MOD Mission Critical (‘MOD’) has announced a strategic partnership with 365 Data Centers to make available MOD’s Colo by the ‘U’ services throughout all of the company’s 15 facilities nationwide.  This mutually beneficial partnership provides MOD with a larger platform to share its services throughout underserved markets, while giving 365 Data Centers’ customers the ability to use colocation by the single rack unit for smaller workloads.

As the need for colocation and cloud services grows rapidly among small- to medium-sized businesses and enterprise organizations, colocation by the unit offers a solution to fulfill companies’ unique needs.  In addition to providing Colo by the U, MOD also brings to 365 Data Center customers additional managed service solutions for bandwidth, transport, routers and switches, meeting their expectations in areas where many competitors fall short.

“Many of our clients looking for micro-colocation opportunities are simply getting their feet wet in the colocation world, creating the possibility for future expansion to larger deployments,” explains Keao Caindec, chief commercial officer, 365 Data Centers. “Through our partnership with MOD, we are now able to take on more clients that need micro-colocation of single servers.  This combination of managed service delivery with the ability to meet specific needs through smaller colocation solutions makes it easier for businesses of all shapes and sizes to leverage our services, placing 365 Data Centers in a unique position within the industry.”

With two clients already signed up to begin using Colo by the ‘U’ services within 365 Data Centers’ Chicago facility, both companies expect to see fast growth of the micro-colocation solution in the coming months.

“We saw incredible potential within 365 Data Centers’ strategic locations throughout the U.S. to offer our services in many Tier 2 markets,” says Michael Hollander, managing partner, MOD Mission Critical. “The need for micro-colocation and single servers is growing, and MOD has made it easier than ever for smaller businesses to enter the world of hosting services through 365 Data Centers and Colo by the ‘U’.”
