Recovery Point Extends Private Dark Fiber Cloud Network to Major Baltimore Point of Presence(October 20, 2011)
GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 10/20/11 -- Recovery Point, the leading national provider of integrated business continuity solutions to government agencies and commercial and non-profit organizations, has extended its private fiber network to a major point of presence in Baltimore.
Recovery Point's carrier-neutral dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) private cloud network is unique among hosting and disaster recovery providers. It features over 300 miles of diversely routed dark-fiber infrastructure connecting multiple Recovery Point facilities directly to redundant peering nodes, which in turn encompass some of the largest Internet exchange points in the country.
The extension of Recovery Point's network to Baltimore complements the company's existing presence at major peering points in Washington, D.C., and Ashburn, Virginia, and now offers clients' cost-competitive direct access to over 450 leading global carriers, including upstream access to the backbones of the world's leading Internet providers. This unique infrastructure allows clients to eliminate the complexity and expenses of "last-mile" charges, local loops and long-haul circuits, and enjoy the benefits of direct cross-connects, high-performance network reliability and flexible, scalable, services. Clients benefit from controlled costs, world-class network performance, and nationwide access to all Recovery Point services.
"Most of our competitors terminate a selected number of carriers in their own facilities and make their clients either choose one, or run a very expensive 'last mile' circuit from a carrier of their choice. Either option can be very expensive, or take months to implement," said Recovery Point President Marc Langer.
"Think of our network as literally making our services available to any client, anywhere in the country, via any carrier that client already has terminated in their facility," Langer added. "This changes the entire dynamics of network provisioning in the disaster recovery industry."
