Arelion, global connectivity provider and owner of the world's number one ranked Internet backbone, AS1299, has joined the growing ecosystem at DataVerge, the owner and operator of the only carrier-neutral interconnection facility in Brooklyn.
Arelion provides an industry-leading customer experience along with direct, high-quality connectivity at scale to AS1299's ecosystem of cloud, content and application providers. The partnership provides DataVerge customers access to Arelion's portfolio of leading connectivity services, including high-speed IP Transit, Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), Cloud Connect, Global 40G Ethernet Virtual Circuit (VC), IPX and DDoS Mitigation services. High availability is guaranteed by dual entry points and diverse paths into the DataVerge facility.
"Arelion's new PoP at DataVerge brings our affordable, fast connectivity services to our wholesale and enterprise customers in the region, supporting further investment in Industry City, Brooklyn's innovation hub," said Art Kazmierczak, director strategic sales and network development for Arelion. "DataVerge provides sufficient power, physical security and connectivity to help us serve our customers' connectivity requirements and strengthen the region's tech ecosystem through direct access to our high-performance global Internet backbone."
"We're delighted that Arelion has joined our growing connectivity ecosystem," said Ray Sidler, CEO and Co-Founder of DataVerge. "Arelion will help support our customers' demand for fast, reliable connectivity at scale. Our two companies share a customer-focused philosophy as we both prioritize delivering enterprise-grade systems at competitive rates while connecting our customers with highly trained service teams, ensuring we provide fast support and response times to meet their business goals."
DataVerge's vast resources and growing customer base enable Arelion to deliver Ethernet services that offer a significant scale advantage over competitive providers. This means customers can access up to 40G virtual circuits delivered on 100G ports available globally with network protection and automatically optimized latency technology.
On the other hand, the addition of Arelion increases DataVerge customer access to long-haul transport providers that – along with direct access to the facility's dark fiber, metro and other long-haul transport providers – enables DataVerge to offer an unbeatable interconnection advantage.
