Global infrastructure platform as-a-service company, MOD Mission Critical, is partnering with edge data center provider Cologix to make it simple for businesses to use the PaaSPort marketplace run by MOD. It would enable clients to develop and implement multi-facility, multi-cloud, and multi-network solutions almost anywhere globally.
As a result of the collaboration, PaaSPort, the globally distributed edge computing enabling platform from MOD, will now have a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) at Cologix’s VAN1 digital edge data center.
The MOD PaaSPort marketplace is now available at 555 Hastings in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It offers bare metal installations, managed colocation, on-demand global network connections, and a variety of managed services with SLA guarantees. Networks may dynamically design physical infrastructure, request and provision end-to-end network deployments, and alter capacity, usage, and more with industry-leading SLAs using a single connection from any of the hundreds of PoPs where PaaSPort is installed.
“Simplifying the compute infrastructure procurement process and helping companies adapt to new technologies and capabilities easier is our mission behind the design of our PaaSPort marketplace,” said Mike Hollander, CEO at MOD Mission Critical. “PaaSPort is a one-stop-shop solution that lets IT managers solve colocation, connectivity, network and cloud requirements, globally distributed nearly anywhere in the world.”
Colocation, Bare Metal, Network, Cloud Connectivity
“We are thrilled to offer our customers in Vancouver access to MOD’s PaaSPort solution where they can buy in the most dynamic, flexible and scalable way,” said Neal Elinski, General Manager, Cloud and Connectivity Platforms for Cologix. “By offering their comprehensive suite of solutions through our Cologix Access Marketplace, MOD’s PaaSPort enhances our ecosystem and helps our customers grow while further differentiating Cologix in the market.”
The IT solution used by MOD Mission Critical to purchase network infrastructure is called PaaSPort. Almost everywhere in the globe, the platform enables users to easily access colocation, bare metal, network, cloud connectivity, and managed services under a single MSA. Incremental services are supported by market-leading SLAs and begin with just 1 rack-unit or 100MBs.
