Cogent Picks 365 Main for Hosting

Data center operator 365 Main (365main.com) announced on Tuesday that it would provide hosting, colocation and management for Internet service provider Cogent Communications (cogentco.com) out of its Bay Area facility.

"Cogent is now added to our list of over twelve providers that sell services to our customers," says Chris Dolan, president of 365 Main. "Adding Cogent to our list of providers has enabled customers to purchase cost effective bandwidth. Customers today in many cases are shopping for the best value. 365 Main is recognized as one of the few financially sound data centers of its kind in the industry, while placing additional focus on customer service and value added offerings that most critical facilities are currently without."

Cogent, based in Washington DC, is a provider of low-cost bandwidth to Web hosting and other service providers. The company has a presence in over 85 markets throughout the US and Europe.

"365 Main has all the critical support systems we need including security, redundant power, and most importantly, a large customer base with which to cross-connect," says Dave Schaeffer, CEO of Cogent. "By utilizing 365Main’s presence in Bay Area, we can now extend our footprint and reach customers that previously could not directly connect to Cogent."
