Today, we’re taking a look back at the progress we’ve made with the strategic investment partnership we forged with our RLEC and ILEC partners across the country. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the launch of the partnership and the impact its had on Codero and our RLEC partners, we are proud to officially announce that this venture has proven to be very successful. The progress we’ve made cements Codero’s position as the leading provider of hosting services for the RLEC and ILEC markets.
AUSTIN, TEXAS, APRIL 7, 2016 – Less than one year after the acquisition by a consortium of 32 regional telecom and broadband providers, Codero Hosting has extended its world-class hosting infrastructure and solutions to rural and regional markets across the country. A leading provider of on-demand hybrid cloud hosting services, Codero has successfully enabled and integrated its products with its 32 telecom investors to reach more than 350,000 new business customers and offer superior hosting services locally.
Over the past year, all 32 of Codero’s RLEC and ILEC investors have signed on to become Codero Preferred Channel Partners and sell Codero products in their markets, reaching nearly one-fifth of the U.S. population directly.
“By collaborating with our new investors, we successfully tackled the previously daunting challenges of accessing and delivering cutting-edge IT services and solutions to businesses in rural and regional markets across the country,” said Emil Sayegh, Chairman and CEO of Codero Hosting. “Through intensive training and the integration of our products with those of our investors, we are well ahead of schedule in delivering technology expertise and customized hosting services for millions of customers across the country that would otherwise be missed. We are proud to be an essential resource for our partners to approach all things cloud and deliver these solutions closer to the ‘edge’.”
The partnership with Codero enables its investors to provide hosting and cloud services as extensions of their existing offerings. For example, investor Dakota Carrier Network (DCN) brought in Codero to work with Vault 1440™, provider of backup and recovery solutions, to migrate its business from a traditional colocation solution to a Codero hosted solution.
“As a longtime DCN customer we welcomed the opportunity to use a DCN partner for hosting. The transition to Codero was quick and easy and the superior service allows us to seamlessly scale and cut costs. We look forward to a long relationship with DCN and Codero,” said Darrin S. Lee, Founder and President of Vault 1440.
In addition to delivering Codero services to their customer base, Codero’s RLEC investors have embraced the technology for themselves, migrating some mission critical applications to Codero.
“Monitoring broadband peering connections are vital to our success. By hosting a network monitoring application in the cloud with Codero we can monitor our connectivity from a routing perspective, which allows us to make routing changes on the fly and improve the overall customer satisfaction for our subscribers,” said Jimmy Blevins, CEO of Skyline Membership Corporation, a telecom cooperative in Western North Carolina.
Codero will officially extend its infrastructure into the rural markets this quarter by creating a footprint in DCN’s carrier class hardened data center that will enable cloud and hosting closer to the “edge” for customers in the Dakotas.
