ROCKLAND, Mass. & WALTHAM, Mass. -- Two powerhouses in New England’s data center cloud services industry have joined forces to enable a faster, more reliable cloud. ColoSpace Inc., a major provider in the region of outsourced data center and managed services, and DSCI Corporation, among the region’s largest hosted communications service providers, have entered into a new strategic alliance.
DSCI is providing its Metro Ethernet and Dedicated Internet Access services, delivered over DSCI’s carrier-class fiber network, for a new 10-Gigabit network backbone connecting ColoSpace’s data centers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. In addition, ColoSpace is installing new Juniper equipment for switching and routing in its data centers.

Customers utilizing ColoSpace’s data centers for colocation, data storage, or application hosting will gain many benefits from this new partnership. The new network backbone and upgraded equipment will deliver greater capacity and reliability, supporting customers’ continued corporate growth and increased bandwidth usage. Additionally, network management by experts from DSCI and ColoSpace enables both companies to guarantee uptime performance with a full service level agreement (SLA).
“We first partnered with ColoSpace in 2008 to lease colocation space for DSCI’s customers. Since then, the concept of ‘the cloud’ has really taken hold with businesses of all sizes. Now, DSCI and ColoSpace are working together to deliver the next generation of enterprise-grade cloud services,” comments Sean Dandley, president and CEO of DSCI. “Both DSCI and ColoSpace are local companies that have experienced tremendous growth within the past few years," adds John Fox, COO at ColoSpace. "We think this is a great alliance as both take great pride in their services and maintain a high level of passion for customer service."
