ATLANTA, July 17, 2018 – Colo Atl, the leading provider of carrier-neutral colocation, data center and interconnection services at 55 Marietta Street in Atlanta, announces today that Colony Bankcorp, Inc., a bank holding company headquartered in Fitzgerald, GA with twenty-seven offices located in central, southern and coastal Georgia cities, has selected Colo Atl’s downtown Atlanta facility for data center and interconnection services. By establishing a presence at Colo Atl’s facility, Colony Bank can interconnect with its network providers, with no monthly recurring cross connect fees within the Colo Atl meet-me-area (MMA).
Colony Bank is a community bank in South Georgia with 27 locations in the state including Albany, Ashburn, Broxton, Centerville, Columbus, Cordele, Douglas, Eastman, Fitzgerald, Leesburg, Moultrie, Quitman, Rochelle, Savannah, Soperton, Statesboro, Sylvester, Thomaston, Tifton, Valdosta and Warner Robins. The bank will utilize Colo Atl’s colocation services and fiber network connectivity in a secure, convenient location in downtown Atlanta.
“Our primary focus, of course, is our customers and ensuring utmost security for them as they do banking with us via one of our 27 locations, from home, or through a mobile device. As the banking industry continues to meet high technology demands, making our services available ‘anytime, anywhere,’ it’s imperative that we partner with the right technology providers to ensure these capabilities, securely and reliably,” states David Sheffield, Infrastructure Services Manager for Colony Bank. “As Colo Atl was already connected to our top network providers, and considering its ideal location, choosing Colo Atl’s facility for data center and interconnection services was an easy choice. Since working with Tim Kiser and team, we’ve found the service and response time has been far superior to our other colo providers.”
Colo Atl provides a reasonable, accommodating and cost-effective interconnection environment for more than 90 local, regional and global network operators.
“We’re honored to welcome one of our region’s top banks, Colony Bank, to the Colo Atl family,” states Tim Kiser, Owner and Founder of Colo Atl. “As a future-proof data center, Colo Atl is designed to provide secure, reliable colocation and data center services to financial institutions like Colony Bank, backed by a heightened level of personal attention and customer support.”
“With Colo Atl, it is so easy to request services like smart hands, remote help or any other data center services that normally cause us to have to go through a lot of red tape. With Colo Atl, we don’t have that issue – there has been great communication and great service so far,” concludes Sheffield.
Colo Atl is an Atlanta Telecom Professionals Award Nominee and Winner of the 2016 TMT News Award for Best Colocation & Data Center – Georgia and the 2016 Georgia Excellence Award by the American Economic Institute (AEI).
