Alpheus Launches Low Cost, High Value Data Center Bundles

Houston, Texas (November 16, 2009)

HOUSTON – Alpheus Communications is pleased to announce low cost, value rich colocation and connectivity pricing for Enterprise customers.

For years, Alpheus has served Carriers with the right network architecture, price point and quality of service, and now our robust network is available to Enterprise businesses as part of new data center bundles.

For a limited time, Alpheus is offering a full cabinet, power and 10 Mbps of internet access in their Houston or Austin data centers for under $1,000 per month. Half cabinets with power and 10 Mbps of internet access are also available. For businesses seeking full redundancy, Alpheus has bundled a full cabinet in both the Houston and Austin data centers with power, 10 Mbps of internet access in each location and a 100 Mbps Metro Ethernet connection between the data centers. Connectivity from the data centers to customer headquarters or branch location can be added at highly competitive rates.

“The network centric, small to medium sized business community has asked for affordable colocation space, high bandwidth internet access and flexible outside connectivity options. Until now, data center operators mostly geared their offers and pricing toward large cage space and high cabinet count opportunities,” said Gary Bartkus, Alpheus VP of Enterprise Sales & Marketing. “Our new bundles and consolidated billing simplify business process and the migration of mission critical network infrastructure from the in-house IT closet to our secure data center environment, with a limitless amount of connectivity options through our carrier grade network,” added Bartkus.
