NEW YORK, NY – Epsilon®, a privately owned global communications service provider, today announced that it will be hosting a webinar entitled “Serving Next-Gen Enterprise Cloud Demand with Software Defined Networking” on Tuesday, April 24, at 10am ET. This webinar is exclusive to the industry analyst community and will focus on the evolving needs of the data center as applications including artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT and more are driving the always-on, connected world that we live in. With the global transformations that these applications promise to deliver, the connectivity model must also adapt in order to not stifle innovation.

Epsilon is a cloud-centric network service provider, extending carrier grade connectivity services to communications and cloud ecosystems. The company offers networking capabilities that combine on-demand infrastructure, automation, web-based portals and APIs designed to enable global connectivity.


Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Epsilon co-founder and chief executive officer, Jerzy Szlosarek, on the growing forces that are cultivating the shift in networking service models, whilst illustrating the business case for Software Defined Networking (SDN) and API interoperability that will serve the evolved enterprise networking needs. Gil Santaliz, CEO of NJFX—operating the only U.S. Tier 3 data center located at a Cable Landing Station (CLS)—will also participate in the webinar discussing how the two operators are working together.

“Emerging technology is forcing enterprises to reevaluate how they manage, support and store these applications. As a result, the data center industry must evolve to not only meet its customer’s current application and connectivity needs, but also those needs that have yet to be realized as technology continues to advance,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO, Epsilon. “At Epsilon, we are working to proactively meet our customers’ connectivity needs, in partnership with data centers like NJFX. This webinar will allow both Epsilon and NJFX to have an open dialogue with the analyst community about the best way to address these needs.”

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, April 24, at 10am ET, and is exclusive to the analyst community. Registration is now open and can be accessed at: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8016568255382721794.

Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Datacenter.com, a carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation company that paid more than $500,000 for its domain name while planning a fast global roll-out of large-scale, on-demand data centers in select markets, has added Cogent Communications to its portfolio of carrier networks available in Amsterdam. The opening of a Point-of-Presence (PoP) by Cogent in this highly energy-efficient Datacenter.com ASM1 facility (calculated pPUE: 1.04) will further enhance Datacenter.com’s ability to meet high redundancy and high volume bandwidth requirements set by cloud providers and other demanding clients.

Cogent Communications is a multinational ‘Tier 1’ Internet Service Provider (ISP) with a facilities-based carrier network that spans across North America, across the Atlantic throughout Europe, and across the Pacific to Asia. With over 57,400 route miles of intercity fiber and more than 31,250 metro fiber miles available, Cogent provides its services to over 199 major markets globally and interconnect with over 6,150 other networks.


“Cogent has a truly global network presence with a highly redundant network design and enormous volumes of cost-efficient bandwidth available,” said Stefan Arbias, Sales Director Europe, Cogent Communications. “Deploying a PoP in Datacenter.com’s recently commissioned AMS1 facility adds to Cogent’s facilities-based global network. Expanding our footprint in Amsterdam is important to Cogent, as the Amsterdam metropolitan region is an important Internet hub for our clients. Here, Datacenter.com surely is strategically located, in the Amsterdam South-East business district, one of the most fiber-dense areas in the world.”

High Volume Bandwidth, Cost-Efficiency

Adding Cogent to the carrier-neutral and cloud-neutral eco-system of network providers available in Datacenter.com AMS1 bolsters an already diverse bandwidth blend at this large-scale data center in Amsterdam. Cogent will offer end-to-end customer service and network surveillance to Datacenter.com customers. The 54.000 square feet Datacenter.com AMS1 facility boasts true 2N critical power redundancy (allowing for concurrent maintenance without interruption), high-density infrastructure and a scalable data center environment. The facility with 54U (!) racks is designed for scalability and flexibility, suiting the dynamic requirements of cloud providers worldwide.

“Cogent is yet another powerful global network being added to our enterprise-grade carrier-mix,” said Jochem Steman, CEO of Datacenter.com. “Extending Cogent’s global fiber-optic network into our Amsterdam AMS1 colocation data center is critical to our strategy of building rich connectivity offerings in this facility and Datacenter.com’s soon to be deployed facilities elsewhere in the world. Cogent’s high volume, low-latency bandwidth offerings and the cost-efficiency of its network services will definitely cater to the needs of our customers including cloud providers.”

The announcement follows the news of Datacenter.com launching a globally available channel partner program for its on-demand colocation services with month-to month contracts. This channel program is aimed at Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs), systems integrators and IT consultancy firms, enabling them to package their own offerings with Datacenter.com’s carrier-neutral and cloud-neutral colocation services.

“Datacenter.com’s solid brand name, its unique on-demand proposition, its compliant infrastructure and professional management, as well as its ambitious growth plans of rolling-out data centers on a worldwide scale definitely suit Cogent’s strategy of continuously expanding our global network with PoPs located in enterprise-grade facilities,” added Mr. Arbias. “We’re exited about the opportunity to work with Datacenter.com as we are striving to extend our footprint in the Amsterdam and other European markets. It will provide Datacenter.com’s customers with access to one of the world largest and most interconnected networks.”
