Content delivery network provider EdgeCast Networks is expanding into Switch and Data (SDXC) data centers in Atlanta, Dallas and Seattle, the companies said today. The expansion gives EdgeCast 12 data centers from which it provides distribution for streaming and downloadable media files.

“Switch and Data’s broad footprint of data centers and network-neutral business model are uniquely suited to serve companies that speed the distribution of today’s large music and video files to end users,” said Ernie Sampera, Sr. VP of Marketing of Switch and Data. “Our facilities will help EdgeCast expand by landing equipment once and then expanding connectivity with Switch and Data’s customers, including content providers and broadband networks, as its business takes off.”

Switch and Data is based in Tampa, Florida and operates 33 data centers in 23 markets, providing colocation and interconnection services to more than 870 customers.
