Hargray Acquires New Colocation Facilities to Support Local Business
MACON, GA and SAVANNAH, GA – January 25, 2019 – Hargray, a regional communications provider and metro-fiber over-builder, today announced the acquisition of three colocation facilities to offer advanced data security and computer hardware storage to businesses across Georgia, South Carolina, and northern Florida. Hargray’s acquisition of these facilities is part of the company’s commitment to support continued economic growth and in response to a demonstrated need by area businesses to secure and back-up critical data.
Hargray’s newest colocation facilities offer secure space to businesses across the southeast. These capabilities are the latest additions to Hargray’s existing facilities and growing network. Our customers now have improved access for remote and geographically redundant locations that offer structurally secure facilities, equipment racks, cooling, power, bandwidth, physical security, and ongoing maintenance.
“Many business leaders know us for our superior telecommunication services. We are now pleased to enhance another layer of our capabilities – colocation” says Hargray Fiber’s Vice President and General Manager, Randy Brogle. “We know how critical it is for businesses to back-up data and house additional hardware off-site, while having direct access when needed. Our colocation spaces do exactly that.”
Currently, area businesses in a variety of industries including our nation’s largest wireless carriers, healthcare, government, and education are leveraging Hargray’s colocation capabilities to maintain critical applications in facilities that are typically only available in cities like Atlanta or Jacksonville. Now, businesses of every size can benefit from colocation for disaster recovery and as an alternative to storing critical data and equipment in their own offices, reducing business and financial risk while optimizing performance and productivity.
