Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG), a metro dark fiber network provider in Northern California and Greater Atlanta, has announced a partnership with Bay Area’s data center colocation provider Colovore. Colovore’s clients can utilize Bandwidth IG’s network to accommodate a number of their HPC/AI server connectivity requirements in Silicon Valley.
The Colovore colocation data center is optimized for the deployment of High Performance Computing (HPC), AI, and Big Data server infrastructure and applications. The facility utilizes liquid cooling which can be ideal given the high power and cooling requirements of these dense servers. Colovore and its customers may now benefit from Bandwidth IG’s dark fiber solutions.
“Colovore welcomes Bandwidth IG and its high-performance, cost-effective and very scalable dark fiber connectivity solutions to our data center,” said Ben Coughlin, co-founder of Colovore. “Our customers can utilize Bandwidth IG’s network to accommodate a number of their connectivity requirements in the Silicon Valley.”
HPC, AI, and Big Data Server Infrastructure
Together, Colovore and Bandwidth IG would provide a distinct and highly differentiated solution aimed at HPC, AI, and Big Data server infrastructure deployments. The external colocation space requires scalable and flexible network connections to link back to the company headquarters or other data center(s) which house the main IT servers. Bandwidth IG provides the high capacity, strategic, dark fiber networks needed to support the bandwidth throughput and low latency required to optimize the data transfers and processing of these applications.
“Along with Colovore, we are able to address the growing trend in Silicon Valley with start-ups and Fortune 500 companies who are deploying increasing HPC/AI server infrastructure while requiring high capacity, low latency connectivity between the new data center environment and existing IT footprints elsewhere,” said Jim Nolte, CEO for Bandwidth IG. “This requirement for high-throughput, low latency networks is a large and rapidly-growing segment of the IT infrastructure marketplace that we are pleased to be able to address through this partnership with Colovore.”
Northern California Network
Bandwidth IG’s Northern California network offers more than 50 route miles and 89,000 fiber miles, and the Greater Atlanta network has more than 40 route miles and 75,000 fiber miles. Bandwidth IG was founded in 2019 and is headquartered in San Jose, California.
