The Best of Colocation and Cloud

Markley’s combination of virtual and physical resources offers clients an Infrastructure-as-a-Service compute-and-storage platform that can be seamlessly integrated with their dedicated colocation cabinets, cages and suites.

Offering Backup-as-a-Service, Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service and Storage-as-a-Service, Markley’s Hybrid Cloud provides seamless integration of critical IT systems. Clients can deliver products and services to end-users through Markley Cloud Services while still running back-end systems on dedicated colocation infrastructure in Boston or Lowell. This unified computing environment empowers clients to further maximize compute efficiencies, while better managing costs and capacity planning.

Key Features

  • Ability to provide both colocation and cloud services
  • Free cross connect between colocation and cloud
  • No charge for data egressing the cloud when directly connected (MCS Connect)
  • Disaster recovery between colocation equipment and cloud assets in other cities
  • Ability to connect at layer 2 for easy merging of physical and virtual assets (even using existing IP address space)
“The superiority of the Markley Group value proposition was readily apparent from the outset. The scale and caliber of their infrastructure along with their team based approach and exceptional pre and post-sales support continues to validate ASA’s decision to make them a strategic partner.”
