Clients of 365 Data Centers, a leading provider of data centre solutions for carrier, content and cloud customers in ten strategic edge markets, can now tap into NRBN's carrier-grade MPLS network, which is an extensive and advanced fibre network in Canada's Niagara region.

The new partnership with NRBN brings 365 Data Centers' growing carrier list up to 25 in the Buffalo facility. NRBN is now delivering 100Gbps of optical transport connectivity from the Buffalo data centre into Canada, complementing its 500 miles of wholly-owned fibre facilities. Providing Ethernet, Optical Wave and IP Transit services, NRBN has network-to-network interfaces with all major Canadian carriers, as well as optical transport connectivity into 151 Front Street in Toronto.

365's Buffalo carrier-neutral data centre, which offers lower power rates generated by Niagara Falls, is located on Main Street in the heart of the city's telecom hub.

It is one of 365 Data Centers' 10 nationwide facilities offering a combined 195,000 sq ft and 13MW of power to serve customers. The Buffalo data centre, which is HIPAA, PCI DSS, SSAE 16, SOC 2 and ISAE 3402 compliant, boasts more than 10 years of continuous uptime.

Steve Weaver, vice president of sales and marketing for 365 Data Centers, added: "Through NRBN, 365 Data Centers clients now have enhanced connectivity into Canada, while NRBN's customers have access to 365's newly enhanced portfolio of colocation, cloud and managed services. We're proud that our Buffalo facility serves as a digital bridge into Canada."
