Datacenter.com, an international data center services provider, announced that it has added Cogent Communications, a Tier 1 ISP, to its carrier networks portfolio available in Amsterdam (ASM1).
Cogent Communications will now open a Point-of-Presence in ASM1 facility. This will enhance the ability of Datacenter.com to meet high redundancy and high-volume bandwidth requirements set by cloud providers and other demanding clients.
“Cogent has a truly global network presence with a highly redundant network design and enormous volumes of cost-efficient bandwidth available,” said Stefan Arbias, Sales Director Europe, Cogent Communications. “Deploying a PoP in Datacenter.com’s recently commissioned AMS1 facility adds to Cogent’s facilities-based global network. Expanding our footprint in Amsterdam is important to Cogent, as the Amsterdam metropolitan region is an important Internet hub for our clients. Here, Datacenter.com surely is strategically located, in the Amsterdam South-East business district, one of the most fiber-dense areas in the world.”
The AMS1 facility of Datacenter.com comprises carrier-neutral and cloud-neutral ecosystem of network providers. Adding Cogent to it will bolster its already diverse bandwidth. Datacenter.com customers will get an end-to-end customer service and network surveillance from Cogent.
Datacenter.com AMS1 facility covers 54000 square feet area and boasts true 2N critical power redundancy, scalable data center environment and high-density infrastructure. The 54U racks of the facility provide scalability and flexibility, which suits the dynamic needs of cloud providers.
“Cogent is yet another powerful global network being added to our enterprise-grade carrier-mix,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com. “Extending Cogent’s global fiber-optic network into our Amsterdam AMS1 colocation data center is critical to our strategy of building rich connectivity offerings in this facility and Datacenter.com’s soon to be deployed facilities elsewhere in the world. Cogent’s high volume, low-latency bandwidth offerings and the cost-efficiency of its network services will definitely cater to the needs of our customers including cloud providers.”
Datacenter.com recently launched a channel partner program for its on-demand colocation services with month to month contracts. The channel partner program is for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), IT consultancy firms, and system integrators. It will help them to package their own offerings with Datacenter.com colocation services.
“Datacenter.com’s solid brand name, its unique on-demand proposition, its compliant infrastructure and professional management, as well as its ambitious growth plans of rolling-out data centers on a worldwide scale definitely suit Cogent’s strategy of continuously expanding our global network with PoPs located in enterprise-grade facilities,” added Mr. Arbias. “We’re excited about the opportunity to work with Datacenter.com as we are striving to extend our footprint in the Amsterdam and other European markets. It will provide Datacenter.com’s customers with access to one of the world largest and most interconnected networks.”
