Citing Colo Atl’s ability to provide N+1 redundancy, access to multiple tier-1 network operators and its SSAE 16 certified facility; the key differentiator was Colo Atl being home to the Southeast Network Access Point (SNAP). SNAP is a next-generation Internet Exchange (IX) supporting IPv4, IPv6 as well as OpenFlow and software defined networking (SDN).
"N+1 system redundancy is crucial to providing the level of service our customers demand; it’s about having confidence that any and all provisions have been made, even those we haven’t thought of,” comments Miller Cooper, owner Sago Networks. “Considering Colo Atl’s optimal location, direct access to tier-1 network providers, SSAE 16 certification, access to SNAP and no monthly recurring cross connect fees, colocating here was an easy decision.”
A privately owned company with raised floor data centers in Atlanta and Tampa, Sago also owns and operates a fiber ring in Atlanta and fiber paths in Tampa. Sago connects its Norcross, GA data center to Colo Atl’s facilities using two distinct fiber connections to give a high level of service to it colocation, dedicated server, wireless internet, cloud and managed services clients.
“We are excited to welcome Sago Networks to Colo Atl’s family of growing network operators, service providers and businesses,” states Tim Kiser, owner and founder of Colo Atl. “A comprehensive telecommunications provider, Sago had a number of critical requirements that had to be met before we could even be considered; I’m happy to say that we met those requirements and will continue to meet their requirements as our respective services evolve.”
Established in November 2001, the Colo Atl colocation and Meet Me Room (MMR) facility is located across two floors of 55 Marietta Street in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Colo Atl is a reasonable, accommodating and cost-effective interconnection environment for more than 80 local, regional, and global network operators.
