CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FairPoint Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: FRP), a leading provider of advanced communications technology in northern New England, has released its latest customer resource on data center colocation services. The white paper, titled "Top 5 Benefits of Data Center Colocation," outlines the advantages businesses can expect to receive when they implement a data center colocation strategy.

The white paper covers how to use data center colocation for:

  • Cost-effective IT expansion
  • Addressing physical security requirements
  • Enabling businesses to scale more easily
  • An alternative and a bridge to cloud migration
  • A more effective disaster recovery strategy

"As a practical and attractive alternative for some time now, a data center colocation model helps businesses leverage advanced data center facilities," said FairPoint Communications Vice President of Product Management Chris Alberding. "When a company licenses data center space with power, cooling, physical security, connectivity and other high-performing capabilities, it can enhance its IT infrastructure in ways it might not otherwise be able to do. That's why data center colocation has gained traction in recent years with businesses of all types and sizes."

"Our new white paper discusses the key benefits a data center colocation solution provides," continued Alberding. "Although data center colocation offers numerous advantages, the most popular involve cost, security, scalability, cloud migration and disaster recovery."
