Newly deployed equipment within DataBank leverages Comcast’s 149,000 mile national network
Minneapolis – April 27, 2016 – DataBank, Ltd., a leading super-regional provider of outsourced solutions for data center, cloud and managed services has announced the deployment of Comcast Business at the company’s East Twin Cities data center in Eagan, MN. The ‘Carrier-Hotel’ site is adding Comcast’s robust national network to the number of top-tier telecom and broadband providers available onsite to DataBank clientele.
Comcast will take advantage of DataBank’s diverse entry routes by deploying equipment into both of the facility’s enterprise-class Meet-Me-Rooms. The addition of Comcast Business as an onsite network provider allows clients of DataBank additional options for secure pathways to their offsite assets and facilities which adds redundancy and improves both network uptime and availability.
“We are very pleased that Comcast Business made the investment to provide services in our facility,” said Kris Edinger, DataBank’s General Manager for Minnesota. “Our enterprise clientele really values the diverse connectivity we can offer. The addition of Comcast’s regional diversity aligns well with our Carrier-Hotel model.”
“At Comcast, we are committed to providing the network infrastructure to transport data in the most secure, reliable manner, and at the highest possible speeds,” said Kalyn Hove, vice president, Comcast Business for the Twin Cities. “By partnering with world-class providers like DataBank, we can enhance the connectivity of the Twin Cities enterprise business community as well as attract new interest in the market.”
In addition to the Twin Cities, DataBank has a super-regional footprint that also includes two enterprise-class data centers in Kansas City, and two more in Dallas.
