MIAMI, Jun 14, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMRK), a leading global provider of managed IT infrastructure services, today announced that Verizon Business has inked a deal to purchase Internet colocation services at its Network Access Points (NAPs) of the Capital Region and the Americas to meet increasing demand from Verizon's federal clients to deliver FISMA-compliant data center services.
As part of the agreement, Verizon will utilize 25,000 square feet of colocation space at Terremark's world-class NAPs in Miami, Florida and Culpeper, Virginia that are designed to meet or exceed federal government standards for data communications and hosting facilities requiring stringent guidelines for power and cooling redundancy.
