Richmond Data Center Provides Cavalier with Significant Service Offering Opportunities in Mid-Atlantic Region
RICHMOND, VA – January 25, 2010 – Cavalier, a leading provider of competitive telecommunications services throughout the eastern United States, has acquired the assets of NET Telcos, a Richmond, Virginia-based provider of colocation and managed services. NET Telcos’ SAS 70-certified data center provides more than 4,000 square feet of colocation space and managed services which include server virtualization, data backups, firewalls and e-mail hosting.
“As we grow our mid-market commercial customer base, we see significant demand from corporate IT departments to reduce operating expenses and avoid large capital investments. At the same time, customers face significant requirements for uninterruptable service availability, backup and archiving. We will address these needs by combining a managed services product set from NET Telcos with affordable, reliable connectivity using our extensive fiber network,” said Danny Bottoms, president and CEO of Cavalier.
The NET Telcos acquisition provides a solid platform for Cavalier to expand colocation and managed services offerings to its current customer base in the Mid-Atlantic region. Cavalier’s customers will have the ability to access the managed services provided in the data center, including server colocation and replication, along with several disaster recovery applications.
For existing NET Telcos customers, Cavalier’s extensive voice, data, IP and fiber network infrastructure will provide enhanced connectivity and service options throughout the region. With the ability to leverage a single carrier network, customers will be able to consolidate their services and budgets and allow Cavalier to manage more of their IT network.
“We are committed to providing customers new services which address their evolving business requirements. NET Telcos’ colocation and managed services are the perfect complement to Cavalier’s extensive voice and data networks,” continued Bottoms.
