Windstream Wholesale to link into Alabama’s AUBix Data Center

Feb. 22, 2022
The service provider says it should complete the connection to the facility by the end of this month.

Windstream Wholesale has revealed its intentions to bring its Intelligent Converged Optical Network (ICON) to the AUBix LLC data center in Alabama. The service provider says it should complete the connection to the facility by the end of this month. The company therefore is taking orders for Wave Services, Ethernet Solutions, and Dedicated Internet Access “of all speeds” to tenants of the data center, which is adjacent to Auburn University.

The 40,000-square-foot AUBix LLC facility is a multi-tenant, mission-critical, and CMMC-compliant data center located at 1571 W. Samford Ave. It connects to Windstream’s point of presence at 55 Marietta in Atlanta. AUBix revealed its intention to build the facility last August, stating at the time that the facility will offer 22,000 square feet of available data center space and more than 3 MW of critical power capacity across two data halls with redundant power and cooling. The six-acre site can be expanded to 100,000+ square feet, providing greater than 12 MW total, the company added.

“We are excited to provide customers with diverse, high-speed connectivity to the AUBix LLC data center,” said Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Windstream Wholesale. “This data center is perfectly positioned to meet the needs of hyperscale, government, and research-oriented companies across the Southeast. We couldn’t be happier to add AUBix to our suite of top-flight data center partners.”

“We are proud to partner with Windstream to bring high-speed internet service to communities in Alabama,” added Andrew Albrecht, co-founder and chief executive officer at AUBix. “Their visionary approach to technology parity means businesses in the region have the ability to compete on a national and global scale, fueled by reliable, fiber-based service.”
