Case Study Examines Why ServerMania Chose Root Data Center’s MTL-R2 Facility for Efficient, Reliable and Secure Colocation in Montreal

MONTREAL – September 21, 2017ROOT Data Center, specializing in next-gen colocation that extends beyond security and reliability, today announces the release of a case study highlighting why ServerMania, an industry-leading dedicated and cloud hosting provider, chose to colocate in its Montreal facility, MTL-R2.  The case study, titled “ServerMania Chooses ROOT Data Center – Efficient, Reliable, and Secure Colocation in Montreal, Canada,” examines how ROOT Data Center helped ServerMania expand their international reach to serve customers both in the U.S. and Canada with cutting-edge colocation services characterized by advanced network infrastructure, low-cost, green energy solutions and strict security standards.

“As one of the most advanced data center operators in Canada, ROOT Data Center provided an exceptional opportunity for ServerMania to enter the Canadian market, enabling them to satisfy customers’ growing demands for scalability and rapid deployment, efficiency for power and cooling, and privacy,” explains AJ Byers, President and CEO, ROOT Data Center.  “Montreal’s transcontinental network infrastructure, affordable, clean energy availability and strict data privacy controls make it an optimal location for multinational organizations to host their mission-critical data.”

Studies have reported that data storage is becoming a growing challenge throughout North America.  According to IDC Canada, data generated from corporate systems, mobile devices and IoT is growing nearly 50 percent each year.  In addition, data residency, the regional regulations imposed on data storage, has become a key concern for customers when choosing the appropriate market for international expansion.

When faced with this concern, ServerMania turned to ROOT Data Center to provide an effective colocation solution complete with rapid deployment of high-density racks, secure, carrier-neutral facility designation, and cutting-edge technology that offers both scalability and efficiency all within a region governed by strict privacy regulations for the safe storage and usage of personal data.  Specifically, Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronics Documents Act (PIPEDA) makes it a smart choice for serving international enterprises.

“Upon making the decision to expand into the Canadian market to better serve our international clients, it was of the utmost importance to identify a data center provider capable of meeting our strict standards and guidelines for colocation,” shares Kevin Blanchard, Founder and CEO, ServerMania.  “ROOT Data Center provided the ideal combination of innovation and proven reliability while taking full advantage of Montreal’s low-cost energy options.  This enables us to provide first-rate infrastructure services within a secure and carrier-neutral data hosting environment.”

Located along one of the most heavily-trafficked routes on the internet connecting Europe with the U.S., Montreal’s optimal positioning ensures low-latency connectivity for international business operations, while simultaneously delivering affordable, green energy and world-class network infrastructure.  At the forefront of the green revolution with free air-cooling systems and renewable hydroelectric energy resources, ROOT Data Center’s facilities provide its customers with cost-effective power inside a highly-secure and reliable colocation environment with storage solutions designed to suit businesses of any size.

ROOT Data Center leverages the cool, Canadian climate for cost-effective energy efficiency. ROOT's facilities can host 55MW of power capacity to accommodate the growing demands of customers and has access to over 50 carriers, including dark fibers, local networks, and global telecoms via on-net providers and ROOT’s Metro Connect service.

Host in Ireland Founder and President, Garry Connolly, to Discuss the Role of Data Centres on the Growth of the Irish Economy

DUBLIN – 14 September, 2017 Host in Ireland, a strategic global initiative created to increase awareness of the benefits of hosting digital assets in Ireland, and winner of the Datacloud Europe 2016 award for Innovative Data Center Location, today announces its participation at Datacloud Ireland, taking place 21 September, 2017 at the Convention Centre, Dublin.  Addressing an often-misunderstood subject, Host in Ireland Founder and President, Garry Connolly, as a Special Intelligence Session moderator, will join industry experts to explore the economic benefits associated with an increase in digital assets hosting throughout Ireland.  In addition, Mr. Connolly will chair a panel session discussing the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on organisations throughout the region.

“More than a quarter of the gross domestic product of Ireland is from software and data-related services, underpinned by Irish data centres and colocation facilities,” shares Mr. Connolly.  “The data hosting industry plays a critical role in Ireland’s economic development, creating a wealth of new employment opportunities as Ireland continues to attract major multinational companies seeking an optimal location to host their digital assets.  As the data hosting sector continues to grow throughout the country, this conference will provide an opportunity for the industry’s most influential players to work in tandem to advance the data hosting industry, while educating the greater community on why digital assets hosting is important to the growth of the Irish economy.”

