Infomart, the US wholesale data centre provider, has announced that it is doubling the capacity of its carrier-neutral building meet-me room (BMMR) in Dallas.
The upgrade in infrastructure comes
as the company prepares for future carrier installations. The
BMMR was launched in 2015 and since then has seen quick
adoption from carriers, ISP’s and cloud providers,
which is also driving the expansion.
"The provider and service diversity within BMMR and
Infomart-operated wholesale suites makes Infomart Dallas the
ideal option in the region for linking to communication systems
both nationally and globally," said John Sheputis, president of
Infomart Data Centers.
The newest additions to the facility are Verizon and the
cloud service provider ServedBy the Net, which have established
points of presence in the hub’s BMMR.
Connecting in Infomart’s Dallas hub means
customers can access as many as a dozen international and
domestic carriers, ISPs, colocation and content providers
– in addition to the DE-CIX Dallas exchange, and next
generation SDN-based cloud networking services.
"For companies with latency-sensitive applications or that
are deploying hybrid cloud, proximity and connectivity have
become business-critical," added Sheputis.
Earlier this year Infomart partnered with PacketFabric to
bring the latter’s SDN-based network platform to
its Dallas and Portland data centres. Giving Infomart customers
access to instantaneous, direct and secure provisioning of
terabit-scale connectivity between any two or more locations on
the PacketFabric network.
