Fairpoint's Lightning Fast Service Coming to the Data Centers
FairPoint currently offers scalable, secure pace for IT equipment, and is connected with the largest fiber-based network in northern New England. These two aspects of the company make them a prime candidate for the datacenter world - they offer a stable infrastructure combined with lightning-fast fiber in one of the largest markets in the U.S.
The data center will allow the public and businesses access to state-of-the-art coolant, security (365 X 7 X 24), and rackspace that rivals some of the largest companies in the data center industries. Industry insiders are especially excited with data center because FairPoint already owns a top-tiered telecommunications organization, thus, the infrastructure is already in place.
According to Chris Alberding, FairPoint vice president of product management: ""'¦as more organizations seek to reduce capital expenses and adapt to the ever-evolving technology and regulatory landscape, we continue to see the need for data center services. The introduction of this service demonstrates our ongoing commitment to identifying and responding to the needs of our northern New England customers.""
Additionally, Fairpoint, offers service over the largest fiber-core (including more than 16,000 route miles of fiber in northern New England) Ethernet network of its kind in northern New England, so data is transmitted over a high-quality, reliable, private network, making the data center all the more secure and fast. The datacenter will offer high-powered redundant systems with multiple choices of network connections, giving the customer the ability to personalize their data center experience."
