The company bills itself as “an innovative, agile and unique managed hosting company focused on providing the right solutions to customer needs as quickly and efficiently as possible”. Its solutions include public, private and hybrid cloud alongside cloud storage, bare metal servers, colocation, CDN, and security and disaster recovery offerings.
1025Connect bills itself as “Long Island’s premier carrier-neutral interconnection colocation facility”.
