Integra Extends Fiber Reach to 92 Data Centers
By Mandira Srivastava
IT departments across a range of industries are concerned about the amount of latency in their network infrastructures. Companies are looking to gain ultra-low latency networks that provide unmatched high-performance connectivity.
Integra, a provider of fiber-based, carrier-grade networking, communications and technology solutions, has connected 30 data centers to its network since October 2013.
Now Integra’s total on-network data centers have reached to 92, a nearly 50 percent increase in the timeframe, reflecting continued demand among enterprise and wholesale customers for high-bandwidth, low-latency fiber connectivity to critical infrastructure.
Integra's newly connected data centers follow several announcements in the year to date that reflect the company's ongoing investment in expanding access to Integra's network infrastructure and suite of business services. The data centers are situated in Integra metro fiber markets with a concentration in Phoenix and the California Bay Area. The retail and wholesale data centers serve a broad range of data center operators and their customers with reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity to support their critical data, transport solutions, cloud services, and infrastructure needs.
"The continued acceleration in our on-network data center relationships tracks with the steadily growing demand, particularly among our enterprise customers, for dependable high-speed connections to data center services as well as Integra's hosted and managed solutions,” said Dan Stoll, Integra vice president of strategy and development. “More and more, our customers are looking to data centers to maintain their critical data and support their most important workloads, including access to public and private cloud services across multiple providers."
Integra offers facilities-based communications and network services to enterprises, small and mid-sized businesses, government agencies and carriers throughout the western United States, with nationwide and international connectivity delivered via a robust IP/MPLS network.Integra customers will gain from this and other recent strategic investments in network expansion, such as a new long-haul fiber route connecting Salt Lake City with Northern California and expanded Ethernet-over-Copper (EoC) access.
