Stocks in this article: ELNK

ATLANTA, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EarthLink, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELNK), a leading IT services and communications provider, today announced the launch of its Data Center Connect solution. Data Center Connect is a networking solution that enables clients to leverage the EarthLink private MPLS network to access the cloud by interconnecting one or more sites to EarthLink SSAE 16 SOC 2 compliant data centers.

On February 13 at 2 p.m. EST, EarthLink will offer a free webinar and whitepaper, entitled: The Cloud is Only as Good as Your Network to explain the features and benefits of this solution. Click here to register for the webinar and click here to download the whitepaper. The webinar will detail the benefits of private cloud access via EarthLink Data Center Connect and demonstrate how network connectivity, service availability options and patterns-of-use create the best cloud computing results for businesses.

Data Center Connect offers several key benefits when businesses interconnect data center facilities and services such as cloud hosting, disaster recovery, colocation, managed security, cloud workspace and secure email via EarthLink's nationwide MPLS network. Within a customer's private MPLS data network, EarthLink's data centers provide high availability and private access to applications and services with Class of Service (CoS) for optimal performance. With Data Center Connect, a business' application traffic between the data center and the MPLS network is protected by redundant paths and infrastructure, enhancing service availability and improving the value derived from each cloud-based service.

"Cloud computing is a remarkably agile platform for IT services delivery, but private network access is crucial for services that demand exceptional data security and high uptime," said Michael D. Toplisek, EarthLink Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "EarthLink's Data Center Connect takes our expertise in networking complexities and proven history of successful MPLS deployments and couples that with cloud computing and IT services for a competitive, reliable offering that empowers clients to simplify their IT services infrastructure."

Data Center Connect also provides a special burst on demand option that can double the port speed on demand, delivering network flexibility that scales when needed. The solution honors Service Level Agreements (SLAs) up to the full burst bandwidth, ensuring that the bandwidth is always available and Class of Service policies are fully supported. Every EarthLink MPLS connection includes 10 Mbps of bandwidth to a data center, allowing customers to build out their cloud infrastructure on a phased basis, adding additional bandwidth as needed.
