vXchnge: Reinventing Colocation Services

Ali Marashi, CTO and Sr. VP of Engineering
In today’s hyperconnected world, modern technological innovations fundamentally change how companies manage every aspect of their business, from sales and marketing to recruitment, risk management, and much more. Most organizations have a range of applications and workloads that run on different cloud environments, which gives them unprecedented computing power. However, managing large digital footprints poses several interconnection challenges for organizations to maintain seamless deployment and operations of their workloads and applications. To this end, a colocation service can equip these IT teams with what they need to accelerate cloud environments quickly and affordably while maintaining their local infrastructure.

This is where Florida-based vXchnge, a leading colocation service provider, takes center stage with its award-winning edge data centers that offer unparalleled transparency and control to organizations, empowering them to manage their digital assets seamlessly. The company not only delivers core data center offerings, such asspace, power, and cooling, but also ensures 100 percent uptime SLA, N+1 redundancy, disaster mitigation services, a zero-trust security philosophy, DDoS protection, along with around the clock support. Additionally, vXchnge’s edge data centers allow organizations to deploy new applications and edge computing technologies closer to their customers to reduce latency, enabling better customer outcomes. “We provide edge data centers in key growth markets across the U.S., which deliver the necessary ecosystem for unparalleled transparency, reliability, and control over organizations’ assets, wrapping all these together with our customer-first service approach,” states Ali Marashi, CTO and Sr. VP of Engineering at vXchnge. More importantly, vXchnge's carrier-neutral data centers allow organizations to choose from a variety of providers to enhance their connectivity.

One of the core components of vXchnge’s solutions is its business intelligence and DCIM platform, insite, that allows organizations to track assets, monitor performance, and manage access and protection. Accessible through a web interface, API integration, or mobile app, the platform provides a customizable, 360° view of organizations’ colocated infrastructure and delivers performance analytics that allows them to make informed business decisions. "Our insite platform is built and evolved based on our clients' inputs that enable organizations to customize their view and manage the data center as if it was their own," informs Marashi. Notably, the platform has won numerous industry awards in categories like DCIM, IT Service Management, and business intelligence and analytics. It also has several other options and functionalities, allowing organizations to interact and engage with vXchnge in the way that best meets their business needs.

vXchnge also puts utmost emphasis on security and compliance and employs strong risk mitigation procedures to mitigate any threats.

It starts with enforcing multiple layers of physical security for its data centers all the way up to the cabinets, including biometric multi-factor authentication to unlock doors and 24-hour closed-circuit video monitoring. Even the customer-facing systems such as insitehave access control features to ensure that only authorized personnel can access the data, information, and applications. For organizations that require a scalable, secure, high-performance managed internet service, vXchnge offers vXdefend that provides enhanced network security, resiliency, and low latency. Moreover, the company meets several compliance requirements with a range of accreditations, including ISO 27001, SSAE 18, HIPAA, PCI DSS, and others.

vXchnge customers also have access to an ecosystem of other services as an added benefit of being in colocation. The company understands each customer’s use-case is unique and may need additional applications and services that vXchnge cannot offer directly. That’s why vXchnge can connect customers to several other businesses and service providers within the data center or the industry to find exactly what they need, such as content delivery networks (CDN) or a firewall service.

From emerging start-ups to Fortune 500 brands, several organizations rely on vXchnge for colocation. Marashi shares a customer success story of a client, Western Express, a trucking company in the U.S. that lost all its IT hardware, including the data center hosting systems that were crucial for its operations, due to inclement weather. Although the company had backups, they were facing seriouslatency issues. vXchnge was able to get their servers up and running within 24 hours at its Nashville data center.

With several such success stories, vXchnge has carved a niche for itself as the go-to colocation data center provider. The company continually innovates its services and now plans to leverage modern technologies such as IoT, augmented reality, AI, machine learning, and others to offer more innovative services to its clients. vXchnge also aims to add technologies like mobile near field communication, QR codes, facial recognition technologies to extend the benefits of multi-factor biometric authentication for physical access security. “We are planning to introduce modern technology tools in our insite platform to set a new bar for supporting the evolution and growth of our clients’ business,” concludes Marashi.
