CommScope’s Multi-Tenant Data Center (MTDC) Alliance recently welcomed five new members to its roster, while adding an advisory board to help enhance the multi-tenant experience for operators and customers.
Formed in June 2017, the MTDC Alliance — part of CommScope’s PartnerPRO Network — was created to address the shift taking place in which companies increasingly outsource data centres to shared environments versus building, owning and operating their own. Leasing space in an MTDC allows business owners to enjoy optimal data center availability, reliability and cost control. Equinix was the first member of the PartnerPRO Network to join the MTDC Alliance.
The new members are: Digital Reality, RagingWire, T5, Cologix and Aligned Energy.
*Digital Realty empowers the data centre, colocation and interconnection strategies of more than 2,300 firms across its portfolio of 185+ data centers located throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
*RagingWire operates 1.5 million square feet of data centre space in top data centre markets in North America and is part of the global data centre platform of NTT Communications with 140 data centres in 20 countries.
*T5 has delivered or operated more than 100 mission critical facilities containing 11 million square feet of space for some of the world’s leading companies.
*Cologix has data centres in nine strategic North American edge markets that enable connectivity to the network and cloud ecosystems within those regions.
*Aligned Energy is an infrastructure technology company that offers colocation and build-to-scale offerings to cloud, enterprise and managed service providers.
“Our MTDC advisory board can help customers find the right location and space that suits their needs,” said Angela Haneklau, vice president of global ecosystem partners for CommScope. “There are a lot of questions, and we’re here to provide the right answers.”
To help users further gain an understanding of the physical infrastructure, design requirements and strategic considerations that must precede a successful MTDC deployment, the board has published its first eBook that focuses on internal planning, new installs and actual migration to a multi-tenant facility.
