InfoRelay, a colocation provider with 15 data center facilities across the US, has completed a physical dark fiber connectivity upgrade between its three downtown New York data center facilities, as of October 7. The connectivity upgrade is intended to reduce costs and network latency for end-users of InfoRelay’s colocation and bandwidth services, states InfoRelay.
The upgraded network connections are the second phase of a larger New York-area expansion, as InfoRelay just opened the doors on its third Manhattan-area facility about a month ago.
Colocation Los Angeles, Chicago
The connectivity upgrade, spanning dark fiber connections between InfoRelay’s LGA1, LGA2 and LGA3 data centers allow colocation clients in a given New York data center to cross-connect servers to networks in other New York facilities without having physical equipment at the remote location.
“This dark fiber network will help us to reduce network latency for customers while at the same time bringing down the overall cost of our bandwidth blend to our customers,” said Josh Abraham, Director of Technical Operations. “In addition, the New York dark fiber connectivity creates additional, inexpensive data transport options available to our customers.”
InfoRelay’s growth initiatives in the US are expected to span the upcoming year, as the firm has laid plans to grow infrastructure in Los Angeles, CA, Ashburn, VA and Chicago, IL as well as other cities.
