Reliance Globalcom Completes Clearview's Texas Fiber Web
Waco Information Technology Gateway brings data transfer and route resilience to clients' business continuity and disaster recovery plans
LONDON - January 19, 2010 - Reliance Globalcom, a leading global provider of managed network and communication services for multinational enterprises, carriers and consumers, today announced the launch of Clearview International LLC's Texas Fiber Web-a fiber-connected network of Clearview's Information Technology Gateways. Reliance Globalcom's presence in Clearview's data centers, including its newest center in Waco, establishes a critical path for transferring valuable data and applications among major Texas cities including Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
Reliance Globalcom's Ethernet assets improve disaster recovery for data transfer among Clearview's Texas markets. This is especially important to clients along the Texas Gulf Coast where hurricanes are a seasonal reality as well as clients in States surrounding Texas whose operations are in "Tornado Alley."
Clearview's Information Technology Gateways don't compromise when it comes to network speeds, reliability and state-of-the-art infrastructure. "Reliance Globalcom's network enabled us to deploy a better disaster recovery network to support our clients," said Jay Looney, Clearview Managing Director. "A significant number of our clients are among the Fortune 500 and do a significant amount of their business online. To us and to them, this is mission-critical."
Reliance Globalcom and Clearview are a critical component of many customers' disaster recovery and business continuity solutions. Clearview data centers offer optimal conditions for power, space, connectivity, temperature controls and security. Key to Clearview's new Waco data center is its central locality, which has it strategically positioned on a power grid separate from Texas' major cities and protected from brownouts and blackouts. As the only data center with a direct fiber connection between Dallas and Waco, the Waco facility offers an excellent location for enterprises seeking a structurally sound site to store valuable information.
"The decision to join Clearview's Texas data centers has been an effective way of bringing our global connectivity and service assurance to the oil and gas industry as well as some of the largest corporations in America," said Ted Raffetto, President, Americas region, Reliance Globalcom. "Clearview's philosophy of managed services mirrors ours. Like Reliance Globalcom, Clearview is founded on the guiding principles of exemplary client care, consultative expertise and failsafe connectivity."
Clearview is a privately held company offering business risk management, consulting, managed services and enterprise hosting. The company provides a full range of co-location, managed services, back-up and disaster recovery services from its Information Technology Gateways.
