Datacenters.com, a technology platform and marketplace for colocation, cloud and connectivity, has added network services to its Datacenters.com IGNITE Project Platform. Based on the user’s location and technology requirements, Datacenters.com intelligently matches users with the right network service providers.
With IGNITE Network Projects, IT professionals can design their networks and view available providers that match their requirements. Users can access network configurators for software defined WAN (SD-WAN), multi-protocol label switching (MPLS), and private line networks. Network proposals are uploaded directly by providers to the IGNITE Project Platform making it easy for users to compare all of their options.
Datacenters.com has added 31 of the top network service providers including AT&T, Verizon, CenturyLink, Aryaka, CATO Networks, Zayo, Palo Alto (Cloudgenix), China Telecom, and Colt Technology Services with the launch of IGNITE Network Projects. All of the providers have been on-boarded and trained on this platform.
“High performance networks like SD-WAN and MPLS are critical for today’s digital enterprise,” said Michael Allen, VP of Solutions & Engineering at Datacenters.com. “These solutions represent a core solution offering for us and we’re excited to launch the first fully automated, intelligent digital RFP tool to help users architect their network infrastructure.”

Founded in 2014, Datacenters.com provides detailed information on 335 providers, 2,937 data center facilities, and 173 marketplace products globally.
“It’s amazing to think that we have on-boarded and trained 184 providers on the IGNITE Project Platform in 2020,” said Heidi Humphreys, President of Datacenters.com. “There’s a lot of excitement around the launch of the IGNITE Network Projects both internally and from our partners that were an integral part of this launch.”
