Modrus chooses CityFibre to connect data centres
IT and telecoms services provider Modrus is gaining a new fibre infrastructure from CityFibre, one of the UK’s leading independent fibre infrastructure providers. Connecting its head office and main operating centre in the city of Bournemouth with its three datacentres in London, the new link will replace Modrus’ existing BT connection to become its new primary link, enabling the company to improve its customer service with faster server set-ups. 'We currently have 700 customer servers in our datacentres, and our Bournemouth-based, 40-strong technical teams are building new server set-ups at a rate of 50 to 100 per month. The new CityFibre high-capacity, high-speed fibre link has important business benefits for us because of its impact on the rate at which the team can work. No longer having to deal with slower (100Mb) data transmission will hugely increase the speed and efficiency of the teams,' said Edward Armitage, director at Modrus. Modrus said it chose the CityFibre fibre infrastructure above other suppliers because of the flexibility it offers and its competitive pricing. 'With the CityFibre solution, we can define the speed of the line ourselves by the equipment we choose to put on each end, added Armitage. 'This gives us significant flexibility going forward and, along with the great price and excellent installation and hook-up service provided by CityFibre, was a major reason for choosing its solution.'
