GlobeNewswire “Press Releases “
RENO, Nev. , Nov. 11, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Encompass Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets:ECMH),
www.encompassholdings.com, reports that its’ wholly owned subsidiary, Quadrant Data Systems, Inc . (QDS-I) today announced it has entered into an extensive co-marketing agreement with Silicon Valley Telecom and Internet Exchange (SVTIX).
Joseph Berardi , CEO of Quadrant, stated, “Under the agreement, Quadrant and SVTIX plan to interconnect our two data centers through both wireless and fiber optic connections. Since SVTIX is a major interconnection point for most of the Internet Tier 1 Carriers, often referred to as a ” Telco Hotel ,” we will gain the added benefit of being “carrier neutral,” thereby allowing our clients to choose from a broad selection of carrier options.”
Quadrant plans to leverage this relationship to provide enhanced disaster recovery capabilities. “Many of our clients have asked about mirror facilities. In the past, we have provided these services on an ad hoc basis, however the cost and complexity often discourages our clients from following through with a robust off-site backup plan. Now we will be able to offer an integrated package that will include all of these necessary elements,” said Kirk Hurford , Chief Operating Officer of Quadrant.
SVTIX is a 95,000 sq ft data center in San Jose, California conveniently located next to the Pacific Gas & Electric ( PG&E ) downtown power substation and less than a mile from the west coast junction point of the Internet backbone called MAE-West (Metropolitan Area Exchange -West Coast) where all the major carriers exchange traffic.
Fred Rubio , President and CEO of SVTIX, added, “We have been working with Quadrant on other projects and realized that our businesses were very complimentary. After some discussion, we have decided to work together as “sister” facilities to bring increased benefits to the clients of both data centers. This will expand our product offerings and provide a comprehensive solution to our client’s disaster recovery planning.”
“This is a significant development in Quadrant’s continuing growth. We are very pleased to see Quadrant partnering with one of the major players in the region. This relationship will strengthen Quadrant’s ability to provide superior services as well as extend its market reach,” said Scott Webber , CEO of Encompass Holdings .
