Comcast Business today announced that Peak 10, a national IT infrastructure and cloud solutions provider, is now offering Comcast Business Ethernet Services as a connectivity option to customers in its Ft. Lauderdale data center. A reliable, scalable business data network, Comcast Business Ethernet provides Peak 10’s customers with the ability to increase their bandwidth in line with business growth. This capability enables Peak 10 to provide its customers in South Florida and throughout the southeast with access to high-bandwidth Ethernet connectivity and premium off-site data center back-up and cloud services for maximum disaster recovery preparedness – a key priority for businesses of all sizes year-round and especially during hurricane season. Peak 10 also added Comcast Business Ethernet as a connectivity option to its data centers in Atlanta, Jacksonville and Nashville.
Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Peak 10 operates 23 data centers in 10 key markets in the U.S., serving customers around the world in all industries including healthcare and finance, where compliance regulations are most stringent and the need for a secure, reliable network is essential. In Ft. Lauderdale, Peak 10 operates two data centers – one that’s 22,000 sq. ft. of raised floor space and another that is 11,000 sq. ft. of raised floor space – that deliver a variety of colocation, managed and cloud services to businesses that need to store, transfer and protect mission-critical applications and sensitive company data. With multiple Peak 10 data centers connected to the nationwide Comcast Business network, South Florida businesses can benefit from the ability to safely store data at an off-site data center nearby and back up their data to a remote location. This helps protect against loss of company information in case of a power outage, flooding or other destruction due to a hurricane.
Peak 10’s data center in Ft. Lauderdale was built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane and was specifically designed based on the impact of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, including a windowless design, access to two separate power infrastructures and the capacity to house 250 individuals from client companies within its offices in the event of a storm or disaster. Peak 10 works with a number of healthcare organizations, financial institutions and other companies, whose data is essential to their daily operations, so having a reliable, high-capacity network they can rely on is a key part of their data center strategy.
