“It’s amazing that a top-five enterprise market relies on services hundreds of miles away for critical IT infrastructure,” Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer, EdgeConneX said in a statement.  “Effective cloud solutions, and thus adoption by enterprises, depends on reliable, fast and secure connectivity.  Furthermore, an effective hybrid implementation is still one that is local to the customer. Boston marks our third roll out of local cloud services, following the May and June announcements of Portland and Detroit, respectively. We plan to continue rolling out these services across our entire global EDC footprint.”
