Cologuard, a colocation provider in the New York Metropolitan area, is waiving setup fees for new clients using its data center’s rooftop for colocation and dedicated hosting. Customers who require access to both airwaves and fiber networks are able to mount antennas and satellite dishes on top of the 12-story building with data to and from routed through private conduits to the 15,000-square-foot data center below.
The option of rooftop wireless setup provides users with solutions not normally available with standard facilities. Raw video footage is received by the rooftop dishes and sent directly to servers within the building, eliminating the need to send video over a long distance. The service makes multi-gigabit wireless available to companies without access to a fiber connection and provides wireless backup in the event that fiber lines are damaged for any reason.
The company will also institute a new “hassle-free” guaranteed installation and waive setup fees for customers who contract before Dec. 31.
“Many data centers also require customers to negotiate with building owners before installing equipment,” said Ruben Magurdumov, ColoGuard Vice President and Co-Founder. “Customers can rest assured that their equipment will get installed without having to navigate through layers of red tape.”
The datacenter, located in Brooklyn, offers an unobstructed view of the sky for dishes and stresses that the company’s main goal is providing affordable colocation solutions to companies of all sizes.
