Continuum Data Centers Adds Comcast Business Ethernet Services to Its Portfolio

Multi-tenant data center operator, Continuum Data Centers, with its flagship colocation facility located in West Chicago, Illinois, is now offering Comcast Business Ethernet services as a new connectivity option to its customers. With 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) of fiber-based Ethernet, CDC’s customers would benefit from secure, scalable, high-performance connectivity through Comcast’s vast fiber network.

CDC’s flagship colocation facility, CDC 603, is an 80,000-square-foot, Tier III data center offering high density power, diverse network connectivity and flexible colocation space options ranging from 1,000-square-foot private-data-center suites down to a single server.

Continuum Data Centers works with more than 300 enterprises and Fortune 1000 firms. Being less than five miles away from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s data center and trading platform in Aurora, Illinois, these firms include financial services and trading companies.

Scher, Chairman and CEO, Continuum Data Centers. “Comcast Business not only provides another high-performance fiber connectivity option, but its Ethernet network reach and rapid provisioning means even more customers can connect with our facility.”

Business Applications

Comcast Business, a unit of Comcast Cable, delivers Business Internet, Ethernet, TV and a full portfolio of Voice services for cost-effective, simplified communications management.

“For companies of all sizes, data centers like CDC 603 are playing an increasingly critical role in their IT strategies, ranging from serving as an off-site back-up location all the way up to serving as a host for a variety of business applications,” said Jay Dirkmaat, vice president, Comcast Business Services. “A key part of our local network expansion plan is to get more high quality data centers on-net so that our Ethernet customers in Illinois and around the U.S. have more options for colocation services.”
