ExteNet will integrate its full line of cloud and network connectivity services into 14 key data centers owned by Evoque Data Center Solutions, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, one of the world’s 20 largest data center firms.
The Evoque/ExteNet partnership provides Evoque’s clients with a full range of advanced options, including Blended IP, Regional Connect, Extend Connect and Cloud Connect, with long-haul and data center-to-data center connectivity. It also extends Evoque’s reach to include both its 14 data centers as well as data centers from other providers, located in key markets such as Dallas, New York, Northern Virginia. Additionally, it offers full visibility portal systems to monitor and manage utilization, as well as other key customer metrics.
ExteNet’s delivery of its expanded services into Evoque’s data centers is projected to be completed by the end of January. The agreement between the two firms marks a key deliverable in Evoque’s stated vision of significantly expanding the services offered to its clients, in its evolution as a trusted provider and partner, in addition to the continued expansion of ExteNet’s fiber services in the data center space.
“Data center providers must increasingly offer their clients an expanded range of flexible connectivity services to enable a consistent global reach. Evoque’s partnership with ExteNet accomplishes that objective,” says Philbert Shih, managing director at Structure Research. “By delivering a full range of options, with the promise of more services on the way, Evoque is demonstrating that it’s prepared to work with companies of virtually any size and meet their evolving digital transformation requirements.”
Working with ExteNet, the Evoque Connectivity Suite now delivers affordable point-to-point connections over an extensive footprint throughout North America. It also enables clients to leverage the Evoque Marketplace to identify and connect with Network Service Providers and their own geographically distributed footprint outside the four walls of their data center to any on-net location – without the need to provision a circuit.
“We are pleased to welcome Evoque as our strategic partner,” said Kevin Errity, SVP of Enterprise Solutions at ExteNet Systems. “Enabling high-capacity fiber network with diverse routes across Evoque’s 14 data centers will deliver high-bandwidth connectivity for Evoque’s clients. We are looking forward to working alongside Evoque to serve their customers with our advanced IP and Cloud Connect services.”
Errity also noted that ExteNet serves its enterprise and data center customers via its purpose-built, low-latency, fiber network including a high-capacity 200G metro core, with the capability to expand to 400G and beyond.
“Our objective in working with ExteNet is to optimize the client experience,” said Donna Henderson, Evoque’s chief marketing officer. “Our alliance gives them added speed, geographic reach, and interconnection flexibility on a single bill. It delivers the range of features they are looking for to be more productive and competitive, both today and into the future.”
