New Mexico-based colocation facility now provides more
diversification and cost-effective network services for businesses to
connect to the cloud; clients switch entire service set to Comcast
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Business today announced that it now provides direct, dedicated
links to bigbyte.cc (bigbyte), a tier III compliant data center in New
Mexico, allowing Comcast Business to provide small and medium sized
businesses (SMBs) and enterprise customers with more choices to connect
to the cloud. Tenants of bigbyte are now able to select Comcast Business
for high-performance Ethernet and other services to support a wide range
of business applications.
Founded in 2001, bigbyte.cc Corp. maintains over 30,000 square feet in
data center and business continuity space with an additional 20,000
square feet "built-to-suit" available for any size project. Serving as
New Mexico's only 100 percent women-owned, privately held data and
disaster recovery center, bigbyte's carrier-grade infrastructure
provides customers operational reliability with security, affordable
bandwidth and fully redundant facilities while providing cost effective,
compliant and flexible space.
"As the first neutral colocation facility in the state, we seek to
provide diversification and always-on network access for our customers
to meet their technology and business needs in compliant spaces," said
Nerissa Whittington, principal bigbyte.cc Corp. "Now, with Comcast
Business, our clients can get Ethernet services and much more. We're
seeing clients transition away from their provider to Comcast Business,
particularly to take advantage of the circuits that provide important
price and bandwidth benefits to connect to the cloud."
To store data, optimize their workloads, and execute mission-critical
applications, businesses require a resilient, high-capacity network.
Direct cloud connectivity helps businesses achieve enhanced performance,
security and availability compared to connecting over the open internet,
and Comcast's Ethernet offering is backed by a service level agreement
(SLA). Through Comcast's NNI (Network to Network Interface),
bigbyte customers are able to get private MPLS/VPLS WAN services in New
Mexico at gigabit-level speeds.
The Diakonos Technology Group (DTG), a managed IT provider specializing
in small to medium sized enterprises in New Mexico, is a tenant of
bigbyte and has deployed Ethernet
Network Service (ENS) with 200 Mbps performance at three sites that
provide direct connectivity back to bigbyte for cloud hosting services.
Attracted to its quality, reliability and affordable costs, DTG will
Dedicated Internet (EDI) at 100 Mbps to serve as its premium circuit
with future plans to triple the capacity.
"What attracted us to bigbyte initially was its colocation services,
disaster recovery for office space and its independently audited
status," said Nick Campbell, CEO of DTG. "Separately, its proximity to
our client-base and the variety of network services through Comcast
Business that allow us to connect to the cloud while keeping costs in
check were seen as a key to our business development. Comcast Business
helps our business operations, and we look forward to growing with them
as our main service provider."
"Regardless of size or its industry, businesses are seeking flexibility
to connect to the cloud rather than a one-size-fits-all service, and
that's what bigbyte has with Comcast Business," said Julianne Phares,
New Mexico External Affairs Director, Comcast Business. "Through
dedicated, reliable, secure access with access to multi-Gigabit
performance and low latency, bigbyte clients can connect to the cloud
that best fits their needs with the assurance that Comcast Business is
there to support them as future needs develop."
Comcast Business' network connects to nearly 500 data centers as well as
cloud exchanges for dynamic access to multiple cloud providers.
Serving as New Mexico's only 100 percent women owned, privately held
data center and disaster recovery center, bigbyte's carrier-grade
infrastructure provides customers the highest level of operational
reliability with security, affordable bandwidths and fully redundant
facilities while providing cost effective, flexible space. Bigbyte.cc is
New Mexico's only compliance driven continuity campus. For more
