AUGUST 17, 2010 -- 360networks, a facilities-based wholesale provider of Private Line Transport, IP, VoIP, and Local Access solutions, has completed a fiber build for Advanced Data Centers (ADC), owner and developer of corporate data centers. For this deployment, 360networks provided fiber from its backbone with diverse laterals into ADC's McClellan Park facility, situated on a former Air Force base with low-cost $.08 utility rates and state sales tax credits on IT equipment, such as servers and routers.
"With 360networks as our backbone provider, we are now able to offer low-latency (2.3 milliseconds), 10 and 40 Gig service to key sites in the Bay Area, including Equinix in San Jose," says Michael Cohen, president of Advanced Data Centers. "Our Bay area customers can now benefit from our site's favorable tax benefits, its location outside of earthquake and flood zones, and the lowest power costs in the state."
"As demand for wholesale collocation and cloud computing continues to grow, particularly in Northern California and other high-tech centers throughout the west, 360networks remains well positioned to support data center providers like ADC," says Rob Frasene, president of 360networks. "With the planned launch of our layer 2 Carrier Ethernet service later this year, we will be able to provide data centers a number of low-latency, intra-city options."
360networks’ fiber-optic network spans 18,000 route miles to more than 60 major metros, suburban markets, and rural areas from the west coast to the Mississippi Valley.
