Hurricane Electric establishes new PoP at DataCenter.BZ in Columbus, Ohio

Oct 11, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- DataCenter.BZ, a provider of carrier]neutral, high-density colocation and enterprise-grade virtual data centers, has announced that Hurricane Electric has established a Point-of-Presence, or PoP, at DataCenter.BZ's facility located at 555 Scherers Court, Columbus, Ohio.

The new PoP will enable Hurricane Electric, which operates the IPv6-native backbone, to expand its global network and efficiently access a broad set of customers throughout Ohio and the Midwestern US.

Hurricane Electric's new PoP will allow DataCenter.BZ's carriers to exchange IP traffic and peer directly with Hurricane Electric's global Internet backbone.

The new PoP will expand access to next-generation Internet and IPv6 systems and services through 10GE (10 gigabit Ethernet), GigE (1 gigabit Ethernet) and 100BaseT network connections. The new PoP will also enable improved fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management infrastructure capabilities.

"We are pleased that Hurricane Electric has chosen to leverage DataCenter.BZ in the expansion of its global IPv6 backbone in Ohio and we are excited about the benefits our customers will enjoy," said Gordon Scherer, President of DataCenter.BZ. "We look forward to offering our customers access to Hurricane Electric's vast global network."
