloading storage infrastructure management to 365. 365 Data Centers also offers standard cabinets and custom cages or suites for clients who need them.
365’s Compact Cabinets, starting at $425 per month, include features that make it easy to get started in colocation:
- One-third size locking cabinet (14 RU x 24 x 36 in.)
- 1Mbps of Internet service with burstable pricing options
- One cross connect
- Primary AC power with 120 volts x 15 amps
- 100% service availability SLA.
“SMBs, integrators and MSPs need both dedicated colocation and cloud services,” said Keao Caindec, CMO, 365 Data Centers. “Our Compact Cabinets are a cost-effective alternative for businesses that are not ready to put their mission-critical applications in the public cloud. They need a hybrid environment. Our Compact Cabinets and 365 Cloud Storage are a perfect combination for businesses that want an easier and more cost effective way to improve the security and performance of their IT systems.”
365 Data Centers’ facilities are HIPAA and SSAE 16 compliant and feature power, cooling, connectivity and security 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and 365 days per year with multiple carrier options and superior uptime availability.
