The company expects to link to additional data centers in the region in the future as well. The new PoP will support of network footprint expansion to meet growing customer demand for services, including among its new Global Accounts customer vertical. This new unit specializes in providing core backbone data services to Fortune 100 companies including the financial sector.

We’re able to serve customers and area data centers most effectively and have the crucial advanced point of presence necessary to quickly turn up services for larger customers.”

ColoHouse’s two data center halls occupy more than 30,000 square feet with an additional 25,000 square feet coming online in 2023 (see “1547 adds capacity to Orangeburg, NY, data center”). The carrier-neutral facility offers low latency to Manhattan and the surrounding New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut areas.

“Adding to our ecosystem of carriers at ColoHouse is an integral part of our mission to provide a digital foundation that connects our customers with impactful technology solutions and services,” said Steve Rogers, senior vice president of sales at ColoHouse. “ColoHouse is constantly working with carriers to come into our state-of-the-art, top-tier data centers to offer security and connectivity for customers. We are excited for this partnership with Windstream Wholesale to deliver an option for their customers looking for space and connectivity in New York but without the real estate price tag in Manhattan.”
