DataVerge, a company featuring a 50,000 square foot colocation data center in Brooklyn, NY, with a rich ecosystem of over 30 carriers and network providers, has added Lightpath to its connectivity roster. Since network infrastructure has long been ignored in the vibrant Brooklyn area according to the companies, this strategic cooperation would aid both companies in expanding their presence there.
Founded in 2003, DataVerge owns and operates one of the largest carrier-neutral interconnection facilities in Brooklyn, New York. The colocation facility is located at Industry City in Sunset Park and is SOC 1 (SSAE18 Type 2) and PCI compliant.
DataVerge offers dedicated, private connection choices to hundreds of network, cloud, and IT service providers through its more than 50,000 square feet of colocation space. The newest of Lightpath’s several attempts to provide connectivity and provider choices for businesses and individuals in the Tri-State region is its expansion into Industry City.
“We are excited to partner with Lightpath to expand our reach, increase the number of service providers in our ecosystem, and better serve our family of customers,” said Ruben Magurdumov, COO and Cofounder of DataVerge. “The more flexibility we have in connecting to fiber networks and the more diversity we have in our provider ecosystem, the stronger and more prosperous the digital economy of the Brooklyn area becomes.”
Location: Industry City