“Unfortunately, many people throughout Ireland don’t grasp the full value of digital hosting as it relates to job creation and economic development, failing to see beyond the mere physical construction of data center facilities,” Mr. Connolly adds.  “To judge the data industry from that perspective would be akin to measuring the effect of the agricultural industry based on a field of hay.  Similarly, the economic and job multiplier effects of data hosting extend well beyond the tangible infrastructure.”

On Thursday, 21 September, at 9:40 a.m., Mr. Connolly will join an esteemed group of national and international data protection specialists as the moderator of the Special Intelligence Session, “GDPR Mastered.”  This session will explore the overall impact of the GDPR on the creation, retention and distribution of data, as well as the effects that it will have on data hosting throughout Ireland and the European Union.

In addition, later that morning, at 10:15 a.m., Mr. Connolly will chair the panel session “The Brave New World of GDPR,” featuring Ireland’s Deputy Data Protection Commissioner and representatives from NetApp, Frontier Privacy and Compuware.  As companies evolve to comply with GDPR legislation, these changes bring about a host of new concerns, as well as opportunities.  During this session, panelists will discuss the opportunities and challenges that the GDPR will have on all global companies and their relationship with the data of EU citizens.

“At its core, the GDPR is designed to help organisations gain increased focus on the privacy and security of EU citizens’ data,” remarks Mr. Connolly.  “I am very much looking forward to joining other industry leaders as we explore ways to increase awareness of the implications of the GDPR, as well as educate attendees on how companies will need to ‘up their game’ in advance of when the regulation goes into effect on 25 May 2018, to ensure compliance before it’s too late.”

Alongside premier partners CBRE, EdgeConneX®, Equinix, Future-tech, Keppel Data Centres, Mercury Engineering, Primary Integration and Siemens, Host in Ireland will also be a featured organisation in the “Irish Pavilion,” an exhibit focused on the advantages of the Irish hosting ecosphere.

Datacloud Ireland will bring together international enterprises, local providers, investment agencies and power supply companies as a platform for networking, education and collaboration among hosting industry professionals.  The forum highlights the unique value of data centre, cloud and IT infrastructure across Ireland, which has become the gateway to Europe for multinational businesses.

About Host in Ireland

Host in Ireland, winner of the Datacloud Europe 2016 award for Innovative Data Center Location, is an industry-led marketing initiative that provides timely and accurate information about Ireland’s digital asset hosting ecosystem at all times including demonstrating why Ireland is more cost-effective, efficient, reliable, secure and accessible than most other regions across the EU.  There's a reason companies like Microsoft, Zendesk, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Adobe and beyond have sought to host their solutions in as well as to/from Ireland.  Many of these reasons are immediately realized due to access to affordable power, redundant network and bandwidth capacity along with a variety of data center providers that offer an array of services sustained by the “5 Ps”: Policy, People, Pedigree, Pipes, and Power.  On top of that is a very attractive business management structure, implemented by Ireland, which is keenly interested to bring new businesses into the market.  Ireland supports this initiative through attractive fiscal structures, access to a skilled workforce and full support of the U.S. Safe Harbor and Patriot Acts - ensuring data asset compliance for companies large and small.  For more information about Host in Ireland, visit www.hostinireland.com.

Spread Networks Announces 5G Wireless Latency Improvements Featured

Spread Networks to Deliver the Highest Bandwidth, Lowest Latency Service on the Market, 5 Gigabits at 90.20 Microseconds from Carteret to Secaucus, New Jersey

Ridgeland, MS, September 20, 2017 – Spread Networks, a leading provider of low-latency dark fiber network and wavelength solutions, announces today significant latency improvements to its 5G wireless services between NY11 at 1400 Federal Blvd., Carteret, New Jersey, and NY4 at 755 Secaucus Road, Secaucus, New Jersey.  Spread Networks will launch these improvements on October 8, 2017.

