Waveform Technology Connects More Michigan Data Centers

Local Internet service provider Waveform Technology now connects more Michigan data centers than any other competitive carrier. Waveform Technology today announced the completion of a major expansion of its Metro Detroit fiber-optic network. This IP based network provides connectivity to private, commercial, educational and municipal data centers located throughout Southeast Michigan. The total capacity of Waveform Technology’s 400 route mile network is over 1,600 Gigabits per second.

The network improvements substantially increase the amount of available bandwidth in southeast Michigan, make high capacity Metro Ethernet circuits more affordable, and provide for additional Type-1 carrier options to customers in Waveform Technology’s carrier neutral Troy, Michigan, Data Center. The new bandwidth is available thanks to new construction and upgrades, including increased use of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM). Fiber construction was completed despite harsh winter weather.

“This project demonstrates our continued commitment to investing in our local economy. We want to make sure that Michigan companies have access to both the Internet and private network bandwidth that they need to prosper in the new ‘2.0 economy,'” said Waveform Technology spokesperson, Noel Montales. “We hope that affordable Internet bandwidth will also encourage out-of-state information technology companies to call Michigan their home.”

Among the benefits of the expanded network capacity is the increased availability of Metro Ethernet circuits in southeast Michigan. Metro Ethernet is a flexible and trusted technology that provides high bandwidth Internet connections over fiber at relatively low cost, and without the substantial investment required for other types of fiber Internet connections.

Colocation America Announces Emergency Protection for Natural Disasters and Network Threats

Colocation America, a leading colocation server hosting company, announced today its redundant emergency protection systems for businesses and organizations of all sizes that utilize colocation and dedicated server hosting services. Colocation America’s redundant systems have protected businesses through adverse weather conditions this winter, earthquakes and other natural disasters, and network threats that consume and destroy network resources.

“We are seeing businesses get harsh treatment from the elements recently, and in that situation you want to be 100% sure your business can survive the most devastating conditions,” says Michael Trunkett, President at Colocation America.“With protected colocation servers storing a company’s essential data, you can stay on your feet and serve customers as usual, without interruption from natural disasters or conditions that could cause catastrophic failure.”

Businesses of all sizes need redundant emergency protection to safeguard financial information, employee information, data on projects in progress, sales and distribution information, and customer databases. Losing this data can set a company back for months or years, or it may not recover. Colocation America provides redundant emergency protection systems at all times as part of their colocation hosting services and dedicated hosting services.

“Without accurate customer information, the business-customer relationship erodes and companies can lose their competitive advantage,” says Trunkett. “In this economic environment that could be fatal, so our data centers secure our customers’ data with the highest level of both physical and virtual protection.”

Colocation America colocation facilities have a comprehensive suite of monitoring systems in place.

Colocation America Improves Business Performance While Lowering IT Costs

Colocation America, a leading colocation server hosting company, announced today its success in reducing IT expenses for clients by providing data center colocation hosting services, security protection, and continuous up time.

“Small and mid-size businesses often settle for a data center that doesn’t meet their needs because of the related costs of energy and cooling, and adequate security,” said Shawn Jacobs, Director of Marketing at Colocation America.“Bandwidth is another huge expense, and most companies only need all their bandwidth a fraction of the time.”

To alleviate an IT department’s prohibitive costs, Colocation America’s hosting services include multiple power and cooling paths, 24/7 biometric security, and virtually unlimited bandwidth transmission through upstream providers. Unexpected costs associated with in-house data centers such as losing data and experiencing downtime due to bad weather or transitioning to a new system are alleviated with Colocation America’s security, management and data storage services.

“Losing customer data is a tragedy no company should experience so we take every precaution necessary to ensure our customers’ servers are online and available,” said Jacobs. “Colocation America prides itself on delivering peace of mind for every business we host, especially during natural disasters, expansion, or network threats. Our emergency generators and firewall protection enable us to guarantee 99.99% up time, so our customers can rest easy and focus on their business.”

Colocation America’s expert team and employee training programs reduce costs for colocation hosting customers by eliminating the need for a company to hire its own specialized engineers. In-house data centers experience downtime when upgrading to allow for business growth. In addition, investing in technology for anticipated future growth significantly raises IT costs. Colocation America keeps those costs down with expansive data center space and custom server options.

“At Colocation America, creating a state of the art, secure and fast data transmission system is only part of the equation,” says Jacobs. “By understanding the needs of your business, we keep costs manageable for every company regardless of size.”

Colocation America continues its quest as one of the fastest growing colocation server hosting providers in the nation. Customers looking for a reliable colocation hosting provider are encouraged to visit colocationamerica.com for move-in specials, data center locations, POPs, security, reliability, and pricing information.

Metro Ethernet is now an affordable Internet option for Michigan companies, thanks to price reductions by Waveform Technology

In many areas Metro Ethernet Internet service is reaching record low prices, starting around $1300 a month. Waveform representative Noel Montales attributes the price reductions to the continued development of Michigan’s fiber optic capacity. “The availability of Metro Ethernet has just exploded recently. It’s much less expensive for us to provision these circuits and I hope we can help the Michigan economy by making these high level services more affordable for customers.”

Waveform’s price reductions come in the 5 Mbps to 100 Mbps range, making high bandwidth options cost-effective for smaller companies. The Ethernet protocol makes these circuits flexible and inexpensive, while maintaining the same high quality standard as more costly Internet connections.

Business bandwidth needs are always expanding and changing, but many companies have outgrown their old Internet connections. A few years ago most offices only needed their Internet connection to exchange email and download some websites, but now many companies are expanding the way they do business by adding streaming media, video conferencing, disaster recovery and other high-bandwidth applications.

About Waveform Technology
Waveform Technology is a privately held facility-based Internet service provider, headquartered in Troy, Michigan. Waveform offers a wide range of data services in Southeast Michigan, and operates a 400 mile fiber network.

Waveform Technology will freeze colocation prices during 2009 to help Michigan companies in the struggling economic climate

Troy based data center operator Waveform Technology today announced a price freeze for all colocation customers in its Michigan Data Center. This price freeze is intended to help IT companies in Michigan, and all over the country, who are struggling in the current economic climate.

Waveform Technology will commit to maintaining its 2008 colocation prices through 2009. Current Waveform customers will not see their rates go up, and new customers will have access to the current 2008 prices.

Steady prices will give information technology companies a better ability to plan projects. Waveform Technology also hopes to help boost the Michigan technology economy by providing reliable and affordable colocation to area business.

“It’s much easier for companies to budget technology resources if they’re aware of the cost beforehand,” said Waveform Representative Noel Montales. “We never want to surprise our customers by changing our rates, and we want to insure them that we won’t. Waveform is committed to providing affordable colocation to Michigan businesses of all sizes, and we won’t let a recession change that.”

Waveform Technology has never raised its price for 1u, customer owned colocation. Waveform had not intended to raise prices in 2009, and has made the price freeze public in order to reassure both current and potential customers.

“We view our price freeze as an investment for the future,” continued Mr. Montales, “anything we can do to help the companies who need our services is worthwhile.”
