Broadcloud Selects BYTEGRID® for FISMA and GSA ISC Compliant Data Center Services

Broadcloud Customers to Deploy On-Demand Cloud Solutions Leveraging In-Center Bursting Capabilities

SILVER SPRING, MD--(Marketwire - Aug 28, 2012) -   BYTEGRID™, an emerging company focused on the nationwide acquisition, development and operation of premier wholesale data center facilities, today announced an agreement to provide critical data center space to Broadcloud, a leading provider of highly secure, private cloud and managed IT services to large enterprises.

BYTEGRID provides highly secure, compliant data center space and serves some of the world's largest companies, including a Fortune 15 financial services firm that relies on BYTEGRID to provide the data center and IT infrastructure underpinning its global business encompassing trillions of dollars in daily transactions with more than 100,000 hours of zero downtime.

Broadcloud delivers private IT solutions for clouds, network and security services out of 60+ datacenters around the world across a federated group of data center operating vendors such as Equinix, Level3, and BYTEGRID, as well as a number of on-premise deployments at customers' sites seeking high value, high risk, and high security solutions.

Broadcloud has created a "Global Network for the Virtualization of Computational Power" where performance, security and reliability are key, whether that is for Government agencies, a Fortune 50 Customer requiring PCI Level 1 compliance, a top 3 gaming company of extreme scale and security for their high value website, or the largest sports franchise in the USA for secure reliable connections from mobile devices for online news, stats, and entertainment.

To protect its large enterprise and Federal Government customers' mission critical workloads, Broadcloud selected BYTEGRID for its physical security and compliance with NIST FISMA, GSA ISC Level IV standards and network grid connectivity criteria. BYTEGRID is also operated under the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16 Type 2 audited controls. 

By hosting its customers' IT solutions from within BYTEGRID, Broadcloud is able to deliver highly secure private cloud solutions, as well as the ability for customers to burst outside their physical infrastructure while remaining secure and compliant within BYTEGRID. 

"To serve the world's largest organizations, Broadcloud is delivering on-demand private cloud solutions featuring the highest levels of security and compliance," said Brent Eubanks, EVP Strategic Services at Broadcloud. "BYTEGRID provides us with ultra-secure, reliable, and compliant data center infrastructure allowing our customers to consume our compliant focused cloud solutions on-demand in a secure and controlled fashion."

"Broadcloud's innovative IT services model is ideally suited to BYTEGRID's capabilities as a private cloud enabler," said Don Goodwin, BYTEGRID's Executive Vice President. "We look forward to supporting Broadcloud's solutions from our FISMA compliant platform appealing to a wide variety of large organizations in the Washington D.C. metro area and mid-Atlantic region."

BYTEGRID recently announced the completion of its major expansion and infrastructure upgrade at its ultra-secure, financial grade data center in Silver Spring, Maryland. Now featuring more than 90,000 sq ft of raised floor, BYTEGRID is the largest multi-tenant data center facility in Maryland. It features new UPS systems providing a total of nine (9) megawatts of critical load power, cooling systems that exceed Tier III requirements for concurrent maintainability and fault tolerance, with future planned expansions to double critical load power capacity.