Spread Networks’ latency of 90.20µs one-way / 180.40µs roundtrip covers the full end-to-end latency from cabinet demarcation to cabinet demarcation. Other service providers quote only "wireless network" or "radio to radio," which excludes significant sources of latency that exist between the radio and the cabinet demarcation point.  No other service provider delivers a lower latency from demarcation to demarcation than Spread Networks.  Additionally, at a line rate of 5 gigabits, the system can process a 64 byte packet in 100 nanoseconds, which is five times faster than a typical low latency network.

“We don’t make the customer guess at the real latency, this is truly 5 gigs at 90.20 mics hand-off to hand-off,” states Dan Spivey, Founder and CEO of Spread Networks, “and we also offer a ‘no excuses’ SLA, which means we don’t cry about rain when you ask for a service credit.”

Spread Networks offers the highest reliability available in the metro wireless market, providing 99.5% availability with a “no excuses” Service Level Agreement (SLA).  The company will issue credit for every minute it fails to meet its SLA for any reason, including extreme weather, seismic disturbances, labor strikes, or anything else.  Spread Networks is the only provider in the industry offering this level of guarantee.  Its unique technology utilizes a larger dish on an active gimbal to penetrate adverse weather and optimize signal strength at all times.  This system enables a stronger, more robust network that performs with a higher level of reliability than other available solutions on the market.  The company’s network is monitored 24/7/365 from Spread Networks’ dedicated operations center in Atlanta, Georgia, ensuring efficient customer communications and problem resolution.

Aqua Comms CEO Will Advise on Deployment of the Deep Blue Subsea Cable System

SAINT LUCIA – September 20, 2017 – Deep Blue Cable, the developer, owner and operator of a state-of-the-art subsea fibre-optic system providing connectivity across the Caribbean islands and to the Americas, has announced it has named Nigel Bayliff, CEO of Aqua Comms DAC, as a non-exec Director of Board.  Mr. Bayliff’s career spans more than 30 years in the global telecommunications industry across senior executive, operational and technical roles, including CEO and Board Member of Huawei Marine Networks.

“Deep Blue Cable is especially pleased to appoint Nigel Bayliff as a non-exec Board Director,” commented Stephen Scott, CEO of Deep Blue Cable.  “Mr. Bayliff’s expertise brings tremendous value to our organization, and we anticipate he will have an immediate impact on our goal of bringing advanced subsea connectivity to the Caribbean.”

Prior to joining Aqua Comms, Mr. Bayliff was an advisor and consultant to cable development, private equity and government clients. Among his most notable accomplishments, he led Huawei Marine Networks’ growth from a start-up to a major player in the subsea cable construction sector while introducing several technological advances into the marketplace. Previously, he was a member of the executive team of FLAG Telecom where he served as an officer and deputy chairman, and was responsible for the construction and operation of the FLAG Global Network, which encompasses 65,000 km of submarine cable systems and provides carrier-grade connectivity to 40 countries.  He currently serves as Vice-Chairman of the United Nations joint task force that examines the gathering of disaster mitigation and climate information from the global web of undersea cable systems.

“It’s a pleasure to be appointed a member of the Deep Blue Cable Board and to offer insight pertaining to project governance,” said Nigel Bayliff, CEO of Aqua Comms.  “Launching any subsea cable system, but especially one that will have such a profound impact on the communications ecosystem and economic growth potential of a previously undeserved region, is at once a complex and exhilarating undertaking.  I look forward to deploying my experience in an advisory capacity to the deployment of Deep Blue’s pan-Caribbean subsea cable system.”

The Deep Blue subsea network, on which the company has completed all terrestrial cable landing surveys and planning, spans nearly 12,000 km with initial landing points in 12 markets throughout the region, including the Cayman Islands, Curaçao, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, and Turks & Caicos Islands, with dual diverse landings in the U.S., which will include the first landing of a cable on the Gulf Coast of Florida.  The Deep Blue network will benefit the region’s businesses and consumers by offering significantly higher design capacity, lower unit costs, lower latency through direct connectivity, and the ability to leverage advancements in reliability such as improved route planning and installation techniques.

The Deep Blue subsea cable network, which will offer an initial capacity of 6 Tbps per fibre pair, will ensure availability, competitive pricing and capacity resilience throughout the region. The company recently incorporated in the U.S., which will support its FCC license application to operate and land in Puerto Rico.  Initial business inquiries in the Deep Blue subsea network are strong, with the company presently engaged with approximately 10 individual organisations interested in significant capacity or fibre purchases.
