TROY — ManagedWay, the Troy-based provider of telecommunications, cloud and colocation services, announced today that it has established a Point-of-Presence at the Canada151 Data Centers in Toronto, enabling fast, reliable service between the U.S. and Canada.
The partnership is a milestone in ManagedWay’s strategy to establish a strong partner ecosystem in major North American market hubs.
The PoP site launched with 10-gigabit-per-second service, with up to 100-gigabit available on demand. The site is further interconnected to other major markets through both ManagedWay and C151 network connections and established peering exchanges. Immediate offerings include IP transit, transport and managed colocation services. The Company has suggested that high availability cloud services and clustering will become available later in 2017.
“Our partner ecosystem approach stems from our belief in doing good by doing well,” said Robert Sanders, ManagedWay’s president and CEO. “Potential partners need to reflect our belief in customer service excellence backed by a high degree of technical and network proficiency. C151 certainly shows that beautifully, which is what gave us confidence to move forward on behalf of our current and future customers.”
ManagedWay’s expansion into Canada is part of an ongoing initiative to extend network infrastructure into strategic North America locations that provide market-accessibility return on investment. “Our primary locations are strategically located within 500 miles of more than half the U.S. and Canadian populations,” Sanders said. “This places our resources closer to our customers and their end users and brings numerous competitive advantages in terms of access, speed and cost.”
Added Joe Damiani, Canada151 Vice President: “We’ve seen a rise in the number of U.S. businesses that require data services hosted in Canada. This relationship will also provide our Canadian customers improved access to the U.S.”
ManagedWay’s relationship with C151 allows U.S. businesses to work directly with a certified and SOC 2 compliant domestic partner while still having the Canadian access and availability they need.
