365 Data Centers’ customers get access to AWS and Microsoft Azure

Company continues to grow portfolio of services based on its 194,000 sqf national US footprint.

365 Data Centers’ customers in Nashville have been connected to AWS and Microsoft Azure clouds for the first time following the opening of a point of presence (PoP) at the company’s Nashville data centre by Comcast Business.

In addition, those sitting in the facility are also to gain access to Comcast’s own network of services.

The data centre in Nashville is a 17,094 sqf colocation site which connectivity ports to some of the US’s and world’s largest carriers including AT&T, Zayo, Level3 and TeliaSonera.

The site helps to deliver Google Fiber, which starts with a connection that is up to 1,000 MG per second.

The Nashville PoP is Comcast’s third with 365 Data Centers following presences at the operator’s data centres in Detroit and Philadelphia.

365 Data Centers, recently acquired by a group of investors, also runs sites in Buffalo, Chicago, Indianapolis, New York and Tampa.

The eight markets combined produce a footprint of 194,000 sqf of net space with 7MW of usable power.

Steve Weaver, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at 365 Data Centers, said: “Comcast Business offers the premium services, cloud connectivity and bundles that enable high growth enterprises to excel in today’s marketplace.

“Our Nashville area customers have asked for connectivity to Comcast’s vast network, so we are thrilled to provide this great resource to them.”

Michelle Pluskota, VP of Business Services for Comcast, said: “As the technology leader in Nashville, Comcast has a long history of investing in the region’s business community.

“We are thrilled to work with 365 Data Centers to help their customers access data storage, and take advantage of our advanced network.”
