NewCloud Networks has deployed its primary Midwest production cloud node at Cologix’s Columbus data center.
“Cologix presented a unique opportunity to deploy in the most resilient and connected data center in Columbus,” said Kris Hogaboom, NewCloud Networks vice president of engineering. “With more than 40 on-site carriers, 100 percent uptime track record, innovative security features, and proactive customer service, Cologix was the ideal choice to further optimize the delivery of NewCloud’s maximum-value cloud solutions to our growing Midwest customer base.”
NewCloud’s cloud solutions offering includes infrastructure as a service, backup as a service, disaster recovery as-a-service, unified communications as-a-service and MPLS as-a-service. With its latest deployment, NewCloud has added a central point between its New York and Denver facilities to further reduce latency for its Midwest customer base. By deploying its primary Midwest cloud hub in Columbus at the intersection of key long-haul and regional networks, NewCloud also gains a critical relay point for its private, national MPLS network.
“Cloud service providers like NewCloud Networks are recognizing that serving applications closer to end users improves performance to provide a quantifiable, product-based competitive advantage,” said Cologix’s U.S. North GM Kim Gerhart. “Columbus offers proximity to more of the U.S. population than any other major city, with 47 percent of the country living within a 10-hour drive. That proximity to the end user makes Columbus a natural place to deliver content and applications. We are pleased we can support NewCloud’s performance objectives and look forward to introducing them to cloud service buyers in and around Columbus.”
