Quantum, a new business unit of Compass Datacenters, introduces a White Space as a Service (WSaaS) solution for adding extra local, distant, or edge capacity. Quantum includes a modular data center colocation offering as part of a comprehensive service package, removing the need to change operating methods or hire extra staff as a result of network expansion. In order to allow quick adoption, the service’s leasing structure eliminates corporate capital needs.
Compass professionals conduct the complete spectrum of installation and operation tasks for Quantum’s White Space as a Service (WSaaS) solution. For each of the company’s full-function 100kW modular data centers, this comprises site selection, site preparation and permitting, installation, monitoring, and operation.
“Our White Space as a Service offering solves all of the most complex and frustrating aspects of deploying distributed digital infrastructure,” said Tony Grayson, General Manager at Compass Quantum. “This is a comprehensive scalable data center and service offering for small capacity requirements anywhere you need it. From downtown in a metro area to the middle of the desert, our team can take care of every step in the process including site selection, permitting and operations. This approach enables our customers to structure this as a straightforward OpEx expense rather than a risky CapEx project.”
Distributed IT Infrastructures
“Compass Quantum’s White Space as a Service model is a perfect fit for organizations like ours that are seeking to rapidly deploy a solution to address a specific need – in our case, maximizing the recent federal investment in broadband infrastructure by deploying facilities that bring neutral interconnection, cloud and content to smaller cities and rural areas,” said Tom Ferree, Chairman and CEO of nonprofit Connected Nation. “Building out internet exchange points in smaller markets with a traditional capex model would be very difficult not only in terms of up-front investment but also in terms of the work involved in that scale of site selection, permitting, facility operations and maintenance. With the comprehensive package that Quantum provides, companies get exactly the IT capacity they need without the headache of managing those challenges. That is invaluable for us as we continue with our mission of closing the Digital Divide for all Americans.”
“Companies want to be able to quickly, cost-effectively add small increments of white space exactly where they need it when they need it,” said Chris Crosby, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Compass Datacenters. “Without all the logistical, financial and operational headaches related to distributed IT infrastructure.”
