Data center provider Evoque Data Center Solutions and mobility and fiber connectivity solutions provider ExteNet announced a new alliance this week. With this partnership, ExteNet will integrate all of its cloud and network connectivity services into Evoque’s infrastructure at 14 key data centers throughout the United States.
ExteNet/Evoque partnership highlights
Partnering with ExteNet will provide Evoque’s clients with a full range of advanced options such as Blended IP, Regional Connect and Cloud connect, with long-haul and data center-to-data center connectivity. Meanwhile Evoque’s reach will be extended to include its 14 data centers as well as data centers from other providers in key markets like Dallas, New York and northern Virginia. Additionally, customers will enjoy more simplicity; they’ll receive one bill, and work with a single account and servicing team. Evoque’s vendor-neutral position will also expand, giving clients more providers to choose from.
ExteNet is expected to have its expanded services delivered to Evoque’s data centers by the end of January. The companies’ agreement is a significant factor in Evoque’s vision of expanding the services it can offer its clients as well as its evolution as trusted provider and partner. Meanwhile, ExteNet’s fiber services in the data center space will continue to expand.
“Data center providers must increasingly offer their clients an expanded range of flexible connectivity services to enable a consistent global reach,” Structure Research Managing Director Philbert Shih said in a statement. “Evoque’s partnership with ExteNet accomplishes that objective. 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.”
Evoque product portfolio to expand with partnership
The Evoque Connectivity Suite will now be able to deliver cost-effective point-to-point connections over a vast footprint through North America as a result of working with ExteNet. Additionally, clients can now leverage the Evoque Marketplace to find and connect with network service providers as well as establish their own geographically distributed footprint beyond their data center to any on-net location.
“We are pleased to welcome Evoque as our strategic partner,” ExteNet SVP of Enterprise Solutions Kevin Errity said. “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 through 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,” Evoque Chief Marketing Officer Donna Henderson said. “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.”
