Company debuts new corporate identity, management team and 365 Quick Start, commitment-free colocation services designed for SMBs and the channel
SAN FRANCISCO, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- 365 Data Centers, one of the top U.S. colocation providers by market presence, today announced the launch of its new corporate identity and the introduction of 365 Quick Start, a solution bundle that marks the company's first-step toward revolutionizing and simplifying the data center experience for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the channel.
365 Data Centers has launched the company with a focus on serving SMBs, telecom carriers and cloud service providers through its 17 data center facilities across the U.S. With presence in more U.S. markets than most other colocation providers, 365 Data Centers is addressing the need for highly reliable physical data center services with cloud-like, commitment-free contract terms.
365 Quick Start delivers pay-for-use colocation service that caters to SMBs and the channel, and leverages its 17 data center facilities located in large U.S. cities. Serious about changing the data center accessibility game for SMBs, 365 Data Centers has simplified colocation services by offering online sign-up, downtown data center locations, and commitment-free terms - a practice virtually unheard of in today's data center industry. 365 Quick Start specifically addresses the needs of the channel by allowing value added resellers (VARs), managed service providers (MSPs) and cloud providers to access on-demand colocation for private cloud deployments, temporary workloads and building new cloud services.
365 Data Centers also announced the appointment of two new executives, Chief Executive Officer John Scanlon and Chief Marketing Officer Keao Caindec. Industry veterans, Scanlon and Caindec have worked together at three companies prior: MCI, Internap and Yipes. They have become a well-known team for successfully building innovative businesses and driving transformation.
"365 Data Centers' new direction reflects our broader mission of helping SMBs grow their businesses by making data center colocation services easier and more accessible than ever before," said John Scanlon, CEO, 365 Data Centers. "We are reinventing the customer experience into one that fully meets their needs and reflects the way business is done in the rest of the technology realm. 365 Quick Start is our first proof point of that. SMBs want to take gradual steps into the cloud and we are dedicated to supporting them with local presence and national reach, providing services that facilitate a hybrid cloud-like model."
New innovations have made technology more accessible than ever. Until now however, data center access has typically been restricted for SMBs and the channel due to the high barrier to entry, including complex multi-year contracts, high prices and a heavy focus on serving the needs of large enterprises. 365 Data Centers is changing the way companies consume and purchase data center services by mitigating risks for SMBs looking to take advantage of hybrid cloud environments and enabling them to scale up and down easily.
"Providers with geographically diverse footprints often neglect the SMB space, concentrating their efforts on enterprise business. Consequently, they lose sight of the SMB's high-touch needs," said Michael Levy, Senior Analyst of 451 Research's Multi-tenant Datacenter practice.
"We believe the highly-connected data center is key to accelerating business growth on a local level, and we are making a commitment to work with the communities and cities to support these businesses that fuel economic development and make up the growing tech hubs where innovation is born," continued Scanlon. "Our data centers are primarily located in emerging economic and job creation metros where SMBs tend to incubate so not only will the businesses sustain growth, the geographic regions will too."
