It’s been an exciting week for the DataBank team with the announcement of the purchase of 44 zColo data center assets, along with 13 key interconnect locations across 23 markets in the U.S. and Europe. The deal positions DataBank as a leading provider of edge colocation and connectivity solutions to hyperscale, technology and content customers across the U.S. And if that wasn’t enough, the company also just announced at VMworld 2020 that is it one of the Top 2% of VMware Global Cloud Partners to achieve VMware Principal Partner Cloud Verified status.
“DataBank’s achievement of VMware Cloud Verification is a significant accomplishment. Being amongst the top 2% of VMware Global Cloud Partners allows us to offer customers confidence in security and interoperability when migrating to the cloud. Our partnership with VMware allows DataBank to combine our VMware-based cloud platform with co-location, managed services, compliance (up to 80% of controls for FedRAMP, HIPAA/HITECH, and PCI-DSS) and a purpose-built portal to provide the ultimate in Private Cloud.” – Vlad Friedman, Chief Technology Officer, at DataBank
“VMware is pleased to recognize DataBank with Principal-level status in the Cloud Provider Path within VMware Partner Connect.
