Arelion joins DataVerge’s carrier-neutral data center ecosystem

Nov. 13, 2023
The Swedish provider’s move will give New York area businesses direct connections to over 70% of the world’s key internet routes.

Arelion has become part of DataVerge’s growing ecosystem, the owner and operator of  Brooklyn’s only carrier-neutral interconnection facility.

Customers at the DataVerge location will be able to get access to Arelion’s AS1299 internet backbone and its array of connectivity services, including high-speed IP TransitDedicated Internet Access (DIA)Cloud ConnectGlobal 40G Ethernet Virtual Circuit (VC), IPX, and DDoS Mitigation services. High availability is guaranteed by dual entry points and diverse paths into the DataVerge facility.

The relationship has benefits for Arelion and DataVerge.

DataVerge's resources and growing customer base enable Arelion to deliver Ethernet services at a greater scale. Customers can access up to 40G virtual circuits provided on 100G ports available globally with network protection and automatically optimized latency technology.

In addition to offering internet services, Arelion's Cloud Connect solution provides a direct, secure, dedicated, and scalable connection to major Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) throughout Europe, The Americas, and Asia to ensure quick implementation of private Cloud Connectivity. These CSPs include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), IBM Cloud, and OracleCloud. Customers can also connect to multiple data centers or clouds at Layer 2 using protected Ethernet connectivity from single or multiple locations, enabling multi-cloud access while leveraging the same connectivity infrastructure the hyperscalers use at the terabit scale.

"Arelion's new PoP at DataVerge brings our affordable, fast connectivity services to our wholesale and enterprise customers in the region, supporting further investment in Industry City, Brooklyn's innovation hub," said Art Kazmierczak, director of strategic sales and network development for Arelion. "DataVerge provides sufficient power, physical security and connectivity to help us serve our customers' connectivity requirements and strengthen the region's tech ecosystem through direct access to our high-performance global Internet backbone."

By adding Arelion to its ecosystem, DataVerge’s customers will be able to get access to long-haul transport providers that – along with direct access to the facility's dark fiber, metro, and other long-haul transport providers – enable DataVerge to offer what it says will be an interconnection advantage.

DataVerge's carrier-neutral position and vast levels of connectivity make it the ideal ecosystem partner in Brooklyn, NYC's most populous borough. Their flagship facility is the sole meeting point for connectivity at Industry City, the largest interconnected business and technology campus in the United States.

"Arelion will help support our customers' demand for fast, reliable connectivity at scale,” said Ray Sidler, CEO and co-founder of DataVerge. “Our two companies share a customer-focused philosophy as we both prioritize delivering enterprise-grade systems at competitive rates while connecting our customers with highly trained service teams, ensuring we provide fast support and response times to meet their business goals."

Arelion is one of several competitive providers that have become part os DataVerge’s ecosystem. The ecosystem also includes Astound Broadband, Hurricane Electric, Lightpath and SkyWire.
