Herndon, VA – February 9, 2017 – EdgeConneX®, specializing in global infrastructure at the edge of the network, announces today the release of a new video developed and produced in association with Comcast Ventures. The video case study explores the relationship between EdgeConneX and Comcast Ventures, detailing both how they were a critical early investor in the company and also the story of how EdgeConneX has become the largest global Edge Data Center® (EDC) provider at the edge of the network.
The video features EdgeConneX chief executive officer, Randy Brouckman, and chief architect and vice president of innovation, Phill Lawson-Shanks. The two of them explore the growth of rich media content traffic, resulting in the need for a new approach to data center architecture and management. With the help of Comcast Ventures, EdgeConneX has dramatically changed the data center marketplace, providing customers with faster and more reliable content delivery to end-users.
“It was Comcast Ventures that made the introduction between EdgeConneX and the Chief Networking Officer of Comcast,” explained Mr. Brouckman in the video. “Following this meeting, EdgeConneX pivoted from being a small point of presence provider, to the world’s leading EDC provider with 30 facilities in 27 markets across the globe.”
EdgeConneX specializes in providing purpose-built, power dense and edge of network Edge Data Centers® to enable the fastest delivery of content to end-users. EdgeConneX has created a new Edge of the internet by designing and deploying facilities that are strategically positioned nearest to network provider aggregation points, ensuring the lowest latency data delivery, with an improved quality of service.
“With the help and guidance of Comcast Ventures, EdgeConneX moved the XFINITY® platform into local, underserved markets,” commented Mr. Lawson-Shanks on camera. “This forced us to rethink how data centers are designed, maintained and managed. Traditional internet architecture cannot cope with what’s coming next. That’s where EdgeConneX is leading the field, designing facilities that can accommodate the technology that is being developed today.”
