Data Center Colocation

Lumos Networks' data center colocation services allow you to expand the IT infrastructure of your custom network and look after business continuity and disaster recovery. Lumos offers secure, carrier-grade, on-net facilities in West Virginia, Virginia and Pennsylvania and also partners with 43 commercial data centers in our footprint.

Need:

Resource Extension and Business Continuity
If your IT team is like so many others, they are facing a staggering increase in digital assets and the number of devices that need access to corporate servers. They have also been tasked with protecting key equipment and information, which usually means moving gear off site. Add even modest hardware growth plans to this mix, and your IT organization will quickly be looking at building physical facilities to accommodate these pressures – a challenge when budgets are tight and resources are limited.

Solution:

Lumos Carrier-Grade Colocation Facilities
Lumos Colocation Service provides facilities your IT team can use to add space cost effectively. Our colocation sites are carrier-grade facilities, directly connected to the Lumos fiber optic network, where you can house, maintain and protect mission-critical servers and data. Unlike data centers with many overhead features, Lumos colocation sites are designed for core IT infrastructure needs. Our facilities are ideal for extending primary IT infrastructure or creating business continuity sites outside of major metro areas in the mid-Atlantic. From rack size through power options, you can choose the Lumos Colocation configuration that is right for you.

Lumos Colocation Benefits:

  • Business continuity
    Move key servers and data off site to create a remote backup location in a hardened facility designed to keep your equipment protected and available.
  • Location
    Lumos sites are ideal for companies that need space outside of major metro areas in the mid-Atlantic, which is close to our dense fiber footprint.
