Cloud computing provider NewCloud Networks
(NCN) has chosen data center company Cologix for its move into the Columbus, Ohio, USA market. The company, which was established in 1988, provides cloud computing and communications solutions across the United States. Its services include hybrid cloud, cloud desktops, backup and disaster recovery, and hosted PBX. NCN caters to over 2,500 customers and manages a network of around 2,000 sales partners. Its "best-of-breed " unified cloud platform is SOC, HIPAA, and PCI compliant.
With headquarters in Denver, Colorado, USA, Cologix is a "network neutral" provider whose services include colocation. The company specializes in "scalable interconnection services" through facilities across the United States (including Columbus) and Canada. Cologix’s Columbus data center is now home to NewCloud's primary Midwest production cloud node. It offers a "100 percent uptime" guarantee and "unmatched network density" to support NewCloud’s "ultra-low-latency service delivery".
“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 explained Kim Gerhart, the U.S. North General Manager at Cologix. "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.”
